Laura Tyler from "Face Off" is one of the contestants in Season 5 of the Syfy reality special effects make-up artist competition series. She previously competed in Season 3. She is a freelance special effects makeup artist with expertise in prosthetic application, sculpting, airbrushing and painting. She is from Orlando, Florida.

Season 5

If anything, Laura has become an even more competitive and passionate contestant since being a cast member on the third season. She returns for the new season armed with the double-barreled reputation for being an excellent makeup artist and knowledgeable connoisseur of pop culture and cult classics. For the past year, since being on the show, she has used her home base in Orlando, Florida, to secure freelance makeup work. She has worked at Universal Studios' Sea World, and has recently begun working for Ripley's Believe it or Not's international warehouse, painting and creating wax figures and oddities for their museums around the world.

Her goal, besides winning this new season of "Face Off," is to develop her skills enough to be on par with the show's judges so that she may one day work beside them on major motion pictures. Her favorite movie with special effects is "Predator."

Season 3

When she watched "Predator" as a little girl, Tyler thought the monster was extremely cool. Fascinated by the reality of the creature, she knew she wanted to begin a career in special effects. Laura grew up as an only child to a single mother. She went to an art magnet high school where she honed her sculpting skills. She is meticulous when it comes to getting projects done and often too critical of her own work. She is competitive, self-admitted fan-girl, a sci-fi nerd, and considers herself a jack of all trades when it comes to the makeup world.
