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 https://instagram.com/salysemagazine/ LIKE https://www.facebook.com/salysemagazine SUBSCRIBE http://issuu.com/salysemagazine PURCHASE http://www.magcloud.com ---------Not just a magazine— a movement!

Meet Make Up Artist Yanick-Nikita Lunford How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. Hello! My name is Yanick-Nikita, also known as BeautiiQueenYaniiArtistry. I have always loved makeup since I was a little girl watching my mother do her makeup and wanting so bad to be able to do my own makeup. Once I got older and was able to purchase my own makeup, friends of mine started asking me to do their makeup and it was then that I knew that I wanted to be in the beauty industry, but I didn’t start taking it seriously until 2012. I started off doing beauty parties, and makeup for friends and family, until I developed a steady client base and started doing weddings, photo shoots, fashion shows and more.

I also really love the people I get to meet and the opportunities I’ve had the pleasure of being apart of. What do you not enjoy about being a MUA? The beauty industry can be so amazing to work in but very frustrating at times as well.

Meet Model Kristina How did you get started modeling? Tell us about yourself. I started modeling around my second semester in college. People I knew and even strangers on the street would often tell me that I should model. One day I just decided to go for it. It was way out of my comfort zone. I submitted to an online casting call and an agent replied....told me to come meet in New York. I got signed to her agency and the rest was history. I was published in Jet Magazine, Hype Hair Magazine, Today’s Black Woman Magazine, and have been the face of a few national hair ad campaigns and more. Three adjectives to describe yourself. Creative, Loving, Blessed What do you enjoy the most about modeling? What I enjoy the most about modeling is that we get to change and take on new personas and moods when it comes to hair, makeup, clothes, art direction etc. It’s like we are going into character on set. It really excites me! What do you not enjoy about modeling? What I hate most about modeling is the industry “standards” that body shames, skin shames, and makes us sometimes feels as if we aren’t good enough. Favorite color? My FAVORITE color is PINK Favorite food? My favorite food is Buffalo wings and they have to be spicy! What designer would you love to model/walk for? Why? I would love to work with Jeffrey Campbell, I love his unique shoe designs! I have owned a few pairs.

My favorite super hero would have to be the Flash, only because I’m really into the show. What person, living or dead, do you admire the most? Why? The older women in my life (my mom and two older sisters) are who I admire the most. I admire them for their strength, determination, and ability to get things done even in tough situations. What’s your favorite quote? “I can do All things through Christ who strengthens me.” What is your favorite body part? My favorite body part are my beauty marks. What do you do when you are not modeling? When I’m not modeling I love creating! I love taking nothing and turning it in to something. So I do alot of DIYS and I love decorating for parties and events.

Favorite movie? Don’t laugh but I love me some White Chicks lol. I have other favorite movies but this one makes me laugh every single time, and I love to laugh! Favorite actor/actress? Taraji P. Henson/ Omari Hardwick Your idea of “happiness” and/or your idea of “misery”. My idea of happiness would be to live life to its fullest potential! Travel the world and experience what life has to offer, stay close with my family, and own my own successful business. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Paint realistic portraits Guilty Pleasure? My guilty pleasure is Spicy food and chocolate...yummy! Last show you binge-watched? I don’t really want to say lol, but Love and Hip Hop.
