Every year, many magazines love to print large fashion rules for women to abide in. However, the editors of these magazines do not understand that its not a big deal to break some of these fashion and beauty rules once in a while and still look good. The suggestions given by these magazines are good. They not only help individuals when they are uncertain about their makeup but also help people look good. They should however not bind you to follow them all the time. Some people like Ms. Wintour advocate for these beauty rules, but the famous beauty queen from Lime Crime thinks otherwise.
According to Doe Deere, breaking some fashion rules is not a sin. She has her own fashion rules to break, and from her makeup line, you can clearly see some of the rules she breaks. Her makeup line consists of colorful, cruelty-free and whimsical glittering cosmetics. She has proven to the world that it is possible to be stylish when you have broken some of these rules. She gives some advice to the women who want to look different while staying aside from the beauty rules.
One of the things she tells her clients to the rule that states that women should not wear or mix too many colors. Colors can make all the difference in a woman’s look, and many people believe that too many colors can make someone look scary. Doe Deere has a different opinion to this. According to her, colors can enhance your looks if only there is the right coordination. She loves several colors too, and she wears them all together. When put down on a piece of paper, these colors may look horrible, but if perfectly coordinated, they look very good.
Doe Deere was born in Russia, but her parents moved to the New York City where she was raised. She is the founder of the popular company known as Lime Crime Cosmetics. Her mission is to prove to the world that makes up can do more than just conceal the imperfections an individual has.
Introducing Doe Deere
Controversial with her fashion sense; Doe Deere is definitely a woman who marches to her own individual style beat. Her “signature” style -although she enjoys changing her look up with different colors and patterns- she is known for is her colorfully dyed hair, bright platform and heeled Mary-Jane buckle shoes and her rainbow makeup and fashion. It’s rare or impossible to see Doe Deere in any outfits that are all neutral colors or all black.

She is the CEO and founder of the makeup products company: Lime Crime. This company has makeup that is as equally colorful, artistic and imaginative as Ms. Doe Deere herself. Lime Crime was started in 2007-2008, and the makeup brand has grown in popularity ever since.
Fashion Rules Do Not Apply to Doe Deere
While she’s an incredibly fashionable woman, Doe Deere unsurprisingly does not adhere to any fashion rules that many fashion gurus have laid down that many fashionistas claim are the golden, unbreakable rules of fashion sense. So what are the rules in particular that Doe Deere breaks all the time?
Bold Eye with a Bold Lip
Mixing Colors for an Outfit
Combining Patterns for an Outfit
Socks with Sandals or Open Toe Shoes
Having Colored Hair and Only Wearing Neutrals
Dressing For Your Age
Dressing Only For Special Occasions
The Reasons Behind Doe Deere’s Fashion Rule Breaking
The simplified reasoning behind Doe Deere breaking fashion rules is that she likes to have the artistic freedom to dress exactly how she envisions. Applying her makeup to have both a bold eye shadow look and her lips to have a bold lip color is something Doe Deere does like a class act. She loves to break that rule as it does have a pretty effect. Mixing colors and patterns for outfits is something she does with ease while still looking fashionable by either using complementary colors or colors close on the color wheel. Surprisingly Doe Deere breaking the no socks with sandals rule works because she usually wears frilly socks or rainbow socks with decoration. Doing this actually looks adorable and cute. The fact that Doe Deere wears many colors while also sporting her ever changing hair colors also seems to be a good move on her part. She usually chooses complementary colors of her current hair color for the clothing that she selects. Doe Deere doesn’t allow age or lack of a special occasion to alter how she dresses either, which is admirable and proves just how much of a fashion free spirit she is.
Fashion rules were something that were set in place to dictate the way that people dress and Doe Deere has set out to make these rules nonexistent. She is a beauty blogger who also has her own makeup line. The line is something that she aims to make people feel better about themselves and to make the right choices when it comes to the way that they look. She knows that people should be allowed to choose nearly anything that they want when it comes to their makeup and fashion choices and no rules should prevent them from doing so.
Too many colors put together is something that has been a major drawback to Doe Deere. The general rule of thumb is that you should have no more than 3-4 colors on you, not including neutrals, at any one time. Doe Deere regularly breaks this rule because she loves colors, loves the way they look on her and the way that they make her feel about the way that she looks. There are several ways that you will be able to choose colors and you should not worry about the colors that you are wearing clashing. It is something that can make you feel better about yourself and creating more confidence for yourself.
