No denying, makeup transformations can be powerful experiences for both audience and actor.

CineFix is saluting artists throughout cinematic history with a montage of the top 10 makeup transformations of all time.
Some of these won’t be surprising — like Charlize Theron’s incredible transformation in her Oscar-winning role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. The makeup team had to airbrush her face with layers of tattoo ink and marble sealant just to get her to stop being attractive.
