35+Vegan Makeup Brushes

Vegan makeup brushes are made of Synthetic. Which means a vegan brush is typically made of Taklon fibers or nylon, and are also hypoallergenic. Vegan brushes can hold powders better and are easier to clean and maintain than non-vegan brushes. The non-cruelty free companies make non-vegan brushes out of animal hair. If you want to start using vegan brushes instead, here are a 35+ options. They are better quality and can be affordable!

EcoTools is my personal favorite. Their packaging is made of 20% cotton and 80% bamboo fibers. Their products are made of recycled aluminum and plastic. Even more, their handles on the products are made of recycled bamboo! They not only have makeup brushes, but they also have hair brushes, makeup sponges, and some bath & spa essentials you definitely need for those quiet and cleansing bath nights.








                                                         Real Techniques

Real Techniques was created by two sisters who had a love for makeup. They knew that you needed to have the best tools to apply your makeup. Coming in all sorts of different colors and sizes, they made these synthetic brushes for your every need. They also have cute organizers and sponges!






                                                       Sigma Beauty

This brand is definitely more on the expensive side but they make great tools for all your beauty needs. Built to last, SigmaTech fibers are antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and will maintain their original shape and color even after multiple washes. They also have makeup products.










                                                   Wet n Wild

Where do I begin with Wet N Wild?! When I first started wearing makeup in the 8th grade, this is the brand I started with. At that time I had no idea there was such a thing as cruelty-free and non-cruelty free. Looking back, I’m so glad I chose to wear their products first. Not only are they affordable, but they have a variety of different colors and shades for any skin tone. Their makeup brushes are also affordable, smooth, and easy to use!








E.L.F is my most favorite cruelty-free, vegan, and affordable brand. You can’t go wrong with using their products. This picture to the left, you can get all of those for just $12! They create the best products without you having to leave your wallet crying. Seriously, I know it may sound funny and maybe unbelievable but you know what I’m talking about if you already use e.l.f yourself.








                                                          The Body Shop

L.A. Girl

Their brushes are also vegan. You should definitely try their products if you haven’t yet. I’m really wanting to try their Angled Liner Brush. It’s so tiny and unique looking. I bet it’s a lot easier to use when applying eyeliner when you don’t have a steady hand.
