Series three of hit BBC Three make-up show Glow Up returns to BBC iPlayer from 7pm on Tuesday 20 April with a new cast of budding Make-Up Artists (MUAs) and guest judges, including Rankin, Abby Roberts and Lisa Eldridge.

Dolli, Sophie, Alex, Xavi, Elliot, Ryley, Samah, Nicole, Jack and Craig make up the brand new cast of Glow Up’s aspiring MUAs, in a year when more applications than ever were received to join the competition.

Presenter Maya Jama also 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, including:

  • Ateh Jewel, award-winning beauty journalist and trail-blazing diversity campaigner

  • Sherri Laurence, Emmy award-winner and make-up department head on Pose

  • Les Child, choreographer and voguing pioneer

  • Cate Hall, lead hair and make-up designer on The Crown

  • Abby Roberts, TikTok’s biggest make-up star

  • Vanessa Spence, ASOS design director

  • Loz Schiavo, Bafta-winning make-up designer on Peaky Blinders

  • Rankin, globally-renowned photographer and director

  • Jonas Blue, DJ and music producer

  • Awa, singer

  • Lisa Eldridge, one of the world's leading make-up artists

The new ten MUAs are hopeful to impress the judges and be tipped as Britain’s Next Make-Up Star, winning a contract to work alongside some of the world’s biggest artists.

Series three 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 and respected make-up artists, completes the line up for the final challenge: a masterclass in make up.
