My Favorite Morphe Brushes

I recently stocked up big time on Morphe brushes and have been in love with how beautifully they apply my products. I also love that they don’t cost a fortune. By popular request, here are my faves and what I use them for:

  • M439 – Foundation; full, domed synthetic brush to achieve an airbrushed finish.
  • R2 – Setting powder; a round, soft synthetic brush to lock my foundation (with Laura Mercier setting powder).
  • M438 – Setting undereye area; the tapered bristles are perfect for setting the undereye smoothly (with Laura Mercier undereye brightening powder).
  • G0 – Finishing powder; once my makeup is done, I use this brush to sweep a finishing powder (like Hourglass Ambient Light) to help soften and blur lines and give my face an airbrushed look.
  • G8 – Blush; this super-soft tapered brush is perfect for blush.
  • G4 – Bronzer; dense and angled for a beautiful, even bronzy finish.
  • M441 – Transition shadow; this is the first brush I start with as I begin to sweep a soft color over my eye, which will begin to help merge colors as I start adding darker shades.
  • E17 – Crease shadow; with a defined point perfect for targeted crease application, this is the next brush I use after transition.
  • E61 – Highlighter; ideal for precise highlighter application.
  • R37 – Buffing brush; I use to help diffuse colors and blend out any harsh lines
  • M321 – Outer V;  I love this brush to apply deeper shadow into my outer V. I even use this for under-eye shadow.
  • G10 – Shimmery shadow; great for applying shimmery/foiled shadows. I wet the brush a bit before using… you can use a setting spray or a water mist.
  • G15 – Undereye shadow; this is perfect for more precise application of undereye shadow.

Cleaning brushes

I clean my brushes two ways.

For a quick daily clean (if needed), I use Sephora’s brush cleaner. I spray cleaner into a dry towel and swirl the brush onto it to clean. It’s really fast and easy.

For a more thorough clean (weekly), I use a brush shampoo I picked up on Amazon. I wet the brush a bit and swirl it against the shampoo, then I swirl and swipe against this cleaning pad. This gives the brushes a nice, deep clean while also conditioning the bristles. I squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry them overnight.


Note: I use code NIKKIE (one of my favorite YouTubers) to get 10% off my purchase.
