The Unicorn of Makeup

Lime Crime is a makeup company that was founded just before Halloween in 2008 by Doe Deere. She has a strong love for a large array of colors and as such the makeup has a radical range of colors. The company takes pride in the fact that their products are 100% vegan and cruelty free. Being vegan makeup means that their products do not contain any animal ingredients or byproducts; and when they claim their stance as cruelty free they mean that they absolutely do not test any of their products on animals.

Lime Crime’s products include hair dyes that are semi-permanent and are very brightly colored. They also offer both matte and sparkly eye shadows that range in colors from neutrals to bold colors like orange and green. They offer a couple of highlight palettes that adapt to your skin tone leaving you with a fairytale glow. But perhaps the most popular product is their lipstick.

Lime Crime offers five different lipsticks that meet different goals. Their “Diamond Crusher” lipsticks are iridescent and portray the look of crushed diamonds on the lips. These lipsticks can be worn by themselves or over matte colors. The second type of lipstick offered is called “Matte Velvetines.” These are liquid lipsticks that dry to highly pigmented matte colors. These lipsticks are known to be touchable and kissable; meaning the lipstick doesn’t easily rub off. They also offer “Metallic Velvetines” which are similar to the Matte variety in that the lipstick stays where it is put, but differs in that they have a metal look to them. The fourth kind of lipstick is called “Perlees;” these lipsticks are considered metallic mattes. They leave your lips having a light shine of dusted pearls. Last, but not least is the “Unicorn” lipstick. These lipsticks are opaque and highly pigmented. They are a matte cream lipstick that keeps the lips feeling soft and moisturized. http://www.dollskill.com/shop/lime-crime.html

How to Restyle What You Already Own

 

You have a full closet of items that have so much potential, but how do you bring them to life? The best looks are all about pairing and taking the classics you already have to a new level. Take a look into your closet and assess what you have. Dig deep into the back of your closet and drawers and find the items you haven’t thought about in many seasons. It is time to bring them back. Who What Wear gives their best restyle tips below.

Jeans go with everything, especially over the knee boots. Contrast the look with Levi 501’s and luxurious black leather boots. A loose white blouse will bring the two together.

Layer your jackets to fight off the cold, avoid that awful puffy jacket, and mix-up looks. You can pair your hoodie with a blazer. Or pair a tailored coat with your favorite moto jacket.

Use your accessories to change up the personality of your outfit. Tie a scarf to your or use it as a belt. Add texture to a standard outfit with lace tights or a pin on your jacket. Glitter socks with sandal heels is something no one will expect and is fun for a night out with the girls or an art gallery show.
