Latinas have really been making a name for themselves in the beauty world. In fact, there’s been an upstick in beauty brands owned by Latinxs. According to the 2016 States of Women-Owned Business Report, for every 10 women-owned businesses launched since 2007, eight were started by women of color. Latinas own close to 788,000 businesses in the U.S. This has inspired me to go out of my way to seek out, support, and purchase Latinx-owned beauty products to help put those dollars in our communities pockets.
