  1. Gossip Girl! Their makeup was always impeccable!

  2. Daria… all products must meet the approval of The Fashion Club. I’d buy all of it!

    Once Upon A Time for sure! Lots of different characters and styles to use, and there could be some really cool sets based on the fairytale/Storybrooke alternatives.

  4. Hannibal or Sherlock Holmes, both done by Urban Decay!

  5. Either My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Star Trek Voyager, or Sailor Moon.
    MLP has obvious color palettes they could do, Voyager or any Trek could have some fun colors and I’d adore seeing some Borg-inspired Metallics. Sailor Moon could have pretty and fun girly looks!

      Have you checked Geek Chic Cosmetics?

    • Avatar of karen kj hemeon

      If you haven’t, check out Cora’s (Vintage or Tacky) series on Sailor Moon. I loved them, + I’m too old to have even heard of SM before. Seriously, a great series.

    RuPaul’s Drag Race; can you just imagine the quality/pigmentation of the products, and the fact every contestant is so diverse, there would be something for *everyone*!

    The Five; Dana Perrino for cheek/face products, Andrea Tantaros for eyes, & Kimberly Guilfoyle for lips.

    Degrassi: The Next Generation; this would just be a killer money-maker…

    Real Housewives/New Jersey; each of the women have such definitive styles, and there could be a full collection for each one. I would imagine this could actually be done for all the “Housewives” series, which would add even more diversity/variety.

    Mob Wives; for the same reasons as “Housewives”.

    Can you tell I watch entirely way too much reality TV?

  7. Charmed! I’ve always loved Rose McGrown’s makeup.

  8. I’d LOVE a Buffy collection; it’s my favourite show ever. That said, I can think of other shows that really lend themselves well to make-up collections … I can picture a really vibrant Pushing Daisies collection, for instance.

  9. Game of Thrones!!! All the different lands and kingdoms could have different makeup themes and I think it would be really cool!

  10. Leah

    Walking dead, Game of thrones or Archer. I would have also loved Urban Decay to do a True Blood collection since I wasn’t too keen on the Tarte one.

  11. sarah

    Maby My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, i think Urban Decay could to it well!

  12. stacey

    Mad Men. That makeup…back to the ’60s. Any ’60 TV show.
    Charlies Angels….loved that hair! And that makeup was so ’70s….all fluff.
    That Girl. Rhoda. Mary Tyler Moore Show. Brady Bunch….”Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!”
    The Munsters and The Addams Family. Ann Sothern Show. I love Lucy.
    Yep…they are all better than these Reality Shows …innovative makeup….no fake boobs.
    Yep…they are all grandma shows but far so entertaining and everyone wanted to look like either Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor (the tasteful version Kim Kardashian).

    • Avatar of Amy xamyx

      I agree those shows were *all* better than what we have now (although reality shows are a bit of a “guilty pleasure”, LOL), but I wonder how they would sell in a mass market. My initial thoughts for this question were Addams Family & The Munsters, but then I decided to answer with a show that was “relevant” to today’s market.

      • VickyM

        The Addams Family is definitely relevant to todays market, I´m not sure if little children know about it but I´m 23 and I love it and all my classmates know about this show, and I´m not even from the USA so that one could be relevant, many of the others I have never heard about though…

        • stacey

          You can type the names of those shows and find them under “Wikipedia”. This was around woman’s liberation era. They were the “It Girls” during that time. Short mini skirts. Dark eye makeup. Bangs. Sexy, but not everything hanging out……well, in any case…not Charlies Angels…they all went braless running to catch a thief…but they had the glossy mane and glossy lips and profound blush. I was less than 10 years old when I watched them and wish I carried their charisma.

  13. I loved your blog before this post. Your answer only made me love it more (specially Buffy)!

  14. I somehow missed that you were a BtVS fan! YAY! Right now I’d love to see a collection based off of Teen Wolf or Vampire Diaries. (so predictable, I know!)

  15. Avatar of Jen Jen

    Sex and the City!!! A set of items for Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte! I would buy everything!

    Carrie: maybe neutrals with lots of highlighting products. Creamy products and bronzers.

    Samantha: orange lipsticks, smokey eyes, and bold colors!

    Miranda: red red red! I would love to see different shades of red and neutral browns on the eyes. Maybe peach tone blushes.

    Charlotte: dainty pinks and pastels. Pink blushes with pinky nail polishes.

  16. Anna

    American Horror Story by Illamasqua!

  17. Rita O.

    I absolutely LOVE the idea of a makeup collection for the original Beverly Hills 90210!!

