Episode 6: Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star

Summary

The MUAs enter the world of special effects, as they are tasked with recreating looks from the smash hit crime drama Peaky Blinders - working at a prestigious make-up academy with guest judge, Peaky's Bafta-winning head make-up designer Loz Scathio. This week's Creative Brief is based on the seven deadly sins, and while one artist's gruesome looks bring out sloth, envy and wrath in very imaginative ways, one MUA's literal interpretation of greed falls flat.

Review

The first challenge for the remaining five MUAs (make-up artists) is to create realistic facial injuries – one an old scar, the other a fresh fight wound – for actors working on Peaky Blinders. Then they must create a look based on one of the seven deadly sins. Yes, this week it’s all about that bane of the competitors’ lives: prosthetics. While one person shines (although strangely doesn’t get a “ding-dong” for some truly remarkable work) the critiques are harsh and more than one MUA looks like they’re welling up and trying to control a wobbly lip. The final face-off is a truly emotional one.
