Season six of the reality makeup competition series Face Off premieres tonight, and Syfy is billing it as the “boldest and most extreme season to date.”
We caught up with one of the show’s judges, makeup artist Ve Neill, to find out what to expect.
“Everybody is going to be really surprised. I think we have some amazing artists this year,” said Neill, who called in from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay set — she’s served as makeup department head for all of the Hunger Games movie adaptations – in Georgia. “So many of the artists knocked it out of the park. They did incredible creations, far beyond anything we’ve seen before on the show. It’s going to be a great season.” The newest crop of Face Off contestants are competing for $100,000 in cash, a VIP vacation from sponsor Kryolan Professional Make-Up, and a 2014 Fiat.
Now that she’s wrapped filming Face Off, Neill told EW that she’s consumed with work on the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. “It’s going to be pretty spectacular. Julianne Moore is on with us now as President Coin and she’s great. We have quite a few new characters who’ve joined us,” she hinted. “They’re all wonderful to work with. Jennifer [Lawrence] and Josh [Hutcherson] are absolute dolls. It’s nice to have a group of actors who enjoy coming to work.”
Read on to see what else the makeup artist had to say about the new season of Face Off and the next installment of The Hunger Games.
