Amanda Flores Beauty Director
Amanda Flores is the beauty director at Latina. As a self-proclaimed beauty junkie, there isn’t a product that comes into her office that she doesn’t road test. Her love of everything beauty started at a young age when her mother started selling Mary Kay cosmetics and Amanda couldn’t resist breaking into the pink boxes to swipe on the latest shade of lipstick or shadow.
Before starting at Latina, Amanda worked in the beauty departments at Family Circle, Woman’s World and—the place where her love of beauty journalism began — Redbook, where she worked as an intern while studying at NYU.
