What better time than pride to wear fun, bright and colorful makeup?
We have two looks to inspire your pride look.
Firstly, Metro.co.uk has teamed up with Angel-AfricaAn influencer from the LGBTQ+ community, proudly working with Lottie London to create inspired makeup looks.
Below is our video and easy to follow step-by-step, whether you want to do it with a tee or use it as a starting point for your own look.
Here’s how to do it.
How to Create This Proudly Inspired Makeup Look
Angel-Africa takes you through her tutorial. If you don’t have these exact products, you can easily swap them out using what you have.
step 1: start with Lottie London Proudly Becomes Lottie Palette in a shade of red, and work that onto the brow bone (underneath the arch of your eyebrow), drawing it out and up for an elongated look. This will help blend in the blush later in the look.
step 2: Take the orange neckline and work it down the middle of the brow bone, slightly overlapping the red color. This will help make it easier to mix the two colors.
step 3: Now take a yellow shade and apply it in the upper corner of the brow bone. You want to make sure it stays high enough because you will be putting another color under it.
step 4: Apply the shimmery gold color all over the lid. It works best with your finger patting on the lid.
Step 5: Using a small brush, work the shimmery green into the corner of the eye under the yellow shadow. It will make the whole look pop!
Step 6: Next make a sharp wing using the eyeliner. I used blue, but any color works.
Step 7: Use your favorite mascara to bring the drama.
Step 8: To create an eye-catching look use your favorite blusher and apply it high up where the eye look ends. Apply blush while pulling upward on the cheekbone and over the temples and brow bone.
Step 9: Finally for something extra if you’re feeling up to it, use Lottie London is proud to have Lilac Heart Stamp Liner On one cheek following the shape of the blush. Now you are ready to kill!
For our second look, we worked together unit To make something shiny and bold from MAC Cosmetics.
It’s also easy to do, mainly just using eyeliner in different tones and overlapping them to create a ‘fade in’ look.
