Tuesday

Tuesday is the series premiere of Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-Up Artist on Lifetime at 10/9c. In the hour-long, six-episode series, contestants from around the country will compete for a contract as a professional artist with Max Factor, a cash prize of $100,000 and the opportunity to be the make-up artist for an upcoming In Style photo shoot. Emmy(R) Award-winning actress Vanessa Marcil has been named host of show. In Style’s internationally recognized fashion director Hal Rubenstein and industry make-up artist and author Joanna Schlip will serve as judges. Famed make-up artist Charlie Green will act as a mentor guiding the contestants through their challenges and offering encouragement, advice and insight. In each episode, the contestants, all living under one roof in Los Angeles, compete in two different make-up competitions, designed to test the skills and personality traits – including compassion and confidence – necessary for success in the field. Following the second challenge, one contestant will be eliminated.

It’s also the series premiere of Cha$e on SciFi at 10/9c. Cash or Capture is an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat reality competition show that pits a group of contestants against each other in the quest for a cash prize, while being stalked by relentless “hunters.” Based on a successful Japanese format from Fuji Television, the action takes place over 60 minutes of real time in various landmark locations. As the clock winds down, the competition gets harder as more hunters appear on the streets, the game perimeter gets smaller, and tasks are assigned that test fraying nerves. Contestants earn money for every second they “stay alive,” but if they are overrun by a hunter they lose everything. When only minutes remain in the game a final clue to the game’s exit point is revealed, and the first contestant to make it to that spot wins the prize.
