Before order the brushes, most customer usually ask if the brush is natural hair, whether it is very soft.
It is not entirely correct to judge whether the brush is good or not by the softness of the bristles.
Look at the material first: to judge whether the make-up brush is good or bad, the most important is the material of the bristles.
The bristles of professional make-up brushes are generally divided into two categories: natural hair, fiber synthetic hair (mainly nylon hair):
But some makeup brushes need a certain hardness to achieve a better makeup effect, which will be mixed with natural hair and artificial hair.
Whether the bristles are soft or not is inconclusive, and everyone’s skin feels different.
Therefore, choose which brush to consider from the desired makeup effect, but also according to your skin sensitivity.
The quality of the brush should be from the hair front of the bristles, the elasticity of the hair, whether it is shed, the color of the hair, the shape of the hair, the appearance of the material of the mouth tube, the color of the plating, the appearance of the material of the handle, the joint of the handle and the mouth tube. Whether the hand feels scratched, product LOGO printing effect and other aspects of comprehensive evaluation.
Common material comparison:
The price of hair (not equal to the cost of a brush) does not indicate the quality of its hair.
The main factors affecting the price are as follows: the brand, the material of each part of the brush, the processing requirements and product quality standards, the function of the product, the size of the product, the quantity of each batch, the packages.
It is recommended to use according to their respective traits and strengths, combined with the purpose of makeup.
Let me tell you the most difficult to distinguish in the material is the mixed hair; for example, the manufacturer uses the real sable hair and the fake sable hair to mix hair. Both the pure sable hair and the fake sable hair have little difference in the shape of the hair, the color, the shape of the hair, and the softness. After the two kinds of hair are evenly mixed, the hair part process is finished, and then make a brush shape. It is not easy to identify even the professional production of brush engineers.
The identification method is to unplug the hair to see if the hair inside is uniform in the following aspects: color, hair shape, softness, and gloss. Because it is combed with combs during production, the uniformity of the same kind of good hair and poor hair cannot be achieved, and there is a small blocky uneven hair unevenness. This uneven reality is a relatively uniform and regular block color. There are subtle differences in the shape, softness, and luster of the hair. Mane: It is the best of the best in the bristles. The texture is soft and moderate. It is generally used on lip brush, eyeliner brush, and eye shadow brush. In facts, there are very few cosmetic brushes on the market, because the price of the mane is hundreds of times the price of ordinary hair.
How to know the hair? Look, smell, touch, through the three major techniques to know the real gold.
How to distinguish between animal hair and fiber synthetic hair?
Firstly, from the appearance of dialectic: high-grade fiber synthetic hair is relatively hard except for the front of the hair, the impression is very smooth, the nylon hair is bent 60 degrees and then loosened, and it is effortless to restore the original shape.
Secondly, dialectical from the length tolerance: if there are ten batches of the same product, as long as the hair is aligned with the mouth tube, the hair loss of the outer leakage is stable and unstable, and the hair of the different fronts of the product is known. The hair length instability of fiber synthesis is much larger than that of animal hair. Because the nylon hair is very smooth, when the PVC sheet is drawn into the hair-shaped inlet tube during production, the nylon hair is driven to make the hair length unstable. It can be identified from the tolerance of the machining.
Thirdly: burn with fire. Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran of makeup, you can successfully separate animal hair and synthetic fiber hair.
Take only one hair from the brush and put it on the fire for a second. At this point, it is distinguished by the following characteristics:
Animal hair characteristics:
Look: easy to burn, have a flame.
Smell: After the fire, there is the same smell as a human hair.
Touch: Burn the ash and crush it with your fingers.
Synthetic fiber characteristics:
Look: it is difficult to burn, and no flame, but will melt into a group.
Smell: It is only crystallized after melting, it is not burned, there is no smell, and after burning for a long time, it is the smell of plastic.
Touch: If it is just recrystallization, it will be very hard when touching with a finger. If the burning melts into the ground automatically, the burnt part will not be ash.
