INTRODUCING RAE MORRIS
The First Magnetic Brush Range in the World!
Renowned as one of the most influential Makeup Artists in the world, Rae Morris is not only a number one
best-selling author but also four times Australian Makeup Artist of the Year, the longest serving
Makeup Director for L’Oreal Paris (2003-2013) and has been inducted into multiple Halls of Fame.
Collaborating with some of the world’s leading photographers, Rae regularly works on editorial covers,
and fashion and beauty features for magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and I.D. Magazine.
In 2008 Rae’s first book, Makeup: The Ultimate Guide was an overwhelming worldwide success –
since then she has published another 4 books culminating in the 2016 release of her 6th book,
Rae Morris Makeup Masterclass. These instructional books are currently used as training manuals
in top makeup schools around the world.
Rae is also the designer behind her namesake Rae Morris Magnetic Brush Range – the first magnetic
makeup brush range in the world – which has been acclaimed as not only the most innovative,
but one of the best makeup brush ranges in the world.
“I fell into makeup… well not literally, although I have done that too! I was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia, and actually started out as a hairdresser, running my own salon at 19 years of age, and it was through that profession that I found myself at the ‘Model of the World’ pageant in Istanbul in 1993.
I was attending to a model’s hair whilst on the other side of the room, Naomi Campbell (one of the judges), was having her makeup done. Suddenly, there was a flurry of angry voices and her makeup artist headed for the door… in the stunned silence that followed, Naomi glared around the room and as fate would have it her gaze fell on me. ‘Fix my lips’ she said. I looked at her mouth, then at the lip gloss on the bench and with a wave of unwarranted confidence thought ‘how hard can it be?!’
I picked up the lip gloss and got to work, and as I did the door burst open and whole room erupted in a blaze of flashlights… the paparazzi had arrived. Next thing I knew, my picture was plastered all over the tabloids and my makeup career had officially begun. Since then a LOT has happened… I returned to Australia and was fortunate enough to be trained by the legendary makeup artist Richard Sharah… with his encouragement I packed my bags and moved to Sydney and since then I have had the privilege of travelling the world and working with some of the biggest names not only in fashion but on the planet!
Even after all this time, I am still so passionate about makeup.. not just the product and the art but what it can do for your confidence and in turn how your confidence can literally change your life. My goal is to bring you completely into my world, for you to see the potential in you that I as a professional makeup artist do, and in doing so change not just the way you look, but also the way you feel everyday.”
THE BRUSHES - THE ‘JISHAKU’ RANGE
“Rae Morris has crafted brushes that are an artists dream. Every hair is suited in the perfect shape and density for the most flawlessly blended makeup application. Her unique magnetic drying system is the future of brushes. You can tell an artist created these brushes because they are absolutely perfect.” - Sarah Tanno (Makeup Artist to Lady Gaga)
For Rae, makeup is all about brushes. You can do more with minimal product and an incredible brush range than you can with cotton buds and drawers full of makeup. Over time she became more passionate about brushes, and tested different designs and textures and in the process, and almost without realising it, came up with her own range of brushes.
The culmination of this process was the Rae Morris™ Magnetic Range – everything Rae knew then about brushes encapsulated in one range. With the ‘Jishaku’ (magnet in Japanese) range she has now refined every brush design, lightened the handles, optimised the ‘world first’ magnetic functionality (patent pending) and then found the best brush makers in the world, in Japan, to make them – these, Rae believes, are THE best brushes in the world.
“I made a personal pilgrimage to Japan to find the best brush makers to make these brush designs happen – after an extensive search, I found a company in a region with over 180 years of brush making tradition that had never made a brush for any other brand – their first project, Rae Morris.”
“The Jishaku range takes traditional Japanese brush making techniques and applies them to my modern designs to create the ultimate makeup brush range. Designed for efficiency and precision, the Jishaku range incorporates my 25+ years of experience as a professional makeup artist to create tools that, even in the hands of a novice, can transform makeup application.”
The Jishaku brushes can stand securely upright on any surface a magnet will hold to (including the custom designed magnetic stands) – this takes up less space, makes the brushes extremely easy to organise and find, and is the ultimate in hygiene because the heads don’t have to be in contact with anything but your face. Plus, you can secure the brushes upside down for drying after cleaning!
THE BRUSH THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE
“I am particularly proud of my signature brush, the Radiance… this brush has literally changed my life. I used to air brush quite a bit, but the Radiance has changed all that. Whether it’s powder, liquid, cream or mineral foundation, this is the only brush I reach for.”
