However you say "money", make it a pay day for these Latinx creators
This was initially created for Latina Equal Pay Day but based on demand, I've expanded to non-binary & males as well.
Money = Power, and people of color have the buying power to drive the change we want to see.
Let's take action and support the household economy of a Latinx business owner or creator.
(If you're a Latinx-owned small business or creative that wants to get added, please email with the info below)

Reina Rebelde

Reina Rebelde was born out of a passion for makeup and extreme pride for my cultural identity as a Latina. Growing up in Mexico, my makeup obsession started with the telenovela “Rosa Salvaje” and sitting at my mother’s feet watching her beauty rituals as she would get ready to go out for the night with her girlfriends. I’ve been addicted to makeup ever since. Years of makeup hoarding later, my collection is equal parts wild and unpredictable, bold and impractical, feminine and luxurious, sexy and severe — in many ways perfectly reflective of my complicated identity as a Mexican woman embracing an amazing American existence.Regina Merson
