6 Makeup Tutorials To Rock This Pride Month
This weekend has already been a historical one, and it's only Saturday. On Friday, SCOTUS declared same-sex marriage bans unconstitutional (cue cheering, dancing, and crying), which makes this year's Pride Month that much, well, prideful. And after the decision was made, celebrations ensued across the country, and the party definitely won't stop for a while because there's a lot to celebrate.
Not only was the country filled with pride this week, but it also got a little bit more colorful. National monuments, such as the White House, got a Pride makeover, with lights making a rainbow across the front of the Obama residence. Feeling inspired by the SCOTUS decision? Don't let the First Family have all the rainbow-colored fun! Whether you want to rock a simple gay pride button like the one Miley Cyrus wore, or go all-out by sporting some badass rainbow hair, changing your look for Pride is a great way to show your support for the LGBTQ community while you're having a blast this weekend.
But if a permanent dye job isn't for you, these YouTube vloggers can teach you some fabulous ways to rock rainbow makeup that's just as fun but requires way less commitment. So, while you're waiting for a rainbow emoji to appear on your iPhone, try some rainbow lips or eyes while you're heading off to a parade, rally, or "way to go SCOTUS" party.
Check out these awesome rainbow makeup tutorials below.
1. Rainbow Glitter Eyes
This look uses soft colors on the lid, and a flashy, glitter liner on the bottom lash line that would make any outfit pop with pride.

It's always important to recognize that Pride month is not just about one type of identity, and the LGBTQ community boasts a variety of flags and colors to reflect that.
