Nicole Chilelli of Sacramento, California, was the winner of the season. 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, 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.
