Best Eco-Friendly and Vegan Makeup Brushes

As an eco-friendly makeup artist, I have searched far and wide for the best eco-friendly brushes.  Many of them have received rave reviews from my clients, especially my EcoTools brushes.

EcoTools brushes are my personal favorite.  They are inexpensive ($4-$16) and available at many local drugstores and superstores.  EcoTools brushes are environmentally-friendly and vegan, made of cruelty-free taklon (synthetic) hairs, bamboo, and recycled aluminum.

 EcoTools are made well and will last for years if cleaned regularly.  The main disadvantage to this line is the limited selection; many of the best eyeshadow brushes are only available in travel sizes .

Other Options
If you are a professional, passionate about makeup, or willing to spend a little more on your brushes, you might want to consider these eco-friendly and vegan brushes:
  • Alima Pure Brushes - Made of taklon hairs and natural wood, these brushes are another great eco-friendly option.  Prices are a little bit higher, ranging from $12-$29.
If you find the eco-friendly brush lines listed above don’t have the selection you need, you might want to consider these vegan brushes:
  • Too Faced Brushes - Synthetic “teddy bear” hair and pink handles make these a fun option.  Brushes are $12.50-$65.
  •  Urban Decay Brushes - All of this popular makeup line’s brushes are vegan, though the specific materials used are not listed.  Prices range from about $16-$39 per brush.
  • Branded J Brushes - Cruelty-free brushes made from taklon hairs with acrylic handles.  Developed by a celebrity makeup artist, these brushes are available individually ($15-$56) or in sets ($91-$395).
