Blush to Wear – To look great in plumps, ensure you put on a good blush that will give your face the radiance you need. Go for shades that will compliment your eye makeup and lip makeup.

You could go for neutral or skip it to go for something with color. However, it should not snatch away the attention from your lips. Go for a subtle color of blush.  For great looks, you can wear an intense pink blush to help lighten your face.

Face Foundation – For natural glow, choose a good foundation to ensure you look chic and fresh. Face powders, primers and concealers are still ok to help hide blemishes on your face since redness will be more visible when you wear a plump lipstick since it has some red tone.

Outfit to wear with – When you intend to put on plum lipstick, you need to decide on the attires to wear with it. It is recommended to go for neutral attire colors such as beige, black, or white since you cannot go wrong with them.  If you insist on other colors, try burnt orange outfit colors, and do not put on burgundy colored outfits.

All the above face makeup should be applied before you begin applying your plum lipstick to help you evaluate your looks. Do not begin with lipstick then go these makeup.
