Rules, rules and more rules! Why does that fashion world feel the need to dictate to women about how they look? Aren’t we all grown ups now? Can’t we decide what we want to wear and how we want to wear it?
That’s the philosophy of Internet entrepreneur Doe Deere, whose Lime Crime cosmetics line is making a difference in how women make themselves up. This innovative makeup line was created by Deere as an online startup, and now it’s becoming a major rule breaker in the world of cosmetics.
Doe Deere herself loves to play with color and bend or break the rules as she does it. Here are a few rules she’s very fond of breaking.
Don’t Wear Colors if Your Hair is Unnaturally Tinted. Deere is a woman who loves to ear her hair in shades of red, pink, purple and blue, and her view is that these colors can go well with clothing that is boldly colored. Yes, neutral outfits can go well with colorful hair, but playing the hair color off the clothes is a great look too.
2. Don’t Combine Patterns.
This rule has been a hard and fast fashion dictate for a long time, but Doe is able to pull off wearing pattern combinations by finding a link between the patterns.
3. Don’t Use a Bold Look on Both Lips and Eyes.
Deere is very firm about feeling this is a rule made to be broken. She like to use eye and lip colors that enhance eachother, like a burgundy lip color with eye shadows in hues of blue or brown. If the makeup is artfully applied it can be a great look.
Not all rules are made to be broken, but some are meant to be toyed with. That’s the philosophy Deere lives by, and it works for her. So why not try it yourself?
