these are classic rock bands, I've excluded back / death metal bands because it presents non interest!

make your choice by refering to the music and the gimmick

You forgot "The Residents", who get on stage using eyeball-masks.

I know he doesn't do it anymore (or at least, just in special appearences), but I casted my vote to Fish. There are still some lead singers that would go on and paint their faces like Simone Rosetti from "The Watch", the guy (don't remember his name really) from "The Musical Box, who happens to be very disturbing and grotesque since he impersonates Peter Gabriel by the number and I'm thinking the lead singer who happens to be a woman from Chilean band "Matraz".

there is something wrong with bands who paint their faces.  I suggest it is an underlying weakness in the music that they're trying to cover up.

I think they use it just for impression and also as a marketing tool in order to advertise what they sell (music)

After KISS got pretty popular, they stopped using the paint and whatnot and it made everyone really mad. So they've done it since.
