Compassionate beauty consumers everywhere should rejoice! If you think wearing fur is archaic and gross, you should definitely extend that sentiment to your beauty regimen. Not only are fur makeup brushes unethical but they also harbor bacteria which can cause breakouts.
Fortunately, there are companies like DermaQuest that manufacture naturally antimicrobial, vegan, environmentally friendly makeup brushes that aren’t made out of some poor animal’s bushy tail.
DermaQuest’s DermaBrush collection was created by a panel of top makeup artists and it’s quite obvious because these brushes are high quality, super soft, and non-shedding. They’re perfect!
I am in love with their Kabuki Brush ($42). It works perfectly with my mineral foundation and makes for a flawless application – and it really is magically soft.
I’m also totally digging their Dual Define Eye Brush ($24) which is double sided so you can apply your eyeshadow and liner with a single brush. The fewer brushes I have to tote means less chaos in my makeup bag. Who isn’t down with that?
These brushes actually accompany DermaMinerals Makeup so play around with their mineral makeup line and have fun. All of their makeup isn’t vegan so please check out their ingredients on their website. I know their lip treatments contain beeswax but their powders look like they’re good to go.
I especially like their On-the-go Finishing Powder with SPF 30 and built-in brush ($62). As much as I love sporting a healthy glow, I’m pretty much anti-shine, especially in the notorious T-zone. I keep this in my purse at all times to help keep my shine at bay. This finishing powder contains honeysuckle extract, natural mineral sunscreen and it’s free of parabens, talc, synthetic dye, bismuth oxychloride and oil.
