I apply the tints and the Sun Beam slightly differently. For the tints, I swipe a line from the apple of my cheek out. Then I quickly rub it in with a circular motion to cover the area. You want to move quick, or the line will be visible all day. For the Sun Beam, I use small dots on the tops of my cheek bone out to my temples, and then blend it in.
All three of these are beautiful on, and so quick, easy and long wearing!
I have a round face so I use about 5 dots of tint on the apple of my cheek (placed evenly like a die) and 4 more dots following the cheekbone towards my temple. I blend the 5 dots first in a circular motion around the apple (staying high on the bone) and blend upwards towards my temple.
By the time I've done the opposite cheek, I return to the first cheek and dot a row of the sun beam (4 or 5 dots) on the cheekbone from the apple to the temple and blend. Then I apply 4 dots horizontally on my brow bone, blend, and swipe the blending finger across the top of my nose and the center of my chin to finish.
I tried a lot of ways to apply the tint and highlighter. Fingers work the best because the tint stains so so quickly!
Either take the tint put it on the back of your hand and use a blush brush to apply, a sponge (cosmetic), beauty blender, or put it straight on the face and blend with fingers!
Apply small dabs/dots along the area and then work quickly to blend together with fingers or a foundations brush. Apply before foundation, or after foundation if you're more confident. Apply all face powders AFTER using the liquids.

I do "cat whiskers" from the apple of my cheek to my hairline at the top of my ear. I blend back starting at the apple of my cheek and have never had any problem with the blending. Also you can build up the color so if it is to light just do it again.

I apply them as both a lip and cheek tint except the Sun bronzer which I only use as a highlight. That one I put a couple dabs on my cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin and blended. It gives me a nice sun kissed look for night time.
I am still playing around with the best way to apply these. I have used my fingers to blend out and also a stippling brush (elf). I feel my fingers work better, not sure if other brushes would be better though.
Check out YouTube, there are a number of reviews/tutorials that will help!
For the Posie and Cha Cha tints, apply them in stripes directly on cheeks and blend quickly in circular motions. I recommend doing one cheek at a time to avoid uneven drying or streaking. Or, apply the product to your finger first, and then blend on cheeks. You can apply under or over makeup, depending on preference. i prefer to apply to cheeks after moisturizing skin, apply my powder foundation, then sweep a complementing blush on top (like Coralista). Then I apply highlighter last. You can apply over makeup for a deeper stain.
For the Sun Beam highlighter, dot sparingly on cheekbones and brow bones and blend. For lips, simply swipe on dry, clean lips and use fingers to blend and even out. I like to apply Rosebud salve over for a natural look, or lipgloss over for more color. Hope this helps!
The best way to apply these in my opinion is with your finger tips. Dab on a few dots with the brush and smooth it out with a tapping motion applying the product upwards.
