19 tv gals whose makeup bags we’d totally steal

    channeling the lightest + brightest.

    by · September 18, 2014

    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.

    Jane, Daria

    Product: Shien Cosmetics Silk Matte Lipstick in Cobra Lily

    Because nothing improves a frown quite like a deep, berry lipstick.

    Megan Draper, Mad Men

    Product: Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil

    This ’60s siren knows that lipliner is the secret to a long-lasting, perfectly colored kisser.

    Morticia Addams, The Addams Family

    Product: Sunday Riley Chameleon Lipstick

    Take a break from the classic red lip and choose a darker shade to channel this striking gothic beauty.

    Angela Chase, My So Called Life

    Product: Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Lilac

    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

    Product: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée

    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.

    Jessa Johansson, GIRLS

    Product: Ardency Inn Punker Crystal Studs

    This Bohemian babe is apt to try any off-the-grid beauty look, like these captivating skin gems.

    Kim Kelly, Freaks and Geeks

    Product: Loreal Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner

    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

    Product: Jane’s Tiny Things Saved by the Bell Nail Decals

    Trendsetting Kelly Kapowski would so be onboard with nail art--especially if it featured her locker pals.

    Lindsay Bluth Fünke, Arrested Development

    Product: Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights

    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

    Product: bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer

    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

    Product: Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in Radiant Touch

    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

    Product: Cailyn Cosmetics Merry Cherry Mineral Lipstick

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