  18. The Walking Dead? Just kidding. :)

    Game of Thrones. Danerys Targaryen (The Dragon Palette), Cersei Lannister (The Regal Palette), Arya Stark (The Strong Palette), Sansa Stark (The Soft Palette)… So many women with so many possible color themes (I’m probably missing a few, but it’s 4am and my brain isn’t fully engaged yet).

  19. Spooks/MI-5! Not really a show where makeup was in the forefront but I loved how Hermione Norris (Ros) looked in quite a few episodes and was always trying to figure out what eye shadow(s) she was wearing! I’m not a “bronzer” person but there was one particular episode where she looked like a bronzed goddess. My best friend, who is also a fan of the show, would laugh when I would say “Gee, I’d like to be like Ros and do THAT to anyone who was bothering me” (usually after she’d floored some goon who was following her and warned him “not to do that again or I won’t be so nice the next time”)

  20. The Tudors! I’m thinking metallics and jewel tones, I think it would be really beautiful.

  21. [email protected]

    Desperate Housewives!

  22. Roxana

    Totally, TOTALLY agree with the Buffy suggestion! Not only because it’s my favorite show of all time but because I was in fourth grade when it was on and it was just when I started thinking about playing with my mom’s makeup. All those frosty ’90s eyeshadows and brown lipsticks may seem hideous now, but man, how I loved them back then. Great suggestion, Christine!

  23. Yasmin

    RuPauls Drag Race!!!! I lovee RuPaul! Shes soo Amazing!

  24. atrixe

    Adventure Time!

    • Avatar of Michelle halle

      yes, a princess bubblegum palette, a marceline palette and last but not least…LUMPY SPACE PRINCESS!

  25. Good choices, Christine! I would say Charmed or Once Upon a TIme.

  26. Avatar of Tracy GraceDale22

    Game of Thrones or Once Upon A Time

  27. You just grew even more in my eyes! Of course Buffy should get a beauty collection :D

  28. Avatar of Joanna Joanna

    A few that come to mind are…

    Game of Thrones (especially Daenerys Targaryen); Battlestar Galactica; and Boardwalk Empire

  29. Banafshe Sharifian

    Twilight or Hunger Games.

  30. Mad Men! Also, Game of Thrones but it would probably be a little strange haha.

  31. zainab

    I’m assuming that lots of people are going to go with period piece shows like Mad Men, Downton Abbey etc, and those are fine choices, but I think a Simpsons or Futurama collection would be fun- lots of bright cream polishes in yellow and purple and so on.

  32. Avatar of Marisa Marisa

    I would buy a Punky Brewster makeup line, but she wasn’t really old enough for that to make sense. Maybe Saved by the Bell?

  33. Avatar of Monica Monica

    Saved by the Bell! You could have a collection for Kelly, Lisa & Jesse…but no Screech!

  34. VickyM

    Lol the fact that I don´t watch TV makes this a harder question but from the shows I do watch on occasion and know about, I would say either “Friends” or “the Big Bang theory” would be nice. If I wanted to be creepier I would say “Are you afraid of the dark?” could be fun. If it was cartoons I would consider something like Naruto could have so many possibilities and would sell like crazy. I would choose Mac to do either of the collections because I can´t see a higher end brand choosing any of this topics for a collection.

  35. Anya

    Game of Thrones
    Lost Girl
    Buffy

  36. Avatar of Brenda Brenda

    OOOOOOHHHH, the original 90210 is a good one!! That was my middle and high school years so I’m still into those colours LOL!

    I was going to say Gilligan’s Island and Once Upon A Time. Or the original Bewitched!

  37. i know Estee Lauder already did a small Mad Men collection, but i feel like there could definitely be a better one.

  38. carla

    True Blood.. by UD for sure!

  39. Beverly Hills 90210, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and True Blood. :)

  40. Avatar of Amber AmberM

    Growing up, I was a huge Guiding Light fan. I think any soap opera would be a good fit for a cosmetics line because of so many names, places, and events. :)

    • Avatar of Kim Kimmwc03

      Well, the Young and Restless had a Jabot line (Jabot was a cosmetics company on the show)that sold in Ulta for a few months. I don’t think it did too well though.

  41. Avatar of Lily Lily M

    Sex and the city my ultimate favorite show , have the whole series . Just imagine all the colors and ode to stilettoes ! Love

  42. Game of Thrones and Vikings.. Love how everyone looks like a complete rock star on Vikings.

  43. Diane

    I know it will never happen, but I’d love to see a range of lipsticks or something to tie in with Hannibal – the visual style and art direction of the show are consistently stunning, and I’d love to see the dark, deep, morbidly beautiful aesthetic they come up with.

