Queer-owned beauty brands to check out

Within the world of beauty, there is a growing number of brands that champion diversity, equality, and representation as enthusiastically as they do vibrant eyeshadows and flawless foundations. These cosmetics companies have incorporated advocacy work into their business models, delivering messages of inclusivity and love. As we gear up to commemorate Pride Month, let’s highlight five leading queer-owned cosmetics brands.

Celebrate Pride Month with all the colors of the rainbow

While we celebrate Pride Month with extra glitter and vibrant hues, let’s remember how important it is to support the LGBTQ community not just in June but year-round. These queer-owned cosmetics brands not only offer an array of products to express yourself but also support the LGBTQ+ community. So, whether you’re touching up your foundation or applying that bold lipstick, remember — you’re contributing to a more inclusive world, one makeup product at a time. Beauty, after all, is more than skin deep.
