Glow Up, the popular makeup reality competition series, has returned for a new season on Netflix. And, if you thought Seasons 1-3 offered some stunning looks, wait until you see what the MUAs have in store for you in Season 4. What we really want to know is, will there ever be a more iconic look than the one from Season 1.
Okay, that's not the only thing we need to know. Who are the cast members? Which ones are self-taught? Who does the creepy stuff and who does the glam stuff? Heck, who does the creepy glam stuff?
All 10 MUA Instagrams are listed below, as well as links to a few TikToks and other places where you can see their work. We give that a big ol' dong!
