Weddings

Eliza Desch creates gorgeous wedding makeup and hair for you and your entire bridal party.  Whether your style is natural or glamorous, she’ll work closely with you to make sure you look and feel amazing. Eliza and her talented team provide one-stop, on-location wedding makeup and hair, so you (and your bridesmaids, your flower girl, your mom…) can be relaxed, beautiful and wedding-ready.

 

The most important reasons to hire a professional hair and makeup artist for your wedding:

Wedding hair and makeup are unique.  They need to photograph beautifully, look naturally flawless in person, and last through tears, kisses and all-night dancing. Your wedding is one of the rare occasions you’ll spend as the center of your family and friends, and photos will capture it for a lifetime. You deserve to look like the very best version of yourself.  

Getting ready for one of the most special days of your life should also be one of the best memories of your life. It's a unique opportunity to relax with your bridal party, not worry about getting to a salon or makeup counter.  Our on-location team of reliable professionals ensure your look is stunning, and your experience is calm, indulgent, and of course, fun!

A professional hair and makeup artist has years of experience and knowledge of the best products and techniques for every member of the wedding party, from the flower girl to the grandmother. We are constantly investing in training to enhance and update our skills, as well as products and tools that really perform.

Not to mention that attention to detail goes beyond flawless hair and makeup. Did someone forget earrings? Can’t reach a button? No one’s going down the aisle anything less than 100 percent fabulous on Eliza’s watch.

Wedding FAQs

What do you need to reserve my date?

A signed contract and 33% initial payment. The payment is non-refundable, but will be credited towards your final balance.

 

Will you hold my date until after I do a trial?

Sorry, dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis, and cannot be held without a contract and payment.

 

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, ACH payments, personal checks, and credit cards.  The balance is due in full one month prior to the wedding date. If the bridal party is paying for their own services, please have them pay you, as I accept only one payment from the client.

 

Does pricing include gratuity?

No. We are sincerely thrilled when clients are happy with our work! Tips are an appreciated reflection of that, but are never added to pricing up front.

 

I have a large bridal party.  How many people can you take care of?

I bring additional artists with me based on your time frame and the number of services you need. There is no charge to you for additional artists other than their mileage, parking and any other incidentals.

 

Do you charge a travel fee?

The first 30 miles (RT) and 2 hours of roundtrip travel are included. Beyond that, a travel fee of $100/hour and mileage fee of $1.00 per mile applies.  For locations more than  2 hours away (one way), overnight accommodations may be required.

 

I need to start hair and makeup services at 6:00 a.m. in order to be ready on time.  Can you accommodate early hours?

We will arrive whenever necessary to have you ready for your wedding; however, a $100 early-arrival fee (per artist) applies to start times prior to 8:00 a.m.

 

What kind of makeup do you use?

I use wide variety of products designed to be long-lasting, photo-ready, and waterproof.  I constantly update my kit with the latest products and best finds from professional beauty supply stores in L.A. and industry trade shows. Some favorite brands include LimeLight by Alcone, RCMA, Kryolan, Kett, Viseart, Face Atelier, NARS, Laura Mercier, LORAC, Becca and Make Up For Ever.

 

Do you do airbrush makeup?

Yes! I work with each client to custom blend the perfect shade of foundation, and then apply by hand or airbrushing, based on her desired look. 

 

What will you need me to provide on my wedding day?

Not a thing, unless there is a particular product or hair accessory you want to use.  My team and I arrive with complete hair and makeup kits, including lashes. We also travel with makeup chairs and high-quality lighting to ensure professional application, regardless of location.
