While in-person Pride celebrations may be put on hold or held virtually this summer, we’ll still be donning rainbow looks (even if it’s just for FaceTime) in support of the LGBTQ2+ community. Below, our top beauty picks for creating the perfect colourful looks for Pride. —Vicki Duong
nyx cosmetics. For a quick and easy pop try NYX Vivid Bright Eye Liners ($7) for an intense colour payoff. They're available in every rainbow hue and, for the entire month of June, will see proceeds from sales up to $25,000 going directly to It Gets Better Canada.
anastasia beverly hills. Created in collab with RuPaul Drag Race fave Alyssa Edwards, this eyeshadow palette ($60) features a mix of mattes and metallics perfect for creating a bold look. Like Alyssa says, with this palette you won’t just get cute, you’ll get drop-dead gorgeous.
lit cosmetics. No pride look is complete without a touch of glitter! Lit offers a variety of 3-D chunky cosmetic-grade glitters ($16) in heart and star shapes perfect for adding a little extra bling to your look.
milk makeup. Need a glow that looks like it’s made from stardust? Swipe on the Holographic Stick ($37) by Milk for an out-of-this-world glow. Made with real meteorite powder and pearls these sticks can also be applied to skin and hair.
sephora collection. Metallic lips are a Pride-look staple; Sephora’s #Lipstories make a bold statement with their limited-edition Love is Love packaging ($10). With a portion of the sales donated to various LGBTQ2+ organizations, you’ll feel and look good in this metallic-red shade.
