Mac 109 for contouring
Also, I received a very dark (but beautiful) bronzer which was impossible to use
One of the gurus adviced to use a stippling brush for a light coverage and it really works with dusting just a little bit of bronzer over your face)

I use a Bare Escentuals all over face brush that came in a set. It sat it my drawer useless one day til I figured out what it was for. It’s probably one of the best bronzer brushes I had ever had. Previously, I was using a MAC 134. I still sometimes go back to it if I want to be less precise.

Depends what look im going for, either a ss129 or ss150 if i want just a all over healthy color. My fave is the ELF bronzer that comes as a duo! So cheap and a great alternative to NARS Laguna!

For contouring I use a drugstore brush similar to to MAC 165, and for overall warmth I use the ELF complexion brush, which is basically a paddle brush.
