You can apply it all over your face with a big fluffy brush. I would stay away from Faux Tan and Warmth because those are too dark and orange for fair skin. I would go with Clear radiance, it is a sheer transluscent glow and you can't go wrong.

I've also found the 'Angled Face Brush' to be especially effective in applying these specific colors. It may take a day or two at most to get used to, but I feel it's a great brush for beginners being introduced to the All-Over Face colors. The angle of the brush allows you to apply a precise sweep just about anywhere, and the bristles flow nicely against the contours of the cheeks, forehead and temples, eye area and even the jawline. If you're looking to conserve money as the brushes can be expensive, this is a great one to invest in as it is great for blush as well.

First of all if you are new to BE colors, I know how it can be confusing wondering what you should "use" to apply this or that! Did you buy the "beginners" kit? It comes with a great little DVD that tells you all you need to know and more about application! With that said, even if you did not buy the kit; I too have a fair complexion. In the language of most other cosmetic companies, that usually mean "ivory', and "good luck to you" if it didn't match your skin very well, well you were stuck with bottles upon bottles in a drawer somewhere in your powder room. With BE, If you buy the "light" kit , it does come with "2" slightly different shades that do match most people(either one or the other or with mixing the two together).So, But, unfortunately, I found that the "light" color kit was "too" dark for me. I now buy a color called "Fairly Light" off the shelf by itself. It's a perfect match for me because it is both light in color ,and it' has a neutral base with no 'pink' overtones mixed in. If you "do" have pink undertones to your skin and you are very fair then try "Fair." Application is important and you 'must' have a brush or two or three!(LOL) Again I talk about the beginners kit because it gives you a nice variety of brushes to get you started at such a great price. I use the Handi-Buki brush that came in the kit to apply my mineral foundation. A few sprinkles mixed around in the lid to cover the outer layer of bristles (of the handi-buki )and that is all you need. I apply going down my nose first (taking stock of redness and discolorations there as I go)and outward from there to your cheeks, chin,forehead,etc. All of this takes a very short time! Now,If you have any blemishes,birthmarks,redness,etc to cover up ;you can take the "maximum coverage concealer brush"(also in the beginners kit) to those areas "before" you do your all over mineral foundation. Just dip it into your mineral foundation and dot over areas you wish to cover,feather out and blend in. Yes it will cover wonderfully and it will stay put all day. So to answer your question in regards to application? Yes,Yes! You need the wonderful brush(es) that come either with the kit or you can buy them one at a time if you like. There are many different brushes to choose from as you begin to enjoy using the BE products and trying different techniques that suit you personally! Don't forget to top everything off with that Minderal Veil! Just a sheer sweep of Mineral Veil across your nose, forehead,and cheeks and you will have that wonderful "lit from within" or "candle-lit" glow that we are all so familiar with!! To me, Mineral Veil is a must! It just makes your skin seem flawless and seemless! It doesn't look like a mask and it is feathery light!Use a nice fluffy "Kabuki" brush and invest in a tiny travel size one too if you travel. Once you get the knack of the application down, you will be amazed at how fast you are out of that door in the morning! The time saved is amazing! You will never go back to liquid formulas again! Good luck to you and remember to have fun as you learn!

There is actually a special brush that BareMinerals makes for this "All-Over Face Color." If you look at the BareMinerals page (you can use the drop down box to go to the brand) there will be a "Tools" section. In there will be a brush that has super light., long straight bristles. The tips are white I believe too, that might help. This brush allows a light dusting to the cheeks, forehead, chin... ect. This product is used to give your face color wherever you might need it. So like a blush or bronzer.
