Glow Up’s latest eliminated contestant Ryley has revealed she scrapped her original look for last night’s creative brief after an unaired critique from Dominic Skinner.
In episode six of the BBC Three series, the remaining contestants were tasked with coming up with a look inspired by the seven deadly sins.
Ryley had initially decided to create her take on ‘lust personified’, but decided to switch it up to design a cartoon interpretation of lust, inspired by the likes of Betty Boop and Jessica Rabbit instead.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, Ryley explained why she was spurred to go down a different route.
‘For my episode five critique, there was a part where Dom said that he wished I would reference more artists and give a bit more context to back up the look,’ Ryley told us. ‘There was quite a long bit on that so I’m surprised they completely cut that out and that was the reason for my episode six look.’
Ryley said that she stayed up until two in the morning to make a whole new mood board.

‘I completely changed it all because I wanted to try and reference and that is what got me sent home,’ she continued.
Hinting at regret over the move, Ryley added: ‘I should never have second-guessed myself basically.’
Ryley’s original look was going to be a black smudged smokey eye with chains around the whole face and do a really high ponytail.
‘There was no context behind it, it was just my idea of lust personified,’ she said.
‘From that critique I was stressed out, I was missing home, and you know when you just get into your head a little bit?’
Just four contestants remain in Glow Up series three, with Craig, Dolli, Jack and Sophie competing to become Britain’s next make-up star.
BBC Three’s Glow Up is streaming now on BBC iPlayer, with new episodes every Tuesday at 7pm.
