One of the most amazing TV show press kits ever landed on our desks this morning—from Syfy
, promoting season three of its amazing makeup reality show, Face Off
Um, have you ever watched this show? We just got sucked into an hour of compulsively clicking through Face Off transformation clips on YouTube.
Face Off sees a group of special-effects makeup artists competing, week after week, in a series of elaborate challenges. As in, they make people go from this (left), to this (right):
Is your mind blown yet?
We know the Syfy channel is not one most fashion folks have programmed into their DVR, but check it out—the second season of Face Off broke all Syfy original programming records, and became the most-watched unscripted telecast in all Syfy history. And, no wonder, really—the befores and afters are incredible.
Check out this reel from season two:
Season three of Face Off will premiere August 21st with brand-new panel judge Neville Page, who was the "Lead Creature Designer" (um, best business card title ever) on Avatar,
the Character Designer on Prometheus
, Creature Designer on The Amazing Spider-Man
, and Lead Creature and Character Designer on JJ Abrams' Star Trek
We're excited to see the contestants try to impress this guy.
Back to the press kit that we got today. We were super-excited to open it up and find it full of Make Up For Ever
products—a 12 Flash Color Case
(this is something we've seen in tons
of pro makeup artists' kits) with colors that can be used on your eyes, face, and lips, and a pair of "Gina" black swoop eyelashes
. Turns out? Make Up For Ever is Face Off's official makeup partner for season three!
We're so excited to try out these products! Next time you see us, you might not recognize us because we'll look like this:
