* Jemima, Caractacus Pott's daughter, did this in a NoodleIncident in the original book ''ChittyChittyBangBang''. She got into her mother's lipstick and tried it for herself, making her look as if she had smeared raspberry all over her face! When her mother saw the result, she was angry at first but [[CrowningMomentOfFunny cracked up at the sight]].

* Katara and Toph try out cosmetics after a day at the spa in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. The makeup doesn't look ''that'' bad, but it's still off enough to attract the attention of a trio of snooty girls. Toph and Katara respond to the criticism by [[CrowingMomentOfFunny dropping them into a river and washing them downstream]].

* Shortly after joining TheShinsengumi in ''PeacemakerKurogane'', Tetsunosuke gets jealous at Yamazaki Susumu, who does his spying work crossdressed as a beautiful woman.

* Happens in ''TenchiInTokyo'' when Ryoko applies make-up to her face by the pound. Everyone is startled but then laughs hysterically when they see her face (especially [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] [[TheRival Ayeka]], who's rolling on the floor laughing so hard she's crying at the sight!)

* In ''AsToldByGinger'', the heroine and her two best friends try to make themselves look beautiful for the school photo, by stealing Lois' (Ginger's mother's) cosmetics. Then, when they're found out and forbidden from using makeup, they follow a magazine's instructions for making "fake-up" out of household materials. The results are predictably disastrous, especially since the foundation was made from gravy.

* Delia Delfano is often a victim of this trope during the first season of ''Series/IDidntDoIt'', first when her mother forces her into beauty pageants in the episode "Fireman Freddy's Spaghetti Station." When Lindy and Jasmine see her turn around poorly made up, Lindy deliver's the perfect sympathetic response.
--> '''Lindy:''' Oh, honey... Boo-Boo.
