Sparkle and shine – Vancouver makeup artist

Sparkle and shine – Vancouver makeup artist

Beauty Creation

It was an early day in September and an unadorned face walked into a studio ready for anything.

Vancouver makeup artist Lyana Gibert was waiting and prepping her materials for a creative concept that she had envisioned.   Her vision?  An explosion of gleaming glitter to decorate the bare model.

The creative process started with some simplistic and elegant makeup.  The kind of makeup that makes you look like you aren’t wearing makeup, but somehow your eyes seem brighter, your lips plumper and your skin clearer.

Sparkly look- Vancouver makeup artist

Lyana Gibert’s talent with makeup is incredible.  She is a transformative genius, with fresh creative ideas for each shoot.

So here we are, at the inventive part for the final step in the make up process.

Lyana Gibert got her model to lie on a sheet-covered floor and then gently proceeded to paint glue over the models face, neck and chest.   Once she was lightly covered and desirably sticky, Vancouver makeup artist Lyana sprinkled the sparkles all over the models face, neck and chest.  The result was a shimmering and glistening effect that illuminated and changed with light and movement.

Lighting this kind of creation was a little tricky as even the slightest angle, brightness and movement produced a change in appearance of the sparkle-coated model.  Direct light illuminated the sparkles to be a vibrant and shinning gold hue.  When the light wasn’t direct by hit from an angel the sparkles turned either a warm soft hue of pink, light red and orange or a cold, though still shiny, hue of green, teal or light blue.  The effect was a lustrous concoction of coloration.

The final product produced a glistening and vibrant multi toned rainbow portrait.  Calgary and Vancouver make up artist Lyana Gibert conceived and thencreated an illuminating piece of work that is timeless in it’s creativity and imaginativeness.

And so that was a wrap and as the day ended and the image was captured.  As everyone separated the sparkles fell silently, softly on the ground marking a flickering path where it’s host journeyed.  Nothing lasts forever, but as that image deteriorated a new one will be born.

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.

Why a Sugar Skull

Why a Sugar Skull

art Beauty Calgary Creative Hairstyle Halloween makeup artist seasonal style

Everyone is in love with the Sugar Skull makeup craze. But where did it all begin? What exactly is a Sugar Skull? And where can you go to get one done on your face PERFECTLY for Halloween here in Calgary?

Most of us know that Sugar Skulls are associated with the Mexican festival the Day of the Dead (Festival De Muertes) but few know what they represent or how they came to be in the new world.

Sugar art was brought to Mexico by Italian missionaries back in the 17th century. Sugar Skulls are actual sculptures of sugar in the shape of a skull. They come in different sizes, colours, and are adorned in glittered confectionery accoutrements. They are edible and sometimes are consumed, but that is not why they are in high demand the month of October, prior to the Festival of the Dead.

It is believed, that at midnight, October 31st, the gates to heaven and hell open and the souls of loved ones lost may reconcile with their families. More specifically, the first night (Nov 1st) the souls of children (Angelitas) are released, the second night ( Nov 2nd) adult souls are released. Small sugar skulls adorn the graves and ofrendas along with toys and candy, food and flowers for the young children spirits. For adults, larger sugar skulls, alcohol, food and flowers are placed on the graves and ofrendas (altars). The holiday is becoming rapidly adapted by North Americans, perhaps because we typically don’t have an occasion to honour the dead except for funerals.

The past couple years Sugar Skull makeup has become the most sought after design in the October months. If you’re anything like myself the chances you have to pull this look off alone are slim to none.

Where can you go to get an amazing Sugar Skull in time for your Halloween event here in the Calgary area? Local Calgary Makeup Artist Lyana Gibert will come to you. If you want to look picture perfect, a Sugar Skull is not something you want to attempt yourself. Please trust in the skilled hands of a professional and I assure you you’ll have photos and happy memories to last a lifetime.

Featured in the photos is the lovely Mycah who I have had the pleasure of walking several catwalks alongside. Here Lyana did a 3.5hr application of makeup, using a combination of airbrushing (to make the nice white base) and hand painted detail, and fixed 120 individual Swarovski crystals on Mycahs face. Anyone who has seen swarovski crystals knows they are so much more than just a stick on glitter. They are not plastic, they are actual gem stones. The face paint used is Kryolan(http://us.kryolan.com), for those of you who didnt know, it’s one of the top face paint products available.

By using the best, you can assure that you will look stunning on your big night out. Once everything is applied you have a beautiful glow, every photo taken will be perfect, and no matter how much you dance your face will stay in place. If you want to stand out from the crowd this Halloween, I suggest you schedule an appointment with Lyana.

For bookings for this Halloween Lyana is offering stunning makeup applications starting at only $200. You can have this exact look (Sugar Skull) for $350+ crystals. Keep in mind all the products used on you are top of the line, L’Occitane cream,(http://ca.loccitane.com), MAC (www.maccosmetics.ca), Makeup Forever (www.makeupforever.ca), etc. The crystals are from Swarovski (http://www.swarovski.com)

Whether you’re doing photos, an event, or both, this Haloween, I suggest you book with Lyana to ensure you look your very best.

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:
