What is the best way to apply this bronzer?
This is the first bronzer I've ever purchased. Since it's fall, I just want a natural glow, so please tell me what kind of brush I should use to apply it. I've been using a medium blush brush but that doesn't seem right. Also, do I put it on lightly all over (like a matte powder), or just focus on certain areas of my face? Thanks!!

A brush will always depend on yourself and what you want, the bigger though less control, I use a blush brush in the hollows of my cheeks then blend but usually brushes are cut differently but the same hair. From my knowledge of makeup though do not put it over or you will look like an ompaloopa, the sun doesn't tan you the same all over it hits key points (Contour points) so the T zone on you face should go without watch some videos on youtube for more specific areas but I do cheek hollows jaw line and up the side temples blended to the forehead, watch the forehead because that's where you can really screw up if you cover the same because its so much bare skin, even if you don't notice other people will and you will in pictures.

The best way to apply by far is the following. You make a 3 shape starting from the hairline to the apples of the cheeks down to the jawline. You do the same on the other side- make sure you blend blend blend to create the most natural finish. If you want a more glamourous look make a 'w' shape in the middle of the face starting from the left side of the face to the apples of your cheeks, nose and back up to create that 'w' shape. That adds a bit more of a glam look. You can also just use it to contour the cheekbones and jawline if you have fair skin. Good luck!

Bobbi Brown bonzer brush is perfect for this. Watch Monika Blunder on youtube for bronzer application.
I personally love applying this bronzer with a Sigma F20 Large Powder Brush. It is a synthetic (meaning it has black hairs), large powder brush. You could use any powder brush, but just make sure its huge. It really makes this product look more natural and airbrushed. You could also use a duo powder brush (black and white hairs) which would apply this bronzer even lighter.
I know you said you use a medium blush brush, but try the 'blush brush' from Real Techniques. It's only about $10 and perfect for what you need. :)

I use a bigger powder brush and take it just under my cheek bones, up to my temples, and then along the jaw line. It's buildable, so you can start very subtle and apply more product to get the result you want. It never looks muddy or dirty on me, even when I go dramatic with it.

I use the Sephora #59 brush. I contour my cheeks a bit, apply some lightly on my temples, nose, chin, and jawline. After picking up product on the brush, I always tap off the excess.
