The visionary behind the successful alternative cosmetic brand Lime Crime, is a whimsical, pastel-friendly haired woman that goes by the name of Doe Deere. Doe Deere was born and raised in Russia until she had moved to New York, NY, when she was 17 years old. In New York City, Deere fell in love with the idea of being a musician and pursued her dream while she lived there. She had met her husband while they played in a band together in Brooklyn, NY. The pair worked well collaborating on songs and promoting their band, they eventually decided to relocate to Los Angeles, CA and currently live there. To this day, she feels a strong connection that being a musician had ultimately helped her to know how to market herself in the right light and appreciate her fan base.
When Doe Deere was thirteen, she would get temporary tattoos and resell them to her classmates. Bringing her entrepreneurial instincts to the fore, she would wear the tattoos herself and make it seem cool, as if they were a must-have. Her idea for Lime Crime had sort of the same idea, Deere had a love for ultra bright and unusual colors that were not commonly found in the mainstream cosmetic market at the time. She would post herself online wearing her new alternative makeup brand and it simply had caught on and gained a following. To gt an idea of the brand’s lip palette, they come in colors of deep purple, black, lime green and ice blue.
