a girl with too much make-up

Postby Lugre » Sun Nov 07, 2010 11:43 am

I need an adjective which means something like "with too much make-up", can you think of anything like that?

I suspect that overmade-up doesn't exist {-: .

Thanks, however I'm not sure it fits here:

That <?> whore, who had wanted the last handful of change in my pocket, had also already given it up.

Just one of several possibilities but the first that comes to mind :-)
