While Los Angeles and New York Pride may be over, it’s still Pride month, and there’s still plenty of time to show your pride or support of the LGBTQ community. If you want to support the community all summer (or year!) long, you can by learning how to recreate MAC’s Pride makeup. From rainbow lips to glitter eyes, the looks are fun, festive, and you can rock them far after Pride month has officially ended.
MAC — who’s motto is all All Ages, All Races, All Sexes — was actually a sponsor of Los Angeles and New York Prides this year. The cosmetics brand hosted a music festival and drag queen performances at their booth during the Los Angeles Pride parade, and they also created some seriously killer looks in support of the LGBTQ community.
During Pride celebrations in Los Angeles, makeup artist Ashley Rudder and John Stapleton created incredible looks for attendees. The good news is that you can now recreate those looks to take with you through the entire summer. While makeup artist looks may seem daunting, the process is actually pretty seamless. All you need to create the looks are a few products and a few minutes. You’ll be Pride-ready in no time!
What looks should you recreate?
1. Glitter Lip
If you want to rock something impactful but simple, the glitter lip is the way to do it. First, apply a vibrant lip color — preferably a liquid lipstick — to create a base. Then, tap glitter into the lip color, and you’ve got an instant fun lip.
As for products, MAC recommends the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour and the MAC Glitter.

Remember, the brighter, the better.

2. Rainbow Eye
If you want to rock a gorgeous eye look, the rainbow eye is for you. While the look uses a few products, MAC suggests using the Chromagraphic liner as a way to map out the rainbow sections of the eye to get that perfect look. Then, you can fill them in with shadows and glitters for an extra oomph.
Glitter in Red, $22, MAC

MAC Pigment in Green Space, $22, MAC
MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Lunar, $20, MAC

While several products are required, the time it takes to achieve this look is so worth it — look how gorgeous that eye is!
