SALYSÉ Magazine is a photography magazine, featuring beauty, fashion, and conceptual art editorials. We do not seek to define beauty with one narrow idea, but with myriad viewpoints Vintage is right next to emerging designers, who are right next to established designers. We are looking for creatives who push the envelope, take chances, and disregard the status quo. SALYSÉ Magazine is about sophistication, authenticity, with a touch of eccentricity. ---------FOLLOW LIKE SUBSCRIBE PURCHASE ---------Not just a magazine— a movement! © SALYSE, LLC All rights reserved.

Letter from the Editor Dear Salysians, What a year? We made it! We survived! Sixty Issues!! 60! Did you read all of them? Are you ready to begin a new year- a new chapter? What will the new year and the new volumes of SALYSÉ hold? As I drink my Honest Tea while putting the final touches on the largest issue that we have ever published, I peeled off the label to read: “Everything has beauty, but not everyone see it.” - Confucius Beauty? What is it? Who determines it? How does each person define it? Those are the questions that I continue to try to answer with every issue. And I hope to continue to answer with the new year. I am so thankful for today! I’m thankful for all of the amazing contributors who have entrusted me with their work and to show their BEAUTY to the world! What are you thankful for? Enjoy the “gifts” of the season! And know the most precious gift you can give someone is the gift of time! Enjoy the December issue! As always, I hope you enjoy your escape! Hugs and Love, Sonya Alyse Lawyer SALYSÉ, Founder and Editor in Chief

Meet Makeup Artist Christina Chen

Meet Model Alyssa Huerta

Hometown Taiwan

Hometown Tracy, California

How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. I’ve always loved drawing/painting growing up, especially portraiture. My love affair with the beauty industry started when my aunt, who is also a makeup artist, would come over and show us her Mary Kay skincare and makeup. After high school, I enrolled into my first official makeup and hair course in Taiwan, and from there I assisted and worked on my own until I graduated college. I attended another makeup school in Hollywood for special f/x, and got my esthetician’s license as well. I’ve been working as a full time makeup artist since then. It’s been 12 years since I officially started doing makeup and I strongly believe in continued education, so I choose different artists to learn from every year to keep my skills up to date.

How did you get started modeling? Tell us about yourself. I started modeling when I was 4 years old for Storybook Heirlooms, a girl’s clothing magazine. I have been modeling on and off ever since and it has just been something that I always find my way back to!

Three adjectives to describe yourself. Happy.

Three adjectives to describe yourself. Playful, Loving, & Hard-working What do you enjoy the most about modeling? What I enjoy the most about modeling is meeting new people and all the networking opportunities. You get to work with so many makeup artists, photographers, and fellow models all of which make for a good connection down the road and you get to learn some tricks of the trade! Favorite color? Green

What do you enjoy the most about being a HMUA? The people I get to meet.

Favorite food? Mexican Food

What do you not enjoy about being a HMUA? The early am wake-up times.

What designer would you love to model/walk for? Why? Alexander Wang, I own some of his pieces and just love his vibe!

Other than yourself, favorite make up artist? Why? Agh, too many! Favorite color? Blue. If you could have anyone be your mentor in the industry, who would it be? Pat McGrath

Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? I would love to go to Bora Bora and just chill in an overwater bungalow! Your zodiac sign? Capricorn

Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? Bora Bora!

What do you do when you are not modeling? I love to do yoga, hang out with my dog, and try out different restaurants.

What make up trend do you love? Dewy skin

Favorite movie? Grease

What hair trend do you love? Cotton candy hair

Favorite actor/actress? Leonardo DiCaprio

Last show you binge-watched? Stranger Things 2

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would like to learn to play the drums or piano.

Meet Fashion Stylist Angelica Garde Hometown San Lorenzo, California

Your zodiac sign? Taurus babe.

How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. Back in 2006, I was attending FIDM and had an internship with a local record label in SF. I ended up blending both the music and fashion worlds together by wardrobe styling for the record label’s artists. Since then, I’ve been freelancing as a wardrobe stylist and have had worked published nationally. Met my husband, Brian, through wardrobe styling as he was a freelance stylist back then, too.

What zodiac sign do you get along with the most? I’ve noticed I tend to pair well with fellow earth signs: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

Three adjectives to describe yourself: Resourceful, Motivated, Genuine What do you enjoy the most about being a fashion stylist? The Hunt! Always on the lookout for unique items. Love thrifting and vintage/consignment shops. What do you not enjoy about being a fashion stylist? Being a pack mule. On-location shoots are fantastic, but all the lugging around of garment bags from one location to the next sure isn’t.

What’s your favorite quote? “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anaïs Nin Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? Morocco. What’s your theme song? Quantic & Alice Russell’s cover of “I’ll Keep My Light in My Window”. What fashion trend do you love? Wide leg trousers. Guilty Pleasure? I am in my mid-30s and still play video games.

Favorite designer? Why? Maria Cornejo for her sleek and chic silhouettes.

Last show you binge-watched? Stranger Things.

Favorite color? Marigold.

Last book you read? Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher.

Favorite food/drink? I love noodles. Whiskey on the rocks, please.

Anything else you want the readers to know about you. Self-proclaimed geek chic. Also, it’s not always about the label…it’s how you rock it.

What person, living or dead, would you love to style for? What would you do? Would have loved to style Aaliyah. She always had the cool mix of street chic. Speak it into existence, where do you see yourself in 5 years? Still being involved in music and fashion but having the two worlds blend together more seamlessly than it does now. Being a Music Supervisor for brands/designers. Or being part of the glam squad for a musician/artist whose music I really enjoy.

What was the last picture you took with your phone? Sunset over the ocean
