LEA LOVE

master lash artist

Lea Love (formerly LashBabe) is Founder, Owner + Master Lash Artist of Couture Lash. Lea first wants everyone to know that she loves Jesus! Second, that she is a Wilmington local! Even tho she has lived & traveled all over the world, she says nothing comes close in comparison to Wilmington & is happy to call this beautiful place home.

Her love for the beauty industry started at the age of 17 when she worked for Origins, an Esteé Lauder company, as a makeup artist. From there, she attended beauty school & attained both her Esthetics + Cosmetology license in 2004. After she graduated, she hit the road , moved to Los Angeles & then to Las Vegas to be mentored under top beauty professionals. In 2012, she moved back to Wilmington to cultivate her lash artistry skills + birthed LashBabe in 2017.

LashBabe then evolved into Couture Lash, Inc in 2019. Through her advanced training & experience over the years, she has created a unique, one of a kind online lash academy & has had multiple students from all over North Carolina take her course. These graduates have gone on to become successful lash artists & thrive in the lash industry! Lea’s meticulous attention to detail + symmetry makes her a highly sought after lash artist. Women drive & fly in from all over the east coast just to be able to get lash extensions from her. What starts out as a professional client relationship, always turns into a beautiful friendship & that is what she is most proud of.
