Bon Jour !! I saw this sentence in your examples: Alice s'est maquillée. (Alice put her make-up on.) I don' t see the verb mettre (to put) ??
This question relates to:French lesson "Agreeing past participle with subject's gender and number with (+ être) verbs in Le Passé Composé"

There is no "mettre" in this sentence because the verb " se maquiller" already means "to put one's make-up on". You can't say "I made myself up" in English. (Well, you could, but it would mean something completely different).
