    Lucerito's career began in 1980. When she was young, Lucerito always had concerns about being an artist, but at aged 10 Televisa offered her the opportunity to appear in a juvenile theme program named Alegrías De Mediodía (Midday Happiness), next to several children and young talents in music and comedy, like Aida Pierce and Aleks Syntek. She combined work with academic studies, also taking singing and dancing lessons. At that time she also performed in the program Juguemos a Cantar (Let's play to sing), in which she was the interpreter of the theme. Following these opportunities, she received several offers in different programs, among them Chiquilladas (Childishness), making her first starring appearance in the series for children, where one of her more popular roles was in a Popeye skit as Olive Oyl.

    In 1982, she starred her first telenovela, produced by Valentín Pimpstein, Chispita ("Little Spark"), alternating with great actors such as Enrique Lizalde, Angélica Aragón, among others. Her acting brought her 2 awards, her first TVyNovelas Award and Azteca de Oro Award. From that moment her career was seen as a promising future; curiously enough with the emergence of Lucerito as a singer, she did not record the theme song for this telenovela. Instead that task was given to Timbiriche, the most popular juvenile group in Mexico. This is how Raúl Velasco invited her to conduct and interpret the main theme of the musical pageant América, Esta Es Tu Canción. Still in 1982, Lucero released her first album, with Musart Records, Te Prometo (Eng: I promise you), later renamed just Él (Eng: Him).

    In 1983, she was hired by Daniel Galindo for her first film called Coqueta (Coquette), which she shared credit with Pedrito Fernández, making her big screen debut.

    After almost two years, in 1984, Lucerito released her second album named Con tan pocos años. In this year, she was contacted again by the director Sergio Vejar to act in the movie Delincuente (Delinquent), since the film Coqueta was a big success in Mexico and Central and South America.

    The following year, 1985, she was contacted to perform in her third film Fiebre de Amor (Eng: Love Fever) along with one of the most sought-after male singer of the decade, Luis Miguel. This combination was a complete success with the audience and the film received two Diosa de la Plata Awards, including Breakthrough Performance for Lucerito. She participated in the soundtrack with two songs, and due to the favourable outcome of the film, the soundtrack also had a special edition for Italy.

    In this same year, at the suggestion of her mother, Lucerito left her mentor from the first two albums, Sergio Andrade, as the gossip began to grow that he had fallen in love with her. To avoid problems, the music company decided to release another album, but this time without the guidance of Sergio Andrade. Instead she was provided with different producers and composers, among them Joan Sebastian and Jaime Sánchez Rosaldo. The album was titled Fuego y Ternura (Eng: Fire and Tenderness) later known as Magia; the album managed good sales in Mexico and United States, reaching platinum status in Mexico. For this album she achieved two recognitions for Best Singer, TVyNovelas Award and El Heraldo Award. This album was a change in style, opting for more teen-oriented pop music. With this record, she gained her first real hit with Fuego y Ternura, written by the singer/songwriter Prisma. During this year, Lucerito was hired by Adventure Kingdom to perform two songs for the whale Keiko in a single called "Keiko". To make matters better, she was hired by PepsiCo International; in 1985 Pepsico found in Lucerito the most recognized youth image, so they chose her to be the spokesperson for their drink Mirinda. The focus of this campaign was only for Mexico. She made a special appearance in one episode of the series Mujer, Casos de la Vida Real.

    In 1986, she recorded Un Pedacito De Mí (Eng: A little piece of me), her fourth and last album with Musart Records. In order to get away from the shadow of Sergio Andrade's management, she signed to Melody Records the same year. Due to the departure of the singer to another company, Musart did not promote this album, which resulted with sales lower than her previous albums. Her single "Era la primera vez" (Eng: It was the first time), was a hit in Mexican charts reaching the top 10 and the top 20 in Billboard. During the year she was also cast in her first theatre credit, in the play Don Juan Tenorio, where she played the character of Doña Inés de Ulloa.

    In 1987, Lucerito was offered her fourth film part with the director René Cardona Jr.. The movie was known as Escápate Conmigo (Eng: Escape with me). She acted next to her now ex-husband, but then friend Manuel Mijares and the comedian Jorge Ortiz de Pinedo. The film enjoyed moderate success, and due to this Melody Records released the soundtrack as Escápate Conmigo. Of note is that although Mijares was a well-known singer, he was not involved in the recording of any new song for the album. This production was the first one with Melody Records, as a prelude to her next album.

    In 1988 she released Lucerito (later re-released as Ocho Quince), her first Melody Records album. The album was a huge success and brought her to the realms of Mexican pop music where she now competed with teen pop acts at the time such as Timbiriche, Sasha Sokol, Luis Miguel, Tatiana, Chayanne, Karina and Flans. From this album she released several tracks, and the songs "Millones mejor que tú" (Eng: Millions better than you), "Vete con ella" (Eng: Go away with her) and "Tu amiga fiel" (Eng: Your faithful friend) established her as a solid pop singer. The album achieved substantial sales in Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Venezuela, Guatemala and the USA, which Lucero later visited to promote her album. Sales in Mexico reach the gold status. The album gave her a Galardón a los Grandes award for Best Singer. During this year, she decided to star in her fifth film, Quisiera Ser Hombre (Eng: I wish I were a man), starring next to Eduardo Capetillo and Carlos Riquelme. Critics thought this film helped indirectly to create tolerance towards homosexuality and transvestism in teenagers.

    Ending the decade, Lucero had already established herself as one of the best singers in Latin America and the United States. 1989 brought major changes in the life of the young singer. Her voice was no longer a girl's, and her figure had been transformed into that of a beautiful woman, and now without diminutive, she became Lucero. Lucero continues her ascent in her career, now releasing her sixth studio album Cuéntame. The sales of the album reached gold and platinum status in Mexico. This album opened the U.S. market, Spain, also across borders in Central America, in countries like Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama and all South America. The title single achieved great success, becoming a number 1 hit in Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Guatemala among other countries. The same song was included in VH1 list "Best 100 Songs of the '80s in Spanish". This disc was the last album she released under the name Lucerito. During this year, Procter & Gamble saw in Lucero one of the most famous and best cared-for hair styles and hired her to be the central image of the Head & Shoulders shampoo campaign for Latin America.
