Doe Deere started out as a fashion designer after attending the New York Fashion Institute of Technology. She doubted that fashion was her final destination but learned a lot about trends and marketing as she promoted the products she created. As she started to create her own makeup and share it with others, she soon discovered she had found her true passion. That passion attracted the attention of others and her energy turned into the Lime Crime company you know today.
One of the toughest decisions, Doe Deere, had to make was choosing a laboratory to be her partner in developing makeup. She wanted someone that could share her vision and that would be willing to work directly with her. Once she found the right partner she felt like she had so much more freedom to create the right colors.
The focus of Lime Crime is that beauty should make you feel happy. Doe Deere feels the colorful palettes of your makeup should do something magical. It should have the power to transform you and make you feel happy.
