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.

Favorite Latina fashionista: Selena Gomez, she keeps it classy while still hitting all the top trends.

The Latino celeb I'd want to be best friends with: Salma Hayek, a humanitarian, businesswoman and a true beauty.

My first celebrity crush: Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing. Could he be more adorable??

My Latina Role Model: Sonya Sotomayor — proving to young girls everywhere that no dream is too big and all things are possible.

Fun Memory from My First Day at Latina: I had a wardrobe malfunction on my way to the office — I guess I hulked out and a button popped off the back of my shirt — so I had to wear a safety pin to hold it together for the rest of the day. Oops.

If I met Jennifer Lopez, I would: ask her to teach me some of her killer dance moves

Movie that makes me cry: Up (Pixar) gets me from the first scene every time.

Favorite Interview with a Latino Celeb: Shakira on her love of creating fragrances that make women feel sexy.

Favorite Latin dish: Sancocho
