Glow Up or Blow Up: Disrupting The Beauty Industry with Fan Engagement
‘Blow Up or Glow Up’ is the popular new IGTV show hosted by Liz where women receive a quick, but substantial makeover including but not limited to hair, clothing, makeup, and non-invasive procedures. The genius behind the show is that it incorporates her followers, and the followers of her expert team, as a fundamental part of each episode.
