Step 1: Choose the brush material When choosing your makeup brushes, it's important to factor in the material the brushes are made of. The makeup formulas you use will help you determine whether to choose natural, real hair (i.e. sable or pony fibers) or synthetic, fake hair usually made of acrylic or plastic.
Natural brushes are better for dry products like blush and eyeshadow and synthetic brushes are best suited for cream or liquid products like concealer or foundation because they soak up less product than natural hair, says Dean.
