Note: Last Week's Recap
An all new Face Off airs tonight so in anticipation, here's what I thought of last week's episode! Host McKenzie Westmore met the artists first for a foundation challenge, judged by Oscar-winning makeup artist Robin Matthews (Dallas Buyers Club, Ender's Game). The challenge? They had to create their own tribal warrior makeup inspired by a unique weapon. The catch? The makeup wasn't just covering the face but the entire upper body! The artists had two hours to fight for immunity. My favorites were Meg and Ben. The winner went to Scott. I loved Scott's concept and his makeup but I would have loved to have seen him use darker colors. Anyway...
The spotlight challenge! They took it to the freak show this week as the final seven took a side show act as inspiration to create the fantastical character that would wow audiences. They took a spin on a wheel to get their side show inspiration. Meg's spin landed on Inside Out Car, Nora got Lobster Larry, Stevie's spin landed on Icicle Irma, Ben got The Human Peacock, Evan got Moon Girl, Jordan got Elephant Lady, and Scott got Twisted Tom.
On the reveal stage, Scott's was great. I loved Nora's face makeup. I loved Stevie's concept as well as Evan's and also Ben's. Scott, Jordan, and Stevie were safe. The judges' top looks were Nora and Ben with Ben coming out as the winner. The judges' bottom looks were Meg and Evan with Meg being eliminated noooooo! She was such a joy to see this season. My favorites are dropping like flies. Aghh. I am so happy that Meg was on this show and was given a platform to show her work because I am forever a fan of her work and can't wait to see more and see her names in the credits in the future. It's only a matter of time.
Eliminated This Week: Meg
Face Off airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Syfy.
