List of Face Off episodes

The third season of the Syfy reality television series Face Off premiered on August 21, 2012[1] and ended October 31, 2012. The season featured twelve prosthetic makeup artists competing against each other to create makeup effects. In the finale, they were voted on by the public in a live broadcast on Halloween.[2] The grand prize for the third season was a position as a guest lecturer at the Make Up for Ever Academies in New York and Paris, a 2012 Toyota Prius v, and US$100,000.

It was won by Nicole Chilelli of Sacramento, California, who holds two Face Off records for being the first female to win and the first and only contestant to be eliminated and come back in the same season (then win).
