Rainbow Pride: Brown

Rainbow Pride: Brown

Hello my lovelies!




In case you missed it, Philly created a new pride flag to incorporate fellow LGBTQ+ people of color, and naturally I'm all for it. The flag now includes the colors brown and black, so I wanted to include these in my series as well. Furthermore, I tried to create a look that I felt would look good on anyone with a darker complexion, although it might look different than it does on my pale ass.




If you notice that my lashes don't look as stark black as usual, it's because I decided to use a brown mascara to keep with the brown color theme. Obviously, you can use whatever color you feel is best, but I thought the brown mascara tied in really well, and was a little more subtle.


Let's get started:

  1. Prime the eyelids and set with shadow one, or any other shadow that matches your skin tone best.
  2. Blend shadow two throughout the entire upper crease in order to help with blending darker colors.
  3. Distribute shadow three slightly lower into the crease to create definition in the socket.
  4. Pack shadow four onto the outer corner, blending outward and into the outer half of the crease, as low as possible.
  5. Place shadow five across the empty space of the eyelid. This will help  cover any messy blending, and gives the lid an even brown wash, much like am ombre effect.

Lower Lashline:

  1. Mix shadows two and three and blend across the entire lashline. The further down you blend, the more hazy and smokey this will be.
  2. Blend shadow four onto the outer half of the lashline, connecting upper outer corner.


  1. Pack shadow six onto the tear duct for an added highlight.
  2. Line the waterline with any brown or bronzey liner.
  3. Curl and coat your lashes with brown mascara.


That's all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don't forget to have a fabulous Wednesday. I will hopefully be posting every day for this series.


Stay beautiful!
