The eighth season of the Syfy reality television series Face Off premieres on January 13, 2015. The season features 15 prosthetic-makeup artists competing against each other to create makeup effects. This season has a theme of 'Return of the Champions'. The winning artist will receive $100,000, a 2015 Fiat and a VIP package courtesy of Kryolan Professional Make-Up to one of their 85 international locations.

The premiere will span two episodes.

Three former champions; Rayce Bird (Season 2), Anthony Kosar (Season 4), and Laura Tyler (Season 5); will return as coaches to the contestants. Each champion will select and coach a team of 5 contestants throughout the season. Once a coach's team has been eliminated, the coach will also leave the show.

Ve Neill returns as a full-time judge.
