June is a month to celebrate. Normally, there would be parades and parties, but on account of the pandemic we’ve had to make a few concessions. LGBTQIA creatives and allies have been lighting up social media with their killer Pride Make-Up Looks, and we are absolutely inspired. Here are a few of our favourites, if you’re looking to add some colour to your life for the rest of this Pride month (and after!).
Rainbow Pride Make up Looks
Obviously, this list wouldn’t be complete without a whole tone of rainbow looks to brighten up your day.

If you need an excuse to whip out those make-up palettes you’ve been neglecting, permission granted. But let’s remember that pride doesn’t have to end with June. Keep letting your creative juices flow and your light shine for the rest of the year!
