Megan and Caolan landed in the red seats which gave them 15 minutes less time in the following challenge.

The creative challenge was called Face Your Freedom.The MUAs were tasked with creating a look that shows what freedom means to them and can reflect a personal journey, a movement or a feeling.

Megan's creative challenge saw her take on a foest nymph and she certainly nailed it, but it was not enough for the judges.
