We want to acknowledge that creating a look for the summer may feel strange when many of us aren’t sure when we’ll be able to return to normal life. Though it is hard to know when your clients will be able to return to your studio, we hope to enable you to continue to help women feel beautiful with your own makeup creation and Look kit, whether or not they’re enjoying a date night at home or out and about.


We encourage you to get creative for summer, while challenging yourself to stay within neutral tones. Remember your client during this process: she works hard and plays hard! This look is meant to be worn on a hot summer date night, out with friends, or at an evening event to pair with a cocktail dress. She is willing to put 15-20 minutes into this look, so make sure this is something she can achieve beautifully!

We are looking for looks that are best suited for a broad range of skin tones, so feel free to submit multiple looks! There will be 15 total winners with a breakdown of the following: The top 5 light skin tone looks, top 5 medium skin tone looks, and 5 deep skin tone looks.


  • Neutral color palettes;
  • Formulas that are long lasting and sweat resistant for those hot summer nights;
  • A foundation and application technique that is on the more sheer side, or can be buildable to your client’s taste;
  • Foundations and powders that can make skin look muddy should be avoided;
  • Bronzer is encouraged for a summer glow;
  • Foundations that will be suitable for both dry and/or oily skin types;
  • Primers, moisturizers, setting sprays, and other skin products are welcome in this challenge.


  • Example photos aren’t provided because we don’t want to limit your vision! Get as creative as you’d like, while remembering the guidelines above. If you aren’t sure about how you’re doing, ask the community for their feedback.
  • Listing a tutorial or product list is strictly prohibited. You will need to submit this information privately to the Brush Box Team after you are listed as a winner. Brush Box recognizes product names and tutorials as your intellectual property, and this information will be released to the customer only when they purchase your look through the Brush Box Marketplace. Failure to comply with this guideline will result in a deletion of your entry. Remember, your clients are willing to pay money to learn how to get your look!
  • Keep record of every product, shade, and brush used to create your look. If you are deemed a winner, you will need to provide this information to Brush Box in order to sell your look in the marketplace. This will be due within 7 days of the challenge winner announcement.
  • You will also need to provide a tutorial if your look is for sale in the marketplace. We recommend filming a tutorial as you create the look, but if you prefer to wait to see if you won the challenge, you can replicate the look on the same model at a later date. A tutorial is required to sell your look in the Brush Box marketplace, and will be due within 7 days of the challenge winner announcement.
  • Share with your network! Submissions with the most votes win, so ask your friends, family, and clients to vote for you and you’ll be a winner in no time!
  • Have fun! Show off your unique style, creativity, and vision. The Brush Box community is here to support you, cheer you on, and help you grow as an artist!

We hope you have fun, take risks, and be bold! Summer is right around the corner. This is your time to shine!
