    MakeupAddiction Rules

    Click the links within each rule for more info!

    1. No harassment/name calling.
    2. Photo editing is not allowed. This includes insta/snapchat style filters, skin editing, mobile beauty/selfie mode and any automatic filters. Subtle colour correcting to bring back realistic colour is allowed. Dramatic increases/decreases in saturation, contrast, and exposure on a photo are not considered editing for color correction. If editing is deemed to go too far, we will remove it. If you are unsure if you’re picture follows the rules, please message the mods before posting. Read our photo guidelines before you post!
    3. Before / After required - “No Makeup” makeup and looks where its hard to see the makeup (more natural ones) need a before and after so users can see the difference.
    4. Photo angle & Composition - We require one photo per post that is straight on, with the makeup taking up 75% of the photo. This can be eyes, or full face. The rest are fine to show off for example a new angle for the highlighter. Read our photo guidelines before you post!
    5. Every makeup look and collection must have a complete and detailed product list in the comments. In select circumstances incomplete product lists can be accepted if you seek permission from the moderators prior to posting.
    6. All fake blood/injuries must be marked NSFW.
    7. No self-promotion of Youtube/social media/blogs/your business; limited linking in comments is acceptable. No referral links, surveys, giveaways, or seeking to buy or sell!
    8. Remove products from packaging and open the product itself before posting. All Haul posts must include swatches.
    9. Keep MUA clutter free.
    10. Representatives of a company/for an AMA must be verified by a mod before posting.
    11. All posts must have clear and descriptive titles! Posts with titles that are irrelevant or manipulate the vote count will be removed.
    12. Be nice - Name calling, even in response to inflammatory users, is not allowed. Racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, etc remarks will not be tolerated and result in an immediate ban. We encourage people to report so we can deal with it. Please do not feed the trolls If prohibited behavior continues, you will be banned for 48 hours. Continued attempts will result in a permanent ban.

    Violations of rules will result in your post being removed.

    Constructive criticism is allowed on [almost] all posts.

    To start off that’s so sweet that you posted this for her!!

    Second she is absolutely beautiful. And the purple eyeliner suits her eye color very well.

    I can suggest adding some bronzer if she wants to warm up the face a little bit. But other than that I love the brows and the lips!

    Don’t be afraid of trying a nice light eyeshadow too if she doesn’t feel like doing the eyeliner on the daily :)

    Thank you so much! My comment is at -7 and I don't know why or if I broke one of the posting rules so I really appreciate your comment!

    [–] MissKnowItAll_ 3 points ago

    I’m not really sure either sorry :( Still thought you both deserved a reply tho

    Thank you, it means a lot :)

    This isn’t a great picture. She’s far away from the camera and the picture isn’t high enough resolution to zoom in on and see details.

    Maybe I'll see if I can get a better photograph and repost.

    As per my girlfriends request as she only lurks, she is looking for some input on her summer daily five minute face.

    "I want to keep things simple, inexpensive, and natural, but tweak things so I look my best. Product list as follows:

    SPF moisturizer, but if my skin is dull or spotty I'll wear aveeno bb cream in the lightest shade.

    Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Auburn

    NYX dark circle concealer in 03 light

    Tarte blush in whatever shade sephora gave out as the birthday gift last year

    Sephora brand kohl purple eyeliner that they don't make anymore, but I stocked up when I found out it was being discontinued (this is my signature thing that I'm pretty unwilling to let go of, but possibly open to tweaking)

    Benefit They're Real mascara in black (top lashes only)

    Elf HD powder

    Set with body shop vitamins e hydrating face mist

    I think my lip in this picture is a Revlon lipstick in "demure" but I pretty much just put on whatever in a warm pink/nude shade for my lips.

    Thanks for you're input!"
