        Wow, I was in the market for a good setting brush and I really like it. It's small so it can fit underneath your eyes. Which is what I use it for. But it can also be used to apply highlighter. I know that KathleenLights (makeup youtuber) uses it for that purpose.

            I bought this product and automatically applied the highlighter I purchased along with it and OH MY GAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! It looked super pretty and although I wanted to use it to set my t-zone, I think I like it to highlight instead.

                        A:

                        Hi T,

                        Thanks for your question. I love the Setting brush for a lot of things: concealer, highlighter, blending out contour lines; however, I would probably recommend a different brush for bronzer.

                        Because you want to create a more natural, sun-kissed look, I tend to think that larger brush heads covering a bigger area is the way to go. I love our Bold Metals Powder Brush for a bronzer and use mine every day (http://www.ulta.com/bold-metals-100-arched-powder-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11831007).

                        I would also recommend our Real Techniques brush for a bronzer brush as well (http://www.ulta.com/powder-brush?productId=xlsImpprod3220077). Definitely something with a lot of bristles that are "fluffier" and less concentrated for bronzer.

                        Thanks! Hope that helps!

                        Hi Yarely,

                        Great question! This is one of our most multi-functional brushes and I, personally, don't know how I lived without it for all these years! :)

                        One of the best uses for this brush is to apply highlighter when you are going for a highlight/contour look. Because of the way the bristles are cut, it doesn't pick up too much product overall. Additionally, because the bristles are synthetic (cruelty-free), it doesn't have the porous nature that real hair bristles do and you will find more product on your face, rather than staying in your brush.

                        Overall, I think you would be really happy with this brush used for highlighting.

                        Thanks!

                      I'm planning on purchasing the "sculpting brush" from Real Techniques to contour my face with bronzer.
                      I was wondering whether the "sculpting brush" or this brush (setting brush) would work best to contour my nose, as well as blend? What would you recommend for contouring the nose with bronzer?

                        A:

                        Hi Beauty Love,

                        That is such a great question! I had to stop and think for a moment because I love BOTH of those brushes so much! The Sculpting Brush is going to be much better for the larger areas of your face (cheeks, forehead, chin) where you want that contoured look. But, I think you will want a smaller brush head for contouring your nose and you will probably see better, more precise results with the Setting Brush.

                        One other brush you might want to consider for contouring your nose is the Foundation Brush. It has angled bristles (like the Sculpting Brush), but is not quite as large. I think you would be happy with either the Setting of the Foundation brush - and please let us know how it works for you!!
