Glow Up Season 3 airs on BBC Three via BBC iPlayer here.

New episodes are available on BBC iPlayer each Tuesday from 7pm, running for eight episodes from 20 April

In the next episode (18 May), for the professional assignment the six remaining MUAs are booked to do the make-up on a beauty shoot, for global online retailer ASOS.

Dialling up the pressure for their fifth assignment, the MUAs have just two hours to design and create a look which fits the client's Luminate makeup brief. The MUAs must create creative polished looks which showcase the mascara, their looks must also feature a shimmery eye and a glow on the skin, their looks must also align with ASOS’s brand identity and be inspiring and relatable.

The next day, the MUAs gather at Glow Up Studios to find out which two were judged to have created the weakest looks for the online retailer’s social media video campaign. They both start the day in the red Face Off chairs with a 15-minute time penalty in the Creative Brief.


Staying in the online world for this week’s Creative Brief the MUAs are challenged to create a look that is ‘out of this world’. The Judges want the MUAs to design conceptual make up looks that are bold and imaginative, they could choose to explore space as we know it, imagine an extraterrestrial life or create their own vision of another world.

The judge’s feedback and deliberate over which two MUAs have produced the weakest looks before revealing who will go head-to-head in the Face Off elimination, a make-up skill drill under intense time pressure, here they are tasked with creating a structured glitter eye. The MUA who least impresses packs up their make-up kit and leaves the competition.
