Facial muscles are a group of striated muscles that, among other things, control facial expression and are innervated by the facial nerve (CNVII). In contrast, the nearby eyelid retractor muscle and masticator muscles are innervated by the oculomotor (CNIII) and mandibular branch of trigeminal nerve (CNV), respectively.
