Best Instagram Captions to Show Off Your Pride Makeup

It's Pride month, which is not only the most uplifting time of year for the LGBTQ+ community—but it's also the perfect opportunity to show your support with expressive makeup.

Not sure about you, but we love any excuse to get all dolled up in glittery glam—especially when it's for a cause we believe in! Granted, we're still practicing social distancing, so our done-up looks likely won't go past our camera lens, but nevertheless, we can't wait to document them while partaking in something powerful.

If you plan to spend the weekend in front of your bathroom mirror with a colorful array of beauty products, keep reading for the best Instagram captions to show off your Pride makeup:
