Kryolan announces official Make-up Sponsorship for Season 5 of Face Off

New York – Kryolan Professional Make-up is proud to announce that they will be the official make-up sponsor of Face Off, Season 5. Syfy’s critically-acclaimed hit reality competition series premiers Tuesday, August 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and features eight talented and up-and-coming special effects make-up artists will be competing against eight contestants from past seasons, a Face Off first. Artists will be provided with make-up exclusively from Kryolan Professional Make-up to bring each elaborate and innovative special effects creation challenge to life.

Contestants will compete with one another each week and will be whittled down until only three remain for the final makeup showdown. The winning artist will receive $100,000, a 2013 Fiat and a VIP trip from Kryolan Professional Make-up to one of their 85 international locations.

This season, contestants will be asked to create fully-realized characters that not only look camera ready for TV or film, but also tell a story specific to the challenge's genre, scene or world in the Spotlight Challenges. Season 5 challenges include creating a futuristic Frankenstein and his bride; a whimsical character inspired by Mother Goose nursery rhymes; a reimagined and modern version of a classic Halloween character complete with an articulating 'treat'; an original living art character inspired by Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art, Expressionism and Constructivism; and many more!

For the finale, the final three contestants will each create two lead characters from Swan Lake: a woman transforming into a swan and the sorcerer who casts the spell on her. These finale makeups will be put to the test in an epic performance by the Los Angeles Ballet.
