4 Latina R29ers Share The Beauty Products They’re Loving Now

There's no putting Latinas in a box. After all, with a diverse and storied cultural history that spans the globe, how could you? And when it comes to beauty, Latinas glow with a sense of pride that even the best highlighter can't mimic. However, that doesn't mean Latinas aren't down to spend their coins on highlighters — or any must-have beauty product. So much so, as a group, Latinas are a spending powerhouse.

So what are we buying? To find out, we asked Latina R29 staffers to curate their top picks from their beauty stash. They're spilling the tea café, ahead.

"To me, Latina beauty means being unapologetic of who I am and how I was raised. As a Latina, I feel that there is nothing that I can’t handle. I love feeling empowered through a bold lip or radiant skin." — Carolyn Garcia, Refinery29 Recruiting Coordinator

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter


"I never have the energy to do a full beat during the week, but I still like for my skin to look alive. This glow booster is my go-to for daily wear. Sometimes I’ll use it as a primer — especially when I’m using a matte foundation and want more glow around the cheek area — but most days, I use it as a soft illuminator. I love that it's lightweight and easily blendable with just my fingertips."

Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio


"Leave it to a fellow Latina to create blush tones that work for my undertones. Each of these buildable shades has something different to offer, but they all look so good on. I also appreciate that there's a shade name in Spanish ("Candela," or candle), which makes the palette extra special."

iS Clinical Extreme Protect SPF 30


"After years of mi mami reminding me constantly to wear sunscreen, I just recently committed to wearing sun protection daily. It took me forever because I've always feared breaking out or having a white cast left on my face. That was until this SPF 30 formula made it easy: not only does it replace my daily moisturizer, but it's lightweight and soaks right in."
