I been painting my Blood Angels by priming the model white, then a coat of blood red, ink the model in magenta ink, then doing the other details. Is there any other way thats easier?
Basic version of the way I did mine...
Chaos Black base
Blood Red highlights
Blood Red / orange fury(?)
Basically lots of thin layers wins the day.

i went into games workshop and they told one way is to- basecoat skull white, power armour painted blood red, metal painted chaos black, wash power armour with thinned dark flesh, paint metal with tin bitz, dry brush metal with chainmail, highlight power armour edges with thinned blazing orange, the rest is easy enuf to do urself. Ill post a pic of my blood angel dreadnought using this way when im finished
Possibly the easiest way to paint them would be:
Spray them red
Ink them black/Dip them into some Minwax.

It seems you are asking for methods that require less effort, rather than advanced techniques for better results?
I would think that doing a coat of Mechrite Red first, then Blood Red on top, will in the end save you effort over the multiple coats of Blood Red it takes to get an even finish. It will also add some depth to the model.
For red power armor on my sisters of battle I do Mechrite Red -> Devlan Mud Wash -> Blood Red -> Blazing Orange Highlight -> Half Strength Baal Red Wash
Doesn't win any Gold Daemons, but from table height they look very good, which is generally the goal for troopers
Here's a WIP one before the second wash:
