It’s very hard to ignore the purple color of her hair. Also known as the “Queen of Unicorns” Doe Deere has been rocking the cosmetic world especially after the recent launch of her new product, Lime Crime. This is despite her humble background which most people are not aware of. Doe Deere’s success did not happen by chance as she spoke with us. The Founder and CEO of Lime Crime in an interview with us said that anyone has an opportunity to be what they want in life. She says that people should never limit themselves because of where they come from or who they are.
Can you briefly talk about your childhood and how you got started? Yes, of course, I was born and raised in Russia. I moved to the United States when I was 17 years, and I would agree that most of my formative years were spent in Russia. When I moved here, New York was my home before I moved to my current place in Los Angeles.
Have you always been an ambitious person? I think I am good at imaginations. I have always imagined that nothing is possible and that one day I would achieve my dreams. When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a musician something that I did when I first came to New York. I learned a lot of things in my music careers such as appreciating people, professional marketing and stuff like that. I love the fact that I ended up in makeup although I also love the entrepreneurial stuff. For instance, I first owned a small business of selling temporal tattoos when I was 13 years back in Russia.
I like that, for how long did you stay in New York City? I lived in New York for almost 14 years, which is from 1998 to 2012.
Where exactly did you live in New York? I first lived in Manhattan before I moved to Brooklyn and lived there for nine years. I did a lot of things while Brooklyn including being part of a band.
What can you tell young girls who have dreams as you had? The honest advice I can give to anyone out there is to follow their hearts. I believe everyone has something special inside them and if only they can discover that they can go far. Another thing is to be in synch with yourself . Never permit anyone to define who you are, you are the master of your destiny and you have the power to shape it according to your dreams.

What does makeup mean to you?
Makeup gives me the freedom to be who I am, and I would encourage all my clients to feel the same way. They should have the confidence and freedom to express themselves without fear of victimization. You should also know that I come from a fashion background having gone to FIT in New York where I majored in Fashion design. Therefore for me fashion and makeup are inseparable.
