Salinas first obtained international recognition in the telenovela "Esmeralda" alongside Leticia Calderon, as the damsel in distress Graciela.

In Rosalinda, Salinas portrayed a cruel and ambitious woman who makes the lead character, Rosalinda (Thalia) suffer. As a new twist in her career, veering away from her villainous and often mature roles, Salinas joined the telenovela for children, "Carita de Angel". In "Carita de Angel" Salinas gave life to the character of Tia Pelucas. Salinas showcased her comic side in "Carita de Angel" and was identified with the characters various wig color changes.

Her more recent important work is Fuego en la Sangre, where she portrayed the role of the conservative Sarita, who eventually discovers true love from a man who happens to be her family's mortal enemy.
