* Played straight in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', where's God's angels will tell you take makeup is the work of the devil. Considering how much of a {{Jerkass}} God is in Shin Megami Tensei, though, you should take it with a grain of salt. Lucifer [[GodAndSatanAreBothJerks isn't much better, though]].

Considering how much a justified case, [[spoiler:as she was victim of a {{Jerkass}} God is GrandTheftMe from Ultimecia, and after regaining control, stop wearing it, as seen in Shin Megami Tensei, though, you should take it with a grain of salt.

* Major WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls villain Him always wears a lot of make-up, and he's basically the devil with lobster claws for hands. There is also the one-off villain Mask Scara who ran across the city covering everyone in make-up that wouldn't come off. When she came across the already made-up Him she dressed him in clown make-up.

A ForgottenTrope nowadays, but one that lasted for many centuries: wearing any form of "paint" on your face is a sign of evil, particularly dishonesty, more to be expected of the DeadlyDecadentCourt or ViceCity than any more wholesome place. Only an [[TheWickedStage actress]] or some such disreputable woman would self-paint, which is why "painted woman" is -- not a compliment. The FemmeFatale and TheVamp obviously use make-up, as part of their stock in trade is unnaturally good looks. ([[VanityIsFeminine The trope is rarer but stronger for men]].)

* Although heroic characters of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' are also seen wearing make-up in many illustrations the most prominent villainous examples would be Kars with his distinct eye-makeup and the multiple instances of Dio being portrayed wearing dark lipstick.

* A buttload of [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney movies]] do this, and some pretty recent ones as well! In most of these movies, the only person with makeup on is the villain; [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Evil Queen Grimhilde]], [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]], [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lady Tremaine]], [[Disney/TheRescuers Medusa]], [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella]], [[GenderFlip Ja]][[Disney/{{Aladdin}} far]].. [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]] takes this UpToEleven by squashing a sentient creature to produce lipstick, literally making her makeup evil.

* In ''Film/{{Elvira Mistress of the Dark}}'', Elvira checks into a motel and meets the cranky old motel owner. The owner's grandaughter then comes downstairs, only to be confronted by her grandmother, and be told that she will not wear makeup. Later in the scene, Elvira reassures the girl that she used to have the same problem with the nuns at the orphanage. (Of course, she was only 8.)

* The trope is played somewhat more [[LiteralMetaphor literally]] in ''Series/HorribleHistories'', where the dangerous nature of 17th and 18th century makeup has been touched on in a few skits. The ladies wearing makeup are just vain and oblivious to the danger, not evil, but the makeup itself is literally bad, because it's got things like lead or arsenic in it.
** The more standard take on this trope pops up in the Cromwell Christmas sketch, where Cromwell actually says almost as much ("Make-up is ''SINFUL!!''")

** Men and women wear UncannyValleyMakeup in "The Robots of Death". The makeup itself isn't evil but the degree to which it's modelled on robots is suspect, and drives home how decadent and dependent on technology that Kaldor City society has become.

* We reach some kind of singularity with the ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' film. The [[UnholyMatrimony two main villains]] are the CEO and spokeswoman for a cosmetics corporation. Granted, the company itself is mostly innocent (mostly).

Finally, make-up was also associated with various groups of Native Americans, so anyone slathered with brightly colored face-paint was likely to evoke TheSavageIndian, whether themselves Indian or not.
