After coming back from judging, Tati announces that she would like to leave the competition, since she misses her family.

This gives Tati the drive to continue on, as she announces that she'll only leave when the judges eliminate her.

The girls participate in a workshop with Kaká Moraes, a renowned make-up artist. Kaká gives every girls tips about what kind of make-up looks better on them. After the workshop, the girls participate in a challenge: Do their own make-up in 20 minutes with products from Avon. Bia's make-up is considered to be the worst; Julliana and Tati are praised for their looks, but Bruna is the challenge winner, as her make-up looks very model-like. As a prize, she'll go in a dinner in a Japanese restaurant, but she needs to choose one girl who will not go. Bruna chooses Bia, as she did the worst, even though Rafaela says that Bruna doesn't like Bia in the first place.

In the restaurant, Bruna has a meltdown because of her diabetes: She says people are always making her think about the disease, even though she doesn't want to think about it. The girls think she just wants attention.

For the photo shoot, the girls are doing a beauty shot, with very over the top head-pieces. Bruna, Camila S. and Giovahnna are considered the best of the day. In judging, the judges are impressed by Bruna's performance during the whole week, winning the challenge and producing the best picture. The judges also wonder if Camila S.'s picture this week was a fluke, since it is so much better than the one in the previous week.

The girls then meet up with Pazzetto for this week's workshop, which is cumulative with Namie's runway lesson. The girls are supposed to learn how to undress a coat elegantly in the runway. Giovahnna struggles, with Namie criticizing her for walking poorly in heels. Tati is also criticized for trying to escape the challenge, with Namie saying she's not fooling him, only herself.

Afterwards, the girls meet up with an actress to learn how to show skin and being sexy without being over the top. The challenge is to walk down the runway while undressing, and drop all the clothes on a trunk. Bruna struggles, while Fabi shines, and she is rewarded with 50% more frames for the week's photo shoot. She also picks one of the girls to have 50% less frames for the shoot, and she chooses Mírian.

In the house, Bruna comments on how she is bloated thanks to her diabetes, but she believes she is getting slimmer. Camila T. and Tati mention that she's not bloated because of the diabetes, but because of the sweets she eats locked up in the bathroom. The girls also criticize Giovahnna for her mood swings. Bia talks about her pregnancy, and Bruna calls her family and cries saying the other girls are being mean to her because of her diabetes.

In the photo shoot, Mírian produces a stellar photo despite having only 15 frames. Fabi struggles, and so does Bia. At judging, Namie praises Giovahnna for her soft facial expression, but says he wants to die whenever he sees her walking in high heels. Erika tells Bia she has to work harder and not rely only on her beautiful eyes. Dudu and Fernanda criticize Bruna for her enlarging figure (she gained 7 centimeters on her hips since the start of the season) and warn her that her only competition is actually herself and not the other girls.
