If you’ve read any of my posts which are about different makeup looks with a step to step guide of how I created them, then you’ll probably know a big chunk of the brushes I use come from Morphe. I love Morphe makeup brushes as they are excellent quality but also pretty affordable compared to some brands out there! I wanted to share with you my absolute favourite brushes from the band.
All of the brushes in the post are from the 15 piece Vegan set which is a perfect set to own. I am in love with the set!! In this post I’ll give a little review on 9 of the brushes that I reach for the most. If you want this set for yourself, you can get it here for £45.
s25 – I use this brush every single day to do my eyebrows with a pomade. It’s my favourite one because it is super small so it’s easy to use for every single detail. It also has a spoolie on the other end of the brush which makes it ideal – I don’t have to be switching my brush every few minutes for a spoolie!
s30 – I love this brush to pack on those shimmer shades onto my eyelid. It is dense and sturdy. The tip is also good when you want to apply a precise line to your lower lashes.
s20 – This is a tiny brush which is super versatile. It is described on the website as a ‘socket brush’ which can be used to precisely create a smokey eye. I do like to use it on the lid but I also find myself using it to apply highlight in the inner corner of my eye and on my brow bone.
s27 – I don’t think I ever do an eyeshadow look without using this brush. It is a lovely fluffy tapered brush which is absolutely perfect for blending out shadows! I like to use it in my crease roughly to add a nice sweep of colour.
s12 – This is similar to the s27 but smaller so I use this one in my crease if I want something more precise. I also use it on my outer corner when I want to add a deeper colour to the look.
s15 – This is the biggest brush in the set and is ideal to apply either face powder or bronzer for a wash of colour. I personally use this with my Rimmel stay matte powder. It is really soft and doesn’t scratch my face at all.
s13 – This brush recently featured on my March Favourites 2017. It is my favourite brush to contour with. It is slightly bigger than a normal contour brush but the shape is perfect to create a chiseled look. I like to use a slightly bigger brush like this one as I like the contour to be more dispersed and natural looking.
s26 – The s26 is basically a smaller version of the s13. I use this to apply highlight to my cheek bones and cupids bow. I like how soft it is. It works best with a highlighter that creates a sheen creamy highlight – rather than a glittery one!
s4 – The perfect concealer brush! just the right shape to apply concealer under the eyes. I like to add it on with this, blend it out a bit and then finish the blending with a beauty blender / sponge.
All of these brushes I wash at least once every two weeks (there’s nothing better than a fresh set!) – I always use either baby shampoo or anti bacterial hand soap. It’s super important to wash your brushes to avoid the spread of bacteria.
