** And of course, the cherry on this joke sundae is that the one time we see Mimi actually do makeup for another person, she does a very tasteful and restrained job. And of course, what department in the store did she first apply for? Cosmetics.

* The Wellies from ''Videogame/WeHappyFew'' wear white makeup to make it look like they're smiling. It works, sort of, but it's more a case of TechnicallyASmile. The Bobbies have it worse, they have a downright SlasherSmile.

** Another episode had a followup to the earlier "Mini Mimi" gag where the woman she hired for the prank reveals that she kept the look afterwards because it gave her Mimi's KavorkaMan powers.

* ''ToddlersAndTiaras'': The excessive make up that includes heavy eyeshadow, unnatural blush, fake lashes and a fake tan is specially unsettling since the girls of the show don't pass from the age of 10. This, combined with AgeInappropriateDress is the reason why many people criticize the show and many others watch it due to morbid curiosity.

* Theater makeup when seen up close can have this effect. Since the purpose is to make it easier to read facial expressions from a distance, it often heavily emphasizes the eyes, mouth, and cheekbones. Even the most diplomatic of people would have to say a stage actor up close looks a little overdone, and this only applies to the most standard look. Any time makeup is used to certain effect, such as making a young actor look older, invoking an animal-like look (see ''Theater/{{Cats}}'' or ''Film/BlackSwan''), or deliberately going Uncanny Valley to make a performer look like a corpse, puppet, etc., the creepy effect can be multiplied tenfold.

* 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.

* Spray tans have been known to produce this effect, creating a strange orange skin tone not unlike the [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory Oompa-Loompas]] mentioned in the {{Film}} section above. See [[Series/JerseyShore Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi]], Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), and Creator/DonaldTrump for examples..

* ''Series/TheItCrowd'' has one character who Roy says puts on so much makeup that when he breaks up with her will be like breaking up with TheJoker. They show her and his description seems accurate, especially when she starts crying and her makeup gets smeared.

* Website{{YouTube}}r '''Catie Wayne''' first rose to prominence with her original "character", Boxxy, a parody of the "scene" internet subculture. She later filmed a makeup tutorial on how to achieve Boxxy's [[ManicPixieDreamGirl deranged]] chic.
-->"What's important to remember about this step is that if [[AchievementsInIgnorance you're not any good at it, that's okay]] because Boxxy isn't either."

* Any attempt at bleaching dark skin usually has this effect. Instead of a natural caramel or honey complexion, ''all'' color gets washed out of the skin, and the end result tends to be unnervingly pale and corpse-like. One of the less controversial uses of bleaching creams is to even out skin ravaged by vitiligo (as was the case with Music/MichaelJackson), leaving afflicted people in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" position
