* Letty Chubb in the ''TeenageWorrier'' book series had several of these. She has dyed her hair orange, ruined her mother's expensive ballgown by stepping on the hem while wearing heels, broken out in a rash because of her allergy to perfume, and more.

* On ''Series/{{Friends}}'' Ross used too much of a dental bleach agent, causing his teeth to glow in the dark under his black light and scaring off his date.
** In a different episode he manages to get two applications of fake tan on the front of his body and none on the back - after repeated attempts to rectify this he has ''eight'' applications on his front and still none on his back.

-->'''Reba''': Now we know why the makeovers were ''free''.
-->'''Lori Ann''': My last car didn't have this much paint in it.
* One time it was used on FamilyMatters, and it had nothing to do with the idea that Laura was incompetent in applying the makeup. Rather, the blameworthy party was a mail-order scam that Laura had fallen for: She was supposed to be a salesgirl for the makeup, but when it arrived it was horribly defective.

* ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' has Leela attempting to do her own eyeshadow and lipstick when her one eye is temporarily blinded.
** When she gets a second prosthetic eye, she again has trouble with eyeshadow, although Amy is on hand to help her out.
* 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, practically forcing Daria to do it despite her protestations that she was going to screw it up.

** In the sequel series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', the {{Tomboy}}-ish main character has absolutely no interest in make-up. In one episode she is faced with....DUN DUN DUN, a powder room. Sinister music plays as she suspiciously picks up the puff, only for powder to explode all over her face.
* This is, predictably, the effect of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]]'s "makeup gun" as demonstrated on Marge.

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' - Tina falls in with the new girl at school, who insists on makeovers. She puts a lot of makeup on the two of them in the girl's room - when they step outside, the two Pesto brothers see them and yell "AAAA! Bathroom clowns!"

* In the 1935 ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' cartoon, "For Better Or Worser", both Popeye and Bluto have been fighting to take Olive to get married. Prior to meeting up with them both, she put on an excessive amount of makeup and false eyelashes. Neither of them saw what she looked like because she was also wearing a veil the whole time. As they were both fighting to take her to the Justice of the Peace, she ended up getting banged up along the way and by the end of the cartoon, Popeye finally lifts the veil to find that Olive is looking pretty ghastly, causing him to head for the hills.

* 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 cracked up at the sight.

The Path To Manhood has many obstacles. To prove his worth, a youth may have to complete the TrainingFromHell, [[ItsPersonal avenge the deaths]] of those dear to him, [[SexAsRiteOfPassage carve some notches on his bedpost]], wrestle a bear, or become embroiled in a "manly project" [[MachoDisasterExpedition predestined to go wrong]].

* Tracy Beaker, of Jacqueline Wilson's ''The Story of Tracy Beaker'', ''The Dare Game'', and ''Starring Tracy Beaker'' has an example of this in the first book, with an on-the-money illustration by Nick Sharratt. However, she doesn't do it for a boy, but because an author is coming to her care home and she wants to make an impression. [[spoiler: She does. The author, Cam Lawson, later becomes her foster mother.]] The worst part is that she doesn't even realize why people are laughing...
