Ah, summertime, and the livin’ is easy—so shouldn’t your makeup routine be, too? Ditch the multi-step regimen once the mercury rises, and opt for these barely there, multi-tasking products that stand the test of sweat while letting your skin shine through. (Did I mention they’re all cruelty-free and paraben-free to boot?)

NudeByNature.Natural-Glow-Loose-Bronzer-1024x675.jpg

Fake a sun-kissed glow with Aussie label Nude by Nature’s Natural Glow loose bronzer ($30). The mesh-screen packaging ensures that the mineral powder stays put until you need it—making on-the-go touch-ups a breeze—and the deep, highly pigmented shade works on darker-skinned gals. shoppersdrugmart.ca

RoseMarieSwift.Blush_-768x768.jpg

Vancouver-born makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift’s Pressed blush ($31) combines the ease of powder and the texture of cream in a buildable formula that comes in three pretty hues: Crushed Rose, a soft pink; Moon Cry, a rich plum; and Lost Angel, a dead (and non-toxic) ringer for Nars’s Orgasm. kissandmakeupstore.com

Kosas-Tinted-Face-Oil-768x768.jpg

At once a moisturizer and foundation, Kosas’s Tinted Face Oil foundation ($55) is a godsend on hot, humid days. The breathable, easy-to-apply formula (just use your fingers!) offers just enough coverage to blur imperfections, while jojoba, avocado and raspberry-seed oils nourish the skin. holtrenfrew.com

An all-natural dupe for Becca’s liquid highlighter, Liquid Light ($56) by locally founded Ilia Beauty is crafted from a gel-based formula that melts effortlessly into the skin. Mix a drop or two with your foundation for all-over glimmer, or dot it on the high points of your face for radiance on a subtler scale. indiarose.ca

EVALINA.DewBeauty-513x768.jpg

Vancouver-based Evalina’s Dew Beauty Benefit cream ($39) isn’t quite a foundation, but it imparts the perfect dewy tint for low-key days.
