Makeup Brushes & Accessories
Any makeup artist will tell you — even if you have the best foundation or finishing powder at your fingertips, you won’t be able to achieve that flawless, soft-focus finish without a really good brush. But don’t worry, we’ve got your brush bases covered with cruelty-free applicators and accessories.

Our selection of makeup applicators and brushes contain non-toxic synthetic bristles and 100% organic cotton fibers that are soft and gentle on your skin. They’re also made without any animal products or animal testing methods.
