* RealityIsUnrealistic: everyone in a film or television show is wearing makeup to some extent, to make them look natural under the lights.

* Played with in PowerRangersInSpace. One of the first things Astronema/Karone does after her HeelFaceTurn is ditch her wig(s) and most of her makeup. The Rangers certainly consider it an improvement.

** The Doctor's EvilCounterpart, the Master, is often associated with makeup, with the Delgado and Ainley versions wearing heavy {{Guyliner}}, the Simm version being shown applying it, and Gomez's "Missy" incarnation using a makeup compact as a weapon, as well as often being seen applying lipstick or doing her nails. The Master's gimmicks are disguises and HypnoticEyes, playing along with the 'beguilement' and 'deceitful' part of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* Mimi from ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' wore infamously garish makeup for which Drew often mocked her, and she was often a grade-A bitch. The trope is a bit [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]], however, in that the mocking was overall more because she ''was'' a bitch, rather than the fact that she was wearing makeup. Given the nature of the show, a similarly painted but nicer character probably would have gotten much lighter and more good-natured riffing.

* In ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', Charlotte is not the villain--she is not even particularly evil, but more SpoiledSweet. Nevertheless, the scenes where she puts on make-up emphasize her silly and vain side.

* 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.

* In the fifth 1980s ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake'' TV special, Sour Grapes' obsession with making the perfect perfume causes a huge, rotten-smelling cloud to form and threaten Strawberryland and the Berrykins, and she tries to capture and shake the scent out of the Berrykins to get it right.

* Asami Sato in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen initially meant to be a case of this when designed as a villain]], but ended up [[SubvertedTrope subverting it instead]]. She wears noticeable amounts of lipstick and eyeshadow, in contrast to her rival for Mako's love, the protagonist [[UnkemptBeauty Korra]]. This along with her [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver color scheme]], helps give the [[SheepInSheepsClothing false]] impression that she's a dangerous FemmeFatale.
** Two female antagonists play with the trope: Eska, the {{Yandere}} princess of the Northern Water Tribe, wears heavy purple eyeliner (which [[YourMakeupIsRunning visibly runs]] when she's [[WomanScorned gunning for her abused ex-boyfriend]]). And P'Li, the [[BombThrowingAnarchists Red]] [[RenegadeSplinterFaction Lotus's]] [[StatuesqueStunner 6'8"]] [[HavingABlast combustionbending]] [[TheBrute heavy artillery]], wears red-black nail polish, understated brick-red lipstick, and subtle black eyeliner. Both, however, are ''less'' blatant than the aforementioned good gal...and both are {{Dark Action Girl}}s with no hint of [[TheVamp vamp]].

* MakeUpIsEvil: One of the most insistent teachings of Maria's church is that make-up, fashion, and dresses are self-absorbing topics that serve only to invoke lust in men and keep women from God.

** The first scene sees the parish's priest mention fashion and dresses as a temptation established by [[{{Satan}} the Devil]] to lead the people of the real Church astray.
** In the second scene, Maria tries to avoid being in a picture to avoid thinking of her appearance, but her mother orders her to. Ironically, Maria's mother chastises her, not for lacking confidence, but for being too preoccupied with her appearance by not being preoccupied with her appearance. Faced with a family that will always see her as self-obsessed, Maria ends the scene on the verge of tears.
** In the fourth scene, Maria's mother smiles and tells Maria she can buy a dress with stripes for her Confirmation, as if that's somehow scandalous and cool for a mother to allow. She acknowledges that her standards are a little peculiar, but only in the context of decrying the fashion of the modern day.
** In the fifth scene, the parish priest pushes for Maria [[{{Confessional}} to confess]] that she's been attempting to stir lust in a boy she's been talking to, even though Maria knows that's not the truth. Still, it confuses her enough to want to totally cut contact with that boy, who happens to be her only friend as she goes through suicidal depression.

* Oddly inverted much of the time in the case of male wrestlers, with the likes of {{Sting}} and (usually) JeffHardy being faces, while the heels are barefaced ugly guys. Makeup here implies that the character is [[DarkIsNotEvil psychologically tormented and even vengeful, but ultimately heroic]]. Played straight with Tatanka and his (very brief) "vengeful Indian ghost" gimmick in WWE in the winter of 2006-2007--although Tatanka's spooky war paint was [[UnintentionallySympathetic so cool to look at that many fans didn't know he was supposed to be a heel]].
