Have you ever wondered what your make-up brush was made of? Most of us don't really bother to see what kind of brush we use. Neither did I, until I read an article from Take Part, which was a PETA article, "Is there a Squirrel in our Make-Up Bag". I know as an art teacher that many of the bristles used for paint brushes are from animal hair, so that would be easily found in our make-up brushes.
If you're like me and would rather not wear or use animal products, PETA has created a list of companies that do not use animal hair on their products. I have tried Eco Tools which was featured in the Kind Life, a website by Alicia Silverstone. The line doesn't use any animal products, is sustainable, and is fair trade. It is reasonably priced at $8.00 - $15.00 depending on the brush or set you buy. The best part is that I have noticed that the bristles are smoother and less irritating to my sensitive skin and the make-up feels more natural to my face. Give it a try and see the difference!
If you're interested, here are some companies:
