Despite of being vague for the past few seasons, theatrical makeup for men has made a triumphant return in the world of high fashion. F****** Young! Online's 'Under the Skin' editorial celebrates this revival and features experimental and visually striking looks.

The masculine beauty editorial highlights masked cosmetics that are created using faux hair, face paint and leather fragments. This photo series is lensed by Studio Peripetie and manages to blend together bold accessories with artistic makeup for men. Overall, 'Under the Skin' celebrates fashion's element of fantasy.

Though it has never really left, this somewhat forgotten notion can get lost through the fashion industry's pursuit of minimalism. Makeup for this story is courtesy of Holly Silius who also designs all of this editorial's creative and hand-crafted masks.
