When it comes to makeup, the fresh faces of models, actresses and singers alike often grace or inspire popular brands and collections.  But celebrities aren’t the only ones with entire beauty collections to their name.

CoverGirl recently announced a limited edition Empire makeup collection.  Inspired by Gabourey Sidibe, Serayah, Grace Gealey and Kaitlin Doubleday’s respective Empire characters (we’re gonna need Taraji to get her own collection, stat), the collection was announced mere days before the spring return of the hit Fox show.

But this isn’t the first time CoverGirl, or other beauty companies for that matter, created a line to celebrate a beloved show or film.  Check out these makeup lines and collections that have paid tribute to some of our favorite characters from the big and small screens.

“Light Side or Dark Side?  Which side are you on?”  It’s only fitting that Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of the most highly anticipated films in recent years, had its own limited edition makeup line with CoverGirl, featuring mascara, outlast nail polish and colorlicious lipstick.
