As far as I can tell it's pretty simple. From the distance small details of the image blur into a single image in your eye or brain. When you get closer you start to see details which make the image scary.

It's pretty similar to the effect of being drunk and seeing an ugly face as pretty. But in this case the blur is done by alcohol, not by distance.

Makeup works the same way, evening out irregularities of the face.

I'm just speculating here. There may be more than just this involved.
