Knowledge of cosmetic brushes
The softer the brush, the better?

Ordinary cosmetic brushes are divided into eight categories. There are 34 brush types (of course, there are also some fishes that leak out of the net). But change is inseparable, no matter what brand, material brush, its brush type is inseparable from the basic classification of the front. Common cosmetic brushes are mostly composed of brush bristles, brush tubes and brush rods.
Generally speaking, when looking at the material of the brush, people will focus on the brush, because it is directly in contact with our skin, and the general view is that the better the softness of the brush, the better the brush.
At present, the brush hair of cosmetic brushes on the market can be roughly divided into animal hair and artificial hair. Artificial wool (also known as nylon or fibrous wool) has two kinds of hair peaks: sharpening fibers and non-sharpening fibers. And because the texture of artificial wool is relatively hard, and it can avoid moldy condition of animal hair, it is used for making foundation brush and low end brush.
Animal hair (also known as natural hair) is divided into several types. The most common is goat hair (generally because the raw material is easy to get). The brush made of goat wool has soft texture and good elasticity, and the goat wool itself has high, medium and low grade, which can meet the requirements of different people on the material of cosmetic brush. But real goat hair makeup brushes emit a faint smell of sheep when wet, so friends who care should be careful to buy them.
Common animal hair also includes horse hair, mink hair, yellow tail wolf hair and so on. Horse hair is soft, especially when washed in water. It belongs to high-grade hair. Of course, the price of makeup brushes made from washed horse hair is also high-grade.

Make-up brushes made of mink hair and yellow tail wolf hair are luxuries in the field of cosmetic brushing. Especially nowadays, the fur of these animals is becoming more and more difficult to obtain. They are usually used only when making small-sized paints.
