Types of Bristles

Makeup brush bristles come in two types: natural hair and synthetic.

Bristle types

Natural Hair Bristles

Natural hair bristles are sourced from animals — commonly goats and horses. We encourage consumers to look for companies that are environmentally friendly and obtain the hairs in a cruelty-free manner.

The perks of natural hair brushes include the following:

  • They’re softer on the skin.

  • They absorb oil from the skin.

  • They contain a cuticle that’s perfect for picking up powder products.

  • They distribute pigment evenly across the face.

  • They blend makeup smoothly on the skin.

Synthetic Bristles

Synthetic bristles are made of microfiber materials like nylon and polyester.

  • The bristles hold tightly together to help create a sharp, clean, streak-free line in one swipe.

  • Their lack of a cuticle means they don’t soak up and waste liquid and cream products.

  • They are perfect for basic eyeshadow brushes.

  • They make great foundation and concealer brushes.
