Pride Basics

pride basics

Last weekend was extremely hectic. With it being Canada day, Pride, and the Euro Cup Final there was no time to stop and breath. I think I was nursing a 4 day hang over by the end, and boy did I pay for it. Now that I've recovered I managed to put a Pride makeup tutorial together!

If some of you don't know what Pride is, it's basically the celebration of the Gay community. Pride falls on a different week in each city. If Pride hasn't happened in your city yet, I totally recommend going out and enjoying a great party.

I had two different looks for the weekend of Pride, but decided to do a tutorial on the look that I got most compliments on. To be honest, I whipped up this look while I was extremely hung over. I'm going to pat myself on the back for that one.

Above you'll see some of the products I consider to be Pride basics.

First off contour, you can't do drag or fierce without a little contour, in fact the more the better. Next up color liners. You really can't go wrong with color at pride use any color combination to make unique looks. Also, making sure the liners are waterproof is key. Pride usually falls in the summer, so you want to make sure that your makeup stays on all day. 

One thing I forgot to mention are lashes. I was too hung over to be bothered with applying fake lashes. Instead, I chose a fiber mascara that made my lashes look fake. Urban Decay's Big Fatty Mascara did the job. Now a pop of color on the lips, I stuck with a baby doll pink gloss from Lorac called Haute. It's perfectly creamy and gives you just the right amount of color. Last but not least, SHIMMER. Go wild with glitter and shimmer, it gives the look a little flash!

Check out the tutorial for a little more detail.

Take care, and happy Pride!
