If you use makeup brushes with hard bristles to apply makeup, then they may cause damage to your skin. It is important to use soft makeup brushes for makeup application. These makeup brushes smoothly glide makeup over the skin without irritating it.
Soft makeup brushes are made from ultra-soft bristles that are ideal for soft smooth application of any makeup product. These makeup brushes can be made from natural or synthetic bristles. Natural bristles made from goat or squirrel hair are very soft and help in applying makeup without aggravating the skin. The animal hair used for making makeup brushes are cleaned and processed so that they don’t irritate your skin. The synthetic brushes generally have taklon or nylon fiber that is soft on your skin.
