In the professional assignment, contestants are set a task by the judges outside of the studio to follow a brief, such as at London Fashion Week. In the following creative brief, the contestants are given a description of the look required.

In the face off, two contestants take part in a challenge, normally focusing on one section of the face. The MUA who performs the worst is eliminated, and the other progresses onto the next episode.

Netflix acquired the rights to distribute Glow Up as a Netflix Original series in 2019.

To apply for the competition, applicants must fill out the form on Wall To Wall Productions website.
