Hot Off the Press Release: TVNZ OnDemand Glows Up

A new Kiwi reality show exclusive to TVNZ OnDemand will stream weekly from August 19.

Glow Up NZ is based on a BBC format in which make-up artists compete to put the best face on their talent.

Here’s the media release:

Glam line-up revealed for TVNZ OnDemand’s new reality series, Glow Up NZ!

Hosted by ZM’s Megan Papas, TVNZ OnDemand’s hotly anticipated new reality series will see nine incredibly creative and talented makeup artists battling to win Aotearoa’s first Glow Up NZ.

Inspired by the #glowup social media phenomenon, and based on the BBC format, talented Kiwis will compete in a series of makeup artistry challenges, exploring different genres and the mind-blowing, internet-trending styles of extreme makeup artistry.

The nine MUAs competing in Glow Up NZ are:

Alyshia Jones, 25, Tauranga
Emma Jade Allerby, 21, Auckland
Isadora Blake, 37, Hamilton
Kyle de Thier, 17, Gisborne
Lara Tilley, 21, Timaru
Myrthe Heydenrijk, 27, Wellington
Nika Steele, 27, Whanganui
Richard Symons, 29, Auckland
Sachin Dutt, 19, Auckland

Standing between the MUAs and the $5,000 cash prize are two industry leading mentors, who, with the help of a guest judge each week, decide the fate of the contestants.

Taking up the mentoring roles are: Tane Tomoana, renowned Creative Director at Dry & Tea salons – Tane’s chopped the locks of Anika Moa, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Hollie Smith. Joining Tane is Gee Pikinga, a leading MUA and NZ Director at Maybelline New York – Gee is no stranger to TV and was head makeup artist on TVNZ 2’s Project Runway New Zealand.

From avant-garde to editorial and fashion, these MUAs will need to prove they can do it all to succeed and make it through all seven weeks in the competition.

After spending years perfecting their craft in their bedrooms, which MUA will prove they can make it on the mainstage of Glow Up NZ’s studio?

Glow Up NZ premieres midday on TVNZ OnDemand, Wednesday 19th August with new episodes weekly.

Glow Up NZ is based on the BBC format and is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production New Zealand.
