    The first thing you need to do is apply the essentials before moving to the blush. You cannot simply expect to jump directly to blush without going through the usual steps of a makeup. First, apply your primer. Do not apply more primer just because you are going to wear red lipstick later on and go with the usual routine of yours.  After primer, apply foundation and concealer. Make sure that you do not put extra foundation because you think the blush will cover and be very precise in what you do. Because the beauty of a makeup lies in its base and here, foundation will do that job for you.

    Now, pick up your red lipstick and apply it to your lips. There are no hard and fast rules about how to apply the lipstick here. Just take it like a lipstick of any other shade and apply in a way that suits you the most. Apply it sparingly or daringly, it’s totally up to you and if you are still confused about the style of the lipstick, you can always consult a professional.

    After you are done with the lipstick, comes the blush part. You need to be very careful here because this part can make or break your look. A lot of blush will make your face look a lot bigger and it won’t suit you. In addition to that, excessive blush can take away the super natural look from your face that most of the guys out there love to see on a girl’s face. On the other hand, if you are applying way too less blush, this will effect on the lipstick shade. Since you are wearing red, you cannot afford to put a very thin layer of blush.
