What movie would you love to see a makeup collection for?

What movie would you love to see a makeup collection for? What brand would create it?

I’d love a Finding Nemo collection πŸ˜‰ As far as brand goes, theBalm or Urban Decay (because I envision lots of eyeshadows, so I’d want a top formula!).

I would LOVE to see a Breakfast at Tiffany’s collection! Not too picky about the brand as long as they put out solid products in the collection.

Defintely Labyrinth. Second choice would be The Dark Crystal. As far as what brand, I would also have to say Urban Decay. I think they would do a collection of either one of those movies really well. Ugh. Now I’m disappointed that it’s only wishful thinking.

Harry Potter. Mac should make an individual collection with each house like when they did the Disney Villains collection.

I would buy the entire Slytherin Collection and the eyeshadow for the other houses.

Oh I love this question. My sweet side says “The Sound of Music” could inspire a beautiful collection but my sinister side says “Sweeney Todd” could have been fun and interesting.

Megan Avatar

A better Alice In Wonderland set by a great brand, a Clueless set and a Pleasantville set (one of my favorite films ever!). Any Marilyn Monroe film too.

Precious Avatar

Hunger Games. I’ve been fantasizing about a collection that’s based on the costumes of the tributes when they were being interviewed. As far as brand goes, my best bet would be Urban Decay because I’d like to see a lot of eyeshadows as well. πŸ™‚

I forgot about this show. Have to admit – it was especially creative with regards to make-up looks. Although the looks were not very wearable for current 2013 society, the colors could be integrated into a variety of evening or special events looks.

I haven’t seen the film yet but I’d have to say The Great Gatsby. And I’d love to seem something based on either Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Sabrina (well, any Audrey Hepburn film but that’s because I love Audrey Hepburn and her amazing beauty and style).

You should check out Geek Chic and Shiro! The former has a Princess Bride one, and the latter has a Hobbit collection πŸ™‚

Harry Potter! I’ve actually spent time thinking up colors, names, and so on that I’d like to see. I think Urban Decay or MAC would be good choices for the brand.

Janelly Avatar

I think mine will be a weird answer but maybe a Forrest Gump collection! By doing a Forrest Gump collection you can have mini sets within the collection dedicated to each decade of the movie. I picture a brand like Estee Lauder or maybe even Bobbi Brown doing something like this.

Nicole Avatar

Maybe a Sex and the City collection, because of different looks inspired by the 4 ladies. It should be released by a brand based in New York and should be available worldwide.

Katie Avatar

Omg, a Nemo collection would almost be too perfect. Imagine those bright colors! I’m going to follow up with an Avatar collection.

I love this question πŸ˜€ , well itΒ΄s really hard for me to decide on this one, because there are quite a few nice movies for something like a makeup line but I will choose two: Elizabeth I queen of England, I would love a collection that featured or gave tribute to her time era from the lipstick to the nail polish to the blush, eye shadow, powders and perfumes with a packaging that resembled the expensive things that royals had back then. My second option would be Lord of the Rings, this one is more in the fantasy field so there would be so many options for the packaging and colors, with themes like human warriors, hobbits, elves, and even trolls lol, this would be very fun and have so much potential. The brand for the Elizabeth collection would be either Ysl, Chanel, Dior, Givenchy or Guerlain since I think these brands could easily capture the essence from the product to the packaging of Elizabeth’s time. As for the Lord of the Ring collection maybe a not so serious brand could make it, like Too faced, since they have fairy tale themes on their pallets sometimes, the balm, or Mac since Mac didnΒ΄t do too bad with the Archie’s girls collection or the Marilyn collection πŸ™‚ .

If someone made a Breakfast at Tiffany’s Collection I would buy it ALL- probably ten times over πŸ™‚ I’m not sure who I’d like to make it- probably one of the older cosmetics houses and perhaps French.

I’d also fancy a Gatsby line and maybe a ….. LOTR Collection. Theme it on locations in Middle Earth-They could have a mossy greens/browns/cosy neutrals for the Hobbiton products and some rich plums, blacks and greys for Mordor. Pretty highlighters and ethereal shades for Rivendell.

Gone with the Wind — Besame Cosmetics for their gorgeous old-fashioned products and textures, or Julie Hewett who started out with film makeup!

Casablanca — Hourglass! So sophisticated and well-edited.

The Wizard of Oz — definitely Make Up For Ever, who’s better at incredibly vivid colors?

Liz Avatar

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes would make wonderful 1950s inspired collection. It would be great since you have a blonde character and a brunette. I would love to have Estee Lauder do it. I personally don’t wear Estee Lauder, but I think they would do a great job with the packaging.

I would also love to see Fashion Fair do a Foxy Brown collection (the movie starring Pam Grier). That would be awesome.

Shelly Avatar

Definitely Moulin Rouge! As for which brand, either Urban Decay or MUFE (I think the latter put out an inspired lipstick a little while back? I’d like to see what they’d do with a full collection).

Anne-Laure Avatar

A Harry Potter collection, by Urban Decay: four palettes, one per House, in nice pop up boxes like the Alice or New York City Books of Shadows: ooooh, I would go completely nerdie for these…

My other guilty pleasure being the LOTR trilogy: a LOTR nail collection by OPI, or a LOTR whole collection based on the elements used by the different species: green/forest/woods/leaves for the Elves, grey/metal for the Orks, black/red/fire for Sauron, browns/rocks for the Dwarves, bright colours/flowers/fireworks for the Hobbits, etc… Would be fun to see this by Benefit or Chanel.

The Great Gatsby. Not crazy about the movie but the fashion and make-up are pretty cool. In particular, Nick and Tom have a small party in NY. Attending is the cousin of Tom’s mistress, wearing a deep and somewhat bright peacock green/blue dress. Her eye make-up includes the most incredible smoky and yet bright blue green shadows. Usually those shades are dusty, ashy, never quite rich and bright at the same time – but in The Great Gatsy, it was perfect..

Anne-Laure Avatar

oh, I also thought Clockwork Orange. It would have to be by a very edgy brand, I’m thinking of Make Up for Ever, with very contrasted saturated eye shadow and lipstick colours (black/white/red and of course orange), black aqua liner and of course incredible false lashes….

xamyx Avatar

I absolutely love the idea of A Clockwork Orange! However, I think a softer, more Mod set could accompany the vivid aspect of the collection. Of course MUFE would be my first choice, but if MAC could get it together in terms of quality, then I think they could pull it off, as well.

Gaby Avatar

The Devil Wears Prada…the eyeshadow on Emily Blunt looks so awesome! The makeup on Elizabeth Banks’ character in “The Hunger Games” is vibrant and different (would make for a good costume makeup).

Lizzi Avatar

I agree with everyone saying a Harry Potter collection, with four mini-collections, one for each house. I was a big Harry Potter fan growing up and I would have to get every piece of the collection.

Caroline Avatar

I think any Jean Harlow film could inspire a great collection …. all that art deco packaging and ruby red lipstick *sigh* As far as which brand would be a good bet to carry this off, I’d say either Guerlain or Laura Mercier – something classy and elegant.

Elise Avatar

I think beauty and polish companies missed out BIG TIME on “The Great Gatsby.” That is some seriously high-glam inspiration.
