Beauty comes from within, right? Of course it does. And with these beauty products, your inner beauty will shine through as well with beauty that gives back. Each of these products donates a portion of their proceeds or products to worthy causes. So stock up—it’s good for everyone.
Kitschy spelling of their name aside, Thrive Causemetics delivers on their promises. With each purchase, they donate either products or cash to an organization that helps women thrive, listening to the needs of the organizations so that they can donate what they need most. Dab on some of their Eye Brightener in one of four colors and look woke in more ways than one. Thrive Brilliant Eye Brightener, $24.
MAC has always been there for the serious beauty addict, so much so that 2019 saw 25 years of giving back through its three signature lipsticks, Viva Glam I, II, and III. MAC donates 100 percent of the proceeds to the MAC Aids Fund to battle HIV. Choose from the original vivid blue red, a pinkish-beige mauve, or the newest hue, a muted brownish plum. Viva Glam lipstick, $19, available at Nordstrom or the MAC Cosmetics store on the Country Club Plaza.
In Japanese culture, geishas are held as ideals of grace and beauty. The skincare line Tatcha harnesses the ingredients that keep geishas glowing, while also giving back to girls around the world. A portion of the proceeds from every skincare product benefits the Room to Read Girls’ Education program, which provides schooling for girls in Asia and Africa. Tatcha the Water Cream for clear, smooth skin, $68, available at Sephora (Country Club Plaza, Oak Park Mall, and Zona Rosa.)
