Hosted by Maya Jama, Glow Up returns for its fourth series as ten aspiring make-up artists are tested in varied professional assignments, from TV to theatre, fashion to front covers and on-line beauty campaigns.
The make-up artists (MUAs) travel to Birmingham for their first professional assignment, a social media campaign for a sport and fitness brand. Guest judge Ivy Weir-Ikpeme, the company's styling manager, challenges the MUAs to produce a gym-friendly, natural make-up look for their diverse customer base.
It’s the Glow Up final, and the MUAs must present a masterclass to a global panel of industry heavyweights, in order to be crowned Britain’s Next Make-Up Star.
The MUAs are booked to create looks for the dancers in Jonas Blue’s new music video. In Glow Up Studios, the MUAs create looks inspired by a guilty pleasure.
The MUAs enter the world of special effects, creating looks from an iconic fight scene in Peaky Blinders. At Glow Up studios, they must impress with their transformations.
The MUAs are booked to create beauty looks for an ASOS social media campaign. In Glow Up Studios they must impress with imaginative looks which are 'out of this world'.
The MUAs take on the world of Social Media make-up, creating looks for TikTok. In Glow Up Studios they must impress by creating looks inspired by a Face Filter.
The MUAs go back in time to create looks for Golden Globe & BAFTA Award-winning TV drama series, The Crown. At Glow Up Studios, they must impress by turning their models into art.

Maya Jama hosts as ten make-up artists work on a beauty campaign for Superdrug and produce make-up transformations at Glow Up studios.
It’s the final of Glow Up and just three MUAs remain – they all have a chance to be crowned Britain’s Next Make-Up Star, but only one will come out on top. Stacey Dooley presents as the MUAs are faced with their biggest Professional Assignment to date.
Val Garland and Dominic Skinner are joined on the judging panel by Guest Judges Annalise Fard, Harrod’s Director of Beauty and make-up royalty, and Anastasia Soare, creator of Anastasia Beverly Hills. Under their watchful eyes the MUAs are tasked with leading their own make-up masterclass at one of the world’s most famous department stores – Harrods.
The MUAs take it in turns to deliver a masterclass, showcasing their USP by creating a signature look on the eyes in front of an audience of industry professionals. They must be engaging, informative and deliver great make-up.
The next day at Glow Up HQ the final three MUAs take on their last Creative Brief: delivering a look on the theme of evolution. They must demonstrate who they were before they started this competition and who they are now, and the finalists must push the boundaries – interpreting the brief and creating looks like never before.
Following the Creative Brief, the judges must decide which MUA should leave the competition in third place before the final two head into the Face Off, where one will be crowned winner of Glow Up and named Britain’s Next Make-Up Star.
