POPSUGAR: 8 Latina-Owned Vegan Beauty Brands You Need to Know

Across the country, Latinas are creating their own face paint brands. Even better, many of these small — and medium — sized companies are vegan, meaning their products don't use any animal components (like carmine, beeswax, or honey), and are cruelty-free, meaning the formulas aren't tested on animals, either.

Keep reading to browse through some vegan makeup and lacquer brands by Latinas and treat yourself to something you won't regret this summer.
