Dan Hyman stars in 'COLD,' a F***** Young! Online editorial by photographer Michael Furlonger. Furlonger captures the mystical portrait series while joining forces with wardrobe stylist Sylvester Yiu, and makeup artist Claire Mulleady.

Using MAC Cosmetics products, Mulleady creates textured, face paint looks that are embellished with star accents. Model Dan's wardrobe is kept sleek, and tailored, opposing the more conceptual aesthetic of the makeup that he is sporting. Additionally, hair styling for COLD is courtesy of Rytua Saiga who opts for a wet and slick look.

Fusing tailored menswear with theatrical makeup, this photo series embodies a mystical visual theme. While minimalism ruled the fashion industry in past seasons, the return of maximalism has seen a resurgence recently, being embraced not only in the realm of garment design, but also by photographers and beauty artists alike.
