I Tried All 61 Morphe Makeup Brushes From the Elite II Collection—These Are the Top 10 Worth Buying
1. E5 Pro Mini Fan Brush ($14): For those of us who love highlighting but don’t want to look like our cheekbones are shooting lasers at everyone who passes by, I swear by this brush. It’s shaped like a typical fan brush but it’s much thicker so your highlight gets diffused over your skin a little more than with a thin, precise brush.
2. E3 Precision Pointed Powder ($17): It's nice and fluffy but has enough precision to target the right areas of my face with my more colorful products. It’s awesome for blush because it’s not too dense, so I get a nice natural flush rather than a ton of pigment on the apples of my cheeks.
3. E44 Round Deluxe Buffer ($17): For days when I’m wearing BB cream or just an illuminating concealer on certain parts of my face (which is most days), I like a looser foundation brush. It’s not super dense so it blends any product in more naturally, meaning you can still see my skin underneath but it looks even.
4. E6 Premium Flat Buffer ($15): There are a million options for foundation application, but when I’m going for a full coverage foundation, I love a flat-top brush. It really buffs everything into my skin without letting too much product sink into the brush. Plus, the flat top makes me look airbrushed instead of giving me those foundation streaks a lot of brushes do.
5. E48 Mini Pointed Powder ($9): This brush fits right under my eye to set my concealer. Dewy skin is in, so there’s no need to powder your whole face. That’s why I like something smaller to get just the parts I need a little powder on.
6. E23 Deluxe Blender ($7): I’m a blending brush junkie thanks to Beyoncé's makeup artist's recommendation. In my opinion: the fluffier, the better. This one is super soft and applies shadow like nobody’s business. I love sweeping it across my lid to create the perfect natural eye during the day and a more dramatic smoky eye at night.
7. E14 Oval Shadow ($7): I love this fluffy brush because it’s flat, so I can pack color on my lid with the side of the bristles and then blend it out with the top of the brush. It’s definitely a multi-tasker and great for days when I need to slap some shadow on my eyes and run out the door.
8. E18 Round Crease ($6): This pencil brush rocks. I’m a big fan of adding someshadow on my lower lash line to give my look a subtle smoke. This brush adds just enough and never makes the line too harsh. It’s also great for adding pigment to my crease on days when I'm going for a more severe look.
9. E26 Oval Foundation/Concealer ($13): This two-in-one concealer brush is amazing!Applying under-eye concealer with a brush is a must, so I pack it on with the smaller end and blend everything out with the bigger end. The flat shape works to keep the coverage full without looking unnatural.
10. E29 Angled Brow/Spoolie ($4): Another two for one deal. This brow and liner brush has saved my life a few times. I can’t stand having messy brows so even when I don’t have time to fill them in, I comb through them so they look more put-together and full. The angled liner end is great for gel liner or just adding some shadow at my lash line or filling in the sparse parts of my brows.
