Helping Targets of Bullying regain their sense of ‘self’ and enhance their positive power.

Dalyn Sjogren – Daysdream Makeovers

Feel Confident, Youthful, Beautiful, and Divinely Feminine

Dalyn is a Certified Professional Facial and Makeup Artist able to combine her skills as a Reiki Practitioner for those who need pampering and support.

After a lifetime of being a target of bullying and traumatic experiences, life changing events sent her down a much different path and Dalyn came to realize that our health and happiness is vitally important and a journey of healing and pursuing desires was paramount.

Dalyn had a passion for beauty and wellness when in her teens. She started doing skin care consultations, makeovers, and bridal makeup in 1988, but yet lacked confidence to follow her dreams. Instead, she did the “right” thing (by societal standards) and went into secretarial work. This lead Dalyn to becoming a Human Resources Professional for 15 years. During 10 of those years she developed her skills building her own “HR, Training & Coaching Business” while working in the Agriculture industry.


In 2014 Dalyn started the journey of pursuing her desires and took the Makeup Artistry program at Artists Within based in Calgary, Alberta, becoming a Certified ITEC Makeup Artist.


Dalyn is deeply passionate about helping women feel confident, youthful, beautiful, and divinely feminine, which she believes all women should have the opportunity to feel. She understands the importance of women feeling confident, understanding their desires, and believing they can achieve their dreams.  Daysdream Makeovers helps women build their confidence by providing them with an Inside Out Makeover.

The Inside Out Makeover, depending on the client’s interest and desires, can involve channeling and releasing negative energy through Reiki, sharing experiences and the impact they have had on confidence, providing advice, connecting the client with healing practitioners and women’s support networks, and a complete Facial and Makeover for any event.  With the end goal of helping women feel confident, youthful and beautiful, ultimately Divinely Feminine.


Dalyn facilitates an Empowering Women Network Circle and is an associate with the Alberta Bullying Research, Resources, & Recovery Centre (abrc.ca).  Dalyn is also pursuing opportunities to volunteer with various cancer associations to help Women Living with Cancer.
