·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.
