Makeup artist JV Galindo thinks that every woman should own a red lipstick.
Evening makeup doesn’t have to be complicated. Red lips, good mascara and sculpted eyebrows can instantly elevate your look.
A big fan of red lipsticks, JV likes all kinds of shades and textures. Sometimes, he mixes his own.
