Face Off Episode Overview:
As the competition reaches the halfway point, tensions are high. The contestants enter the lab and meet McKenzie alongside six beautiful runway models dressed in haute couture. They are then introduced to their guest judge, head makeup artist for MAKE UP FOR EVER, Lijha Stewart. Over the next two hours, they create runway-worthy make up looks inspired by couture fashions. The next day, they arrive at the beautiful downtown lounge, The Edison, where McKenzie shows them a trailer of the brand new video game, Dishonored. The artists then learn that for their next Spotlight Challenge, they will create an original make up look inspired by one of the character classes in the video game and that their make up must include exaggerated proportions or distorted features. Over the next two days, these incredible make ups come to life in some of the most inventive and imaginative ways yet. It all leads up to an incredible showing at the Face Off reveal stage, where one artist wins the challenge and one is eliminated.
