Doe Deere-Entrepreneur with a Passion for Color and Vintage Design

Doe Deere immigrated to the U.S. at 17 with her mother and sister and spent two years living in homeless shelters, doing odd jobs and receiving help from kind strangers. Working hard, staying true to herself while she takes risk, has led to a career as an entrepreneur who stays strong in the face of adversity.

She started her first foray into entrepreneurship while living in New York. While in a rock band with her husband, she’d work on the side sewing new clothes or revamp old clothes. Selling them on eBay under Lime Crime, a punky, trendy rebellious fashion line. While modeling her clothes, she became well-known for her makeup looks.

Lime Crime Cosmetics-Makeup for Unicorns

Which led to her first business, Lime Crime Cosmetics (08), a vegan and cruelty free cosmetics brand makeup line known as makeup for ”unicorns”. Knowing some colors are hard or impossible to come by, she wanted to make it possible for other girls to experiment more with color.

So her husband Googled manufacturers, managed to find one willing to take a risk on a new company, leading to their first order of 1,000 pieces. All 1,000 pieces sold out in a week.

Do Deere ran the company with her husband for 10 years before selling it and transitioning to her new, vintage, heirloom jewelry line, Poppy Angeloff.

Poppy Angeloff Jewelry Company

The idea came to Doe Deere after she found some old family heirlooms. Loving the look, she did some research in jewelry design and its history, found she loved the Victorian Era style. With some encouragement from her sister, she launched her new jewelry line, Poppy Angeloff.

Launched in the fall of 2018, Poppy Angeloff’s slogan is ”designed for Victorian Girls living in the modern world”. It’s all about creating high quality, heirloom-worthy jewelry that’ll be enjoyed and even passed down to future generations.

Doe Deere’s process is simple. Appreciate your audience and your customer. Be passionately driven in all you do. Always take the risk because you’ll never know if your idea will work unless you try it.

Makeup Tips From Lime Crime Founder Doe Deere

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. This proverb focuses on the inner beauty rather than the superficial outside. Not along ago, many people would agree with it. But in today’s world, outer beauty not only represents someone’s body features and health but is a showcase of that person’s confidence level. Doe Deere, the pioneer in the modern day cosmetic industry, completely agrees with this notion. That’s why she has come up with many latest trends in style and beauty products. She has opened a number of businesses related to fashion and conducted workshops on styling, showing various tips and tricks. Among all her accomplishments, one thing stands out well in her years of dedication to the beauty industry – her makeup skill. And she has some incredible secrets that she wants to reveal to her fan base.

According to Doe Deere, wearing bold lips with bold eyes is one success move. She urges her followers to break the rule of wearing light makeup for casual occasions. Bold colors tend to change the entire look if they are done correctly, she says. Giving some extra hue to the eyes with dark brown enhances the look as well. In her many workshops, blogs and interviews, she shows how to wear eyelashes in a natural way without decreasing the effect of bold makeup. Then there are colors that is suitable for lips, cheeks and eyes that shouldn’t be interchanged. Doe Deere recommends to stick with brown and black for eye color in her videos and blogs.

Another bold suggestion offered by Doe Deere is to not wear only a limited number colors and patterns. It is fine to experiment with many different colors as long as they create coordination with the outfit you are wearing. That compatibility is a must. As you consider this new trend, it is important to also create a focal point with a matching accessory. One good example is to wear a pair of colorful socks with open-toed shoes, where the colors are matching with either makeup, outfit or both. Otherwise, stick with the monotone colors you look best in.
