RuPaul once said, “Honey, you are born naked, everything else is drag!” As one of the most visible and famous faces in Drag Queen history, there is no entertainer like RuPaul. In the early 90's, RuPaul became the face of MAC Cosmetics, launching a partnership that raised over $22 million dollars for the MAC AIDS fund. To date, they have raised over $90 million dollars, and you can still purchase their VIVA GLAM lipstick with every single cent of the $14 selling price going to help men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS around the world.
Estée Lauder, the parent company of MAC and many other beauty brands, has also been at the forefront in bringing awareness and research dollars for other causes, like supporting the fight against breast cancer. Make sure you check out their pink ribbon beauty products sold during the month of October. Evelyn Lauder's The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrfcure.org) has helped over 1.6 billion people worldwide since 1992. In the quest to look good, it's nice to know that by purchasing makeup for a good cause, you are helping to do something good for others too!
