The spot­light is noth­ing new for real­ity show Face Off (2011-cur­rent) pre­sen­ter McKen­zie West­more. Her dad Michael and grandpa Monte were among Hol­ly­wood’s best make-up artists, while her claim to fame is play­ing Sheri­dan Crane in su­per­nat­u­ral soapie Pas­sions (19992008), which she says “was a lot of fun. I have a lot of good mem­o­ries”. Luck­ily McKen­zie hasn’t lost touch with the make-up world…

In April 2015 she launched her 1

make-up busi­ness The West­more Beauty Col­lec­tion, which makes get­ting that Hol­ly­wood look “a lit­tle eas­ier”.

The 39-year-old rides horses and 2

is a cer­ti­fied per­sonal trainer who “spe­cialises in kick­box­ing, yoga and per­sonal train­ing aer­o­bics”.

To top it off, she’s an or­dained 3

min­is­ter. She made the an­nounce­ment in Au­gust 2015 on Twit­ter with the post: “as u can see in #FaceOff100 I am now an or­dained min­is­ter! I can marry, bap­tize, ab­solve sin, you name it!” She was asked to marry cou­ples in the 100th episode of Face Off, in 2015.

Mu­sic is an­other thing that she is 4

fond of. “I love mu­sic. I was singing opera since I was seven, but my voice seems to re­ally fit coun­try,” she says.

She also knows how to con­nect 5

with the younger crowd, thanks to her 10-year-old son: “I’ll play videogames with my son Mad­dox, we both love play­ing Mine Craft,” she laughs.

Mad­dox is from McKen­zie’s mar6

riage to mu­si­cian Keith Volpone, whom she met on the set of Pas­sions in 2002 and mar­ried the same year. The cou­ple di­vorced in 2011 and she met her sec­ond hubby, pro­duc­tion de­signer Patrick Tatopou­los, dur­ing his stint as a judge on Face Off (from 2011 to 2014). They mar­ried in Oc­to­ber 2015.
