His makeup changes throughout the entire movie.
look at all the white stuff he has on his face when he first appears. then look at him before Dr. Scott appears and the rest of the movie. his white face makeup has almost totally disappeared. Especially at the dinner and when hes singing "Better Wise Up Janet Wice". Note the close up of him during that song...just a few streaks of white and not a ton like in "Sweet Transvestite"

About that lipstick, that's not exactly something that could have been helped too much. The film was originally shot in black and white from the very beginning up until that scene. The only color was going to be from Frank's lips and then the rest of the scene was slowly going to go from black and white to color. All of the color from the beginning up until they get to the pink room was added in much later because 20th Century Fox hated the idea. On the DVD you can still watch the beginning in black and white, but the color comes back when Riff Raff opens the ballroom doors, revealing the Transylvanians, rather than on Frank's lips. Also, if you watch closely, you can see Frank's tattoos fade away and come back in the pool scene. They also change shape and place.
