Rainbow-Inspired Makeup Looks to Try This Pride Month

Pride Month is officially around the corner! The parades may be cancelled, but showing off your Pride makeup looks to show your support is most definitely not. No matter how you’re celebrating at home (whether that means indulging in a pretty pint of take-out 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. Ahead, we’ve rounded up five makeup tutorials we love that will help you wear the rainbow and show your support for the LGBTQ+ community this June.

A Rainbow Highlight

Beauty vlogger Nicol Concilio reviews Maybelline New York 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.

Prismatic Eyeliner

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, 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.

A Glittery, Tik Tok Worthy Look

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

A Maximalist, Multi-Colored Eye

If you love rainbow liner, but you’re only about doing the absolute most, check out this tutorial. NYC makeup artist Jonet Williamson makes this gradient rainbow eye look effortless using the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Créme Colours.

A Rainbow Cut Crease

We can always rely on James Charles to bring us a look that’s extra, but in the best way. Charles first debuted this 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 get it done.
