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.

Intricately woven gold speckled with authenticity-testing bite marks trims Victorian-style couches, upon which clients nip at complimentary beverages. Extremities wrapped around warm mugs or wading through luxurious carpet prepare for dips in oil, paraffin, and a warm lotion or cooling gel infused with sea salt, and beautifiers overhaul hair, nails, skin and bodies with opulent spa and salon treatments.