There are several things that you can do to break fashion rules and many of these things can even make you more comfortable. Among these things include wearing socks with your heels. They are more comfortable for you to be able to wear and they will also look good. As a beauty blogger, Doe Deere has been able to influence the people who follow her by making people feel comfortable with the way that they are wearing their shoes. Not only is this comfortable, but it is one of the most beautiful fashion rules to break.
If you are wearing bold colors and wearing bold options on your feet in the form of high heels with socks, you can also wear bold patterns. These patterns can be anything that you like and will allow you to feel not only better about yourself, but will also look beautiful. Doe Deere knows that you don’t have to worry about clashing and that you can feel great about your looks no matter what patterns you love. Choosing to break this fashion rule is a great idea for anyone who loves colors and patterns.

Doe Deere is the founder of Lime Crime, a make up for unicorns that specializes in cruelty free cosmetics. She has inspired women and female entrepreneurs across the country and often bass about her inspirational speech “Don’t Quit Your Day Dream.”
A fashion school dropout Doe’s journey has not been one of epic proportions. As a child Doe Deere always loved fairy tales which may explain why she has so much fantasy embodied into her Lime Crime products. She first came up with the name after sitting around and putting words together that rhymed and ironically this name stuck. While it may appear that man of Doe’s ideas all fell into place with her fantasy she is the first to tell you that she was not an overnight success and that before she reached this pinnacle of success she had to endure some very challenging times including failing. She admits that she unashamedly failed at many things in life and has truly become the definition of the famous quote: “if at first you don’t succeed dust yourself off and try again”. After dropping out of design school Doe had to learn firsthand what it was it was like to be an independent designer. Her journey in independent fashion as far from easy but she refused to be defined by her failures and credits her success to her ability to keep going even when the rest of the world encouraged her to stop. In a recent interview with Bustle this fashion icon offered a ton of advice to aspiring beauty addicts.
If you are one of those millions of beauty connoisseurs you have probably gave advice a time or two about wearing only one bold at a time. Doe believes the total opposite and there is nothing you can do to change her mind about that. She admits that she likes to break the rules especially when it comes to Blue Milk eyeliner and lip that is Red velvet. Beauty queens can officially jump for joy because if Doe said it, it must be true right?
While we are all about breaking the rules this bright eyed CEO tells us that color coordination does not just relate to your clothes. She suggests that you always take pride in making sure your clothes, make up and hair all match. Yes, you heard correctly but I guess that is easier said than done by this fashionista who on any given day could easily walk out of house flawlessly with lavender, pink or even purple hair. She adds that she does know that the colors may sound a bit much but when you actually think outside the box and pair the colors together it all turns out quite lovely.
If combining a ton of color is mind boggling, then you will probably stay far away from Deere’s next tips on patterns. It may appear that some people were born with the perfect eye for mixing patterns but Deere doesn’t think the perfect eye really matters, patterns should just be fun. Sure, that’s easy to say when you are Doe Deere.
There is not exact recipe to be a youtube success like Wengie. Wengie focuses her brand on beauty and fashion. If this is your niche too, look to her for some advice. Follow Wengie’s channel. Send her some questions. Find out just how she became the brand she is now.
If you do no wish to follow in Wengie’s footsteps, there are other things you can do. You can still become a youtube name. Just take some of the basics that Wengie used and apply it to your channel.
Here are some things to think about:
1)Figure out who you are. Take a look at what you are good at. Promote what you excel in. Do not worry about what others are doing on Youtube. They have their own brand, you need to establish yours.
2)You also need to figure out how much time you wish to spend on the channel. Developing a channel takes time. Do you have a job outside of the channel? Is your channel going to be your whole focus? Figure this out first. If it’s just going to be a part-time gig for you, you have to decide when and how to do your thing. Your day job has to come first.
If this is going to be your main source of income and your identity, you need to figure out the details. You will need to eat, breathe and sleep your channel. Think about it. Are you prepared to do this?
3)Your name will be put out there. You will have to decide to what extent you are comfortable with this. Some are nature born drama queens. Some love the attention. Some do not. Which category do you fall into?
Part of your privacy will be taken away doing this. Be prepared to invite total strangers into your life. Decide to what extent you are going to be comfortable with this.
4)Where is the money going to come from. Starting a channel and getting sponsors is a never-ending battle. Figure out how much money you are prepared to put up on your end. Figure out where the rest will come from.
Give yourself some time. You will not be a famous Youtuber like Wengie right away. It takes time. Just focus on what you bring to the table. Focus on your brand and keep moving forward. The rest will fall into place.
