Taking Hints from Doe Deere: Starting an Entrepreneurial Endeavor

Posted by WA6 on

Doe Deere, founder of Lime Crime cosmetics, knows what it takes to be successful. Never taking no for answer is the first step. Prior to her makeup brand’s international success, she was told that selling lipstick online, let alone any other cosmetic product would be an impossible feat to accomplish. On a mission to prove the naysayers wrong, Deere developed her passion of nontraditional bright and colorful makeup into a successful business and incorporated her personal brand into a full-blown cosmetic line. In 2008, Lime Crime was born out of a little bit of self- belief, a little bit of perseverance, and a whole lot of contrasting hues of makeup. Learn more:


The idea for Lime Crime originated from Deere’s eBay account. The account featured Deere selling and modeling her own clothing lines with a different makeup look each time. Straying away from clothes and into the world of luminous makeup hues, Deere developed her passion for glittering colors into an animal friendly cosmetic line. Today, Lime Crime’s success is seen within its international following of customers who, like Deere, believe in shining as bright as their neon-colored lipstick covered lips. Learn more:


Recently, Doe Deere offered advice on how her personal brand stemmed into a successful business niche. From passion to business, Deere is an inspiration for those looking to start their own entrepreneurial endeavors.


A combination of factors are required when starting a business. Doe Deere knows success doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, caring about what you are doing will help get you going in the right direction, however, passion will keep you going when things get hard.

Furthermore, planning how you will fuel your passion from Point A to Point B is necessary. An organized business plan is required to piece everything together for not only your own benefit, but for possible outside investors as well. Learn more:
