Calgary Bridal Expo

Calgary Bridal Expo

Beauty Bridal Creative

This past Sunday, September 14, 2014, was the big Calgary Bridal Expo http://www.facebook.com/CalgaryBridalExpo at the BMO Centre. I was privileged enough to come along with Lyana Gibert, local Calgary Makeup Artist, and be her model for the show and represent THE ART OF BEAUTY Lyana and I got together at her place for hair and makeup before the show. We started bright and early at 7am. I had a lovely hairstyle, it was swept to the side and pinned in such a way that allowed my hair to cascade down my right side in long curls. My makeup was a gorgeous, bridal makeup. This style (romantic and warm, with pink champagne eyes and soft pink lips) is a common look for a lot of brides so that is what we showcased. Lyana did a more natural “day look” on herself, focusing on the eyes using wings, and swept her hair up. We all met up at the tradeshow and got to work for the day. I was the walking, talking model, telling everyone exactly why they need to invest in a proper makeup artist for their big day. And I’m going to tell you all exactly what I told them. ” Your wedding is the ONE day, everything is about you. The ONE day. Cameras follow you like paparazzi, you are certain someone will get a bad photo of you at some point… but… When your hair and makeup is done properly, and I mean PROPERLY (set, contoured, powdered ) your face should reflect the light in all the right areas to ensure you take a flawless picture every time. Do you want to be the “Bride on a dime,” or do you want to be the bride that has the wedding of a lifetime? You get what you pay for my darlings, so when it comes to your wedding, please spare no expense. Lyana specializes in luxury makeup, bridal makeup, by using her you are guaranteed to look your absolute best on your special day. We had two live demonstrations at the show. We pulled the name of an upcoming bride called CJ and did her makeup for her. And we had another model come to sit and have a demo of hair and makeup on her. Our other model was Olga Bronetskaya, who came straight from Russia to help us out today. Also, the dress I was provided to wear came from Russia as well. Check out her makeover below:

Calgary bridal expo 2015

We were so honoured to be featured in the same show that boasts some of the most prestigious bridal supplies and service providers here in Calgary. The show had a great attendance, I don’t believe in the entire 7 hours we were there that we had a dull or spare moment. We also encouraged others to take note of two people/organizations that contribute on a regular basis to the stunning work Lyana does here at THE ART OF BEAUTY. The two we credited were CSABA DIGLICS PHOTOGRAPHY, http://www.facebook.com/csaba.diglics who does all the photos for Lyana. And A VINTAGE AFFAIR, http://www.facebook.com/AVintageAffairCalgary who provide her with gorgeous outfits and accessories to accent the photo shoots and make the perfect picture. (and that I get to model! woohoo!) (And am also modeling in the very top image) All in all the show was a great success. Stay tuned for our upcoming adventures! Here’s a pic of the whole team, Lyana, and the two models, myself and Olga.
