With fall on its way, not only are the leaves changing colors, but your autumn makeup is likely going to take on a smokier, more berry-focused palette.

Therefore, there’s no time like the present to get your moisturizing fall skincare products. As you clear away space on your makeup counter for your next haul, consider shopping some of the Latinx-owned beauty brands below. While Latinx Heritage Month only runs until Oct. 15, your support for these brands and more should carry over for far beyond that.
