Face Off To Feature Trek Makeup


Tonight on Face Off, three Star Trek makeup artists responsible for Klingon makeup from Star Trek: The Motion Picture through Star Trek Into Darkness are competing on Face Off.

Face Off, a “competition/elimination series” features “special effects make-up artists” who “participate in elaborate challenges for a grand prize and the honor of being Hollywood’s next great effects artist.”

The makeup artists include Ve Neill (Star Trek The Motion Picture), Michael Westmore (Star Trek: The Next Generation), and Neville Page (Star Trek Into Darkness).

Their challenge is to “take the retro aliens that they made for the foundation challenge and evolve their design to a more modern aesthetic that you might see in one of today’s sci-fi film franchises.”

Face Off airs today, September 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
