  1. What are the best makeup brushes made of?

    A good makeup brush can truly change the game. Generally speaking, there are two types of makeup brushes — natural and synthetic. Each have their pros and cons so ultimately, it’s a matter of personal preference.

    Natural brushes are made from animal furs or hairs. They hold onto product really well, so are super effective at applying powder products. While they’re soft and fluffy, which allow for seamless blending, there’s the concern of animal welfare — you might not actually know how the hair is collected and how the animals are treated.

    If you want your makeup tools to be cruelty-free and vegan, go for synthetic brushes. They’re typically made from nylon or other vegan fibres, tend to shed less and are just as durable as natural brushes. When it comes to liquid and cream formulas, synthetic brushes perform especially well, making seamless makeup application easy.
