Raised in New York, Ms. Deere currently resides in Los Angeles, California with 3 cats and her husband, Mark who played guitar in Sky Salt. Doe Deere founded Lime Crime makeup in 2008. The headquarters are located in New York, New York. She believes that makeup should do more than hide imperfections. Makeup should be fun, whimsical, and change your personality and identity. Doe Deere originally wanted to have a career in fashion design and, so studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Before she graduated, Deere decided to start her own clothing line called Lime Crime.
Doe Deere also has an interest in music. Growing up in New York city, Deere took guitar lessons. For awhile, she joined a fairy-tale themed band called Sky Salt. She met a guitarist named Mark, who was a band member. In 2006, the group disbanded. Ms. Deere had to find another goal.
Soon after Sky Salt disbanded, Doe Deere tried experimenting with different kinds of makeup. By 2007, Deere founded Lime Crime Cosmetic Company. The eye shadow is colorized based on astrological signs. Aries is a red eye shadow, Pisces is blue, and Sagitarius is bright pink. Lipstick can come in a roll on or in a tube. The colors come in traditional and unusual, including dark purple, golden-yellow and silver.
In 2008, Lime Crime Cosmetics for unicorns was created. Doe Deere gave up the idea of designing clothes and decided to market her own makeup line instead. Doe Deere had created a partnership with Melanie Martinez, a reknowned makeup artist. In addition to traditional colored lipsticks of reds, oranges, and pinks, Deere also sells black, blue, and lavender lipstick as part of her Crime Lime collection. The eye shadow is shimmery slivery-bluish. Or if anyone is in the market for gold or silver eyeliner, Lime Crime carries it.
Doe Deere has not completely given up on clothing. She has a clothing line with outrageous designs. One particular top is white with black serpent and witchery-like designs on it. Another top borrows from Madonna’s mid-rift styles of the 1980s. This particular top is a black sheer and lacy long sleeved mid rift. Another top looks like it has Tele Tubby-like characters of people, flowers, and a cat in pink and yellow. The flowers have green stems and leaves.
There is even a shoe line. One type of shoe is a black platform shoe that laces. There are bat wings at the top of the shoe. Deere has a pink platform shoe that has criss-cross straps that tie around the ankle, like ballet slippers, only they buckle.
Doe Deere has accessories, such as a pair of socks that match the black serpent design top, perfectly. Earrings that look like the Satanic star are available only in pierced earring style. There are also pastel colored wigs for outrageous girls.
