If you're wondering how to use a fan makeup brush, it's time to listen up because they're well worth making the extra room in your makeup bag for.

So what's the hype about? Well, namely the fact it can be used in an array of ways. Most importantly, though, it has the ability (when equipped with the right product, hint hint) to leave your skin looking beautifully flawless.

Here are five ways to use a fan makeup brush...

1. Powder

Did you know that you can use a fan makeup brush to apply finishing powder? You can either sweep it all over your face or, if your skin is starting to look a little shiny, lightly dust some finishing powder over your T-zone.

2. Dust Away Eyeshadow Fallout

You've just finished applying the perfect smoky eye, but are left with specks of the shadow all over your under-eye area. Instead of trying to remove it with your fingers and smudging it, use your Spectrum fan brush to gently dust it away without making a mess.

3. Highlighter

You can also use a fan makeup brush to highlight your features. Simply swirl the brush in your powder highlighter, tap off any excess then lightly dust it along the tops of your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose.

4. Blending
