What does one need to look for in brushes? Sets? individuals? How do you judge quality?

Are there even readily accessible vegan make-up brushes? Who makes them? Where are they? Is there a set?

Do you all have favourites?

<--- truly clueless.

I like the EcoTools brushes I have a lot. I also have some super old Origins synthetic brushes that have held up amazingly well. Urban Decay and MAC also have some vegan brushes (you can see the UD ones on their vegan page and the MAC ones are listed on Melisser's site).

I am not a fan of the UD brushes - to stiff for me. My fave brushes come from Eco Tools and ELF's studio line. Most of the brushes from these lines are under $10.

I also am a fan of Eco Tools. You can find them at Target and Whole Foods, sold in sets or individually!

What everyone else has said for brands. I've got Ecotools, UD, and Elf. My most used ones are a regular shadow brush - I have a stiff and fluffy one and they're both good for different things, a blending brush, and a powder brush. I've also got a foundation one, but I use my fingers more. I know some people that have 30+ brushes but I really don't think that's necessary. I could get by with just 2, probs. I like my extra so I don't have to clean them as often, though.

all of my brushes (except one) are either aveda or origins--both make only synthetic brushes, as i understand it. the exception is my kabuki brush, because (at least when i was trying to buy one, not sure about currently) aveda/origins didn't make one. i can't remember where i got mine, but i could trace it backwards and figure it out if anyone is really dying to know. anyhow, i really like all of the ones i have.

i've tried a couple of other brands, but i always come back to the origins/aveda brushes.

I have too many brushes already but just ordered these from Coastal Scents:

http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore ... -brush.cfm
http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore ... -brush.cfm
http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore ... kabuki.cfm

I'm expecting great things...they're supposed to be dupes of the more expensive Adesign synthetic brushes

I have brushes from Aveda, The Body Shop and Everyday Minerals. I like the Aveda one best, but the others do well.

The Ecotools brushes are great. I have the eyeshadow brush set, the retractable kabuki, blush brush, bronzer brush, and concealer brush and they're all super soft and awesome.

Did you find your retractable brush a bit of poorer quality? The hairs in my brush shed...All the other brushes are great though!

I love my ELF brushes! Amazing quality for the price. I gave all my old non synthetic old brushes to a friend, so at least someones is still using them and I don't have to be weirded out by using animal hairs. What do you all use to clean yours? I just use some dish soap. Bad?

I haven't! I've been using mine every day for about 3 or 4 months and haven't had a single hair fall out.

I also have some Eco Tools brushes and a super old Body Shop one that I should probably replace.

I never thought of using Bronner's!

I've only used Eco Tools, mostly because they're cheap, and also because they work well for me.

The Eco Tools blush brush is so soft, it feels like little kitten kisses.

This is probably a dumb question but what are the different brushes used for?

I have different eyeshadow brushes that are for lid color, crease, highlight, eyeliner, etc. The main difference is just the shape and size. I use the kabuki for putting on powder but it's also good for mineral makeup. Powder brushes serve the same purpose but are less dense and give more of a dusting/lighter coverage. The bronzer brush is huge and fluffy and great for putting on stuff where you don't want hard edges.

You can youtube brush videos and some 15 year old girl with 90 MAC brushes will be able to tell you which little crevice of your face that specific brush is designed for.

They're for different parts of the eye and to do different things. Like if you want to line your eye, you don't want to use a big fluffy brush, and if you want allover color, you don't want to do it with a small liner brush. Also, I like having a lot of brushes because I rarely remember to clean them and if I have gray eyeshadow on one, I can't use it to quickly put light pink on.

I have a bunch of ecotools, I bought two separate sets, one was just eye brushes and one also had concealer brushes and stuff. I think the set of eyeshadow brushes was $7? I need a smudger/liner brush still, though.

I bought a foundation brush from ELF and it came unglued from the handle, but I still like using it more than a sponge.

I have mostly Aveda brushes. They are spendy (I got them with my staff discount when I worked there), but I've had them forever and they are really well made. No shedding hairs or anything. For eyes, I get by with two eyeshadow brushes - one sort of fluffy one for blending, one flat, square one for applying.

For face, I use my fingers to apply my foundation (over cleansed, primed skin) then follow up with powder on a kabuki brush, and a fluffy, angled brush for blush.

I also use a small angled brush for applying brow colour. A lot of makeup artists will tell you what brushes you MUST HAVE to properly do a look, but I think it's really about what tools you are most comfortable using.

I also use Origins and find that even though they are ridiculously expensive- they last forever.
