As a Bronzer: sweep brush through all five shades and dust lightly over face where light naturally hits for the most flattering look.
As a Blush: sweep through all five shades and dust lightly over cheeks to highlight and accentuate.
As an Eye Shadow: to add sheen to eyes, use a medium shade on the eyelid and a dark shade in the crease of the eyelid to contour, add a highlighting effect by applying the lightest shade in the compact just under the brows.
I have fair skin, and this isn't too dark on me. I use the lighter end for highlight, and the darker end as a bronzer. I swirl them all together if I want to add an all over face color. I haven't used these as eyeshadows yet, but they can definitely used for multiple uses. I would highly recommend this product.
