About this Challenge

Everybody has a beauty secret! This Challenge is made for our aspiring beauty gurus, MUAs, and anyone who finds themselves glued to the makeup hauls and makeover vlogs of the YouTube world. Whether you love a full glammed up face or a fresh, clean skincare line, we want to know: What are your must-have products when it comes to your beauty routine?

We're interested to hear what you think is the holy grail when it comes to the best makeup and skincare products. So, make a case for what you believe to be the be-all, end-all when it comes to these products you just can't live without. Enter the Holy Grail Challenge to tell us what has a forever home in your makeup bag, and why these goodies are top tier!💄

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
