Top 5 cruelty-free makeup brushes that you should buy
Makeup initially was meant only for the famous or the vain, but with the influence social media, a lot of people have been following makeup artist and have been following their example and buying products. Cruelty-free is a tag that the industry puts on its products to signify that no animals were harmed in the making of their products.
Initially, products were tested on animals to ensure that it is not harmful to humans who will ultimately purchase their product. Lady Dowding first used the term to persuade manufacturers of fur to avoid killing animals and also promoted the use of synthetic fibres for making fur products. Beauty without cruelty was a charity that was formed to fight against animal cruelty that was widely practised in the industry.
Social Media has become a part of our daily lives as we look at the latest trends and follow them religiously to be more desirable to society. Beauty trends are one of the biggest trends as influencers such as Kylie Jenner have been promoting her beauty products and setting trends such as smoky eyes, colour highlights, hair extensions, lip fillers etc. Having the right tools helps you get the right look and style that you desire.
The sponge applicator movement made us push our makeup brushes aside, but a good beauty blender is essential for creating the ideal contouring and buffing, along with the perfect blurred lip effect. Many makeup professionals have stated that having a makeup brush kit is always important to the process. The quality of a brush is decided by factors such as – the quality of brush hair, handmade or machine-made, how tightly they are bound together etc.
