June is for celebrating who you are and who you love, whether you’re a member or an ally of the LGBTQ+ community. For some, the arrival of Pride Month especially means preparing for the parades, festivals, and parties where we want to showcase our most beautiful, most authentic selves.
Pride Month is also a good time to remind ourselves to practice regular self-care and self-love, as well as to help our clients do the same. But in order to look and feel your best, you should be using the best products for the job.
The products included in this roundup run the gamut, from hair and nails to skincare and cosmetics. Each brand has dedicated their product to the LGBTQ+ community, promoting the essential message that beauty is for everyone. Click through on a product to learn more.
Happy Pride Month!

Danessa Myricks Beauty's Rainbow-Inspired Infinite Chrome Flakes Shade
In honor of this year’s Pride Month, Danessa Myricks Beauty has teamed up with the NYC-based rap duo, The Dragon Sisters, in the brand’s first-ever beauty collaboration to release a new rainbow-inspired shade of the cult-favorite Infinite Chrome Flakes.
This multi-colored flake topper is a symbol of support to the LGBTQ+ community for a more accepting and inclusive world where everyone, regardless of their orientation or identity, can create colorfully and discover an inclusive world of beauty with no boundaries.
evolvetogether x Athlete Ally Natural Deodorant
Unlike other deodorants that use buildup-causing ingredients like aluminum, baking soda, and talc, evolvetogether’s plant-based natural deodorant neutralizes odors instead of trapping or masking them. It has active fragrances that react to your body temperature — making it the perfect way for tweens, teens, and adults to embrace their sweat (and themselves) naturally.
An extra 5% of every natural deodorant sold in June will be donated to Athlete Ally, a nonprofit working alongside athletes, leaders, and organizations to end homophobia and transphobia in sports.
