Ongoing Contest/Giveaway!

I just started a Shiro Tumblr page, and the goal is to post one eye look every day. Variety is awesome, so rather than just posting my own eyes all the time, I’d like to be able to use fan-submitted photos as well. So, that’s where all of you come in! Consider the “Comments” section of this post the dropbox for any photos you’d like to submit. Here’s how it’s going to work:

1) You post your photo(s) here – close-up shots of eyes are preferred
2) I choose photos from this page and post them on Tumblr
3) For every photo of yours that is chosen, you’ll get a $5 credit to spend on anything you like at shirocosmetics.com!

And, some rules and submission guidelines:

1) Only Shiro Cosmetics eye colors may be used. Other brands of eye liner, mascara, primer, et cetera are fine.
2) Please include a list of the colors you used, the name that you would like to be credited for the photo, and a link if you would like the image to click through to your site.
3) By posting your picture, you are giving me permission to post it on the Shiro Cosmetics Tumblr page if I so choose, and to edit it in any of the following ways: resizing, cropping, blemish removal, and color and tone correction.
4) I reserve the right to choose whichever photos I like, or to choose none at all and post a look of my own instead.
5) There are no limits to the number of times you can win. Hooray!

Good luck to all! 🙂
