Finding the perfect makeup brush is quite the task. You want it to be soft on your skin, withstand the test of time, apply your makeup with ease, and be cruelty free. It’s even harder to find one that meets your standards that is also cruelty free. For the longest time, vegan brushes were synonymous with hard synthetic bristles, but not anymore! There are also many benefits to choosing a synthetic brush over animal hair. First off, many people are allergic to animal hair. Synthetic bristles also shed less, are easier to clean, and also repel bacteria better than animal hair bristles.
