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)
To me, 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 I became more passionate about brushes than anything else in my kit – over years I tested different designs and textures and in the process, almost without realising it, I came up with my own range of brushes. My brushes are the secret behind many of my most famous creations.
The culmination of this process was the Rae Morris™ Magnetic Range – everything I knew then about brushes encapsulated in one range. With the ‘Jishaku’ (magnet in Japanese) range I have now refined every brush design, lightened the handles, optimised my ‘world first’ magnetic functionality (patent pending) and I then found the best brush makers in the world, in Japan, to make them for me – these, I believe, 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.
These brushes are so light, you can actually feel the skin as you use the brush!
The Jishaku range features my world first magnetic functionality (patent pending), redesigned to blend seamlessly with the new streamlined look. The Jishaku brushes can stand securely upright on any surface a magnet will hold to (including my 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!
This is the project of which I am most proud. I’ve been using makeup brushes as a professional makeup artist for more than 25 years, and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that this is in my opinion the best brush range in the world. Jishaku combines the efficiency and precision of modern design with the ancient tradition of Japanese brush making – the perfect combination for any artist.
I personally designed and extensively tested every brush, and my team oversees all stages of production, quality control, logistics and customer service… right down to the email enquiries we receive every day.
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.
You may have gathered I love my brushes… I simply couldn’t do makeup without them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
