Celebrating pride with these powerful Black beauty looks

The true colours of Pride

The brainchild of best friends Jules and Gebs, @ravvebeauty is the Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and celebrating all that is disturbing, disarming, and alluring when it comes to underground beauty. Lending us their well-honed eye, here they pick their top beauty Instagrams of the month.

This year, Pride is going back to its roots. With the COVID-19 pandemic raining on almost every Pride’s parade, celebratory marches and parties all around the world have been cancelled. Goodbye Facebook-sponsored floats, see you later bank-branded rainbow merch. And as the world takes a stand against police brutality and institutionalized racism, we remember that without Black people and transgender people the LGBTQ+ community would not have the rights it has today. The purpose of Pride has revealed its true colours: less partying, more political action.

On Instagram, the beauty community has been standing in solidarity with its queer Black and trans members, using their faces and bodies to make a statement. Selection by @ravvebeauty.
