Discover Your Inner Unicorn with Doe Deere

Doe Deere, the face behind the ultra-successful Lime Crime cosmetic brand, wants us all to find our inner unicorn. Using the terms she reserves for people that are just a little bit different, brave, creative and daring, Deere believes a bit of the unicorn spirit lives in all of us. In a recent interview with Bustle, Doe Deere sat down to discuss the fashion rules that are meant to be broken.

Be Bold

General make-up rules dictate that you should pick either a bold eye or a bold lip. Deere claims this isn’t so and often feels most comfortable in a makeup look that is universally bold. Choose the colors and pairings that speak to you, that make you feel beautiful. If that means a smoky eye paired with a deep, red lip, more power to you.

Be Careful Mixing Colors

Another fashion “rule” worth breaking concerns mixing colors. Deere encourages everyone to take a risk and play with color. Do not be afraid to experiment with blending brights and pastels, neutrals and neons or any other combination that makes you jump for joy.

Avoid Too Many Patterns

Next to mixing colors, Doe Deere loves to play with patterns. While she agrees that creating a beautiful look featuring multiple patterns can be intimidating, it can also be breathtaking.

Avoid Socks with Heels

Socks allow you to accessorize every outfit with personality, according to Deere. A self-proclaimed owner of more than 100 pairs of socks, Deere believes they are an easy way to add color and fun to any outfits. Mix and match your heels and your favorite socks.

Bold Hair, Neutral Outfit

While neutral clothing provides a blank slate for brightly hued hair, you do not have to avoid colorful outfits. Deere encourages mermaid haired beauties to pay attention to color saturation. Pair pastel locks with light, soft colors.

Dress Your Age

Deere believes there is no such thing as dressing your age, or dressing for a certain occasion. Instead, she believes in dictating your own wardrobe. Put together outfits that make you feel happy, beautiful and daring. Do not be afraid to wear that tulle skirt at any age, or a glittery jacket while shopping for groceries.
