Okay, we’ve spent the last few days talking about the Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Resort 2020 Collection clothes, so now let’s turn our attention to the other star of the show… the makeup! Specifically in my case… the lipstick! In fact, my lip colors are one of your most frequently asked questions!
And once again, Suzie Moldovan, the award-winning makeup artist I’ve worked with for all our Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collections, did not disappoint! She found some of the most gorgeous and flattering shades, all perfectly coordinated for the Collection! Today I’m sharing all the makeup she used to bring the Resort 2020 Collection to life, along with her top lip color picks for the season… and it’s all available at Nordstrom!
You think your makeup bag is full… Suzie actually uses this suitcase to hold and transport her kit! Plus another bag just for hair tools!
We went with a smoky burgundy eye, so the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette was perfect.

Once the face was done, it was time for the lips (my fave!). Lots of thought goes into choosing the right lip colors to really make the Collection pop!
We chose a palette of pinks and reds, and layered them for several different shades depending on the color of my outfit. We came up with this formula and mostly stuck with it to make it easier to identify the colors for you later!
If I’m wearing Black or Red // Mac Powder Kiss Lipstick in ‘Shocking Revelation’
(Fun Fact, I’m so obsessed with this perfect pinky-red, we used it to create the ‘Rossa’ color way in the Collection! So it’s an exact match! It’s a stunning shade that looks amazing on every skin tone…a definite must-have for your makeup bag!)
And every once in awhile, Suzie added a little Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss in ‘Fruit Juice‘ for a bit of a purple tone.
Before & after Suzie’s makeup magic! It’s quite the transformation, right?! It’s obviously more than everyday makeup, but looks completely natural on camera.
As for the hair… we went with an undone curl (I like it messy!) and a side-swept bang. Suzie used the T3 Curling Iron in a 1-inch barrel in small sections for lots of curls (leaving the ends straight for a more modern look) and volume.
Suzie not only brings talent and zen to the set, but lots of fun, too! Photoshoot days are long and busy, but I always have a blast with this team! And not having to wonder or worry with how I look means I’m able to focus on my job.
Of course I had to have all these lip colors for myself, so I headed straight to Nordstrom to stock up when we got home! Are you a bold lip girl, or do you prefer to keep it neutral? I got my love of bright lips from my grandmother, she always told me to ‘Put your lips on!’ I think it just instantly brightens your face and smile.
