Breaking all the rules when it comes to fashion and beauty is just her style. Doe Deere, self appointed unicorn queen and CEO of her own beauty company Lime Crime has her own style and enjoys not just breaking the rules, but rewriting them.
Deere’s line makes it clear that she plays by her own rules. Her creations are tagged as makeup for unicorns and feature bright, bold, and vivid colors as well as whimsical combinations like teal lipstick and glittery cosmetics. While she doesn’t play by the traditional rules, she has a few that she loves to break and she recently shared them in an interview.
Bold eyes and bold lips go together. Traditionally, women are told to do one or the other, but Deere thinks nothing looks better than a bold eye with deep red lips. She is known to have bright and vibrant eyes while sporting fun and whimsical shades on her lips quite often.
One big rule has always been not to mix too many colors, but Deere couldn’t disagree more. Her trick is to adhere to color combinations that work well together, including the fun shades she is often seen sporting in her hair.
For decades we have all heard not to mix patterns, but Deere makes that a thing of the past. Patterns are fun and her thoughts are simply the more the merrier. She loves the print on print looks, and while there is no wrong way to pair up patterns she does recommend staying in the same color scheme.
All our lives we are told not to wear socks with open toed shoes, but not anymore. Deere and her fun socks are meant to be seen and paired in a fun and trendy way with open toed shoes. She makes socks a garment that everyone can have fun with as they let fun colors or patterns peek through the toes of their shoes.
Fashion rules imply that looks must be tidy and dictate that neutrals are only meant to be worn by those who have unnaturally colored hair, but Deere and her vibrant hair couldn’t disagree more. She loves pairing color with her hair and outfits, but she does warn to pay close attention to how the colors interact with each other.
Dressing your age is out the window. Deere believes if you like it then it’s appropriate. True style knows no age.
Finally, she is throwing out the rule about occasion specific dressing. Mix and match to turn something fancy like an evening gown into something more casual by adding a sweater. Clothes are made to be enjoyed and everyone should wear what makes them feel their absolute best and most expressive selves no matter what the occasion.
