To celebrate Veganuary, we are looking at the best vegan makeup brushes to clean up your beauty routine and make your makeup application a little more ethical. Discover our favourites below.

Brush set: Lime Crime Hot Stuff Brush Set

Known for their vegan and cruelty-free approach to beauty, it's no doubt Lime Crime top our best vegan makeup brushes edit.

Their Hot Stuff Brush Set comprises a trio of makeup brushes, including Fluffy Powder Brush, Angled Contour Brush and Pointed Blush Brush.

Plus, we are in LOVE with their glitter handles and bright pink ends. What more could you want?

Foundation brush: INIKA Vegan Foundation Brush

INIKA's Vegan Foundation Brush helps to achieve a naturally dewy finish thanks to its super soft and evenly-distributed bristles.

The flat head buffs product into the skin for beautifully flawless results. Both 100% vegan and cruelty-free, it's one of the best vegan makeup brushes we have tried and tested.

For liquid-specific formulations such as BB or CC creams, the Cover FX Liquid Foundation Brush is also a great option as its dense bristle structure doesn't absorb liquid.

Blush brush: Urban Decay F107 Diffusing Blush Brush

Blush is always better when applied with a blush-specific brush as opposed to a general powder brush. This is because it deposits product in a chiselled shape, which creates a better pop of colour.

We love Urban Decay's F107 Diffusing Blush Brush, which can be used for both blusher and bronzer and is made with an aluminium for long-lasting results.

Highlighter brush: Urban Decay F106 Diffusing Highlighter Brush

The glow you see on all the Instagram models and bloggers is partly due to product, partly due to application technique.

For the best natural radiance, choose Urban Decay's F106 Diffusing Highlighter Brush, which gives a beautiful swipe of luminosity to the skin.

Cruelty-free and supersoft synthetic bristles are easily washable and deposit the perfect amount of product each time.

Eyeshadow brush: Urban Decay E203 Large Eyeshadow Brush

Create a multitude of eye makeup looks with Urban Decay's E203 Large Eyeshadow Brush.

Made from synthetic bristles sourced from recycled plastic bottles, the brush is not only cruelty-free but environmentally-friendly.

Distributing the perfect amount of pigment onto lids without fallout, it's one of our all-time favourite vegan makeup brushes.

Brow brush: BBB London Brow Tamer

Achieve perfect-looking brows with BBB London's Brow Tamer.

The expert product has been specially created to bring fine hairs into line so you can perfect your brow arch with ease.

Whatever brow product you love to use, make sure you start with this so you have a flawless canvas pre makeup-application.

Powder brush: Cover FX Powder Brush

Apply powder blush and bronzer, or your makeup setting powder with Cover FX's Powder Brush.

It has super soft synthetic Natrafil® fibres, which blend product seamlessly into the skin for a natural and flawless finish.

Both vegan and cruelty-free, it's one of the best vegan makeup brushes to clean up your beauty routine.

Concealer brush: INIKA Vegan Concealer Brush

INIKA's Vegan Concealer Brush has been specially formulated with densely-packed yet super soft bristles for perfect concealer application.

It's ideal to cover both dark circles under the eyes and blemishes/redness on the skin for a flawless complexion.
