Materials & Components

A makeup brush consists of three main parts: BRISTLES, FERRULE and HANDLE.

BRISTLES AND WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF

The bristles of a makeup brush can be made from animal hair or synthetic hair (or a mix of the two).Click here to see the different hairs used in cosmetic brush making.

ANIMAL MAKEUP BRUSHES

Made of: Animal hair (sometimes referred to as NATURAL) comes from animals, including goats, badgers, squirrels, weasels (sable) and horses (pony).
Benefits: Natural hair contains a cuticle, a layered outer coating on the hair shaft, which picks up and distributes powder products well, creating a natural, non-blotchy look.
Best Uses: Natural brushes are best used for applying powder-based blushes and bronzers, and other makeup products
such as eye shadow, finishing and setting powder.

SYNTHETIC MAKEUP BRUSHES

Made of: Typically man-made materials like nylon, taklon or polyester fibers, including Taklon, Nylon, Natrafil®., etc..
Benefits: Synthetic bristles are very smooth, naturally gravitate toward each other, and trap less product in the bristles than animal hair brushes, this makes them great for creams, gels and liquids. Synthetic brushes are used for more precise, smooth and streak-free application.
As an exception, Taklon and Natrafil were created specifically to mimic the different properties of animal hair, making them good substitutes for using with powder cosmetics.
Best Uses: Synthetic makeup brushes are ideal for liquid products like foundations, cream blush or gel eyeliner. Because of the hairs' precise properties, they are great for angled, sharply cut brushes.

Makeup Brush Hair Types

Weasel hair is obtained from any member of the weasel family. Quality and characteristics of weasel hair vary greatly. It is generally considered to be the best material for it is usually used for eye shadow brush and lip brushes due to its strength, spring, absorbency and ability to retain its shape.

The finest soft brush hair is that obtained from the Kolinsky, an animal found in cold regions of Russia and China. Each Kolinsky hair has a fine point, and its overall structure ensures that the hairs cling closely together when wet. More specifically, the guard hairs from the tail of a male Kolinsky make the best brushes. These hairs, unsurpassed for spring and strength, are the standard by which all other soft hairs (synthetic or natural) are judged.

FERRULES AND WHAT THEY ARE MADE OF

This is the part that joins the brush handle to the brush hair by glue. Click here to see the different ferrule types used in cosmetic brush making.
The ferrule part of the brush is vital as it ensures that both the brush handle and brush hair stay together creating a long lasting quality brush. Ferrule is usually made of metals: brass, copper or aluminum. Click here to see the different ferrule types used in cosmetic brush making.

Ferrule`s heel is a part where the tube gets narrower, it presses and holds all the hair tightly together. A special glue is also used to secure hairs in the ferrule. A part where the ferrule connects with a handle calls crimp.
 
Copper and brass ferrules are usually chrome or nickel-plated, and aluminum ferrules are usually anodized in terms of surface finishes, for appearance and corrosion resistance. Copper and brass are times heavier and more expensive than aluminium ferrule. Meanwhile they are more shiny and wear resistant, lasting for a much longer time.
