BBC Three Glow Up: Glasgow contestant impresses judges and secures place in final
BBC Three’s Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-up Star is back for its fourth series and tonight (June 22) will see a make-up artist from Glasgow compete for a place in the final.
Glasgow contestant Yong-Chin, a freelance makeup artist and part-time nanny who now lives in London, took center stage.

In the seventh episode, Yong-Chin alongside the other contestants was asked to take on another gigantic task.
The description for the penultimate episode reads: “The remaining four MUAs have hit London Fashion Week as they are booked to do makeup for British fashion designer Mark Fast, under the watchful and talented eye of makeup artist key to the show, Pablo Rodriguez.
“The Creative Brief challenges MUAs to create a look that represents a moment of rebellion in their life, something that goes against the norm and breaks the rules.
“The two MUAs judged to have produced the weakest looks compete in the Face Off elimination, after which one MUA packs their makeup kit and leaves the competition.”
Yong-Chin said she wanted to “prove herself” and be the “next big thing in makeup,” saying her parents instilled in her to do “everything 100% her best.” She credited her driving as coming from her parents who traveled to Glasgow from Korea.
Speeding up and the first to arrive at her second runway model, Yong-Chin impressed the judges with one saying the Glasgow-born star ‘worked fast’ and did a ‘great job’, calling her clear winner.
