Doe Deere is known internationally by her incredible Lime Crime Cosmetics company. She was born in Russia and spent half her youth there before moving to the states and calling New York her home. She has moved from New York since then and is residing in Los Angeles. Her dreams at the time she lived in New York, was to become a musician, and she did. But shortly after that, she found herself dabbling in the fashion world that ultimately landed her in cosmetics. What started off as a DIY fashion line on eBay, quickly turned into something more. Her personality is much like her fashion statement, bold, beautiful, and bright.

Makeup gears towards covering imperfections or enhancing natural beauty. But Doe Deere’s sights went beyond that. She wanted to create those same fashion colors that she wore. She is a visionary and her success shows just that. Lime Crime Cosmetics was officially created in 2008. The cosmetics line spilled forth colors so appealing that it took off. Lime Crime Cosmetics sells fashion colors in nail polish, eye shadows, and lipstick. All of Lime Crime Cosmetics are animal friendly. Nothing is tested on animals. Doe Deere insist she test each product on herself and that ensures the highest of quality to the consumers.

Doe Deere has always seen herself as an entrepreneur. Even at the young age of 13, she began selling temporary tattoos to her classmates. That is when her business and marketing edge first came to light. And from that point on, from her music career to cosmetics, she has had plenty of experience in that field. Her partner in crime, Mark, is also her husband. They have been together since their rock band and now run Lime Crime Cosmetics as a team. He is her inspiration, her rock.

If Doe Deere could give advice to young, female entrepreneurs is to follow your heart. She feels that every individual has something great to offer. And its when you tune into that specialty, that unique quality, you begin to bloom and live up to your fullest potential. Being in tune with yourself helps you understand the value of your worth, your dreams worth, and make that into a reality. Being different doesn’t mean that you are alone and unimportant. Doe Deere said she learned later on that even if she was different, that she was a part of the universe and somewhere, someone felt the same as her.
