    glow-blush-red?

    Hello everyone! Can any of you answer my question? Thank you!
    Bellatrix's astounded face glowed red in the blaze of a third unique flame--since glow itself has the meaning of BLUSH, why was red still used here?

    Glow doesn't necessarily mean red. If someone glows with happiness, it just means they look bright, but they wouldn't be red with happiness. Here, because it's a flame, the word isn't necessary, though.

    Thanks. Tdol! You mean "red" isn't necessary, right?

    Here, it isn't really necessary because it also mentions the flame.
