Houkodou recommends bristles of PBT, weasel and horse hair when it comes to smaller brushes such as eye and small highlights. For cheek brushes, they recommend brushes with densely bundled bristles. Kyureido recommends using PBT brushes for liquid, cream, and gel makeup.
What are high end makeup brushes made of?
Natural makeup brushes are made of animal hair (often sable, squirrel or goat) and, for this reason, tend to be more expensive than synthetic brushes. The real hair offers a super soft feel and makes blending a breeze.
What makes a quality makeup brush?
Quality brushes should feel soft and gentle against your skin. If a brush feels rough and scratchy, then it is of low quality and should not be used on your skin. If it's also a brush with bristles that fall out all the time, it is not of good quality.
Which makeup brushes are best natural or synthetic?
The durability of natural brushes is far better than that of synthetic ones. If you are looking for a long-term investment, natural brushes should be your go-to. Since they are made of natural fur, these brushes are softer and fluffier. It also helps blend the product into the skin with minimum efforts.
