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.

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.

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.
