Summertime is the perfect time to revamp your beauty routine. Longer days and hotter nights call for special skin, hair and make-up tricks. Share your tips in the first ever Instructables Beauty Contest!

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.

So get glowing! We can't wait to see what you'll make.
