Maura Higgins announced as host of new RTE talent competition, Glow Up Ireland

RTE have revealed that Maura Higgins will be taking the reins of their brand new talent show. The program, called Glow Up Ireland, may sound familiar to you as the UK version featured Irish makeup artist James Mac.

Now a brand new Irish version of the international format has been commissioned for RTÉ2 with our very own Maura Higgins as host.

The show will see chosen candidates competing across eight episodes, showing off their technical know-how, skill, artistry and imagination as they are challenged in a range of real-world assignments rooted in authenticity and tasked with creating make-up transformations in Glow Up HQ.

At the end of it all, just one contestant will be crowned Ireland’s Next Make-Up Star. How exciting!

Speaking about the show, Love Island star Maura said; “I’m so excited to be the presenter of the first ever Glow Up Ireland. Having watched the last few series of the show in the UK this is such an amazing opportunity and the fact that this is my first presenting job and it’s in Ireland is so overwhelming.”

“It’s such a pinch me moment to be doing this back in my home country. I actually can’t believe it. Obviously we’re expecting a very high standard of Irish talent to come forward. Applications are now open so get in touch to be in with a chance of landing one of the top ten coveted spots on the show.”

Anyone interested in applying can email glowup@indiepics.ie for more information. The deadline is Sunday June 20th and you must be over 18 to apply!

We can expect to see Glow Up Ireland on our screens this Autumn.
