The makeup brush industry is exploding with creativity.

Innovative cruelty-free synthetic fibers (which are more hygienic and hold their shape better than naturals) have inspired new displays of traditional and exotic patterns. Non-ferrous ferrules sporting a new range of finishes, from matte to high gloss to pick-your-color, have taken center stage.

Lovely handles – even interchangeable screw-on or magnetic handles – in a growing variety of woods, metals, plastics, colors and feels, entice us to touch.

Makeup brushes are no longer simply about picking up makeup liquids, powders and colors and depositing, spreading or blending them, evenly, into the skin.

No. Makeup brushes today are meant to be, well, beautiful.

And, oh, they are.

Indeed. They are mixed media art on full display.

We have an endless show of the prettiest brushes on display on our Pinterest board. But here are just a few of our favorites.
