Modern and Traditional Fusion Inspired Shoot

Modern and Traditional Fusion Inspired Shoot

Beauty Bridal Canada Hairstyle Publication Publication style Wedding

One of our styled bridal photo shoots featuring fusion of western and traditional bridal makeup looks just got published in Calgary Bride Luxe magazine.

I often feel incredibly fortunate as a Canadian. Our county is a melting pot of cultures, traditions and identities, with people from all over the world bringing their heritage to our doorstep. Today’s Inspired Shoot from The Art of Beauty showcases a bride who embraces both her traditional culture and Western trends.

Many modern brides take pride, joy and pleasure in creating weddings that are a fusion of their heritage and modern Western wedding trends, with incredible fashions and meaningful traditions.

Here’s what Lyana Gibert from The Art of Beauty had to say about this shoot:

We took one model and created Korean traditional bridal makeup  for her with a little bit of face art design that uses patterns that are more western in nature (like a blend of west and east) and another look that is purely western in nature (classic white dress, some sparkling jewelleries and very natural makeup). The result of this editorial was exciting; the same model looked totally different. It was lots of fun for everybody participated.

Vancouver Halloween ideas – Sugar Skull

Vancouver Halloween ideas – Sugar Skull

art Beauty Creative Hairstyle Halloween makeup artist Publication Wedding

About a year ago we published post about history of Sugar skull look for Halloween.

This year I wanted to continue this subject from a little bit different angle. Everybody agree that Sugar skull makeup is very bright, cool and colourful look for Halloween. But why not to get inspiration from it for your wedding? I’ve got few clients this years who booked their wedding on October 31st and who wanted to use Halloween inspiration for their wedding day!

How cool would it be if whole bridal party (the bride, bridesmaids, the groom, best man and even mothers) would wear Sugar skull looks? Can you imagine what kind of photos would it be? What kind of memories will it keep?

I thought it is just great idea to make your wedding unique as shown at Calgary Bride publication.

That’s why I teamed up with amazing photographer Csaba Diglics and vintage store A Vintage Affair to do inspiration photo shoot for Calgary and Vancouver couples who had idea in mind of using Halloween makeup as inspiration for their wedding.

Sugar skull makeup is suitable not only for ladies but for men as well. Obviously it is going to be not as sparkly and much more minimalistic however it doesn’t mean it will look less interesting. Check out these pictures and decide for yourself.

Here it is! Gorgeous pictures featuring eastern bridal looks created by Lyana Gibert of The Art of Beauty are now featured at Calgary Bride online magazine.

Few cultures have weddings as extravagant as the people of Pakistan do. Not only are their weddings carried out over 4 days with lavish feasts and parties, (including the now very trendy henna (mehndi) party) but we also see some of the most beautiful and vibrant fashion, as well as unique styling for hair and makeup.

Lyana Gibert, a talented hair and makeup artist and owner of local bridal business, The Art of Beauty, teamed up with a local Pakistani designer Bushra Zarrar, owner of LaRegalia Couture, and together they styled up two models to give us a glimpse into the beauty and style, and culture of Pakistani weddings.

Weddings traditionally follow Islamic traditions. However, some ceremonies have a slight Hindu influence. Some of the customs include: Dholki (sing and dance with bride), Mehndi (henna party), Baraat (procession to the brides home), Nikah (contract ceremony), Mun Dikhai (the unveiling of the face), Rukhsati (sending off), Walima (marriage banquet), Shaadi (wedding ceremony), and Shab-i-Zifaf (the wedding night). The bride typically wears purple, pink, or red lehenga, gharara, or shalwar kameez that are greatly adorned in beads and gems. However, many brides now wear other bright colours aside from the original traditional colours as well. It is customary for the bride to wear much heavy gold jewelry, usually with large stones, (as a model, I can assure you this jewellery is even heavier than it looks! These brides are amazing). It takes many hands to get one bride dressed and ready properly, the dupatta must be secured in a certain way, the lehenga must be the right fit, the right colour, the henna must be painted properly, the bride must look the picture of perfection for her husband to be, especially for a ceremony like “the unveiling of the face.” The models Cathy and Theresa were a joy to work with. Lyana styled each one to match the dress she was wearing. With this cultural style, contouring and intense eye makeup is a must, it is essential as a bride that you hire a professional for such skill. The photos were taken at Crossroads Furniture Gallery utilizing their stunning array of home décor and furnishings. They were taken by the talented and humble Csaba Diglics, an amazing local wedding photographer. There’s also a behind the scenes video taken by videographer Oleksandr Nadoloshko.

Floral dresses for weddings are definitely on trend for 2015.  Bridesmaids in pretty pastel prints and bold blooms are popping up on wedding blogs left and right.  After the recent article by the Calgary Bridal Association, Tara decided to track down floral bridesmaid dresses that are available to ladies shopping here in Calgary.

Happy to see another bridal look that The Art of Beauty created published at the Calgary Bride online magazine.

March of this year a talented group of Calgary bridal vendors collaborated together to transform a wedding space in Priddis Alberta from ordinary to extraordinary. We transformed a small heritage homestead – barn at the base of luxury boutique hotel – Azuridge, into elegant complete with luxury and bright coloured spring florals, linens, silverware, menu cards, cake and our own beautiful bride!

For this photoset The Art of Beauty created unique flower-inspired hairstyle design complemented with bright and yet elegant makeup that might be great addition to any collection of perfect bridal look ideas you might have.

The Good Ol’ Days

The Good Ol’ Days

art Beauty Calgary Canada Creative Hairstyle makeup artist style Vendors review

Remember the days when women “stayed at home,” and did all the cooking, cleaning, never had a job or career, just stayed at home and raised the children: Women were all expected to be typical Stepford Wives. These images were depicted in famous works by many artists, most notably Norman Rockwell.
The inspiration for this pinup shoot came from the satirical (humorous) spin put on these images, for example the ones featured here:

retro poster

These inspired Lyana so much that she decided to collaborate with the best, locally, to recreate these images with her own added flare. Together with Csaba Diglics (photographer), A Vintage Affair (clothing), Just Cake Me (vintage cake) Oleksandr Nadoloshko (Videographer) and the stunning Summer Morgan of Sophia Models Int.(model), they recreated this funny, timeless beauty that every woman can relate to.

Lyana used her exceptional makeup and skill to transform Summer’s face into a porcelain perfect, image of a vintage house wife. Her hair was curled with a victory roll in the centre of her forehead… And from there the magic began.

As you can see, the images are absolutely pristine. This is the result of an amazing team working together, and naturally Csaba and Lyana’s amazing talents together.

Working with Csaba is such a pleasure. He’s well experienced in both the fashion and wedding industry, and his work speaks volumes about his talent. His pictures are truly breathtaking. His post production editing isn’t over exaggerated, it makes everyone look their absolute best (especially when teamed up with lyana’s perfectly styled hair and makeup). I have yet to see an image from Csaba that I don’t like, every single photo he takes is magical. (The ones he took of me are still some of my favourite). Not only is he professional but also very kind and has a sweet nature, he truly is a joy to work with. I highly recommend his talents.

Speaking of recommending talents, Lyana has put together a list of trusted professionals in the wedding industry available here: theartofbeauty.ca/calgary-wedding-vendors

And lastly behind the scenes Oleksandr caught some candid footage of how this magic actually takes place! Stay tuned for that!

I can’t express enough how in awe I am of this shoot. Lyana truly sees beauty in every aspect of the world and not only show cases it, but creates a masterpiece. Lyana truly is artist in every sense of the word. I look forward to the next inspirational beauty you have for us!
