"Face Off" returns for a seventh season of special effects makeup artists vying for a grand prize package highlighted by $100,000. Sixteen artists arrive in Los Angeles but quickly learn that only 14 move into the house. Two contestants are eliminated after the opening challenge of creating characters that represent either life or death. Throughout the season, the participants face challenges related to life, death, rebirth and mortality. Eliminations take place each week until the finale, when three artists compete for the grand prize. This season's judging panel includes returnees Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page along with a newcomer, Oscar-winning makeup artist Lois Burwell. McKenzie Westmore returns as host, and her father, Michael Westmore, once again mentors the contestants.
