Clockwise from top left: Grace Gealey, Serayah, Kaitlin Doubleday and Gabourey Sidibe

The leading ladies of Fox’s Empire have inspired CoverGirl to release a makeup collection based on their looks.

The forthcoming Empire line will replicate the glamour looks of Serayah (who plays Tiana), Grace Gealey (Anika), Gabourey Sidibe (Becky) and Kaitlin Doubleday (Rhonda) on the show.

According to the YBF, Anika’s look is all about a fierce cat eye and dramatic red lips; Becky’s look is soft, with "shimmery bright lips"; Tiana has a statement look, with gold eye shadow; and Rhonda’s look is a smoky eye and nude lip with larger-than-life lashes.

“It’s a dream come true!” Serayah told Vogue. She said that being a CoverGirl and getting cast on a hit show were both specific goals of hers. “They were both on a vision board I made before I was on the show—now it’s all really happening.”
