Choosing the right hair and makeup look for your warm-weather event is tricky. It's about so much more than just what you love and what looks good; you also want to select a style that will keep you cool, that feels fresh and fun, and that has serious staying power. Easier said than done, right? Perhaps if you don't have Linsey Snyder Wachalter, owner of Face Time Beauty, in your corner. Here, the pro shares her favorite hair and makeup looks for every pre- and post-wedding event. From your engagement party and bridal shower to your bachelorette party and the wedding itself, Wachalter's tips and tricks are genius, fool-proof, and absolutely gorgeous.
Everything Is Rosy
Pair this hairstyle with one of the prettiest new makeup trend: The rose gold eye. "Rose gold eye makeup is all the rage right now and I love it," Wachalter says. "There are so many rose gold tones and everyone can find a hue that flatters their face." Pair your shadow with a light layer of mascara, a sweep of bronzer, and rose-hued lips for a summery makeup look.
Whether you want to own this style for your shower, rehearsal dinner, or the wedding itself, Wachalter insists this braided crown is so perfectly bridal. "It's definitely a whimsical look that takes effort," she says, "but you can pull out pieces to make it look a little more relaxed. It's really fun, and a classic summertime look, but it can be difficult to do on your own."
What's easier (and prettier!) than a classic ponytail? Inspired by Olivia Palermo's incredibly chic big-day pony, Wachalter loves the way this seemingly simple style pairs with a gorgeous wedding dress. And while it's aesthetically pleasing, it's also undeniably functional, too. "It's the perfect style for the dance floor," she says. "I always love hair down with big waves for the ceremony and then sweeping it up to the perfect pony for the party."
