* Creator/MerylStreep as the Witch in ''Film/IntoTheWoods''. Like Thompson above, she said it took more makeup to make her look beautiful later in the film than to make her look ugly for the majority of her screentime.

* Angela Bettis as the title character in the [[MadeForTVMovie TV remake]] of ''Film/{{Carrie 2002}}''. Drab clothes, messy hair and something about not washing her face or anything definitely hid any beauty that she had, making it that much more special when [[SheCleansUpNicely she went to the prom]].

* Ana Maria Orozco, the original Betty in ''YoSoyBettyLaFea'', especially when compared with her [[UglyBetty Anglo counterpart]] who was HollywoodHomely at worst. The Colombian producers went the whole nine yards on transforming Orozco: no makeup, bad haircut, the ugliest glasses possible, orthodontics... they even hired an expert to choose specifically the most unflattering colors and styles to dress her, then the writers incorporated that knowledge on the script to justify and explain her eventual makeover and her business plan.

* Some well-applied zombie makeup was enough to make the incredibly handsome JamieBamber look utterly horrible during a guest stint on GhostWhisperer. There's also his appearance on {{House}}, where he starts out looking like his usual gorgeous self, but his looks worsen as his condition does--yellowing skin, bulging eyes, etc--until finally, the site of him laying on a bed wearing nothing but boxer shorts is completely undercut by the fact ''his skin is peeling off''. Quite jarring considering that he's usually MrFanservice in whatever he's starring in.

** Similarly, he wore extensive prosthetics and makeup (including a cap to simulate a receding hairline) to play Whitey Bulger in ''Film/BlackMass'' and as a result is barely recognizable.

* In the Ember Island Play in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', this is taken UpToEleven, since every single actor playing one of the show's main characters is less attractive than the real person.
