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:

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.

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:
