No, there’s no swimsuit challenge or talent round in this Beauty Contest. We want to know your secrets for glowing, healthy skin, for taming unruly hair, and for make-up to last through all-night beach parties.

Whether you’re an expert at henna highlights or a gourmet chef at homemade skin creams, this is the contest you’ve been waiting for. It’s time to share your secret kung-fu for effortless summer updos, and perfect smudge-proof cat eyes.

To enter, you must publish a new Instructable that involves a hair, make-up or skin care tip. It can be a recipe or technique. So show us what you’ve got for a chance to win one of 6 luxury Summer Skin Care Kits from Sephora. Top products from companies like Bliss, Clarins, and Smashbox will both protect and pamper your skin this summer.
