The tools an artist uses to transform a canvas are super important. In order to get certain effects, one must use the correct utensil. The same goes for makeup. Consider yourself the most sought out artist who transforms your face on the daily. You are the makeup artist and your beautiful face is precious, expensive canvas.
With the world of makeup moving so quickly, it's easy to overlook trends that are here to stay. One of these trends happens to be the introduction of eco-friendly products for the environmentally conscious consumer. Eco-products in cosmetics include mineral formulations without preservatives, parabens, allergens & unwanted fillers. Eco-friendly packaging includes recycled, biodegradable, sustainable or natural options with non-carcinogenic ink print. Eco-friendly brushes include the use of natural woods and synthetic filaments for hair. A huge bonus to using eco-friendly products is that they're not likely to cause cancer and perform well on even the most sensitive skin. You can also check your animal inhumane worries at the door when entering. Save the animals and Mother Earth in one, swift swoop.
Royal & Langnickel's Silk Greenline is a wonderful addition that the makeup world is happy to have. This 12 piece makeup brush set boasts bamboo handles as well as synthetic filaments.

Here's another fabulous plus you may or may not know about synthetic brush hairs- They inhibit bacterial growth, which makes them a perfect choice for anyone who breaks out regularly. Synthetic brush hairs can also handle the regular abuse of liquids and cream consistencies compared to their natural counterparts. They're also easier to clean. Who doesn't love that?!
A few must haves from the Silk Greenline collection are:
- The powder brush. It's awesomely soft and provides a sheer coverage for setting powders. Did we mention it's soft?! Cuddle it.
- The smudger brush. This brush is like a reusable Q-Tip on a stick that's amazing for a smoky look. The bristles are tightly packed together to help prevent eye shadow falloff when working with dark colors.
- The lash / brow brush. Forget the plastic imposters. Metal teeth never break and are actually closer together to really de-clump even the most testy mascaras.
- The angled eye shadow brush. It's really nice for a sheer, one color look for when you don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning. This brush is also fluffy enough for blending bliss.
All in all, give this brush line a try. You'll be quite pleased with your purchase. I promise.
Your eco-friendly brush line awaits...
