There’s a lot of emphasis on bridal beauty—and rightly so. But what if makeup isn’t your forte? Preferring a minimal routine and natural makeup look on the reg shouldn’t preclude you from stepping it up on your wedding day. For clarity, that doesn’t mean piling on tons of products. In fact, all you need are a few foolproof formulas to achieve an aisle-ready look that’s still totally laid-back and easy to execute. Cue these makeup products that are practically made for low-maintenance brides.

For a natural makeup look on your wedding day, add the following makeup products to your arsenal.
