Things to Consider When Choosing Makeup Tools
1. Compatibility & Safety
The first attribute of a makeup tool is its functionality. Therefore, the first thing to do is to make sure the compatibility with formula and the safety of the material itself. In this way, no harmful material will cause skin irritation. In particular, as consumers pay more attention to health and wellness in recent years, the compatibility and safety of beauty tools have become all the more important.
When choosing makeup tools, the comfortable experience of consumers should be considered. Taking the makeup brush for an example, it needs to be soft and skin-friendly so as to ensure smooth application. In addition, different tools should be selected for different purposes to achieve the best experience. For example, to select a densely or sparsely packed brush, it depends on the makeup purpose. A densely packed brush may be more suitable for foundation while a sparsely packed one may be suitable for blush, eye shadow or concealer as it will help to create a soft and blended finish. Whether the handle is ergonomic is another consideration. It will determine whether you are comfortable with the beauty tool.
3. Ecological Consciousness
According to our market researches and the data we collected about sourcing preferences, we find that today’s consumers expect something sustainable and cruelty-free. That means they want what they use to cause the minimum impacts on the planet or on other living creatures. Brushes and other makeup tools made from sustainable materials such as PCR, bamboo, wood, other bio-based materials or recyclable materials are the most frequently requested. The synthetic fiber brushes show the caring for animals.
Thinking of having an one-size-fits-all tool? It is not totally impossible, at least to some extent. Certainly, consumers can choose those from a kit covering all sizes and shapes of tools to achieve different makeup purposes. Or they can also use some versatile tool to simplify their beauty routine. For example, some brush may be suitable for foundation, eye makeup and concealer. Contour and highlight can also be realized by one tool.
