With the (very exciting) news that MAC Cosmetics is set to launch a brand new range inspired by blue-haired muse Marge Simpson this autumn, we’ve started wondering which other cartoons should work their way into our make-up bags…
It’s a well-documented fact that this orange moggy hates Mondays (almost as much as he loves perusing the contents of the fridge – truly a cat after our own hearts) so who better to banish those pesky post-weekend eye bags? We think he’d make a mean concealer, possibly with a light lasagne fragrance.
Not only did the Princess of Power know how to work a metal headdress (no mean feat, as Lady Gaga will attest to) but she also did a good line in breaking the cardinal rule of ‘either big eyes or lips’ - working both false lashes and deep red lippy. Despite her blonde hair, she had some pretty black Scouse brows too, so we envisage a dark, dramatic palette for He-Man’s twin.
Admittedly we’re not sure what the sharp-tongued grunge-fan wore on her eyes – other than statement glasses and a look of distain – but she did rock a nude lip colour. Plus we’ve always been utter fan-girls over her edgy pal Jane (she of the severe haircut and multiple earrings, be still our teenaged hearts) who wore crimson lips and a sneer with aplomb.
Captain Planet and the Planeteers
Earth! Wind! Fire! Mascara! We all remember putting our mood rings together in the playground after watching this, and there’s surely a market in pretty lipbalm or solid fragrance rings themed around everyone’s favourite blue eco-warrior.
Because really there’s a gap in the market for some sort of mirror-nailfile-tweezer-hairdryer-straightening-polishing-buffing-lipliner-applicator, and if anyone could create one, it’s go-go-Gadget.
Farthing Wood Friends
Ok, not much scope for a cosmetics range here, but we still feel the need to bring them up whenever we can. We’re still not over when the newts burned to death, or the pheasants got shot! How was that a kids’ show? When will we stop feeling the pain?
