Every beauty-lover deserves elite artistry and high performance craftsmanship, and who better than Morphe X Ariel Tejada to do just that? Master seamless blends while creating his signature sculpted complexion with face-defining highlights and contours.   

Here’s what Ariel Tejada himself had to say about this new launch – then get to work on crafting your own artistry with these elevated makeup brushes. 

Q: What was your vision behind launching these Ariel makeup brushes with Morphe? 

A: I received so many requests to have my brushes available individually outside of my kits, so in response I curated my top five most essential and popular brushes to be available and sold separately. Also, I wanted to make sure that my brushes were accessible for everyone’s budget. I wanted to bring through singles to make sure people could have access to my most essential brushes.

Q: What looks would you love to see on the beauty-lovers who purchase your Morphe X Ariel brushes? 

A: The special thing about these brushes is that they create all sorts of artistry, whether you want a more subtle and soft glam or something bolder these brushes allow creators to express themselves however they’d like. That was my goal with my collection, I wanted to provide people with the most versatile, high-performance brushes that help you achieve any glam you desire. 

Q: What is it about these Morphe X Ariel brushes that make them yours? What is it about the material, bristles, or shapes that say Ariel? 

A: Each brush in my Morphe X Ariel brush set collection has been handcrafted and curated by me to fit exactly what I like to use during glam. I worked on every detail from the shape, length, and material of the bristles to the design and weight of the handles to everything in between. This collection is essentially me to the core.
