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.

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.

FUTURE BRIDES!!!!

Is it almost your special day? And you want everything to be perfect right? The dress, the photos, the venue, the flowers, the cake. A lot of people forget to put trust into professionals for the actual styling of the bride. And this is where I can help you. The average wedding costs $ 10-100,000. These are typically stressful days for you beautiful ladies, so why not guarantee yourself no stress by going to see the best talent Calgary has to offer? Some of you may already know me as local model and writer, Carolynne Scoffield. I have teamed up with Lyana Gibert here at her site, The Art Of Beauty, to spread the word of her amazing skills to Calgary and area. In this case, specifically to upcoming Calgary brides. Lyana and myself  (I’ll be modelling) will be at Bridal Expo, this coming Sunday, September 14, 2014 to showcase her work. We are giving away some amazing prizes so be sure to come find us. For more information on Bridal Expo check out: http://bridalexpo.ca/2014/ So, you may wonder, Why am I recommending that you use Lyana instead of someone else? Lyana has years of experience in both hair styling and makeup artistry. On top of her experience in her home country of Russia, where she spent 5 years studying Visual Art and became a professional artist, she is also certified as a makeup artist and hairstylist by the Artists Within Makeup Academy (Calgary, AB).  Lyana brings a variety of skills to her work, a one of a kind flare to her style combined with her culture and unique vision will guarantee you will look stunning and are the centre of everyone’s attention. She insists on perfection and achieves nothing less. A wedding is the one day brides should feel and look their absolute best. To look your best it does cost a bit, but it’s not unaffordable, and the results are priceless. The makeup and styling done on you, I assure you, will not move throughout the day, you can be ready at 10am and still look the same at 10am the next morning.

Lyana ensures all makeup is sealed on the face and using nothing but the most highly recommended products (MAC,{http://www.maccosmetics.com/index.tmpl?LOCALE=en_CAindex.tmpl}  Makeup Forever {http://www.makeupforever.com/}, NARS {http://www.narscosmetics.com/}, L’Occitane  (http://ca.loccitane.com/) for skin care (these are amazing and extremely expensive) and for hair she uses Kevin Murphy {http://kevinmurphy.com.au/}, OSiS+ {http://www.schwarzkopf-professional.com/skp/com/en/home.html}, Matrix Pro{http://www.matrix.com/}, as well as some designer products from Russia. I went to Lyana’s for makeup, however, she usually goes to clients to do their makeup wherever they feel comfortable. She was very gentle yet fast and efficient. 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. I stopped on the way for a coffee and was greeted by several compliments from strangers on my makeup and hair! Once at the studio we got to work with Csaba. Csaba does BEAUTIFUL photos. 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:
