Blake Ballard models abstract makeup looks for F****** Young! Online's latest exclusive. The newcomer from Ursula Wieldmann agency is captured by photographer Ahmad Barber's lens and is outfitted by wardrobe stylist Kwame Waters.

Blake poses in a wardrobe that matches his abstract makeup and dons floral tops that are paired with matching face adornments. The model also pulls off army-inspired menswear staples and sticker-constructed garments that are more conceptual in their feel.

This editorial's abstract makeup is the work of beauty artist MARAZ who showcases his artistic talent. Contrary to past seasons, makeup artistry has become more elaborate and is no longer geared toward minimalism. In addition to feminine cosmetics, men's makeup is on the rise and is more artful than ever before.
