Oh how I wish I had the money to have this made!! The bright pink feathers with that stenciled G on the cover is the perfect blend of pretty and grungy. I was just listening to this album the other day, I’d forgotten how good it is – it’s been ages since I’d listened it and not just a song here or there on my iPod. Milk is my fave, it’s so depressing and haunting. <3

Fran Healy’s Wreckorder. There needs to be a bright yellow satin shade called “Buttercups” 😀

Cyndi Lauper. The album with “Girls just wanna have fun”….colorful, bold, red, outlandish and all girl. Punk era. Glad I had a punk hair cut when I was young in college.

I would pick Metric – Fantasies.

A dirty red gold duochrome for Help I’m Alive, a glittering platinum gold for Gold Girls Guns, a shimmering jade-gold for Blindness and a candy pink with gold shimmer for Stadium Love.

Can you tell I like shimmer?

The Disappearance of the Girl by Phildel. In fact, I have made a franken eyeshadow collection based on it. I can’t help that I find it very inspiring! 😛

Blink182 Enema of the State! It would have really bold bright eyeshadows, jet black liner, red/fuschia lipstick and it would be wonderful haha! 🙂

i can totally see the link between those colours and Garbage! i love how colour can be perceived by sound its so intriguing

Ceremonials by Florence + The Machine. I love the Deco style of the images/text and a collection based around that would be super wearable and really versatile. It would probably need eyeshadows in gold, coral-peach, ivory, and a matte brown, a black eyeliner (maybe kohl), and red lipstick.

For me- No Doubt’s ‘Return of Saturn’. There are really fun ska dance songs like “Bathwater” where you could fun colors (brights greens, yellows, oranges, turquoise, reds) and more dark songs like “Dark Blue” where you could do a nice metallic shimmery midnight blue. The album is centered around the return of Saturn (an astrological phenomena) so you could do lots of glitter, metallic, shimmer, duo chrome and really dark (black, dark purple, midnight blue, dark metalic grey), bright colors ( hot pink, yellow, aqua, purple) or pale (shimmery whites, pastels, golds, slivers, opals) . You always associate a hot pink with no doubt, so that would automatically be in there. and they have a song called “Magic’s in the Makeup” how more perfect could you get? lol

Brilliant! I’ve suggested ROS too, it’s my favourite album, but I totally forgot about Magic’s in the Makeup!

I’d probably pick Stereo Alchemy’s “God of Love” album (it’s fairly obscure, but seriously it’s an amazing album). There’d probably be a true red lipstick and a nude lipstick, then super-pigmented black and brown eyeliner, maybe an eyeshadow palette with some matte nude shades (an off-white highlighter, a nude beige, a nude brown, and a black). Which sounds fairly boring, I suddenly realize. Oh, well.

Great question! I’d say Return of Saturn by No Doubt: shocking pink, hot red, midnight blue and sparkling white.

Bjork’s Vespertine, and the colors would be all icy and wintry, with accents of black and white.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band! Bright colors like the Beatle’s marching band uiforms: Paul’s electric blue, John’s neon green, Ringo’s hot pink, and George’s candy apple red; and pure psychedlia from the lyrics: tangerine (trees), marmalade (skies), think Summer of Love. I know I would buy it…but I would buy anything related to my beloved Beatles!

Ditto. Sgt. Pepper was a turning point for the Beatles. They insisted that everything on it be “different” resulting in approximately 700 hours of recording time. It was a time of great experimentation in a number areas of their lives – I would expect Sgt. Pepper collection to include some incredible new makeup textures and colors.

And I was but a ‘youngin at the time.

Haha, for some strange reason, when I listen to 21 by Adele, I just see a MAC collection collaboration with Adele. Set Fire to the Rain would be a red lipstick, and Someone Like You would be a warm-toned pale pink blush, and Rolling in the Deep would be a brown eye shadow, Rumor Has It would be a nude/pink lipstick, and a face primer or eye shadow primer called He Won’t Go.

Going by album covers, I really like Discovery LP (by Discovery). It’s so colorful and has this psychedelic, 80s feel to it. The music reflects that as well. It would make for a great eyeshadow range.

Sigur Rós “Takk…” Nude lips, shimmery green eyes. Actually, there’s a lot I would do from them. “Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust” could make a collection of the greatest explosion of color!
