Guest Post: Eco-Friendly Makeup Brushes

Guest post by Kaylin Johnson of Kaylin’s Kit.

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.

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

●Favorite EcoTools brushes:

Retractable Kabuki ($8) and Angled Eye Liner ($4)

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.

Special thanks for Kaylin for this post!
