While natural brushes tend to produce better results, there most certainly exist good synthetic brushes that will aid you just as well.
But be careful not to buy the kind of brushes I marked as crap in the picture above XD !
How can you tell between good and bad brushes? Here’s a quick list:
- Good brushes usually have finer and more hair strands, while cheap ones have rougher, fewer and less elastic hair
- It should be very hard to pull out hair from a good brush, while bad ones loose hair easily
- A good brush will get very sharp at the point when it’s wet. A bad brush won’t change its shape.
- Bad brushes are usually not sharpened at the end (but sometimes they are! Beware!)
If you know what you need to look out for, it’s quite easy to tell apart good brushes from bad ones =)
