Don't give up on warmth

Pros: potent
Way back when I first started using Bare Minerals, the kit I received had a small sample of warmth in it. Like a few others I see leaving reviews on here, I thought it seemed far too dark for my fair skintone, and I gave up on using it. However, as I became more addicted to BE and started experimenting with colors more, and learned you do not need to use much of any BE product to get the look you want, I learned how to use a _tiny_ bit of warmth on an angled face brush or a blush brush with great results. Then I discovered something even better. See, my skin is strange in that I have light patches under my eyes (I still get dark circles, but the skin around my eyes seems to be more translucent or something) that I never did like the look of, and always drove me crazy. One day, I was applying warmth as usual and decided to try using it to conceal my 'light circles'. It worked perfectly! I love using it now to even out my skintone and darken my lighter spots after I apply foundation. For those of you that have uneven patches of skin, try using a little warmth to even things up. It only takes a tiny amount (I just barely touch the tips of some of the brush bristles to the minerals) to make a difference.

How to Keep This from Going On Too Dark
Help! I'd love to add just a little warmth to my face, as this product is designed to do. But it goes on too dark, so I look oddly dark on my face. I've tried putting it on with the fan brush, but then I don't see any additional color in my face at all.

Any tips and tricks in terms of applicator brush to apply it with and how to get the color just right?

(FYI -- I'm a warm "light" -- I use Fairly Light if I'm really pale, but usually I'm Golden Fair, or Light.)

Thanks!
I use an angled blush brush if I'm using it in a specific area or a flawless application face brush if I'm going more all-over. I imagine any of the brushes for sheer coverage would be good, too. It is really easy to get too much, though. With the brushes I use, I just barely touch the tips of some of the bristles to the warmth, and even then I sometimes tap some off. The trick is to just get a tiny bit. You can always add more. ;-)

Hope that helps!

Where is Warmth meant to be put on the cheeks?
I've heard about a million different explanation for applying Warmth, and I'd like to hear what you all think. Where does Warmth go on the cheeks? On top for a highlight? In the middle for some extra color? In the hollows for a more sculpted cheek look?
Answer: D. All of the above.
Honestly, you can use it wherever you want. It can be used for all the things you mentioned. I've used it for all of those and then some. I even use it under my eyes where my skin is lighter to make my skintone more even. Have fun and experiment with it! Use it wherever you think it looks good!
