Gallery: 7 Eco-Friendly (And Vegan!) Makeup Brushes for Cruelty-Free Primp...

Pretty is as pretty does. You'd rather go naked than wear fur, so why subject your punim to makeup brushes that are part squirrel, mink, or horse? These seven cruelty-free primping tools don't just require zero hunting or trapping, they're also pretty groovy for the planet. Plus, synthetic bristles aren't chockfull of dead skin, bacteria, and janky preservatives, which means happier, healthier skin. Above, a bundle of Aveda's Flax Sticks ($65), featuring soft bristles made with 100 percent non-animal Taklon and handles derived from flax and post-consumer recycled polypropylene.

    Are these actually labeled as Vegan? What do the companies use as adhesive? Most glues/adhesives use products derived from animals. And what about the production process? How eco friendly and vegan is the manufacturing? The majority of makeup brushes available are synthetic fibers and plastic or wood handles which would be considered vegan.

    As a professional make up artist, I have used Aveda brushes for 20 years. Some of them have lasted that long, just shampoo and let air dry. Love them and would love to try some of these other eco brands.
