Pride Month has finally kicked off so prepare your hearts for loads of celebration for and by the LGBTQ+ community. This month is all about honoring their contributions to our world and the fight they consistently engage in for equal rights and total acceptance. There are so many beauty collections dropping for Pride Month. We've rounded up the best ones that look super cool and more importantly, will earn proceeds that go directly to the LGBTQ+ community.
We're not doing rainbow beauty just to do it. It's important to remember that the LGBTQ+ community doesn't exist for the amusement and entertainment of straight cis people. They are a marginalized group facing very real attacks on their right to simply just be and love who they want to love. We want to make sure our dollars go towards to helping them do just that so ahead, you'll find a round-up of Pride-themed beauty products with proceeds that actually go towards helping LGBTQ+ people.
Tarte Pride Month Collection
Tarte dropped a complete Pride collection that includes a Jessie Paege X Tarte Let It Rain-Bow Eye set ($24, Tarte Cosmetics), a pair of lashes, a pot of glitter gel, and a liquid chrome paint metallic pigment with fun stencils. The best part about this collection is that the eye shadow palette was created in collaboration with YouTube influencer, Jessie Paege, who proudly identifies as bisexual and has documented her coming out experience and journey as a member of the LGBTQ+ community on her YouTube channel.
"Together, we have joined forces to donate $25k to @trevorproject — a leading national organization providing crisis intervention [and] suicide prevention services to LGBTQ+ young people under 25," Paege and Tarte confirmed on Instagram.
