Find out here: Recap: Face Off Season 5 Episode 9 - Mortal Sins
The sloth makeup (top one) was definitely my fave, conceptually and execution wise. Taaaaate you awesome miraculous creature.
Last week’s crazy creations for the Trick or Treat challenge! Tate’s skeleton is badass. Just saying :)
Excited for this week’s challenge: Living Art, on in 30 minutes. It looks very interesting. I wonder who will win this one :-?

Which was your favorite look?
Lon Chaney Jr. & make-up artist Jack Pierce 1943
Lon Chaney, his bag of tricks and just a few of his many faces - c. 1920s
London After Midnight (1927), He Who Gets Slapped (1924), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923), and The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) .
On the left, 44-year-old F. Murray Abraham in age makeup as 73-year-old Antonio Salieri in Amadeus.
On the right, 73-year-old F. Murray Abraham
An interesting comparison. It does strike the point that when doing an old age makeup, the artist must remember how the actor’s scars might look over time. I still think the elderly Salieri makeup is wonderfully delicate, but it looks as though his acne scars healed sometimes between the flashbacks and the confession.
The one thing I did like about Season of the Witch (not the George A. Romero cult classic but the Nic Cage cheesefest) was the makeup. The film takes place at the time of the Black Death (but also at the time of the Crusades (?!)) and thus has some impressively disturbing plague prosthetics. I particularly like the detail of the gangrenous fingertips on the dead farmer.
