5 Rainbow-Inspired Pride Makeup Looks to Try (Even From Home)May 19, 2020
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 HighlightBeauty 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.
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.
