What are makeup brushes made of ?Which are best??
So i am sure all of know having good makeup brushes can make all the difference in how your makeup looks and the ease of applying it.But have you ever thought what are they made of and how are they made ,or which works best,natural or synthetic?
Well let me explain first what natural brushes are made of and how.
Most brushes labeled 'Natural" are made of different types of animal hair like Sable,pony,goat and even badger and squirrel!!! The pro of getting a brush like this is it will last literally forever,but it will cost you and harm to the animals.
The process of getting the hairs for sable comes from the fur industry which kills millions of them just for people to wear them,i am not a fan of this practice.And to get the goat hair goats are shorn like sheep. Workers are often paid by volume, so they shear the goats quickly, which can result in serious injuries.
Here is the foundation brush for only $23.00.i find that synthetic brushes actually work much better with liquid makeup and go on much smoother .
Another great option to try out that you can get at Zellers or Walmart is Eco Tools-
This earth-friendly brush set is packed with the 5 high-quality brushes you need to look beautiful. And, it shows respect for the planet:
• Bamboo handle has a low impact on the earth’s resources as it is a highly sustainable plant.
• Synthetic taklon bristles are 100% cruelty free.
• Sleek ferrule is made from recycled aluminum.
• Cosmetic case is made from natural cotton and hemp.
Will you make the change over to brushes that do not harm animals???
