Love Beauty Art relocated to Los Angeles in 2007 and the results speak for themselves. Their work has since been featured in Essence and Angeleno magazines. In addition, they have rouged the cheeks of such celebrity faces as Emma Roberts and Ke$ha, and have been an independent consultant for LA Fashion Week, the Emmy Awards, and even the Oscars. Drawing from this experience, Love Beauty Art is a place where all can seek expertise for makeup and voluminous lash extensions. Clients can opt for individual silk or mink eyelashes that are attached to individual lash strands using a medical grade adhesive. Lashes require maintenance about every 3-5 weeks and can be catered to individual customizations such as varying length, thickness, and curl.
Makeup artist Vincent Ford has always found himself drawn to shapes, textures, and colors, from the pale green of a budding spring bloom to the intricate pink argyle of a skyscraper's façade. Ford funnels his aesthetic inspirations into makeup applications customized for weddings and headshots as well as TV and film appearances. A careful application of faux-mink or ethically collected Siberian-mink eyelash extensions dramatically defines peepers; makeup lessons cover a range of topics that includes getting acquainted with the basic tools of the trade, and learning to use airbrush equipment to enhance brides' complexions or pinstripe their foreheads on the big day.
Ford says he has the most fun on the job when applying makeup for print images, which present the challenge of making a 2-D image pop with color and emotion. His beauty blog is a wellspring of everyday tips and celebrity makeup tricks.:m]]
