Makeup for men has always been present in the world of high fashion but has just recently become more artistic and conceptual. In addition to masked runway shows and editorials that draw inspiration from tribal traditions, this list also includes urban juggalo catalogs that reference alternative youth cultures with an appreciation for expressive clown makeup and hip-hop music.

Moreover, runway examples of gothic makeup for men are an homage to the popular subculture that has been around for decades. This list celebrates masculinity while simultaneously blurring gender lines. Whether opting for an androgynous aesthetic or celebrating a tribal inspiration, fashion's most recognized names are experimenting with masculine makeup and are proving that artistry does not only need to be displayed through clothing.
