Purchase Considerations for Makeup Brushes
Makeup is an art, and the better you know your tools, the better your makeups will turn out. Following are considerations you should make when you are in the market for makeup brushes.
– Synthetic vs Natural
Some brushes are made from real animal hair while others are made from synthetic materials. Although some people may swear by animal hair makeup brushes and cite its numerous advantages over synthetic brushes, other people may be more concerned by cost, hygiene, or in not lending a hand to animal cruelty.
– Number of Brushes
Buying your makeup brushes in a set can be much more cost effective than buying single brushes. Still the question remains: How many brushes should I look for in a set? While there is no single best answer to this question, you should look for a minimum of a powder, a foundation, an eyeshadow, a concealer, a blending and an eyeliner or blush brush.
A makeup set is an important accessory for many women. It should therefore be good looking and designed in a way that complements your lifestyle. Having brushes which fit your handbag, bathroom or even the way you dress, can go a long way in adding to your flair.
Of course the brushes should be well made and sturdy. You don’t want to have to buy a new brush every few weeks.
– Carrying Case Or Pouch
A carrying case or pouch for the brushes is important, but a brush set will get extra points for having a beautiful carrying case, because you can never have enough beauty in your life.
