Sometimes when you really want something and it isn’t available, you have to create it yourself. That is exactly what Russian born musician turned make-up artist, Doe Deere did when she created Lime Crime.
Deere came to the states when she was seventeen. She took up residency in New York where while performing as a musician she also received a degree in fashion. She was already beginning to sew her own clothing. The artist was drawn to the bold and the bright and when she couldn’t find those colors, Deere decided to turn her existing fashion line, Lime Crime, into a make-up line. Her collection carries the eye popping colors that she and so many others were long searching for. She can easily recall applying make-up on her girlfriends at just nine years old. Make-up and fashion have always been her biggest passions.
Doe Deere is referred to as the queen of unicorns. She calls her fans unicorns because like she, they are all unique and beautiful. Her products, which include lipstick, eye shadow, and nail polish, can be bought directly online at limecrime.com. Deere runs her business out of Los Angeles and is heavily involved with the creation and development of each product. Her collection is animal cruelty-free and she tests each finished product on herself prior to putting it on the market. Deere likes to take credit for creating the liquid-matte lipstick that she calls “Velvetines.”
The self-proclaimed “Unicorn Queen” doesn’t create her shades and hues to make people look beautiful, but rather creates them to help people feel beautiful. She does not limit her products to any gender and endorses both sexes wearing her make-up. The same woman, who now speaks at seminars, once sold temporary tattoos to her classmates at age thirteen. Needless to say, she knows a thing or two about being a successful entrepreneur. If Doe Deere’s name or face wasn’t familiar to you before, you will not be able to forget the lavender colored, sometimes orange, hair once you hear from her again.
