Why just stick with merch when you can rep your favorite band with some killer lipstick? We’ve scoured the web to find some the best looks that encompass the vibes of some of the most popular bands in the scene. Grab your favorite brushes and pay homage to your musical heroes with these bold makeup looks.

Twenty One Pilots

The Look: Cherry lips and bold liner

Beauty Inspiration: Monami Frost @monamifrost

Inspired by the fiery locks of our beloved Josh Dun, this look will have you feeling red hot. Start by creating a winged eye with a bold red liner, and then define the wing with a black liquid liner following the same line. Finish off the look with a bright red lip.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Creeper

Makeup Forever Aqua Liner in Iridescent Red

Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Black

Panic! At the Disco

The Look: Sophisticated femme fatale

Beauty Inspiration: Helen Anderson @helenanderz

Primp and polish like a true Victorian lady in this sophisticated look. For the eyes, pop on a pair of dramatic false lashes topped with two coats of mascara. Brush a generous amount of warm pink blush onto your cheekbones in an upward motion. Finish with a glossy peach lip.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in No. 12

Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes

CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Brick Rose

Black Veil Brides

The Look: Refined gothic

Beauty Inspiration: Raye Boyce @itsmyrayeraye

Black Veil Brides have been known to sport some pretty amazing makeup themselves, but their dark look may be a bit too daring for most to try. Instead, go for a toned-down version. Channel your inner Andy Biersack with matte black lipstick, big lashes and full brows.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Witches

Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara in Very Black

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer

Never Shout Never

The Look: Bold colors with a twist

Beauty Inspiration: Hanna Beth @Barbiebeth

Get a little colorful with a look inspired by the cover art for Never Shout Never’s most recent studio album, Black Cat. The focus here should be a bold, matte lip in any bright color. Keep your eye makeup minimal—use black eyeliner on your top lid and mascara on top and bottom lashes. Finish off the look with a flash tattoo if you’re feeling adventurous (Hanna Beth has her own line of them!)

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Sundae

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black

Hanna Beth X GLO TATTS® Metallic Tattoos

5 Seconds Of Summer

The Look: Light, fun and polished

Beauty Inspiration: Amanda Hendrick @msamandahendrick

This look is all about staying light and fun, just like the music from our favorite boys in 5SOS. Create a natural but polished look using peachy pink on the apples of your cheeks, and a neutral tone on your lips. Two coats of mascara on your top and bottom lashes will pull the look together.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Midi

Nars Blush in Orgasm

Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black

Bring Me The Horizon

The Look: Berry lips with a cat eye

Beauty Inspiration: Jade the Libra @jadethelibra

You’ll be knocking over tables with this look (just like frontman Oli Sykes). For a touch of drama, cover your lids with a bronze shadow with a bit of sparkles and top it off with a thick winged liner. Complete the look with deep berry lipstick on your pout.
