Some musicians use makeup to create an identity, a uniqueness to express themselves, it's also a good way to be different than other bands or artists, it's not always just a marketing gimmick, though, many artists have adopted the "mystical" make up...

Alice Cooper
Randy Newman
David Bowie
Peter Gabriel
The Cure
The Blue Men Group
Adam Ant

... and many others.

It's part of creating an icon, an image, a dream, being someone else.

I'm not convinced that an artist such as Peter Gabriel did it for a marketing gimmick, more for a theatrical expression of his songs, as a solo artist or with Genesis.
Keep On Drumming
