How These Luxury Vegan Makeup Brushes Can Amp Up Your Beauty and Skincare Routine

Artis makeup brushes are known for a few things: They have a unique, Instagram-able design; they are loved by celebrities (including Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Oprah, who called them the "Rolls-Royce of makeup applicators" on her 2018 list of favorite things); and the brand made headlines for selling a $25,000 bespoke makeup brush (in addition to Artis' somewhat-fairly-priced everyday makeup brushes). But a lesser-known fact about the luxury makeup brush company is that the brushes are all vegan and animal-free. Green Matters recently chatted with Lindsey Jackson, Artistry & Training Lead for Artis, to learn about why Artis brushes are a better choice for the animals, the environment, your skin, and your wallet.

Instead of using animal hair for bristles, Artis brushes are made with a proprietary synthetic fiber called CosmeFibre. Yes, synthetic means the fibers are made of plastic — not the perfect eco-friendly option. Unfortunately, synthetic fibers are the best animal-free option in the industry right now, and that's what pretty much all animal-free makeup brushes are made of (though some companies do use recycled plastic). That said, when comparing the Artis brush to animal hair brushes and non-certified synthetic brushes, Artis actually has less of an ecological footprint than you might think. And, as a bonus, the handles on the brand's Elite Collection are made from metal with a rubber grip pad, which is a step up from the typical plastic handle.
