6 Bold Makeup Looks To Rock This Pride Month

While you should always be proud of who you are, Pride is an excuse to really let your true colors shine through.

The days of May have been left behind us as we enter June, which kicks off LGBTQ+ Pride month. Not up to speed with what Pride is all about? Have no fear—the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association states that "events, including gay pride parades and festivals were started in major urban centers to improve the visibility, acceptance and legal protections for LGBTQ people living in those communities." In a report conducted by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) in 2017, 72 countries still criminalize same sex relationships. Although slight progression has been made when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights worldwide, it is still vital for the community to let their voices be heard and to be visible.

While you should always be proud of who you are, Pride is an excuse to really let your true colors shine through. Whether you are fighting for the rights of your community or just looking to have a fun time, pride festivals are the perfect place to do so.

For those of who don't feel safe or ready enough to celebrate pride loud & proud just yet: you are just as visible and just as loved! One day when you feel safe and ready, you can join the rest of your LGBT family and maybe rock the colors of a pride flag of your choice.

Here are six different vivid, loud, and proud makeup looks to let everyone know you are not ever backing down.

1. Pride butterfly.

YouTube and Instagram beauty influencer Edwin lays down this intricate, bright butterfly inspired eyeshadow look by using the BH Cosmetics "Take Me Back to Brazil" palette ($18) and the NYX Cosmetics "Ultimate Brights Shadow" palette ($18).

2. Trans flag.

Ash, a transgender boy, confidently asserts that "all makeup is gender neutral" as he rocks the official Trans flag on his eyes and lips. Ash achieves this look by using several shades of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20).

3. "No Tears Left To Cry" inspired rainbow strobing.

Frankie Grande, who you may recognize as a house guest on Big Brother 16, has joined forces with makeup artist Nikki Fontaine to create this rainbow strobing look inspired by none other than his little sister, pop phenomenon Ariana Grande. Frankie wore this look to the 2018 GLAAD awards, which celebrates LGBT figures and diversity. To achieve this look, Fontaine used the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette ($70), Danessa Myricks artisanal pigments ($15), Makeup Forever Star Lit Powder ($21), and single shadows from MBA Cosmetics ($4.50).

4. Rainbow pride.

YouTube and Instagram beauty influencer TheBeautyByBella does not hold back when it comes to popping some color onto her lids. She serves this bright beat by using the Glitter Realm Cosmetics "Summerita" palette ($45.99).

5. Bisexual pride flag.

YouTuber Millie Goode began a pride makeup tutorial series on her channel in 2017. In this installation, she uses the Morphe 35B Color Burst palette ($22-$27) to recreate the color scheme of the bisexual pride flag on her lids.

6. Drag makeup transformation.

Makeup artist and drag queen Morphine Love reviews the "Life's A Drag" palette ($45), which is Manny MUA's debut launch for his cosmetics brand Lunar Beauty. This is no ordinary makeup tutorial— Morphine Love MUA comes through with a vibrant drag transformation, which only seems fitting for a "Life's A Drag" moment.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
