I film and edit corporate videos for a living but I am yet to figure out a decent way to colour grade my work to give it a nice final look. I attempted at using Speed Grade but it looks quite advanced and I know nothing about grading. I downloaded a lite (free) version of Resolve the other day but still seems a little advanced considering how little I know. I also tried using some magic look stuff that has added into Premiere's effects called Lumetri Looks. I like the ease of use of this but the looks seem very over the top to me and all very cinematic when I just need basic alterations. I shoot from a DSLR in a flat profile and simply want to make the footage pop more, look more vivid (corporate look basically)
Any Ideas on the best thing for me to use?

You should be able to do all you need with the Three-Way Color Corrector in Premiere. Adjust the Input Levels sliders in a bit to give your video some pop and punch. Bring up the saturation, once they look normal then bump it up a bit. For a little extra charm for your corporate clients, use Magic Bullets Looks. It has a Cosmo filter that makes skin look very pleasing and that makes for happy clients. Plus, Magic Bullet Looks is much more user friendly for the non-colorist to add some nice touches.
