27 Latinx-Owned Beauty Brands To Support Now & Always
·13 min read
There's been a wave of international influence on the U.S. beauty market in the last few years. From K-beauty skin care to French-girl makeup, brands from all over the world have been popping up in our favorite stores, consuming our Instagram feeds, and inspiring new beauty trends. As unique beauty communities get more attention in the beauty aisle, we're seeing an uptick in brands owned by Latinx men and women, too.
The Latinx community prides itself in having a strong connection to la belleza. It has given birth to some of the most talented makeup and hair artists and created some of the best beauty hacks. But before now, the Latinx consumer hasn't been fully represented in the beauty space — whether it be in foundation shades or curly hair products — which is why entrepreneurs took it upon themselves to create new brands that speak directly to their specific needs and culture.
Now, the Latinx consumer is finally getting some much-needed time in the spotlight. From curly hair products to eyeshadow palettes, these are the Latinx-owned beauty brands you should support right now.

HANOI (Reuters) -U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin sought on Thursday to nudge forward security ties with Vietnam that have been slowly deepening as both countries watch China's activities in the South China Sea with growing alarm. Despite closer military relations, more than four decades after the Vietnam War ended in 1975, President Joe Biden's administration has said there are limits to the relationship until Hanoi makes progress on human rights. Vietnam has emerged as the most vocal opponent of China's territorial claims in the South China Sea and has received U.S. military hardware, including coastguard cutters.
