Sorry screenwriters, but when we’re watching our favorite TV shows, we pay attention to so much more than just the plot. And while wardrobe is obviously an important part of character development, we can’t just ignore the amazing makeup looks some of our favorite TV heroines have sported. From Morticia Addams’ luxe gothic vibes to Olivia Pope’s flawless face, here are 19 ladies of TV whose makeup collections we’d love to get our hands on.
Because nothing improves a frown quite like a deep, berry lipstick.

Angela Chase, My So Called Life
Fresh-faced Angela Chase isn’t afraid to try out new things, so we think she’d definitely be a fan of this pretty lilac eyeliner.

Mindy Lahiri, The Mindy Project
With all the stress of running an OBGYN practice, it’s amazing that Dr. Lahiri maintains such a healthy glow. But we suspect she’s got a solid, long-lasting blush in her collection to help her out.

Jeannie, I Dream of Jeannie
Product: M.A.C. False Lashes Mascara
How does a girl who lives in a bottle have room for her makeup stash? We’re still not sure, but we sure are envious of those lashes.

Jackie Burkhart, That 70s Show
Product: NCLA Top Down, Nail Up! Nail Wraps
Jackie’s certainly not one to shy away from standing out, so those nail wraps would make a groovy addition to any of her colorful ensembles.

Marcia Brady, The Brady Bunch
Product: Diorskin Nude BB Creme
We all know that Marcia swears by brushing her hair 100 strokes per day, but how does she keep her skin so fresh and dewy? We’re guessing some airy BB cream might be the answer.

Audrey Horne, Twin Peaks
Product: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
No matter how much trouble this smalltown girl gets herself into, her brows somehow always remain perfectly arched (with just the right amount of definition, we may add).

Elena Gilbert, The Vampire Diaries
Product: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette
Smoky brown eyeshadow accentuates this vampiress’ signature seductive gaze.

Kim Kelly, Freaks and Geeks
This rebel’s makeup collection was definitely way darker than sheltered Lindsay Weir’s. Plus, she taught us that a look is never complete without a healthy dose of eyeliner.

Kelly Kapowski, Saved by the Bell
Trendsetting Kelly Kapowski would so be onboard with nail art--especially if it featured her locker pals.

If you’ve watched even an episode of Arrested Development, you know that this Bluth isn’t afraid of a little shimmer and definition.

Cece Parekh, New Girl
Product: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
The secret to maintaining super plump lips? A sugar scrub.
Elaine Benes, Seinfeld
Product: Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tint
This New York City gal is one smart lady--but that doesn’t mean she can’t look good too. A subtle lip stain adds just the right amount of oomph with zero fuss.

Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy’s smoky eyeshadow somehow stays in place all the while she’s out slaying vampires--and we think that a good primer has something to do with that.

Olivia Pope, Scandal
While she’s out fixing everyone else’s problems, Liv still manages to look like she got a full night of sleep--all thanks to a solid concealer.

Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl
Always a fan of the classics, this UES queen bee understands the power of a quality red lipstick.
