Michael Westmore is the official contestant mentor on Syfy's reality SFX competition series "Face Off."

A world-renowned Hollywood makeup artist, Michael Westmore is a member of a makeup dynasty that dates back to Hollywood's golden age. Since 1917, almost every major studio had "a Westmore" supervising their makeup departments. Michael's career has not been without its rewards as he has been the recipient of a record 42 Emmy Nominations and gifted with 9 statuettes. The Motion Picture Academy has honored him with four nominations and the Oscar in 1986 for his artistry on the film "Mask," starring Cher and Eric Stoltz. His artistry has also been recognized around the world.

While supervising the last 18 years of "Star Trek," he turned his attention to writing articles and books on cosmetics and their application. He has spent the last 2 ½ years department heading and designing the largest makeup project ever to be filmed in India. Michael is now penning his biography, which includes an account of the wonderful years he spent with the faces of Elizabeth Taylor, Robert DeNiro, Bette Davis and Sylvester Stallone.

The Westmores' outstanding contributions to the film industry were recognized on October 3, 2008, when Michael and his family were honored with a Star ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard's famous Walk of Fame.

Michael is also the proud father of "Face Off" host, McKenzie Westmore.
