What is Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star about?
The show sees ten aspiring make-up artists compete to be named Britain’s next make-up star and win a contract assisting some of the world’s top artists in the field.
Each week, the contestants are set a professional assignment to carry out in the real world, as well as a themed creative task at the Glow Up studio.
The two make-up artists who fail to impress the judges will then enter the elimination face-off – a “make-up skill drill” carried out under intense time pressure – to decide which one returns to the competition.
Who is presenter Stacey Dooley?
Dooley first rose to fame as a documentary filmmaker with her series Stacey Dooley Investigates on BBC3, exploring hard-hitting topics from sex trafficking and racism to homelessness.
She later told MailOnline: “It’s painfully predictable: there are always people who are desperate to put you in your one camp and never let you leave.
“The idea that you could be interested in the Yazidi community and also in lipstick blows people’s minds. It’s a really short-sighted Stone Age attitude; it’s boring, actually.”
On one of her reports in Mosul, Iraq, Stacey added: “I was getting out of the car and I could smell death; there were dead bodies on the ground and you had to walk relatively close to them because there were unexploded IEDs [improvised explosive devices] everywhere so you could only go in certain areas.
“But after all that, it seemed really important to be at home and enjoy some escapism. Anyway, I’ve earned my stripes; I don’t need to prove myself to anyone.”
She added: “We should celebrate make-up. It’s a lucrative industry; a massive employer.”
