I find this brush SO big, what is the best way to use it?
I ordered this online based on the great reviews after I lost my other concealer brush. I was surprised how gigantic it is as my other brush was quite small and flat. I use Stila's concealer which is a thick cream in a tube that needs to be squeezed out. I like it to cover my undereye circles. Any tips? Should I put it directly on the brush, or on the back of my hand, etc. etc., and what is the best way to actually use the brush under my eye?

Actially, this a nice size for a concealer brush, but it also works great for contouring brush.

I like applying my nars creamy concealer right in the inner corner, the nars is a bit of a thick consistency, I look up and then take my brush and just blend the concealer down and over :) I really do like the brush, if you feel it's to big try using it to conceal those unwanted pimples or around the nose the little areas where a bigger brush would be hard to reach :)
I usually just make a series of small dots (kinda like the shape of the wifi logo, really) under my eye from the tube directly, being careful not to make the dots too large, and then blend with the brush accordingly.
i recommend putting the product on the back of your hand and then using a rolling motion with mainly the side near the top of the brush to apply it. Using the rolling motion will apply it evenly and blend it into the foundation nicely!
While some indicate putting the concealer onto your face first and then using the brush, I personally feel that by doing this, you lose the control about how much coverage you wish on your face and take away this brush's marvelous ability to easily build up to the coverage you require.
I simply dab it into my concealer straight out of the pot (if a cream formulation) or swipe over a powder pot and onto the face.

It is best when you add the concealer to your face first then use this brush to blend it out.

I would dab on a few spots of the concealer and let this brush do the work, it might take some getting used to but it really works great for blending

I thought it was too big for use around my eyes when I got it home, also. But after using it a few times, I realized it was perfect. When I went back to use my smaller brush for concealer I realized that my smaller brush had been pushing product into my creases. Something that is almost impossible to do with the larger brush. I use Boiing on my eyes, which is a thick concealer in a pot, so I just dab the brush right into the pot and onto the area. But when I use my larger brush to apply my BB cream from the tube to my face, I always squeeze a dab the size of my pinky nail onto the back of my hand and dab it straight from there and then onto my face for a flawless look.
