Pride Month is officially here! Showing off your Pride makeup looks to show support is an absolute must (and an excellent excuse to experiment with bold and bright colors). No matter how you’re celebrating this year, you might as well do so while wearing the rainbow, whether in the form of eye makeup or nail art. Ahead, we’ve rounded up five makeup tutorials we love that will help you celebrate and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community this June.
A Rainbow Cut Crease
For a look that’s extra in the best way, Lonyea Maiden created an intricate, cut-crease makeup look. If you’re committing to it, keep in mind that you’ll need to bring your patience, a bright eyeshadow palette (like the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette) and a chunk of time to get it done. The end result will be worth it, we promise.
Blended and Bright Graphic Eye
In this tutorial, @udstevenk shows us how to masterfully blend every Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil of the rainbow to create a festive, all-over eye look. We love that he chose shades with various finishes — from matte to glittery — for a dimensional result.
YouTuber Camden Scott walks us through the easiest rainbow eyeliner tutorial we’ve ever seen. Scott starts by applying white winged eyeliner, which she tops with yellow eyeshadow pigment, followed by other colors of the rainbow. To perfect the look, she blends out harsh lines with an angled makeup sponge and takes a cotton swab dipped in micellar water to clean up her winged liner and erase any remaining white liner.
A Glittery, Statement Lip
Make your lips the center of attention by recreating this mesmerizing rainbow glitter lip look by artist ElectraSnow. This one is time consuming, but totally worth it. Remember to choose a loose glitter that’s safe for use on your lips!
