If pink hair color and coordinating textures, or perhaps pairing your eye shadow with your matte lipstick keeps you up at night, then these tips straight from Doe Deere’s Lime Crime territory will eradicate the problem. In a bustle article, the CEO of Lime Crime, Doe Deere explains how to achieve makeup tricks that leave a lasting impression. Trust, by the time you finish reading this article, you’ll understand the importance of a balanced look.
So, a smoky eye seems pretty easy. That is, until you have to select a lipstick, which could upset the entire look and venture into a nose dive. According to Doe Deere, the modus operadi has been to diminish the bold look. For example, many celebrity artist will go with a smoky eye and a nude lip and the final result has you focusing on one or the other, so not to take away from either one. Doe Deere says, “who made up that ridiculous rule?” Hey, toss out the rules and pair deep reds with velvet hues that compel on-lookers to stare. I so love that rule!
And since no one knows how to get the most out of vibrant hair colors, and far too many are sticking to black and neutrals to pair with pastel hair, I really love this next rule. “Pay special attention to how your hair color can play off your clothing,” says Deere. Combine pale blues and pink hues with denim and light-colored clothing combinations while saturated hues should be paired with reds and violet based clothing.
Russian-born New Yorker, Doe Deere, the woman behind the thrill of extravagant hair color hues doesn’t believe in a camouflaged industry, but rather a fun-filled arsenal of style. “Color creates emotional and visual impact,” and “sameness is so boring,” says Deere. The self-made makeup mogul started her venture on Ebay, back in 2004. Revolutionary “Lime Crime” broke all the rules and sparked a movement towards pink, lavender and grays, and today, that revolution has grown into a fashion-forward backdrop.
The self-professed “unicorn” has thousands of Lime Crime unicorn followers, and the highly successful Doe Deere doesn’t just stop at hair color and blue lipsticks. Deere’s company has grown into a mega-success for cosmetics and clothing that has even caught the eye of celebrities like Dita Von Teese. The one rule Doe Deere does embrace – “allow the creativity of cosmetics make you happy.”
