UK-based Wall to Wall, a Warner Bros. subsidiary, is bringing the glam to British digital-only pubcaster BBC3 in a new competition series titled Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star.
Glow Up (8 x 60 minutes) was announced last year as one of the first commissions to come from the channel’s new formats-focused editorial pillar. The make-up competition series will feature 10 contestants who will live and work together as they compete to impress a panel of judges in order to win a contract assisting some of the world’s biggest make-up artists.
Host Stacey Dooley will be joined throughout the series by Val Garland, global make-up director for L’Oreal Paris, and Dominic Skinner, global senior artist for MAC, who will judge the competition.
Both Garland and Skinner have worked with some of the biggest style icons, fashion houses and beauty and lifestyle brands. Garland’s portfolio includes working with everyone from Kate Moss and Lady Gaga, to designer Alexander McQueen and Vogue. Meanwhile, Skinner’s background in beauty and body painting have graced everything from music, television, film and photography.
Glow Up is executive produced by Melissa Brown. It was commissioned by BBC3 controller Damian Kavanagh and Clare Sillery, head of commissioning, documentaries. The commissioning editor is Emily Smith.
Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star is expected to air later this year.
