OMJ Blogger of the Month: YouTube and Instagram sensation Melissa Flores

Melissa Flores is our OMJ blogger of the month for September

When it comes to beauty tips, Melissa Flores of Super Glam News is complete goals. From her popular Youtube Channel which has 50,000 followers, to her impressive Instagram reach of 32,000 — Melissa is changing the way Jersey girls look at beauty. With her gorgeous dark hair, talented makeup skills and alluring smile, it’s easy to see why this Bergen County resident is slaying the makeup scene. That’s why we have named her our blogger of the month for September!

What was your inspiration behind Super Glam News?
I started my blog as a way of combining my love of writing and beauty. Today my inspiration are the readers. I love being able to create things that we all relate to as women whether it be personal or fun.

What are some of your favorite places to shop for beauty and fashion in New Jersey?
I love shopping online, but when I get a chance to head out, I love finding little boutiques that I know will carry pieces no one else has. Ridgewood has a ton of stylish little shops like Alba Boutique. If I go to the mall my favorite stores to stop by are Zara, Topshop and H&M. For beauty, you can often find me at Ulta in Maywood. The malls in Jersey are definitely the best and a quick trip to Garden State Plaza is a great work break.

What are some of your fall fashion must-haves?
Right now I’m obsessed with chokers, bomber jackets, and anything with a velvet or satin finish. I also love a great high-boot for the fall.

Obviously you love makeup, what are some of your key items for the season?
I’m all about a liquid lip. There are many brands I like — Anastasia and Dose of Color. And I love big lashes. For a false-lash look try IT Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara (a must-have for your beauty bag).

What do you enjoy most about being a beauty blogger and YouTube sensation?
What I love most about being a blogger is being able to connect with my followers every single day. The best feeling ever is when other girls reach out and tell me how relatable I am, or how one of my videos helped them out. I also love the relationships that I’ve formed through blogging, and the close friends that I’ve now made.

What’s your best advice to the Jersey girls out there looking to make it in this competitive world?
My advice for any girl who wants to start blogging is to not let the fear of the competitiveness get her down. If you truly love what you’re doing and you dedicate yourself to put in the work, there’s no way you won’t be successful.
