Doe Deere: An Inspiration to Individual Fashion

It’s not acceptable to mix patterns. You can have dramatic eyes and dark lips. Dark lips are only alright with wild hair colors. Crazy hair colors just aren’t alright in everyday society. Don’t wear socks with open toed shoes or sandals.

We’ve all heard them. They are the rules of fashion. These and so many other rules are made to dumb down individualization and make everyone look the same, but who are these people that decide what is and what isn’t acceptable for you?

Doe Deere faced these things all her life. From a very young age she enjoyed fashion, makeup, and above all… color. She was fascinated with pinks, greens, purples, and all the beautiful colors that make up the wondrous world around us, but there was one problem. When she went out to buy makeup everything was the same. Lip colors were limited to pinks, reds, nudes, and browns. Eyeshadow was all light colors with a few dark things here and there made only to contour. All the beautiful bright shades she loved all her life were rarely found and when they were found they weren’t highly pigmented and good quality.

Doe was inspired to create Lime Crime, a line of makeup that was inspired by her love of color and breaking the rules of fashion. She’s made highly pigmented makeup with beautiful shades that spread individuality. They inspire you to look beyond what is socially acceptable and to look inside yourself at who you really are and how you want to show that to the world.

Doe urges the world to dress and do makeup on what feels right. Mix purple with orange. Dye your hair wild colors. Mix paisley with stripes. It’s ok! Express your individual freedom and be the person you want to be, not who the world wants to turn you into.

She’s made her life’s work about this individual freedom and shown people all over the world that it is possible to become successful while expressing your individuality. Doe can be typically seen sporting wild hair colors and lip colors that your mother would have never been caught dead in. She’s used this freedom of sense of self to become one of the most successful individual makeup creators in the business. She urges people to follow their dreams just as she has in creating this amazing line of makeup that is also completely animal friendly.

She’s been an inspiration to many other upcoming fashion and makeup designers. They see someone become successful by creating what they love and they are inspired to do the same. Doe has paved a way for individuals to get out there and create what they love. She’s leading a whole new generation into a new age of personal freedom and expression.
