The 40-year American hell raiser looked virtually unrecongnisable when pictured in Paris during a night out with his girlfriend.
He was dressed completely in black as he and Evan Rachel Wood, 22, went to Le Zenith concert hall in the French capital.
It was a world away from his usual striking style of white painted face, coloured contact lenses, thick black eye-shadow and dark red lips.
Manson has said he never takes his thick make-up off even when he goes to bed and simply plasters more on each morning.
He had claimed that only when he shaves does the white foundation get disturbed.
