This month’s celebration of the LGBTQ+ community has us feeling all types of inspired. With looks from Pride Month events consistently flooding our feeds, we’re finding all kinds of rainbow makeup looks to rock at the LGBTQ+ events popping up throughout the month.

From ombre lips to bejeweled eyes, we’ve gathered a few of our fave looks that’ll be worthy of any Pride celebration.

1. Rhinestone Eyes

So you’ve picked out your perfect outfit but there’s one more thing you might have overlooked that’ll have you feeling totally flawless: rhinestones. The festive look can be a perfect way to step up your Pride makeup game! For a smart how-to on the look, check out Rosita Rodriguez’s Pride inspired tutorial, we love her look. If you’re scampering for last minute embellishments, just remember that there’s nothing more festive than hitting up your local craft store.

2. The Literal Artist Palette

Pride Month is all about the expression and celebration of individuality and identity. When it comes to accomplishing this expression while also incorporating a unique take on Pride colors, beauty YouTuber Louie Castro undoubtedly does it best.

(But seriously, how can we get this makeup look to be recreated as a Snapchat filter?)

3. Rainbow Ombre Lips

One of our fave beauty influencers, Karen aka @iluvsarahii, previously shared this eye-catching ombre rainbow lip using all Mac Cosmetics lipsticks. (Lipsticks for reference: Heroine, RubyWoo, Forbidden Sunrise, Yellow You Dare, Into the Madness, Deep with Envy and Blue Bang)

4. Double-Winged Liner

When in doubt, wing it out like makeup lover Kerie Ortiz. Whether you’re heading to a Pride celebration or just a grocery store, as Ortiz suggests, this eye look will have you catching actually lewks with the help of this bright and colorful step by step eye tutorial.

5. Blushing with Pride

Celeb MUA Priscilla Ono is best known as Riri’s right-hand lady when it comes to her fierce beauty looks. Ono’s talented makeup skills make us want to try this cheeky trend that features a pretty fierce “Stunna” lip.

6. Pretty Pastels

Best known for his bronzed looks, ipsy stylist and beauty influencer Gabriel Zamora created this subtle but sweet eye look using only two Colourpop eyeshadows: Daddy and Zoomship.

If you’re looking for a more subtle (yet still colorful) makeup look, beauty influencer Alva Velasco shared a stunning tutorial which features a subtle take on Pride inspired makeup that we can’t get enough of.
