Pride 2021: 5 Best Rainbow Makeup and Hair Color Styles

Jun 11, 2021 · 3 minutes read

Pride Month is immensely impactful, and the artistic self-expression that goes along with it is a big piece of why. This article will cover the five best rainbow makeup and rainbow hair color styles for you to try out for yourself during Pride Month and throughout the year!

Why Rainbow Makeup for Pride

Before we get into the specifics of makeup and hair colors it’s important to discuss why the rainbow color scheme is so crucial to Pride in the first place.

The rainbow flag was first popularized as a symbol of Pride in 1978 by the artist Gilbert Baker in San Francisco. The colors of the rainbow are often associated with diversity in the gay community, but each color on its own also has special meanings. Red is for life, orange is for healing, yellow is for the sun, and green is for nature.

The flag is the most common symbol, but you can also see interpretations on the internet or at parades by way of rainbow eye makeup, rainbow hair color, rainbow face paint, rainbow lip art, and rainbow unicorns.

Top 5 Stunning Pride Rainbow Makeup Looks to Try

Thanks to the beauty of the rainbow, there are limitless ways for you to express your love of Pride with your makeup or hairstyle. The YouCam Makeup app is a free makeup app with thousands of makeup styles and dozens of rainbow makeup at your fingertips. You can customize your style or find your fit in just a few taps! Below are the top five rainbow makeup trends you can try in-app with a tap.

#1. Rainbow Eye Makeup

Eyeshadow is one of the best ways to show rainbow makeup colors because your eyelid is such a perfect canvas! Some variations are to put rainbow colors on your eyelid, or to put rainbow colors all over the eyes, accentuating both your eyelid and under the eye. If that look sounds like one you might want to experiment with, you can try it out with just a few taps of the YouCam Makeup app. Try the look!

#2. Rainbow Unicorn Makeup

Combining the rainbow color scheme with a fantasy creature like a unicorn is another popular way to shine. You can execute this style by way of rainbow eyebrows, shimmers, unicorn purple blush, and accessories. Thanks to all the features available in the YouCam Makeup app, you can bring this look to life without any big commitments. Try the look!

#3. Rainbow Hair Colors

With so many people at the Pride parade, rainbow hair colors are one of the best ways to shine. With such a large canvas to work with, the variations are extensive. You might try hidden rainbow hair, horizontal rainbow hair, or vertical rainbow hair. These styles are especially expensive and time-intensive to try out, so experiment easily with them first by using the YouCam Makeup app. Try Hair Color!

#4. Rainbow Lip Makeup

Lips, like eye makeup, are a great spot to draw on rainbows. There are many variations you can try, from rainbow stripes to an ornate ombre rainbow design. In real life, you can purchase and use a mini lip color kit to draw rainbow lips, although if you aren’t sure the style is for you, you might want to try an easier option.
