How to choose the best and most suitable makeup brushes? Here are the criteria you need to consider when buying makeup brushes.
1. Choose a smooth, soft, non-shedding brush head
The skin on the face is quite thin and very sensitive, especially the eye area. So choose a soft, smooth brush so as not to hurt your skin. In addition, a soft brush will also help get the chalk and spread the chalk easier.
When choosing a brush, you can test the brush by gently flicking your brush. If you see brush hair falling off, it is not a quality brush. It would be uncomfortable if the makeup is brushed on the face, right?

Naturally, bristles will smell a little. This is okay. But if the artificial fur has an odor, it should not be chosen, especially the smell of chemicals because it can cause irritation.

4. Choose a solid brush body
A brush with a body will definitely help you can easily control the brush you want. In addition, you can also use a palm tree with a longer lifespan. You should choose the brush body made of metal or high-grade plastic is the best fit.

All brushes are made of high quality plastic. The part between the brush head and handle is made of aluminum. It looks quite luxurious, but if it is accidentally hit, it is easy to be distorted, not as beautiful as the original.
Perhaps to avoid this situation, the manufacturer has designed an extra high-end leather bag to hold the palm. This leather bag both helps to protect the brush and makes it easier to carry the entire brush set.
The brush is straight, soft to the touch and easy to use. However, the life expectancy of this set is not very high. I used a few times, after cleaning like any other brush set, I saw the brush hairs started to break off.
