Morphe Brushes are one of, if not, my favourite brand of makeup brushes. They produce an extensive range of brushes from face through to eyes (as well as some great eyeshadows too) that are not only great in quality, they are extremely affordable too so they are accessible to the masses. They only issue is that they aren’t so readily available here in the UK but one or two websites such as the likes of Beauty Bay have recently picked them up so it’s not as hard as it used to be to get your hands on them (they just don’t stock the full range as yet). In my video, I give you the lowdown of my absolute favourite face and eye brushes from Morphe Brushes so if you’ve been wanting to get your hands on them and giving them a try, then this video is a must see!
Here are the favourite brushes featured in my video:
E27 – Pro Round Blender. The Blender Upper. This is the brush I like to use as an after step to blend out any harsh edges. It’s the finishing brush after the shadows have been applied and blending. Its big, fluffy and super soft.
E36 Detail Crease – The Smooth Under Eye Definer – I would think most would use this as a pencil brush to get up close to those lashes and I’m no different. However, this is different to most conventional pencil brushes as the hair bristles slightly longer and fluffy so does a great job at softly blending out shadow to create that diffused, hazy eye along the lash line. Don’t expect a defined application with this brush. This brush is all about soft and smokey.
M433 Pro Firm Blending Fluff– The Mac 217 Dupe. This brush is great for applying eyeshadow as well as blending and I love a multi-tasker. It’s slightly more dense than the Mac 217 and has a slightly more flatter edge and that’s where it has one over the 217 when it comes to packing on the colour.
E22 Pointed Blender – The Multi-Tasking Eye Brush. This is another great multi-tasker. It has the fluffy, full body for making blending a breeze yet it’s tapered, pointed tip makes precision application a piece of cake. Hence why I like to use it to apply shadow into the crease whilst simultaneously allowing the shorter bristles to do the blending out.
G28 Flat Definer – The Lash Definer. It’s razor thin, flat shape makes it great for defining the lash line. No other brush I’ve ever used has allowed me to get so up close to the lashes to create a really defined line and it’s soft and gentle which for me is important the closer to the eyeballs you get.
M501 Pro Pointed Blender. The Highlighting Brush. This brush is the perfect size to hit the tops of the cheek bones for that killer highlight that you can see from the moon. It’s fluffy enough to blend but still dense enough to hold the right amount of product. And the size of it? On point. Size matters.
M438 Pointed Contour. The Undereye Setter. Perfect to hit up the under eye area to set your concealer in place for a crease free zone. It’s pointed tip means you can really get into the inner corners of the eyes. It’s absolutely replaced my Real Techniques Setting Brush as it’s much softer, has a bit more of a bend to it and is slightly bigger which means it gets the job done quicker.
G2 Pointed Buffer. The Under Eye Blender. This has replaced the much coveted Sigma F86 Tapered Kabuki Brush to be the brush I turn to, to blend out my under eye concealer (when I’m not using my Real Techniques Complexion Sponge which I have been loving again recently). It’s smaller, a better fit ergonomically, and better at mopping up excess product. It’s also a great fit around the contours of the nose.
E31 Deluxe Flat Buffer. The Speedy Foundation Brush. It’s so large that it cuts down the time it takes to apply and blend out your base in half. It covers a larger surface area and is so soft, it’s always a pleasure to use. It also gives a lighter coverage compared to a more dense brush like the M439 Deluxe Buffer so if you prefer a more sheer, natural finish to your complexion then this brush is certainly worth checking out.
E2 Round Powder. The Bronzing Powder Brush. It’s a nice size to get around the face especially around my big ol’ round face. It’s soft and fluffy so you get a nice, even application. This ones for when you really want to get your glow on.
MB5 Deluxe Duo Foundation. The Sheer Glow Brush. This is technically a foundation brush but hell when do I ever stick to using the right brushes for what it’s designed for? I like to use the MB5 for when I am using a seriously pigmented product such as the Hourglass Ambient Bronzing Powder because of the light, flimsy nature of the bristles, you cannot ever risk picking up too much product and fear that you will end up looking like you’ve hit the sun bed too hard.
E4 Angled Contour. The Blush Brush. The angled shape of this brush makes it look so unique. I think it’s a great one for blush because it’s slanted head which is wider at one end. The wider end holds most of the product and where I tend to place on the apples of my cheeks which are quite generous in proportion. I also think this would probably make a great brush for contouring (possibly what it’s design to do judging by the name?) but I’ve not yet tried it for that.
