Forget model muses. For his first-ever makeup line, launching August 9 at Sephora, movie buff Marc Jacobs tapped into his favorite films and the characters who have touched him the most. "It just became a natural way to name the colors," he says of his chic lipstick, nail lacquer, eye shadow, and more. "I hope that these influences help people relate to the collection and make it more personal." Ready for your close-up?

1. The Virgin Suicides
Lux, a bold yellow nail enamel ($18; sephora.com in August), is named for Kirsten Dunst's role as the tragic teen beauty in Sofia Coppola's dark drama. "It's provided a lot of inspiration over the years," says Jacobs.
3. The Royal Tenenbaums
Gwyneth Paltrow's turn as a former prodigy captivated Jacobs. "Margot Tenenbaum was very moody," he notes. Hence, a versatile nude gel lipstick aptly named Moody Margot ($30; sephora.com in August).
4. Funny Girl
Jacobs is gaga for Barbra Streisand's big-screen début. "It's one of the greatest musicals of all time," he says. This rosy buff polish named for the flick ($18; sephora.com in August) lets killer talons do the talking.
