It’s officially June. Which also means it’s officially Pride Month. This year there are many great ways to show your pride and your support.
Many brands, in both the worlds of beauty and fashion, are doing their part to help make a difference. In addition to helping us proudly flaunt our support, companies are even donating part of their proceeds to established advocacy organizations. Giving us another reason to fill our virtual carts to the brim.
On the fashion front, there are comfy unisex T-shirts, cool classic shades and preppy windbreakers. All items you need in your wardrobe anyway. Making now a great time to indulge.
When it comes to beauty, there’s certainly lots to love. From an ultra creamy moisturizer to a colorful eyeshadow palette to two blushes in one handy stick, there’s something for every part of your regimen. Plus, most come in Pride packaging, which will look great on your Instagram.
We know things are a bit tight right now. While you want to give back, you still have to stick to a budget. Which is why we made sure to include many reasonably priced must-haves. Some for under $20. That way you can pledge your allegiance to this very worthy cause without breaking the bank.
