While it seems like spring only sprung yesterday, June — a.k.a Pride month — is just around the corner. Pride is known for parades, performances and events to commemorate the accomplishments and visibility of the LGBTQ+ community. What you might not know is that Pride began as a pursuit of equal justice for the community, and the event that kickstarted the gay rights movement — better known as the Stonewall riot — occurred on June 28, 1969 in New York City.

Since then, Pride parades have been celebrated nationally to support the LGBTQ+ community, and with parades come tons of colorful looks. So, if you're in need of serious makeup inspiration for your next Pride event, you've come to the right place. I've got you covered with rainbow-filled looks you'll be proud to show off.
