Add the finishing touches to your look with this brush that dusts, wipes, and redistributes powders along your features. The flat fan shape allows for even and soft definition, making it an ideal tool for gently sweeping bronzing powder, illuminator, or even tinted moisturizer on the face. A must-have for clean-up, this brush can also be used to fan away excess product like eye makeup fallout, without leaving traces in its wake.
Sephora Pro Fan Brush (#65) ($27.00) is a large, fluffy fan brush. The brush head is 38mm in length, 70mm in width, and 7mm in thickness. It has a metal ferrule that’s pinched and overlays part of the base of the bristles. It has a total brush length of almost 8 inches or 20 centimeters. It’s a very fluffy, somewhat splayed brush. I wish it kept its shape just a bit more along the edges, but given the way I tend to apply using this, it doesn’t really impact the application. I typically use fan brushes for very light application of highlighters and blushes; if you’re working with an intensely pigmented blush that you only want a subtle look from, a fan brush (or stippling brush) works well. Fan brushes do the same for an overly frosted or too pigmented highlighter so you can get a glowing look without emphasizing pores. It can, of course, be used however you so desire and with a variety of powder products. It could be used with cream products, but I think it’s a little large so it doesn’t offer as much precision as I’d like when working with creams.
