Doe Deere was born in Russian, she was famous for her ’80s disco music. Currently, she’s known in the fashion world for her Lime Crime makeup collection. Doe Deere relocated to the U.S as a teenager to pursue her career in music as well as start a makeup line.
In 2004, Doe Deere registered lime crime on eBay. She modeled everything on her own. The idea for a makeup brand came from her days while she was sewing when she discovered that coming across bright colors was hard. The brand Lime Crime was later launched in 2008 and since then it has earned enormous success.
Currently, the firm now boasts of owning an extensive line of a variety of loose pigments, four eye shadow palettes, a line of rainbow-colored liquid liners, a selection of glittery lip gloss, a seemingly limitless line of criminally coveted lipsticks, and a whimsical set of pastel nail polish.
To some of Doe Deere’s customers, the Doe’s lacy gloves look like they’re hiding fists of iron, but the real Doe is not a wild person but creative in an unusual way. Unlike other entrepreneurs, she is honest and open about her career in cosmetics.
