Glow Up Season 5: Exploring All the Filming Locations

Living up to its name, ‘Glow Up,’ alternately titled ‘Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star,’ is a competition show that brings together various up-and-coming young makeup artists who compete against one another in order to make a name for themselves and most of all, win the opportunity to work as assistant to the greatest artists in the makeup industry. The contestants indulge in a variety of challenges that test their level of creativity, hard work, and quick thinking, in order to impress industry professionals Dominic Skinner and Val Garland and the weekly guest stars.

In the fifth iteration, the show introduced us to ten new talented aspiring makeup artists who are tasked with several new challenges, including creating makeup looks inspired by the characters from ‘Bridgerton.’ As they take the competition by storm, the judges have a task at hand of eliminating new contestants in each episode.
