From Morphe to Marc Jacobs, here are the beauty brands supporting the LGBTQ+ community this Pride 2020.
While there is long list of brilliant charities you can donate to directly, some beauty brands are also giving customers the chance to support the community by simply purchasing a product. Which is particularly great if you were going to make the purchase anyway.
