Some people prefer synthetic makeup brushes. Some want natural makeup brushes. But, what is really the deal with these two? They are just brushes for your beautification purposes, right? So is there a major difference if you choose one over the other? Which is better?
Well, you can buy a natural makeup brush set and a synthetic collection too because these two sets can offer benefits for the user. There are advantages in a one set that is not present with the other. To distinguish, here are some observed facts on synthetic makeup brushes and natural ones:
If your favor Au Naturel… makeup brushes manufacturer
Brushes made from natural hair usually come from animals like squirrel, goat, sable, horses, minks or a combination of all. Since it is made of real hair, the bristles are not as soft as man-made. Goat hair is often the preferred choice.
The bristles are of high quality so as expected, if you buy a set of this, it will be a bit costly. If you do not mind the tag price and want to have the finest benefit it has to offer then by all means, purchase a whole collection. Remember that these tools may cost up to $50 each brush. (Synthetic makeup brushes are lesser in price – ranges from $1-$30).
The issue here is usage and animal cruelty. With natural bristles, application of powdered make up is superb and unmatched by the man-made ones. The look on the face will be “softer”. This is because the brush can hold and apply the makeup color pigments better.
If you are against animal testing or cruelty, this is not the set for you. Do not believe in marketing campaigns that say “natural hair bristles, cruelty free”. This is false advertising.

If you favor synthetic makeup brushes…
It is usually made of nylon or polyester fibers but with further processing. These brushes are being baked and dyed to make it strong against damage. It is easy to clean because man-made makeup tools do not absorb color pigments as much as the natural hair does. It can be easily washed off by water just like painting brushes. (Actually, they are closely the same.)
