Pride Month ushers in some of our favorite things: messages from powerful LGBTQ+ voices, opportunities to highlight and honor the legacies of those in the community, and plenty of occasions to sparkle and shine. Let's pack on the glitter and break out our most vibrant liner. It's a celebration after all!
On that note, here are our top picks for getting into the Pride Month spirit. From multi-use berry hued balms for a more natural beat, to all-over glitter so you can glisten from head to toe, there's something on this list for everyone.
UOMA Beauty Boss Gloss Liquid Marble
It's giving high-shine goals, and we're here for it. This hydrating glossy lip topper works perfectly on its own, but for extra drama, layer it over your favorite lip color (we recommend pairing it with matte formulas for maximum impact).
*This zero-compromise formula soaks the lips with full glossy color in one stroke for a glass-like finish.
*It's packed with lychee fruit extract for buttery soft lips.
*It protects from UV radiation and stress, so whether you're hitting an outdoor parade in your city or gearing up for an all-day rally, your lips will be safe and protected.
rms beauty signature set
Say hello to your favorite rms beauty products, conveniently grouped into two color palette choices: Mod Collection illuminates, perks up, and contours with master mixer, living luminizer, lip2cheek, and lip & skin balm. The Pop Collection also features lip2cheek and lip & skin balm (but in different shades) plus buriti bronzer and magic luminizer.
*Super simple: Dab, swipe, blend, and glow, and then off you go.
*Convenient: Toss it in your bag post touch-up and get back to the celebration.
Sunday Riley Fairy Godmother Shimmering Body Oil Gel
So where's the drama on this list? No to worry, we obviously wouldn't do a Pride roundup without a healthy dose of glitter. Meet Fairy Godmother Shimmering Body Oil Gel. Its an all-over, golden shimmer that sinks in and nurtures your skin with glow-boosting antioxidants.
*Fresh feel: This dry body oil absorbs instantly.
*Versatile: It leaves behind a tinted sparkle and smooth hydration thats perfect for all your Pride events but subtle enough to use all summer long.
Pai The Impossible Glow
More of a shine than shimmer type? Pai gets it. For subtle radiance, add one drop to your daily moisturizer and achieve that lit-from-within glow, not just for Pride month, but all year long.
*Layerable formula to amp your glow: For an intense bronzing effect to replicate the strobing technique, massage one to two drops directly into skin.
*Drama, as needed: Gently dab across cheekbones to use as a highlighter.
Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek
This multitasking lip and cheek duo blends seamlessly onto skin to deliver a natural, radiant finish. The innovative compact features a lightweight pink tint on one end (Rendezvous) and a clear balm (Swipe) on the other for a beautiful sheen.
*Its buildable formula ensures you can keep adding until you've achieved the pink of your dreams.

While a self-described social butterfly, I find empowerment in my independence. Taking myself on a spur of the moment solo vacation, dinner dates to new restaurants or parts of the city where my company is solely the characters in the book I bring, visiting the local bar and getting to know the bartenders over a glass of wine… or 3. I find that intimate moments with myself leave me feeling brave, confident, and empowered to take on the world without depending on anything else as a buffer. It also gives me time to reflect, plan, journal and explore new places at my own pace.
