Hispanic Heritage Month only lasts from mid-September to mid-October, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop supporting the Latinx community when it’s over. The Latinx community is flooded with various brands tailoring their products to your needs and VALLEY is here to highlight a few!
Lunar Beauty was created by beauty influencer Manuel Gutierrez—aka Manny Mua. New vegan formulas have allowed for Lunar beauty to create an array of products suitable for both men and women. “Our LB = symbol represents our support for ALL walks of life, doesn’t matter who you are, we love you,” according to Lunar Beauty’s website.
Vive Cosmetics is a Latina-owned and operated beauty brand founded by first-generation Latinas Joanna Rosario-Rocha and Leslie Valdivia. After seeing a lack of diversity and representation in the industry, Rosario-Rocha and Valdivia set to be the change the community needed.
