TV shows to watch out for: New 10 part documentary “Made Up In Belfast”

We can see this being our next TV addiction.

If you were a big fan of Glow Up then you'll want to check out the BBC's latest beauty based show.

Made Up In Belfast will follow the vibrant team to provide a behind-the-scenes insight into the glitz and glamour of the beauty industry, from product launches, to meeting super tight deadlines, and all of the fun had in between amongst the charismatic team.

The 10 part series by Afro-Mic Productions reveals the ins and outs of both the fun and the not-so-luxurious sides of working in the beauty industry and the relationship between company owner, inspirational boss Brendan McDowell, from Annalong Co.Down, who started the company with just £500 back in 2013, and the amazing team who have helped him along the way.

Speaking with us today about the exciting project, Brendan said;


“Never in a million years did I think this amazing journey would turn into a TV show. They have seen the graft, fun, growth and journey we’ve all been on. I am really looking forward to showing everyone ay home what goes on the scenes at a growing cosmetics brand – the good, the bad and the madness!”

Viewers will see exactly how their young, enthusiastic, hard-working team works in a high pressure, creative environment, all the while chasing their dreams, making lifelong friends, finding love, and building their careers, one product at a time.

The series is the latest commission from the partnership between BBC Three, BBC Northern Ireland and Northern Ireland Screen, following on from others in this scheme including The Fast And The Farmer-ish And Stitch, Please!

No release date for episode one of the ten part series has been announced yet but with the buzz around the new docu-series we can't imagine we'll be waiting long to find out.
