Pride month is the perfect time to experiment with your look, show your true colours and embrace who you are. From glittery lids to drag-inspired looks, this month sees some of the most fantastic makeup creations in celebration of Pride and support of the LGBTQ+ community. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite Pride-inspired looks created by the LOOKFANTASTIC beauty pros so that you can recreate these styles and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community this month and beyond.
LOOK ONE: RAIN-BROWS
As created by @jamierutt
Why have standard brows when you can make them colourful instead? We’re loving this rainbow-inspired, bushy brow and dewy skin look from @jamierutt! When you’re going bold with the brows, keeping a simple, glowy base is a great way to make your features pop. This look is ideal for anyone who wants to do rainbow colour in a unique way.
Create your dewy, radiant base using the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. For ultra-seamless results, use a slightly damp beauty blender to gently press the formula into the skin.
Prep and set your brows using the Lime Crime Bushy Brow Gel. Simply brush the product through upwards and allow to dry in place for the laminated look.
Now it’s time to add your colour! Take the vibrant blue, purple, pink, red and yellow shades from the Illamasqua Artistry Palette and begin packing them onto the brows one by one. Start with less product and gradually add a little more colour until you’re happy with the pigment. Use a fluffy blending brush to ensure a smooth blend between colours to create a beautiful rainbow effect.
Top off the look and make your eyes pop with some ultra-fluffy lashes. We adore the Eyelure Faux Mink 811 Lashes for that fierce and fluttery look.
LOOK TWO: DRAG-INSPIRED
As seen on @themakeupwitch
Live out your very own drag race dream with this vibrant look from @themakeupwitch. Inspired by the pansexual flag, this fabulously colourful look is great for anyone who wants to experiment with drag makeup!
Create your sassy liner flick using the Sigma Wicked Eyeliner Pen. Start by lining the lids and bringing them out into a high flick. Then from the outer corner, bring the flick inwards, following the line of your brow bone until you reach the bridge of your nose.
Pack on the colour using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 2. Take the shades A1, D4 and B4 and add colour over where your brows would normally be, taking it high up your forehead and then along the lower lash line for a dramatic look.
Add a pop of pink to your cheeks using the NARS Cosmetic Blush in their iconic shade Orgasm. Use a fluffy brush to apply all over the apples of your cheeks and brush up your cheekbones.
Make a statement with your lips and overline them for the perfect pout using the M.A.C Lip Pencil in the shade Brick. Top off with a high shine gloss such as the NARS Cosmetics Lip Gloss in the shade No Regrets to complete the dramatic look!
