If you love using organic, natural products in your daily life, there's no reason you have to change that for your wedding. Especially right now, when there are so many natural brands that work well and come wrapped in super chic packaging. (We can't count the number of times we walk into Credo or Shen and want to buy basically everything in sight.) But since our bank accounts can't afford every incredible product, we've narrowed it down to several must-haves, each of which are free of phlalates, sulfates, parabens, and the rest of those questionable, controversial ingredients. These buys will give you a pretty wedding-day polish, without breaking your clean streak.
Ready to go clean? Check out eight of our favorite natural beauty products brides-to-be need in their medicine cabinets.
Jane Iredale isn't a newbie natural brand but a tried-and-true mineral makeup line that has the best blush ever. (It's buildable and gives you the perfect pink bridal flush.) We're partial to the shade Awake, but all of the other nine shades are flattering and natural-looking, too.

Highlighter can be tricky, because you want to wear enough that you look glowy and ethereal, but not so much that you look like you're going to a disco (unless, of course, that's your thing). This one is sheer and light, so you can just pat a bit on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your cupid's bow (that's the curve of your upper lip!), and in the corners of your eyes for a just-dewy-enough, light-reflecting look.

Natural or not, it's hard to find a mascara that coats every lash without looking clumpy. And that's especially important for your wedding, when you want your eyelashes to look fluttery and Bambi-esque. This one does just that—the fact that it's organic is just icing on the cake. For extra oomph, we like to curl our lashes beforehand with Shu Uemura's eyelash curler—the gold standard of eyelash curlers.

This one's a full coverage concealer, it's not cakey, and it's moisturizing, which helps it blend seamlessly into your skin. (There's nothing worse than when concealer attracts more attention to what you're trying to cover up.) Bonus: It works on everything, from blemishes to hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles.

Not only is this one of the most flattering shades of red we've ever used (it's blue-based, so it looks good on everyone), but it contains several natural oils and fruits that hydrate and make your lips healthier each time you wear it. We like to dab it on with our finger and use it like a stain so that it looks effortless and unfussy.

Bar soap got a bad rap for a bit, but it's making a comeback. Did you know it's naturally antibacterial, so you don't have to worry about it getting gross after each use? We recently discovered Osmia's bar soaps, and we especially love the Black Clay, which is perfect for combination or oily skin that's prone to breakouts. (Even if you don't get breakouts, it's not drying—it contains avocado, almond, and castor bean oils to moisturize.) The black clay and dead sea mud, however, are the hero ingredients, as they balance oil production and purify pores.

For touch ups, there's nothing better than simple, refreshing rosewater spray. The smell alone is a perfect pick-me-up, and rosewater stimulates circulation (which helps add color to your complexion) and contains brightening vitamin C. It sits on our desk and we probably spray it about 20 times per day. (Maybe that's a bit excessive, but whatever.)

To make your hair voluminous and full of body throughout your entire wedding ceremony and reception (and also for your bachelorette party, engagement party, and all of those other parties), prep with this clay mask-slash-shampoo: The clay helps cleanse your scalp and adds volume, and rose extract makes hair shiny (rose has several beautifying properties, if you haven't noticed). You just massage it on wet hair, and then, when it turns to a foam, rinse it out. When we use it, the volume lasts for two days—and that's without using any additional styling products.
