When RTÉ announced their brand new talent show, Glow Up Ireland, it came as no surprise when Maura Higgins was announced as the host.
Now, it seems Maura has officially begun filming the new series.
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.
Taking to her Instagram stories today, Maura shared a snap of a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, and a good luck card from her management company Off Limits Entertainment ahead of her first day of filming.
The card read: “To Maura, Wishing you the best of luck on your first day filming Glow Up! … we are so proud. Love from your Off Limits Family.”
Speaking about the show, 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.”
