But at the end of the day, if you find a look you're happy with - you have to stick with it! This is the perfect example of my natural look make-up - which, by the way does still use a fair amount of product. Including my current foundation love which is Estee Lauder Double Wear - not one known for it's light and natural finish but one I've made work for me and absolutely adore.

To use Estee Lauder Double Wear* and still get a natural finish I have two tricks, one I always use and one I only use if I need an extra boost for some glow.
My first trick is to always buff using my favourite Real Techniques Buffing Brush. A sponge or a traditional foundation brush just don't create the same finish.
My second trick, and the only one I use when I need an extra boost - I drop a tiny amount of serum in with the foundation. Only a tiny amount but it really does give it a boost. Serum wise, I've tried a few - Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair does the job really well.
As for other make-up, I keep it simple. Filling in brows for a little for definition (using Accessorize brow pencil in shade 01) plus a bit of MAC Brow Gel to fix. Touch of blusher - here I'm wearing Benefit Coralista, my all time blusher favourite. Layers and layers of mascara - currently loving Clinique High Impact Mascara*. It's not their latest, but it has a great fluffy but not huge brush and is amazing for applying multiple layers without clumps. Bottom lashes is of course Clinique Bottom Lash - it's an essential and a touch of Bare Minerals Concealer where needed. Done!
Anyone else like to keep things simple??
