2. How do I Enter?
Entries are to be made via Instagram. You can find the app by searching for ‘Instagram’ in your app store.
It is then easy to use to make your entry, simply:
- Show us your secret beauty hack
- Film it in no more than 30 seconds.
- Upload to Instagram tagging @lookfantastic and #JoinTheBeautySet in the caption.
- Make sure your Instagram profile is set to public (and you preferably have a contact email in your bio).
3. What do I need to do in the video?
All you need to do is show us your top secret beauty hack. This could cover make-up, skincare, body, fragrance or hair - get creative! We want to know your very best beauty secrets.
4. What do I need in order to film my video?
All you need is a public Instagram profile and a phone or camera.
If you want to use filming equipment like extra lights and microphones, that is fine but definitely not necessary. We want this to be all about your passion for beauty, not about fancy equipment!
5. Is it UK only?
This time around, yes it is. But good news, if you are from outside the UK, then why not find your local lookfantastic site and follow their social media channels? There are always opportunities to get involved with lookfantastic, wherever you are in the world, with The Beauty Set now being global.

6. Any tips and hints?
Our advice for creating a winning video entry:
• Find somewhere quiet and well-lit so you can film easily.
• Make sure your head and shoulders are in frame and speak up to make sure we can see and hear you properly.
• Check your background and make sure you don’t have anything on show that you might not want on the internet!
• Smile and be yourself! Just imagine you are talking about beauty to one of your best friends.
Finally, make sure your Instagram profile is public so we can see your amazing entries! Remember to make sure you tag both @lookfantastic and #JoinTheBeautySet in your caption so that your entry will be seen.
7. What will happen to my footage?
We might use your footage in lots of ways across our platforms, such as on site, across social platforms and in our email campaigns. Please do not delete your entry and keep it on your social channels.
By submitting your video, you are giving us permission to use the footage.
Please see the legal terms and conditions for full details.
8. How will I know if I am shortlisted?
We will contact you between the 29th of January and the 1st of February via Direct Message on Instagram to let you know if you have made the shortlist. So please keep checking your DM’s (and message requests!) - even better, why not add your email to your bio and we can contact you directly!
If you haven’t heard from us by the 2nd of February, then unfortunately you haven’t made it this time.
