Makeup Brands That Are Showing Their Pride This Month

Whether it’s a smokey eye, a sharp contour, or a bold lip, makeup has always been tied to self identity, self expression, and individuality. These factors play into promoting self-confidence and play by one of the most important rules of the industry; if you got it, flaunt it.

This month, we’re all about supporting brands that promote love and inclusivity by giving back to the LGBTQ community.  Here are a few of our favourite Pride products that are paving the way for the beauty industry. read more…

Pride Edition: What’s Inside Tynomi Banks’ Bag?

As a performer, drag queen Tynomi Banks has to be ready for anything at a moment’s notice– so she doesn’t just carry a bag, she brings with her a small luggage packed with all the must-have’s of a queen. And with Pride events happening across the city all month long, her bag is full of glitter, fun accessories, extra pantyhose, and more for the festivities!

As for what we should have in our bags for Pride, Tynomi says dry shampoo and sunscreen are a must: “If you’re going to the parade it’s HOT—keep your hair looking fresh with a good dry shampoo [like] Sexy Hair. Also, make sure you’ve got sunscreen in your bag. I like Goddess Garden, it’s natural, non-greasy, and smells like heaven.”

We recently had the chance to catch up with Tynomi and ask her the age-old question… “What’s inside your bag?” Scroll through some the ~essentials~ in her bag for Pride below.
