What material is good for makeup brushes？
Press the brush lightly on the back of your hand and draw a semicircle to see if the hair is cut neatly. Hold the bristles with your fingers, and gently tie down the comb to see if the brush is easy to shed. Use hot air to blow the bristles. The animal hair remains undisturbed, and the man-made fiber becomes the curled hair. Man-made fibers are cheap and naturally not easy to use, so animal hair is still recommended. Generally divided into three types: pony hair, goat hair and mink hair. The first two are moderately priced and are suitable for larger rouge brushes, powder brushes, etc. Mink hair is naturally the best, but it is also the most expensive, like a brush. For the best Shu Uemura, the most expensive mink brush costs one to two thousand dollars. The general mink brush is recommended to use a lip brush and an eye shadow brush.
Natural hair has complete hair scales, so the hair is softer and has a strong powder grip, which can make makeup more conformable and will not irritate the skin. Mink and yellow wolf hair in natural hair are the best, soft and moderate in texture, and the price is low; goat hair is relatively ordinary hair quality; horse hair is softer, but horse hair is slightly less elastic ; Squirrel hair is the highest quality hair quality, the price will be very expensive, but it is also what you pay for.
Artificial hair has a harder texture and is suitable for thick cream makeup, but the price will be much lower. Artificial hair is more used for foundation brushes; nylon has the hardest texture and is mostly used as eyelash brushes, eyebrow brushes, etc. Good natural bristles are soft and smooth, the structure is firm and full, and the bristles are not easy to fall off. A good brush should have a natural arc at the end of the hair peak.
