Hi Kkinley2,

It appears that you're experiencing a malfunction with the Face ID feature of your iPhone X. I want to help you get back to easily unlocking your device.

For help with Face ID, please follow along with the steps in this article:
Get help with Face ID on your iPhone X - Apple Support

First thing it'll have you do is update your iOS Version to 11.1.1 to ensure the latest software. Make sure you have a backup and do that first:
Update the iOS on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

Follow the steps up to, and including, resetting Face ID.

Let me know if that helps. Tell me more about how Face ID has stopped working if the issue is still occurring. List any errors or messages you receive.

Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities.
