The DistaffCounterpart of the LockAndLoadMontage. The heroine puts on her makeup and clothes while preparing for the Big Event. The key to the trope is that she applies her makeup with the same speed and seriousness as a soldier loading his guns - she's all business, and her business at the moment is looking good. May count as MundaneMadeAwesome.

Often juxtaposed with a standard LockAndLoadMontage. A FemmeFatale might even do both simultaneously. The rare examples of a male doing this tend to be PlayedForLaughs. Compare ThisMeansWarpaint and MakeoverMontage.

** Also with the Chimps - while the Zoosters are on their way, and the Penguins pillow-fight, the Chimps prepare their disguise as the King of Versailles - complete with Phil applying lipstick and popping his lips.

* The finale of season 6 of GameOfThrones opens with assorted characters getting dressed in preparation for [[spoiler: the trial of Loras Tyrell and Cersei Lannister]] with a sharp contrast between the elaborate clothes of the nobility and the old sack worn by the High Sparrow. The montage lingers on Cersei for longer than the others as she is fitted in a new [[DarkIsEvil black]] [[VillainousFashionSense leather and chains]] number because [[spoiler: she is about to have them all killed by blowing up the Sept of Baelor where the trial is taking place]].

* A very twisted parody of this occurs in the 2008 commercial for [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's]] Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights. In the advert, [[MirrorMonster Bloody Mary]] is shown preparing herself for someone about to summon her, by somewhat-doing her hair, filing her nails, and ''[[BloodLust using blood as her lipstick]]''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oy4Vt_rQCRQ Here's a link to the commercial]], but be forewarned that it contains a JumpScare or two.

* Used in ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' when the soldiers are applying drag to infiltrate Shan Yu's guard in the royal palace (set to a brief reprise of "[[IronicEcho I'll Make A Man Out Of You]]", no less!).

* Gender-flipped during the opening credits of ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar'', with Creator/PatrickSwayze and WesleySnipes performing it, ''fabulously'' of course. Clip is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-aUj4dRm-o here]]

* The opening credits to ''Film/DangerousLiaisons'' has a montage featuring both the main male and female characters. It looks like they are dressing for battle, and [[TheRenaissance they were]]

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/ZackAndWikiQuestForBarbarosTreasure''. When we first see Captain Rose, we see her glitzing herself up so she can look her best while defeating the Sea Rabbits. At one point she puts on her signature lipstick... and then puts some on her cheek to make it look like [[TribalFacePaint tribal face-paint]].
* Seen in the intro to ''VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarTwinBlueStarsOfJudgment''. The catch is that [[VillainousCrossdresser it's Judah]].
