Starting with what they mentioned in the book: a Tally has squinty brown eyes and frizzy hair (as an ugly); Shay has long, dark hair and olive-toned skin, and is skinny (again, at least as an ugly), Peris has brown eyes; Zane has dyed-black hair and either solid gold or gold-flecked eyes (they have been described as both at different parts in the book), and as tall as the Pretty Committee allows (I think it was two meters?); and David has a scar through one eyebrow and a "crooked smile".
What I pictured in addition: Tally's hair as being light brown; Shay with dark brown eyes; Peris as being tallish and having dark brown hair; Zane was thoroughly described enough in the book; and David as having a kind of messy hair cut, brown hair and eyes, built kind of like a monkey (in a good way), and I always pictured his scar on the left eyebrow.

Tally - How she was on the cover, as a Pretty I saw her with very dark brown hair and bangs, since it was mentioned that she got the "Cleopatra look" or something to that effect.
Shay - For some reason I pictured her as me.
Peris - I pictured him with slightly curly brown hair and brown eyes
Zane - Zayn Malik -.-
Cable - I imagined her to look like my sixth grade history teacher, with semi-longish blonde hair, dark brown, almost black, eyes that were at so much of an angle that she almost looked like an alien
David - I pictured him as Gale from The Hunger Games, which is basically Liam Hemsworth but with darker skin (and of course David had a scar)

I imagined Tally from here with brown hair reaches a that reaches her, chin with brown eyes and bangs.
 I imagined Shay straight or wavy black hair. I can't remember which.
 I imagined David with curly black hair and tan skin.
I imagined Dr cable  With long black hair in a ponytail.

Uglies:
Tally - Brown straight hair parted down the middle, brown/hazel eyes
Shay - For some odd reason my idea of shay is based on a video game face i saw once. Dark green eyes, curly frizzy black hair, tan-olive skin tone.
David - brown shaggy hair, brown/hazel/green eyes
Dr. Cable - She changes everytime I read the series. Not sure why. Right now it's black/dark brown hair with grey streaked through it, black eyes, and pale skin(though as she is a special she SHOULD have darker skin as the books say..)
Peris - Light strawberry blonde hair, brown/hazel/green eyes.
(just noticed i have a lot of brown/hazel/green in here.. default eye color in my head woopsy)

Pretties:
Tally - Auburn wavy hair, green eyes
Shay - Deep brown curly hair, brown/*almost* red eyes

Seconded. I always figured Tally had bigger eyes though...(even compared to manga-style)

It did mention on several occasions in the first book that Tally had small and squinty eyes.
