The whole Kardashian/Jenner clan is known for their celebrity-sized drama and questionable social media posts…but let’s not forget that they’ve also been leading and popularizing emerging beauty trends for years.
When the Kardashians work with a makeup artist, you know he or she is at the top of their game. So it speaks volumes to Ariel Tejada’s (@makeupbyariel) credibility that he is trusted not only by the reality star sisters but also other celebrities like Shay Mitchell and Rosalía.
With more than 2.4 million Instagram followers, Ariel is known for his flawless cut creases, perfectly sculpted brows, and unmatched face shaping. And it’s only natural that he would collaborate with makeup giant Morphe to create his own line of brushes: Morphe x Ariel.
This collaboration includes two sets: the Signature Eyes 8-Piece Eye Brush Set ($48, shop here) and the Signature Look 12-Piece Face & Eye Set Brush Set ($98, shop here*). Ariel’s favorite is the A22 blush brush, essential for highlighting the cheeks.
Ariel says he loves the ’90s soft glam trend, and his brush set is perfect for those smoky eyes and matted skin looks. Another trend he loves is bold graphic liner; use the A16 brush to achieve this look.
Expert Tip: Ariel says holding the brushes near their bristles applies more pressure and adds more product (great for building color). Conversely, holding brushes toward the end of the handle allows for more control in application, which is best for brows and cut creases.
If you need a flawless face or just love to play with the latest makeup trends, make sure to invest in these brushes – worthy of even the Kardashian beauty queens!
