The Best Blusher To Wear With Red Lipstick

For years I shied away from wearing red lipstick, I think it was a combination of lacking in confidence to carry it off,  feeling it was just too bright and 'out there' for me and not really knowing how best to wear it. Remember, when I was younger we just didn't have the wealth of information, blogs and vlogs that exist now!

However, if you read my blog you will have noticed that recently I have been far more adventurous. Actually, in my 30's I am really enjoying wearing more reds and in experimenting I am learning which reds suit me and even daring to wear a cheeky red during the day...

One of my main issues was working out what blush to best team with a red lip. A lot of people say that you don't need to wear a blusher when wearing a red lipstick. I wasn't blessed with nice, defined cheekbones so I have to cheat, so for me, going without blusher is just not an option.

Happily I have found the perfect blusher to go with a red lipstick and it is Cargo Cosmetics Blush in Tonga

I apply this blusher every time I wear a red lipstick but it is also ideal for wearing with a nude/natural look and understated look too.

Tonga is a beautiful neutral matte shade that has a silky smooth texture, almost cream-like, which when applied provides a barely there, sheer appearance on the skin. Blendable and buildable, I like that you can define the cheeks as much or as little as necessary.
