The first Glasgow contestant is heading home from BBC’s Glow Up: Britain’s Next Makeup Star.
10 MUA’s went head to head in the latest episode and showcased their best theatrical makeup skills.
Their first challenge was to paint the faces of Cirque Du Soleil for their live performance and impress the judges, Val Garland and Dominic Skinner.
The artists were cautioned that timing was crucial as working backstage, everything is fast paced.
They were instructed to follow the design given but the MUAs faced challenges with applying foil to the performers.
Glasgow contestant 21-year old Adam was warned to watch out for his proportions when painting a band of colour on his performer.

In the show, Adam shared that his preferred choice of makeup is “glam, glam, glam.”
He admitted it was ‘quite a thing’ when he told his family that he wanted to be a makeup artist due to his background.
Adam said: “There’s not many male Pakistani MUA’s. It’s a beautiful culture to be proud of.
“There was a lot of judgement, a lot of ‘you shouldn’t be doing it, he shouldn’t be touching a woman’s face.'”
He then went on to share that while his father ‘didn’t fully understand’, just before he passed away, he did and called Adam his ‘brave Lion’.
Unfortunately the show’s second Glasgow contestant Yong-Chin’s makeup look didn’t get into the main show, being criticised that her look would need touched up in the show.
However, the artists had a second chance to show off their skills in a body painting challenge, forcing them to use the model’s body as a canvas – not just their face.
One viewer said: “Glow up turning into Skin Wars tonight with all the body paint!”
“Kinda wish they would stop with costume make up and do actual glam/everyday looks”, another hit back.
But one by one, the MUA’s showed off their creations but it was Adam and Rachel.
Adam was criticised for not putting in as much effort into the face, concentrating too much on painting the body.
Despite battling it out with Rachel over a mermaid lip look in the face off, Val and Dominic both agreed that Rachel’s was neater and deserved to have another chance.
And although Adam’s time on Glow Up has come to an end, he is positive about his future, saying that his journey is just beginning.
