I bought a spatula from MUFE, and would scoop out some colors to put on the back of my palms and then use a thin eyeliner / shadow brush or finger tips to apply the color to my face.
By scooping the color out, it prevents bacteria from contaminating the whole thing... cause this palette will last you a while.

I used a very thin eyeliner brush because I wanted the color as closest to the lashes as possible.

If you're doing fine-detailed work, for face painting, or otherwise, then use a small eye-lining brush. If you need to cover more space, then use a flat shading eyeshadow brush. This will help you to apply the colors more evenly and smoothly. If you're doing your whole face, or more than 1/4 of your face one particular color, I'd recommend using a beauty sponge. (The Sephora brand one is really good!)...Just don't forget to wipe your brushes in between colors to prevent contamination! (You can use a make-up removal wipe or a paper towel and olive oil to remove the grease paint) =)
Brushes made for cream applications work best. Such as eyeliner, lip, complexion brushes. Look for a brush with synthetic bristles that are tight, compact and smooth. Which brush you choose will depend on what look you are trying to achieve. An eyeliner brush will create a thin, clean line, whereas a concealer or foundation brush will apply a lot more product for covering a bigger surface area.
