Sophie consistently impresses on the show and has gained an online following after her appearance.
As Glow Up season 3 lands on Netflix this July 30th, 2021, we thought it time to get to know Sophie a little better.

Sophie is already a winner in several viewer’s eyes, who have shared how impressed they are with their work on social media.
During episode one, she represented the social phenomenon of ‘masking’, which involved talking about women with autism.
Sophie was diagnosed with autism at the age of 17. Speaking about her diagnosis, she said: “I always knew something was there. I always felt weird. I just didn’t make much sense.”
Competing on the show and talking openly about her diagnosis has inspired viewers. One Glow Up fan tweeted to Sophie: “You’re also an incredible advocate for young people who have autism”

Sophie often shares her make-up creations on Insta, from prosthetic cuts to bold looks full of colour. She usually stands out due to her unique art.
Noting in a caption that “it feels weird to wear regular makeup”, it’s clear that the BBC star is passionate about her work.
She recently completed her dissertation, which focused on Halloween, suggesting that she enjoys the horror aspect of make-up.
Sophie doesn’t just make creations on her own face, but her university friends, too – who posed as ‘The Clowns’ with her!
