Wedding day is a long day. That's true no matter who you are: the bride, the groom, a member of the supporting cast, or even a guest. But, as one half of the marrying duo, it's likely important for you to stay luminous and comfortable throughout the festivities. That's a tall order, sure, but not impossible — especially when you've got the completely cruelty-free, vegan, and nontoxic products ahead.
These items freshen, calm, and basically save the day, and you'll want to pack every one of them in your kit for easy fixes as the big event unfolds. Or, be the best M.O.H. ever and surprise your bestie with a beautiful cosmetics' pouch (might we suggest this one?) full of these natural, good-for-you products. Click through to see picks for superhero products that will keep you glowing even after the cake's been cut.

This multipurpose, heavenly smelling wonder will banish sweat, odor, and greasy roots on the spot. The non-staining kaolin helps clothes slip on (and off) with ease and degreases hair for styling, while fine cocoa butter hydrates and keeps skin comfortable. Plus, aromatic vetiver and oh-so-romantic jasmine keep sweaty pits and feet cool and smelling amazing. Sprinkle some in your shoes to prevent blistering and chafing.

You’re probably going to be doing a lot of smooching on your big day. This indelible lip marker is my everyday favorite for creating precise, long-lasting lip looks that stay put well into cocktails and dancing — you’ll never want to use lip liner again. While I’m a personal fangirl of Flamenco (a classic, bombshell red), the wedding-appropriate Jitterbug, Waltz, and Tango shades are perfect for creating blushing-bride lips and cheeks.
