BBC Glow Up viewers already 'know' who's going to win make-up competition
In episode one, the make-up artists (MUAs) travel to Birmingham for their first professional assignment, a social media campaign for a sport and fitness brand.
This week’s guest judge, the company’s styling manager Ivy Weir-Ikpeme, challenges the MUAs to produce a gym-friendly, natural make-up look for their diverse customer base.
Healthy looking skin and colour matching are a must, plus they need to add one fierce ‘fitspiration’ feature that stays true to the campaign’s brief, but stops the user in their tracks.
At the end of the assignment, the judges review the test shots and decide which MUAs work is good enough for the online campaign, reaching 17 million followers.
The winning MUA who impresses the most is rewarded and remains on set to assist with the make-up for the rest of the shoot, while the others return home.
Makeup artist Lisa was the first chosen to represent the campaign, but Glaswegian Yong-Chin received plenty of praise for her ideas.

In the next round, contestants were asked to create a look showing their "hidden strengths" using their own faces over a period of two and a half hours.
Youg-Chin decided to use latex to create a crater for a 3D element creating a galaxy and "atomic explosion" look with her chosen strength being "focus".
The judges thought she "executed it to a T" adding they were "blown away" by the look and her central focal point adding how talented she was to make the look herself using liquid latex and cotton wool.
The judges even ended up giving her a round of applause as she wiped the happy tears away.
Up next was Adam's look using his strength of "bravery".
Showing off his skills the judges said they loved the asymmetry however wanted a more seamless finish asking him to step outside his comfort zone more to show his bravery.
Both MUAs yet again managed to escape the face off and will now appear in the second episode creating powerful looks inspired by the Cirque du Soleil.
However, one contestant wasn't so lucky, as Charlie was the first to go home, but they stated that they were "proud of my journey on Glow Up, however short and sweet it was."
Fans flocked to social media to congratulate our two Glasgow contestants, and agree on the elimination decision.
One Twitter user said: "Congrats #GlowUp for getting rid of the narcissist in the first episode. The entitlement was strong with that one."
Another said: "That's one way to never work in the makeup industry #GlowUp #faceoffchairs #forfeit"
And a third wrote: "I’m so sorry but Charlie was sooo extra for that and I feel like it was just so unprofessional. Closed the doors to future opportunities on the first episode #GlowUp"
Others were already discussing the potential victor of the series, with one Twitter user writing: "Lisa hadn’t even picked up a make up brush or opened her mouth and I’d already decided she was the winner #GlowUp"
Another said: "anyway. lisa is going to win #glowup"
And a third wrote: "I love Lisa already #GlowUp"
Others were quick to praise our Glaswegian Yong-Chin for her work on the show, with one person noting: "Very happy #GlowUp is back and blown away by Yong-chin’s look already!"
Further comments praised the show's use of pronouns, writing: "Love love LOVE them continuing to show the contestants' pronouns on their chyrons and showing one of them checking what pronouns their model uses. Lovely stuff."
The second episode of Glow Up: Britain's Next Makeup Star will air on Wednesday, May 18 at 8pm.
