* In ''Film/DaftPunksElectroma'', this is the unfortunate result of the main characters' attempt to [[BecomeARealBoy Become Real Boys]]. The prosthetics might have even worked, were they not applied over Music/DaftPunk's [[CoolHelmet signature helmets]], which made the faces way too large and obviously fake. Also, the bit where they [[BodyHorror melted under the heat of the sun]] really didn't help.

* In ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'', Count Olaf has a group of henchmen that help do his bidding. In his group, there are two women, with white powder all over their faces, and they are never depicted without the face powder.

* DavidBowie's more exotic looks tend to fall into this territory: consider Ziggy Stardust, the Pierrot clown in the "Ashes to Ashes" video, and the characters in the ''1. Outside'' booklet. When he did some self-parody as the BritishRockStar Screamin' Lord Byron in the ShortFilm ''Jazzin' for Blue Jean'', he made sure that "Mr. Screamin'" used such makeup too, with full-face, metallic makeup complete with painted-on shadows that give him the look of a living painting.

* Many makeup artists on Instagram try to go out of their way to avoid this and look as natural as possible. But trends such as advanced contouring, overlined pouty lips, heavily filled eyebrows in a perfectly angled shape, and RealIsBrown neutrals applied to all skintones, tend to have this effect anyway.

** Lampshaded in ''When bad videos happen to good artists'', as CarrotTop refers to ChristinaAguilera's rather... unfortunate looks in ''I turn to you'' as: "Make-up by Tammy Faye, body by [[AllyMcBeal Callista Flockhart]]!"

* ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'' has Papa Lazarou. His face really is black and white like a minstrel, and he has to paint over it with makeup to appear normal. Well as normal as a demonic, polygamist blackface minstrel who runs a CircusOfFear, can look anyway. Papa learned the makeup skills to cover his minstrel face from his various wives.
* The porcelain doll look is used to a fantastic effect in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrtQCCT8kpk this advert]] for ''EastEnders''.

* In the ''AreYouAfraidOfTheDark'' episode "The Tale Of The Many Faces" a struggling model named Emma visits a strange woman named Madame Visage who gives her some powder that apparently helps her get a modeling job. The powder didn't really do anything, considering that Emma was pretty to begin with. (It does seem to almost hypnotize those around her, who will drop everything to mention how pretty she is.) However, its revealed that Madame Visage is [[spoiler: a VainSorceress and the face powder has properties that keeps girls faces looking younger and the skin smooth. She wants the faces to be in peak condition so that she can steal them and use them as her own face as a way to keep herself looking younger.]]
** Another AYAOTD episode called "The Tale Of The Mystical Mirror" features another VainSorceress named Mrs. Valenti who hires only in her words "beauties" to work in her clothing boutique and she is later revealed [[spoiler: to regularly kill young girls in a ritual to keep herself eternally young and beautiful while she was actually centuries old.]] She gives her employees a compact filled with makeup, and she makes sure to keep her "youthful" face covered with so much makeup that her face looks like its made of plastic and she appears rather StepfordSmiler-ish.
