Face Off: See the makeups from the finale's cliffhanger (PHOTOS)
The two-part Face Off finale ended with a cliffhanger, as the final three contestants were tossed a twist that ramped up the stress factor.
Instead of taking their makeups to the Face Off Reveal Stage, Ben, Nora and Evan were in for a big surprise. For the first time ever, their creations would become the focus of a short film to be directed by former judge Patrick Tatopoulos.
As is typical with Face Off finales, the last three standing were teamed up with previously eliminated contestants to help them complete the final task. Here's how the teams ending up breaking down, with a look at the sketches for their short film's two characters.
Nora teamed with Jasmine and Meg for her short film, The Prey.
Ben teamed with Jordan and Scott for his short film, Resurrection.
Evan teamed with Kevon and Stevie for his short film, Quarantine Zone.
It's no surprise that Evan selected Kevon to be on his team, either, because the two of them have known each other for years. How? Kevon told us all about it in our exclusive interview with him a few weeks back, which you can read in the link below.
Makeups tested under lights
After completing their "Last Looks" portion of the challenge, each of the contestants was given the opportunity to see how their makeups looked under the set lights. With advice from Tatopoulos, they would be able to fine-tune their creations to his directorial desires.
Here's how each of the final makeups looked on camera for the first time when they were evaluated onset.
The biggest concern for Ben was the fact that one of his characters wasn't complete. You'll notice in the image below that the creature pictured on the right is missing a total back paint job.
Tatopoulos was very impressed with her overall characters. He didn't have many critiques of the female creation, but did suggest the male be given a bit more green.
Evan, clearly, was the worst off when his makeups were tested under the set lights. Tatopoulos wasn't impressed with either of them. Neither was Evan himself, for that matter.
The good news for Evan? There's yet another twist.
To be continued...
Instead of moving to start improving on their characters, the final three were thrown another curve ball. "Your freshly updated scripts now include a third character that you'll be making for your short films," host McKenzie Westmore revealed. Many viewers were very surprised by the cliffhanger.