  44. Avatar of T Violet Lee

    How about like old school (1960′s) Star Trek? You could have awesome black eyeliners and eyelashes with “space” inspired colors like Orion slave girl green. I’m picturing lots of light, neutral lipsticks and a great white eye shadow.

  45. Avatar of stef stef

    Gidget! I would love makeup just like a teenage Sally Field!

  46. Avatar of Chelsea Chelsea

    My first thought when I saw this question was Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Another off-air show that could have inspired a pretty cool makeup collection is Charmed.

    I know True Blood has been done by both Tarte and Deborah Lippmann, but I would like to see another group attempt a collection.

    Heck, let’s do a Top Gear collection and channel our inner Jeremy Clarkson. Just kidding :)

  47. Amanda

    I’d love see a Boardwalk Empire collection, most likely by Urban Decay. They already have shades named Bourbon and Whiskey, so that’s a good start haha. They could have several palettes and lipstick shades to go with different characters (ie. a more neutral look for Margaret; a dark, vampy look for Lucy).

  48. Avatar of Kim Kimmwc03

    Buffy would be awesome. I’m surprised no one said Pretty Little Liars. I’ve seen YT tutorials for Hanna and Aria’s looks on the show but a collection would be good too. I also think Teen Wolf or Vampire Diaries would be good.

  49. Sex & The City hands down! or POKEMON! LOL.

  50. Tigress

    Definitely Buffy!

  51. Game Of Thrones, of course.
    And Skins (British version). I just started watching it again, and I think it would be a really good collection. The characters’ makeup is imperfect, but it is fun:)

  52. Avatar of Jerrilyn Jan

    Sex and the City
    The one that they should first create makeup looks for and then market: The Brady Bunch.
    Everytime I looked at those girls, I thought they looked like they just needed a bit of color.

  53. I second Buffy and ANY version of Star Trek! DOCTOR WHO, Game of Thrones & Firefly.

    • Geek Chic has created Dr. Who (Timey Wimey) , GoT (Win or Die), Star Trek (Go Boldly) and Firefly (Big Damn Heroes) collections. I can’t think of any indie who has done BtVS though.

  54. Avatar of Geneva Geneva Dell

    Devious Maids with all the dark eyed/haired beauties. Suits with the variety of women and coloring. The Good Wife with the women of various ages, I LOVE Kalinda’s makeup.

  55. Avatar of Dorottya doroffee

    Sabrina the Teenage Witch, haha! I would be all over that :D. Buffy is a good choice, too.
    As for new shows, I don’t watch too many, and mostly investigation shows… I don’t know if a good collection can be made of Criminal Minds, for example :D.

  56. Hannibal! Pretty Little Liars would be fun, and I think Adventure Time could be really cool if it was done well enough. Punky Brewster would be really fun too! (I went as Punky Brewster for Halloween when I was 8. xD)

  57. Nikki

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta. They always appear naturally flawless, and I love that!

  58. I second the “Buffy” choice and would add “Firefly”. Inara wore amazing eye colors and I would buy anything named after Malcolm Reynolds. :-) And what about “Angel?” We would need a color in honor of Lorne–it’s not easy being–Greene (aka Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan). From outside the Whedonverse, how about “Arrow?” Not only would we get some gorgeous greens, but Felicity rocks pretty great lip color on the show. And I wonder what colors could be conjured from “Supernatural.” Wow… my geek is showing, isn’t it?

    • Geek Chic created a Supernatural collection called Superneutrals and they also did a Firefly collection called Big Damn Heroes.

      I would love to see BtVS and Angel :)

  59. Avatar of Lacey Lacey

    So glad to know I’m not the only one who still likes Buffy! :)

    I think the makeup for the girls on Pretty Little Liars is always gorgeous, a collection of some of the signature colors or looks for that cast would be fun.

  60. sara

    Hart of Dixie…Lemon Breeland Brights Please!

  61. The Adams family, lily munster, hannibal, charmed, buffy, game of thrones, vampire diaries

  62. islander

    Downton Abbey!

  63. Leonor

    I would say MadMen or DEXTER (with all tints of red !! and army greens)
    I would like a tv cartoon show like TRON or Star Wars: Clone Wars ( i have ideas lol )

  64. Avatar of Danielle DANIELLE SHARK

    I would love to see a beauty collection for the following shows:

    - Pretty Little Liars
    - The Vampire Diaries
    - Game of Thrones

  65. Avatar of Karen Karen

    I’d love to see Buffy too as well as Game of Thrones, Elementary and Once Upon A Time. Space age/futuristic would be nice too like Star Trek (any) or Battlestar Gallactica.

  66. Basema

    Sex and the City & Gossip Girl
