Sophie on BBC’s Glow Up
Sophie is already a winner in several viewer’s eyes, who have shared how impressed they are with their work on social media.
Having officially made it to the final four at the time of writing, she has served up some unique looks during her time.
During episode one, she represented the social phenomenon of ‘masking’, which involved talking about women with autism.
Next episode, she went on to represent her feminist upbringing, by painting colours of the suffragette flag to pay homage to her Irish heritage.
Then in the third episode, Sophie created a look based on the artist who inspires her the most – which was Francis Bacon.
Episode four saw her represent westernised beauty standards and lip fillers, and then an ‘out of this world’ piece in episode five.

Glow Up: Meet Sophie on Instagram
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!
