Face Off: Our Top Looks - Season 8, Episode 7

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 23:40

What happens when you put a group of makeup artists with minimal bodypainting experience in the woods with a bunch of nude models? One of the more ... interesting episodes of Face Off, one that proves great creativity can come from being forced out of your comfort zone ... way out of your comfort zone.

Equally interesting was just how much we differed from the judges' calls on this one, which had the artists teaming up in pairs to create a queen insect and companion character. Take a look at all the buzz.

Season 8, Episode 7: "Queen Bees"

Top Looks (Judges):

1. Julian & Logan (Cuckoo Wasp)
2. Emily & Jamie (Honey Bee)

Our Top Looks:

  1. Adam & Rob (Ladybug)
    This was a Bottom Look for the judges. We liked - nay, loved - the "Hey, let's imitate the Sistine Chapel with insects" sheer creative audacity of it all. For what Rob and Adam set out to do, they succeeded.

  2. Kelly & Ben (European Hornet)
    These two don't work well together on a personal level, that's for sure, but we liked what they came up with creatively on this one. Yes, there's a sense of visual incongruence, but it also makes for an intriguing, mysterious image. We say huzzah! (Buzzah?)
