LOL! I caught a couple of episodes last night, actually, and caught this exchange:

“What’s wrong with her face?”
“She’s not wearing makeup.”
“Oooh… Is that a new thing?”

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.

Yes! they could do snow and the evil queen and a lot of the female characters looks it would be great!

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!

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?

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.

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

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

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!)

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.

The Walking Dead? Just kidding. ๐Ÿ™‚

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).

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”)

Desperate Housewives!

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!

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

A few that come to mind areโ€ฆ

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

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.

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?

Lol the fact that I donยดt 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 canยดt see a higher end brand choosing any of this topics for a collection.

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!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

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

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.

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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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).

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.

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:)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

I second the “Buffy” choice and would add “Firefly”. Inara wore amazing eye colors and I would buy anything named after Malcolm Reynolds. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

So glad to know I’m not the only one who still likes Buffy! ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

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 )

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

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

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.
