These Beauty Brands Are Supporting Pride In The Best Way Possible
From Starbucks cups to Ikea bags, many brands cover their products in a rainbow pattern as a way to show support for LGBTQ+ communities during Pride month, and the beauty industry is no different.
The LGBTQ+ community has been hugely influential in the beauty world as brand founders, professional artists, and trendsetters. So, to show support, several brands are creating limited-edition lipsticks or special makeup collections to honor Pride. And while some companies just slap a rainbow label onto their beloved products and call it a day, the brands ahead are using their power to donate goods and/or funds to LGBTQ+ organizations that deserve our attention.
This year's Pride comes at a time when supporting these organizations feels especially important because the Trump administration continues to attempt to restrict the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals in the U.S. Luckily, beauty brands like Urban Decay, Milk Makeup, and Tarte are stepping up and trying to make a real difference.

Kathy Ireland rose to fame as a supermodel in the 1980s and 1990s. She’s best known for appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. She’s gone on to become an entrepreneur and build a multi-billion dollar empire with her brand “Kathy Ireland Worldwide.” Ireland tells Yahoo Life the first model she hired when she started her brand was her mom. “I love representing every shape, size, color and age,” she says. “We’re seeing that more and more and I love that. Everyone wants to be represented and I think that’s important.” She also says that old job description of “shut up and pose” is not acceptable anymore. She encourages women to use their voices. “Do not let anyone or your circumstances dismiss you.”
Olivia Mancuso’s wedding ceremony was truly stunning — a sight to behold in more ways than one.
