July is disability pride month, therefore I wanted to celebrate by celebrating and recognizing a few brands that are making a huge difference in the disabled community...
Guide was created by makeup artist, Terri Bryant. Terri developed Parkinson's disease which altered her ability to do makeup. To help those who also struggled with hand mobility and stability, she created a makeup line and tools that are ergonomically friendly.
I will never ever forget this moment. Ulta Beauty featured model and pro artist Steph Aiello, on the cover of their catalogue and on large displays in their stores. It touched my heart and many others in the disabled community.
it is difficult for those with vision impairment to identify whether a bottle is shampoo or conditioner. herbal essence recognized this problem and created sensory enhanced bottles. (stripes=shampoo & circles=conditioner)
the beauty bus campaign
Beauty Bus creates popup salons where patients and caregivers receive a variety of complimentary beauty and grooming services at hospitals and social service partners. they have served over 15,000 clients, making a beautiful impact on each.
I hope to see more expansion and adaption for the disabled in society and the beauty industry. If you know of any other brands or campaigns who are doing awesome things for the disabled community please reach out, I would love to support and help promote them. thank you so much for reading and happy disability pride month to all my differently abled beauties! xx
