What are the makeup brush bristles?
Makeup brushes should be more common makeup tools for women. Having a set of makeup brushes suitable for you can make you do more with less. But for many female friends, what are the types of makeup brush bristles? It may not be clear.
Here are the types and characteristics of makeup brush bristles:
Generally speaking, the bristles of makeup brushes are divided into animal hair and artificial hair. Animal hair is more expensive than artificial hair, but it does not mean that animal hair is better than artificial hair. Animal hair and artificial hair have their own advantages and disadvantages.
For example, when applying wet powder or cream cosmetics, it is best to use artificial wool fiber hair. This wet powder uses animal hair, it is easy to break, so for this kind of cosmetics, it is best to use fiber hair.
There are also many types of animal hair, and there are some differences in different animal hairs. The most common ones on the market are wool, horse hair, squirrel hair, and yellow wolf tail hair.
Horse hair is about as soft as a yellow wolf tail, but not as flexible as a yellow wolf tail. Horse hair color is brown, yellow wolf tail hair is yellow.
Wool is a relatively common makeup bristle. It has a soft and durable texture, strong powder catching ability, and good makeup effect. Wool can be used for loose powder brushes, blusher brushes, trimming brushes and eye shadow brushes.
Squirrel hair is the softest and smoothest of animal hair, and the hair quality is very comfortable, but the powder catching ability is not as good as wool, and it is not elastic. It is generally used as a blush brush and a trimming brush.
Yellow wolf tail hair is the most expensive animal hair. However, it is soft and elastic, very durable, and has good effects in color and oil resistance. Can be used as loose powder brush, trimming brush, lip brush, eyeliner brush, concealer brush, etc. However, due to the high price, small brushes such as lip brushes, eyeliner brushes and concealer brushes are generally used
