* 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..

* Creator/HeathLedger plays SelfDemonstratingArticle/TheJoker in Film/TheDarkKnight and has his face painted in such a way to emphasis his GlasgowGrin and makes it appear that his makeup is peeling/dripping off.

* ''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

** Taken up a notch when special guest star Tammy Faye Bakker would play Mimi's mother, Tammy Bobeck, for two episodes.



* The late great Tammy Faye Messner. The woman's makeup would have scared the Joker.
** Not incidentally, she was cast as the mother of Mimi Bobeck on ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow''.

* In the later part of Creator/ToniMorisson's ''Literature/SongOfSolomon'', Pilate's granddaughter Hagar goes and buys makeup along with new clothes in the hope of impressing Milkman Dead so that he would find her attractive again. However, on her way home, her clothes and cosmetics get ruined in the rain, as her bags tear, so by the time Hagar returns home and tries all that stuff on, Pilate and her daughter Reba could see that her new clothes are ruined and her makeup is now so smeary that it makes Hagar cry until she catches a fever.

** Blind Mag's makeup in her first appearance, too. It's partly because of her UhOhEyes, but the heavy eye-makeup and impossibly long fake lashes don't help matters. Subverted, though, in that Mag is one of only two good-hearted people in the entire movie, and the makeup is probably imposed on her- when she's viewed in flashback before she was lured by GeneCo, her eye makeup looks much more natural.

* In ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'', the pre-transformation prince in the prologue has his face completely caked with powder and makeup and looks garish and creepy as a result. When he transforms back into a human at the end of the film sans makeup, he looks ''much'' better.
