5 Next-Level Rainbow Makeup Looks to Try for Pride MonthJune 02, 2022
Pride month is officially here! 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, bright eyeshadow colors (like the NYX Professional Ultimate Eye Paints) and a chunk of time to get it done. The end result will be worth it, we promise.
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 (we love the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water With Hyaluronic Acid + Aloe) 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. Create your base with a red lipstick, like the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Bad Blood, and then top it off with a loose glitter that’s safe for use on your lips!
A Maximalist, Multi-Colored Eye
If you’re all about doing the absolute most, check out this rainbow gradient tutorial. Makeup artist Jonet Williamson used the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Créme Colours to create this look and shared the deets on how to successfully achieve it at home.
