Their imagined appearances don't look like anyone in real life. When I read books, I generally give people pretty generic faces, making them different from one another with hair, skin color, clothes, and personality.
Rex: Having a tall appearance yet not actually 6/7 feet tall. Very thin, very pale, black shaggy hair and dark clothes. In the beginning, typical black framed glasses.
Melissa: Average height, on the thin side but having curves. Wore a long, black, long-sleeved dress. Strait black hair of varying height, normally a tad longer than armpit-length. Non significantly colored eyes, very pale skin.
Dess: Shorter than melissa, and also thin. Shorter black hair, but lower than shoulders. I sometimes pictured her with brown hair (hey, everybody's hair dye washes out sometime, right?) She wore dark clothes as well but more punk-ish, with jeans and (some!) metal chains. She was pale as well, but not as naturally so as Rex and Melissa.
NOTE: I never pictured any of the midnighters as being scene! Especially Melissa, she wouldn't care enough about the world to make that kind of an effort.
Jessica: Dark red hair, mid-back length. Sort of a long face, but not in any significant or ugly way. Again, pretty plain. She wore normal people clothing.
Jonathan: Tall and thin, but shorter than Rex. Tan with shaggy brown hair. Wore normal clothes, mostly in shades of brown.

Oh and, none of them wore makeup.

Well, I don't think Melissa has Asian origins plus this girl seems a bit too kind to be Melissa (something in her look?). I picture her cold, with pale skin, as lavinsane said.
On the book cover, Jonathan is dark-haired but I picture him with brown hair because, with Jess, they are less gothic than the other midnighter (well, Jess is plain).
I think Dess has short black hair and punk clothes.. Well in fact I see the characters like lavinsane sees it.. I think.. =)

In my brain, Jess looks like Phoebe Strole (http://hellyesphoebestrole.tumblr.com/photo/1280/498311703/1/tumblr_l0et21euXO1qbrvxs) and Dess looks like Maimi Yajima (http://lh6.ggpht.com/thuongnhan1986/SJJe3c2mw8I/AAAAAAAAQVI/U4M_Axgzc-4/maimi1stpb-23.jpg).

Everyone else, I don't really know. I did have a specific Rex image for a while but then I forgot it. So, yeah. I always had the thought Jonathan was taller than Rex, though. And Jessica and Melissa were about the same height, with Dess being the shortest. I have no idea why.

Rex: Tall, skinny and pale, with black hair and glasses.
Jessica: Tall, with long black hair (I know she's a ginger, I can't see her that way though) and a few freckles.
Jonathan: Okay, really hot, with wide blue eyes and light brown hair.
Dess: Short, with shoulder-length brown hair, brown eyes.
Melissa: Totally fitting the "goth" stereotype.

Rex: Tall, pale and thin (almost gangly-looking; I picture him being kind of nerdy), with thick-rimmed glasses, messy black hair, wearing all-black cothes (jeans, boots, a t-shirt and long coat)
Melissa: Long dark hair (brown, but looks black under certain light) hooded sweatshirt with long sleeves (so she can cover her hands), long skirt and boots. Oh, and large DJ-esque headphones. :3
Dess: I pictured her wearing pretty much the same stuff as Melissa, although more silver accessories (bracelets, necklaces, all of which have their own thirteen-letter name). For hair, short, black and spikey.
Jess: Redheaded, freckles, pale skin and green eyes. Her hair is long, and I picture her wearing mostly pastels, jeans and sneakers.
Jonathan: Dark skin and short hair, tall (I picture him being the tallest of the group), well-built, and his clothes give-off sort of a subtle bad-boy vibe (if that makes any sense).

That figures, since it's nothing like how I imagined them...

I have a pretty... active imagination. Especially when it comes to imagining how people look.

Mine is active, too. It just often doesn't follow what's written in the book.
