5 Rainbow-Inspired Makeup Looks to Try This Pride Month

Pride Month is officially here! No matter how you’re celebrating (be it at a parade with friends, indulging in a pretty pint of Big Gay Ice Cream or by using every single new pride gif on Insta stories) you might as well do so while wearing a full face of pride-inspired makeup. We’ve rounded up five makeup tutorials for minimalists, maximalists and everything in between. Ahead, choose the right way to wear the rainbow and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community this June.

A rainbow highlighter we think even minimalists can get behind...

 Beauty vlogger Nicol Concilio reviews Maybelline FaceStudio Master Fairy Highlight Rainbow Highlighter, a simple pride staple for minimalists and beauty lovers looking for an easy way to embrace the colors of the rainbow. For a dramatic effect, use the included makeup sponge to press down on the rainbow compact and then drag down your cheekbone in one sweeping motion. For a more subtle look, dust a makeup brush around the compact to mix the colors together and then apply to your cheekbones just as you would your normal highlighter.


For all you gals looking for the easiest rainbow eyeliner tutorial on the Internet…

YouTuber Camden Scott walks us through the easiest rainbow eyeliner tutorial we’ve ever seen. Scott starts by applying white winged eyeliner and over that she applies yellow eyeshadow pigment to start, followed by other colors of the rainbow. To perfect the look, she blends out harsh lines with an angled makeup sponge and takes a Q-Tip dabbed in micellar water to clean up her winged liner and erase any remaining white liner.


Glitter obsessed? Look no further…

Make your lips the center of attention by recreating this mesmerizing rainbow glitter lip look by artist ElectraSnow. This one’s more time consuming, but it’s sure to be a valuable asset to your Instagram feed. Remember to use a loose glitter that’s safe for use on your lips!


Maximalist rainbow eye makeup look…

If you love rainbow liner, but you’re only about doing the absolute most, check out this video by NikkieTutorials. Nikkie uses her most most vibrant, pigmented eyeshadow shades, her boldest falsies and a large majority of her makeup stash to bring this full face beat to life.


The rainbow cut-crease that’s as extra as you are…

We can always rely on James Charles to bring us a look that’s extra, but in the best way. Charles first debuted the look on social media, causing fans to freak out and beg him to create a tutorial. This is his fifth time recreating the intricate, cut-crease makeup look. If you’re committing to it, keep in mind that you’ll need to bring your patience and a chunk of time to kill.
