That's why I have a problem withthe scene at Loeb's memorial where Joker was in police uniform and you can see his face. Though Ledger looked creepy. It remnded me too much of "Maniac Cop". Kind of wish he wore a disguise for his face instead. Seeing his face for a few seconds sort of takes away from the mystique of what Nolan and co. trying to with him, imo.
I'm sure all it was is that since you never see Ledger's face until the end of the scene, that they just didn't bother putting the make-up on. Plus, to fake us out, Ledger's hair gets progressively greener until it's revealed that the Joker was there the whole time.
