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.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
“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.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Fans of the Hunger Games franchise went crazy for Cover Girl’s Capitol Beauty collection – 12 theme-based looks filled with fierce, metallic colors.
Designed with the traits of each Divergent faction in mind, Sephora’s large multi-piece kit had a little something for everyone.
Fifty Shades of Grey
With names like “Tease Me,” “Give In To Me,” and “Desire Me,” there’s no mistake about what Make Up For Ever’s Fifty Shades of Grey line intended.
MAC sold a line of cosmetics inspired by Disney’s 2014 hit film, Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie.
MAC made a 17-piece collection inspired by the fairy tale of all fairy tales.
Oz the Great and Powerful
You didn’t have to choose between a favorite witch with Urban Decay’s Glinda and Theodora palettes.
It’s only fitting that MAC honored the longest-running animated series with its 10-piece collection.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Revlon’s limited edition shimmering nail polish and lip gloss collection featured a spider web design on the cap.
Jem and the Holograms
The playful Sephora collection of this 80’s cartoon turned live-action movie might have been more popular than the movie itself.
