The secret to the show will be the personalities of the contestants, and Glow Up has nailed that pretty well.

Audience Reviews for Glow Up: Season 1

  • May 26, 2020
    seemed fairly rigged given that someone who was deservedly in the bottom two throughout most the season made it to the final...

    The work of most of the artists was wonderful - definitely worth seeing. The judging, however, was just awful and beyond frustrating! Very unfair to send someone home who consistently stood out as being the top in group because she had a bad day during a 15 minute face off! Nikki skated by every week, was in the bottom 2 a total of 4 or 5 times yet she beats Belinda just because she won the 15 minute face off. How is that judging someone's work as a whole. Pathetic judging. The show could be much better with either better judges, or better requirements on sending someone home.

    Could not even finish the series. If Netflix producers read the reviews, PLEASE take a leaf out Project Runway's or ANTM's book! The makeup needs to be showcased in a dramatic way- do a full-styled fashion shoot with the models each challenge and pick the best photos, or send the makeup down the runway. SOMETHING. PLEASE.

    This was so frustrating to watch. The challenges the MUA's had to face were not always very clear nor fair. The way the judging worked was fair until it came down to the face off - there is absolutely no sense in continuing to give multiple chances to one person all because they did well in a short face off after continuously falling short in the main challenges. Having someone in the bottom two over and over and sending someone else home who had one bad day makes absolutely no sense. There were artists who were clearly more talented and more experienced who made it in the bottom one time and you send them home. It shouldnt just come down to that last 5-15 minutes, everything should be judged. The face off part of the show was just extremely pointless. You make it into the red chair, you either get out or you dont. That should be the end of it. If you have two people who dont- then face off. If not then send that person home. This just felt like such a waste of time. Nikki should not have gotten as far as she did, period. Tiff and Belinda deserved another chance.

    nikki was just bad, seriously the judges just saving her over more skilled artist was so bad, i didn´t finish the series, it was NOT worth my time

    I love the idea of a makeup artist competition, but the creators need to have rules in place that fairly decide the competition based on the participant's talent. What made this show shabby was seeing someone fail miserably at the challenges (show after show), only to be saved in a 5-15 minute "face off" at the end of the show. It was frustrating to watch. There should only be a "face off" at the end of each show if the judges decide it's too close to call who was the worst. If someone is clearly the loser send them home. Penalties were changed as the show progressed - but competition shows are not new: there are enough tried and true competition shows to have set up fair rules from the start. Comments made by a judge near the end of competition about a contestant not being able to handle the pressure in a 15 minute challenge were laughable. If the other contestant couldn't handle getting the job done in a 2+ hour show (show after show) how are you able to compare? It made the whole show look "fixed". If they don't smarten this show up I won't be watching another season (if there is one). There are much better options out there.

    I love makeup, and I consider myself a decent makeup artist. The show was NOT well thought out: the directions/objective of the challenge was not always clear, the Face Off challenges were ridiculous and were used to keep the least talented contestant in the show, Nikki. There were very talented contestants who were kicked out of the show because of favoritism to keep the pool of contestants diverse. For season 2, if there is one, I would eliminate the Face offs. Eliminate contestants based on makeup talent! It is really boring to watch a show with a mediocre makeup enthusiast applying makeup once and again!!!!

    After Belinda was sent home I stopped watching. Nikki deserves to go home a long time ago. She failed the main challenges time after time but got saved in useless ‘face offs'. The judges obviously just wanted a way to pick their favorite artist to move her on even though Nikki is completely one note.

    There were many talented contestants but the Face Off challenges were a joke and there was blatant favoritism.

    I wanted to like this and it started off ok. But quickly you realise the judges are either really picky or super nice. No consistency. It moves to quickly for you to learn and enjoy, let alone route for someone. And if you do they get voted off. The challenges don't always have a clear direction and the time is either to long it not long enough to get it done.
