Natural Looking Base with Only Three Products

If you had read this post, you would know that I am all about the base. To me, the perfect base is equivalent to a blank piece of canvas before an artist can create his or her masterpiece.

My favourite Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation was truly well loved during summer this year. Between my holiday in Malaysia and the heat wave and the glorious summer in the UK, it was without a doubt my most go-to foundation for the year. 

However, since the weather had taken a turn and so did the clocks, I have been enjoying a thinner layer of base on my face. The almost nothing kind of look, you know, the no-makeup makeup look. 

I must have started creating this look back in September when I brought my office work home to be completed at the weekend. If you ever needed to work at the weekend, you could pick up my top 5 tips here. One of them is 'get up and get going' - I may be working at home but I would still get up and put on a good face - minimally. 

Since then, I have been obsessed and in love with the natural looking base. The best part of it all, the look can be created with only three products! T-H-R-E-E! 

Essentially, after completing my skincare steps I apply the Bobbi Brown Colour Corrector underneath the eye. The shade I use the Light Bisque, which is the perfect product to neutralise under eye darkness. The consistency is creamy yet easily blendable. 

Next, with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer, I dab a small amount under the eye, around my nose to remove any redness and any spot or areas which need concealing. 

Usually, after these two steps, I could happily go bare face, but to finish off (because why not?), I'd apply the Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Make Up as the final step of my three base products routine. Due to its water weight consistency, this gives a healthy, fresh and even-toned finish while making me feel there aren't any products on the face. 

And this my friends is how I create a natural looking base with only three products!
