From Rags to Richet: Doe Deere

The makeup and cosmetics industry has been on a stable uprising boom for centuries and centuries now. With the use of kohl in the Ancient Egypt times, to the modern make up and cosmetic products of today.

One of the most popular in the internet in the category of cosmetics and makeup is Lime Crime. It’s arguably one of the top brands that are circulating on the internet. And just like any other brand, Lime Crime shared a very interesting past.

Xenia Vorotovia, or most popularly known as Doe Deere, is the owner and creator Lime Crime, one of the brands that the internet community absolutely loves. But like any other brand, all has its small beginnings.

Xenia Vorotovia originally was from the Soviet Union, here she was raised like a Jew was supposed to be raised. The pop culture and music of the United States has piqued Xena Vorotovia’s attention and slowly she became a fan and fell in love with the United State’s pop culture. And so when she was 17, she convinced her mother and younger sister to chase her dreams in New York – and there they experienced hardships on hardships. To the point where Xenia’s family were piss poor and they were just transferring from one shelter to another. This went on for months and months on end until they met a guy and a non profit company to help her family get back on their feet once more.

From then, she built herself from the ground up and now she’s her own star. She owns a million dollar worth business and now she lives in a huge two story home somewhere in LA.

Xenia Vorotovia, or Doe Deered ’s is a story of success, faith and hardwork. This was not a story of luck, this was a story of carving your path and adaptation. Xenia’s has proven herself working in America, and he has the heart of gold that brings smiles to everyone around her. She had also proven to the world that she is one of a kind and a reckon to be dealt with. She had proven that if one can dream it, one can do it! Long live the American Dream!

Makeup And Jewelry Designer Doe Deere: From Homeless Beginnings To All-American Dream

It’s been an incredible journey thus far for Russian-born native Doe Deere, and most people are unaware of the entrepreneur’s early struggles and drive to succeed.

Doe Deere, her mother and younger sister set out for the American Dream some 20 years ago, leaving small Izhevsk for the huge metropolis of bustling New York City. As immigrants, the trio had long dreamed of the many opportunities available in America and was excited to plant their feet on the ground and get running.

At the time, Doe Deere (Xenia Vorotova ) was 17, and all three eventually found themselves swallowed up by the grandness and toughness of NYC. The hardworking, petite women took all kinds of jobs to stay afloat and keep food on the table, but it was almost impossible to pay mounting bills and maintain a decent lifestyle.

Soon, the three ended up in a homeless shelter on Manhattan’s Lexington Avenue. Living in cramped quarters and standing in line for free food at a nearby church became the routine, but the women saved their money and later, stumbled on to Sanctuary for Families.

The non-profit connected the trio to better jobs and educational opportunities, and by 2000, they moved into East Harlem’s Lehman Projects on 110th Street. Again, a tough situation with rampant gang activity, but the three pursued their dreams, and life began looking up.

In 2008, Doe Deere took her creative spirit, artistic talent and entrepreneurial drive to launch beauty company Lime Crime. It was a major gamble trying to put out a brand of makeup, but Doe Deere used her street vibe, trends and love for wildly colored cosmetics to make her mark.

The e-commerce makeup line became a hit with millennials and celebrities, and Doe Deere moved the company to Los Angeles and employed 35 people.

Today, Doe Deere has branched out to another love, jewelry; she’s ready to debut her new brand PoppyAngeloff.

Doe Deere believes that immigrants also help make America great. The path to the American Dream is challenging with many twists and turns, but the rewards are worth every precious step taken.
