HAUGHTY COSMETICS LAUNCHES IN DC: Launch Event will Benefit Becky’s Fund

WASHINGTON DC----- Haughty Cosmetics, a new luxury makeup line founded by Michelle Coyle, will launch in DC with an event benefiting Becky’s Fund, a non profit organization focused on domestic violence awareness and education, on March 10. Haughty’s mission is to empower women to feel beautiful inside and out while raising money and awareness for domestic violence prevention.

Coyle, 29, founded Haughty after realizing that she could make a difference for countless women by combining her love of cosmetics with her passion to end relationship violence. The resulting product line pledges 50 percent of its profits to domestic violence prevention education. “I am so proud to be launching a company founded on one of my core beliefs: that true beauty comes from empowering others”, Coyle said.

Coyle is proud to partner with Becky’s Fund because they share a common life goal: preventing as many young women as possible from entering into violent and unhealthy relationships.

The event—dubbed CAREaoke—is an annual affair that benefits the organization, and while award-winning journalist Rebecca Cooper (WJLA) was the evening’s hostess, she is also the event’s founder.
