Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make Up Star returns for its third series with a new cast of budding Make-Up Artists and guest judges.

Popular presenter Maya Jama joins resident judges Val Garland and Dominic Skinner for the first time, as they welcome a glittering array of guest judges and experts from across the worlds of beauty, TV, music, and fashion.

Series 3 will see the battle of the brushes take place across multiple real-world assignments and challenges, as the MUAs get to work on everything from studio shoots and campaigns with Superdrug and ASOS, through to period make-up and prosthetics on set with Pose, The Crown, and Peaky Blinders.

Internationally recognised photographer Rankin invites the MUAs to work on a look for a music video with Jonas Blue and Awa, while global TikTok superstar Abby Roberts teaches them what works on social media. Finally, Lisa Eldridge, one of the world’s most experienced make-up artists, completes the lineup for a masterclass in make-up.

The 10 make-Up artists joining the show are Dolli, Sophie, Alex, Xavi, Elliot, Ryley, Samah, Nicole, Jack, and Craig who beat the odds in a year when more applications than ever were received to join the competition. The 10 MUAs compete to be tipped as Britain’s Next Make-Up Star, winning a contract to work alongside some of the world’s biggest artists.


Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make Up Star series 3 returns to BBC iPlayer from 7pm Tuesday 20th April.
