* Jane suffers the hair-dying variety in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' episode "Dye! Dye! My Darling". It's a subversion considering that Jane basically expected, at least subconsciously, Daria to screw it up in order to pick a fight with her.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' uses an adult version of this as one of its many gags. A woman tries to apply makeup during the flight, but the plane keeps lurching around due to the troubles in the cockpit, causing her to smear the makeup all over her face. A shot of the passengers evacuating the plane at the end shows that she hasn't yet been able to clean it off.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* From ''Series/{{Reba}}'': During the first season, Reba and Lori Ann have a makeover once. They end up having more makeup on their faces than they'd like.
-->'''Reba''': Now we know why the makeovers were ''free''.
-->'''Lori Ann''': My last car didn't have this much paint in it.

* Lorenna in ''TheBrothersGarcia'' dons a lot of make-up at the start of the new school year against Sonia's wishes. The catastrophe comes when she must rush home and clean it off before dinner - she discovers it's waterproof.

This can happen to older characters too. It's a good way of pointing out the [[HollywoodGeek geeky/awkward girl]]; either she won't wear make-up at all, or she'll stick with a single look, unlike her more popular or practical colleagues. Expect [[HilarityEnsues hilarity to ensue]] if she decides [[BeautifulAllAlong it's time for a change]].

The path to ''womanhood'', on the other hand, seems limited to the correct application of hair products or... make-up. Frankly, sometimes you're better off with the bear-wrestling.

She'll put so much lipstick on that she ends up looking like [[MonsterClown an evil clown]]. Eyeshadow and blusher will be [[UncannyValleyMakeup laid on so thick]] that she resembles a Picasso knockoff. She misreads the instructions on the hair dye and ends up with her scalp on fire...or magenta hair. As for her eyebrows...well, you don't know what you've got until they're gone. She might realize the disaster straight away, or, if the writers are [[{{Buttmonkey}} really cruel]], she might think she looks great right up until she walks into a room only to have everyone kill themselves laughing at her.

* Shortly after joining TheShinsengumi in ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'', Tetsunosuke gets jealous at Yamazaki Susumu, who does his spying work crossdressed as a beautiful woman. Tetsunosuke grabs a spare kimono and borrows Susumu's makeup box, ending up looking more like a Kabuki clown than a lady, to the horror of innocent bystanders.
