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.

Pleased to share such a wonderful feedback from Sharon Flores. She reviewed and provided her opinion on a set of bridal vintage looks we created and captured this season together with Csaba Diglics and A Vintage Affair.

They say that a girl starts planning her wedding around the time she is five years old. If that is true, then the average twenty five year old woman has probably had twenty odd years to dream about how she would like her wedding to be. And for the bride, one of the most important parts of the wedding day is how she looks.

These days, there are several ways to style a bride’s look. Some popular ones are the modern look, or the princess style look, or even the retro look. They are all quirky and fun, each in their own way. But there remains one style that has captured the hearts of brides in every part of this world. That is the vintage look. When done right, this famous style is elegant, classy, and breathtaking. Undoubtedly, this has to be achieved by an artist who is a master at the art.

Here is where Lyana Gibert, this talented and extremely creative Calgary makeup artist fits into the picture. Renowned for classy and breathtaking makeovers that can transform the most ordinary of faces into the extraordinary; this makeup artist has an impressive portfolio that can be accessed on the website.

Lyana Gibert is a professional freelance makeup artist and hairstylist. Her work is predominantly based in Calgary, Canada. However, she is a dream come true for brides who aren’t based in Calgary too, as she is open to extending her luxury service packages to clients on location.

Moving on to what she specializes in, this Calgary makeup artist is a magician when it comes to wielding the makeup brushes for a wedding. In particular, she works wonders with her vintage wedding style. So if you are a little girl who once dreamed of having a wedding that will take you back in time, to the places where life was slower and sweeter, and that dreams is still alive in your heart, you have got to try her vintage wedding makeup style. With elegance and simplicity, she manages to craft out the most beautiful techniques on the human skin. Her luxury makeup is truly a treat to the eyes. As for the vintage makeup that this Calgary artist concocts, you will have to see it to believe it. It is almost, as if the days gone by are recaptured on the face of the bride like a beautiful moment frozen in time.

I had no stabbing hair pins, and my hair stayed still for over 9hrs. (I have incredibly thick, long hair, and It was swept into an updo, as seen below) We had the styling perfect for our “Great Gatsby” (or Downton Abbey) themed photo shoot, so we gathered our things and we headed to the photographer, Csaba Diglics studio for the photo shoot.

The shots we got were priceless. He was wonderful to work with and we flew through the shoot with ease. Here’s a couple behind the scenes of Csaba and I:
