On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Rebellion propelled the LGBTQ+ rights movement forward. As such, every June, we celebrate Pride Month to honor the victims in Stonewall, celebrate the progress that has been made, and reflect on what the future needs to look like.
Here are 4 Pride beauty collections we’re excited to spotlight this Pride Month.
1. 100% of net proceeds, up to $40,000, from Bliss’ new Limited-Edition Pride Makeup Melt Wipes will be donated to The Trevor Project, an organization that supports LGBTQ+ youth. The wipes are enriched with chamomile, marshmallow root, and aloe extracts to soothe skin while removing tough (even waterproof) makeup.
2. Morphe’s Free To Be You Collection includes a 10-pan rainbow eyeshadow palette, a brush set, lip gloss, and setting spray. 100% of net proceeds from the collection on morphe.com and at Morphe stores (a minimum of $50,000) will be donated to GLSEN to create safe and supportive environments for LGBTQ+ youth in K-12 schools.
3. 50% of the net proceeds from the Pride edition of Sigma beauty’s #1 best-selling F80 Flat Kabuki Foundation Brush will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.
4. NYX, in celebration of Pride month, is releasing a limited edition packaging for its Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette, Brights Eyeliner, and satin lipstick. All year round, NYX has committed to donating $30,000+ to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
