Let's first talk about the hair quality classification of makeup brushes and the difference between the hair of each material.
At present, the most common hair quality on the market is basically fiber hair and real hair. Of course, there are many subdivided materials. In order to facilitate your intuitive understanding and experience, I summarized a table based on the characteristics of hair quality.
The first is fiber wool. The main feature is that the wool is softer and has weak gripping power. Because it is made of fiber, you don't pay attention to the cleaning method. You can wash it any way you want.
Real hair is relatively delicate. If you buy a good set of real hair brushes, you still have to take good care of it.
Pay attention to the cleaning and use methods. It is not a problem to use them for three to five years. I bought a set of Zhubaotang brushes 10 years ago, and I still use them. After washing them, they are no different from new ones.
Under normal circumstances, it is recommended that novice friends with a budget start with wool brushes for three main reasons:
High performance-price ratio, the price of a set of about 8 wool brushes is about 400 yuan, and it can be used for 3-5 years. In fact, it is cheaper than cheap fiber brushes.
Moderately soft and hard, it can smudge a natural makeup effect, and has lower requirements on the technique.
Most bloggers and makeup teaching content use wool brushes. Using brushes of the same material can better learn their makeup techniques.
