@ravvebeauty spotlight the best rainbow-inspired beauty looks for Pride


TextJules and Gebs

This month, underground beauty curators @ravvebeauty head somewhere over the rainbow with the best Pride-themed looks

The brainchild of best friends Jules and Gebs, @RavveBeauty is the Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and celebrating all that is disturbing, disarming and alluring when it comes to underground beauty. Doubled up contact lenses, iridescent face shimmer, obscure facial piercings, heads shaved to look like flowers in full bloom,unibrows, no brows, wiggly brows. Lending us their well-honed eye, here they pick their top beauty Instagrams of the month.

Pride season is coming to a close but that doesn’t mean that the kaleidoscope of colours we’ve been enjoying during this rainbow-saturated time needs to end as well. Pride should be celebrated all year around! The rainbow is only the tip of the LGBTQ+ iceberg, and many have felt that it is reductive to boil down fifty years of history and activism into a symbol that can be commodified and splashed across every fast food business and car-sharing app for the duration of June. However, representation and solidarity remain vital and at the heart of the rainbow is the message that true beauty can only emerge when each and every one of us is free to be ourselves and show our true colours without judgment or reproach.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are our favourite rainbow-filled beauty looks this Pride season.
