Every bride needs a makeup maid of honor.

“Wedding makeup is not my hobby, it’s my profession. I love that I get to work with brides on one of the happiest days of their lives, and believe that getting ready for it should be one of the best parts of the experience. You should love the way you feel (relaxed, confident) as much as the way you look.”

What you can expect from Eliza Desch Makeup & Hair: The luxury of a seasoned beauty partner with over 13 years of experience creating flawless wedding hair and makeup. Eliza Desch is recognized throughout the Bay Area and beyond for skilled hair and makeup artistry, sophisticated styling, and unparalleled customer service.

Wedding Services

On your wedding day, you don’t want to think about being beautiful; you just want to be beautiful. Working with a professional hair and makeup artist means not having to worry about anything but enjoying every moment of the day. A photographer’s job is to capture those moments – mine is to make sure you look perfect in every one of them. I’ll work closely with you to create a look that’s customized to your personality, setting and style; I’m here to make you look and feel like the best version of yourself. It’s an investment not only in your look, but your confidence, your photos, your videos and your memories for years to come.

Because I believe every wedding should be a luxury experience, I only book one wedding a day so I am fully focused on you.  I will never rush your services because I'm trying to get to another wedding, nor will I be late to your wedding due to a prior booking. Whether your wedding day beauty approach is “I’ve (almost) got this” or “I’m not lifting a finger,” I offer a full range of services, each designed to achieve the same result: a timeless, beautiful look you’ll love.
