Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star – 27 April 2021 – 27/4/2021 – Tuesday – BBC

Series 3 Episode 2 of 8

The nine remaining MUAs enter the world of film and television make-up, as they are booked to come up with looks for the third season of American smash hit drama series Pose. Set in New York in the 1980s and 1990s, Pose explores the colourful competitive ballroom scene of the black and Latino LGBTQ community.

Joining Val and Dominic this week are two guest judges: from the New York set of Pose, head of make-up design Sherri Laurence, and in London, renowned choreographer and pioneer of the UK’s voguing scene Les Child.

Piling on the pressure for their second assignment, the MUAs have just two hours to create a look for a costumed performer before they hit the runway to showcase their looks for the judges. The MUAs must design a look that fits their theme, complements the costume and makes a statement under the lights. Only one can win and have their look featured on the next season of Pose.

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 Pose runway. These two both start the Creative Brief with a 15-minute time penalty. This week’s Creative Brief sees the MUAs challenged to create a look that represents what freedom means to them. It could reflect a personal journey, a movement or a feeling. Three MUAs tackle a full face ombre, two depicting a sunset and one celebrating their Asian heritage by creating a look based on Goddess Kail. Risks are taken with the application of a bald cap and the use of scar wax to tell a deeply personal story, and after another tough judging one MUA needs to work extra hard to impress.

The judges deliberate over which two MUAs 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, in which the contenders must create a red jewelled lip. Following this, one MUA must pack their kit and leave the competition.
