According to an article in Galore Magazine, a prominent fashion and beauty publication, Doe Deere is making waves in the beauty industry—and there’s no slowdown in sight.

Russian-born and New York City-raised, Doe Deere is the CEO and founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics, the self-proclaimed “Makeup for Unicorns” brand that has become wildly popular amongst cosmetics connoisseurs since its inception in 2008.

In an interview with Doe, Galore Magazine delves into the entrepreneur’s journey from early eBay merchant to self-made business executive. As a creative and artistic child with an insatiable taste for color and self expression, Doe’s interest in bright, statement-making cosmetics began at an early age.

With the internet on her side, Doe gained almost instant recognition and popularity for her unconventional taste in makeup. What began as online postings of bright, colorful makeup looks quickly evolved into the birth of a universally adored cosmetics brand, known for its bright, vibrant, and completely cruelty-free beauty products.

That’s right: all of Lime Crime’s makeup is 100% vegan, free of animal products from the drawing board to the shelves. Overseeing all product development, Doe ensures that her own animal-loving values carry through in her brand, its products, and its consumers, setting standards for the beauty industry in a world where the demand for cruelty-free products is growing rapidly.

In her interview with Galore, Doe discusses the ups and downs of running a primarily internet-based company. She loves the advantage of the internet when it comes to customer feedback: the brand-consumer connection is a huge priority for Lime Crime, so receiving feedback on social media is invaluable.

And as for the drawbacks, Doe takes them in stride. She says that the biggest disadvantage of high internet involvement is the propensity for misinformation to spread by way of the web, but she acknowledges that any successful company has to deal with this obstacle. Doe says that she uses internet hate as fuel for the growth and improvement of herself, her company, and her products.

Named one of Self-Made Magazine’s Top Inspiring Women Entrepreneurs, Doe inspires makeup wearers everywhere to different, be proud, and defy expectations. She aims to be a role model for other ladies with dreams of building their own business around what they love.

Few professional women have done more than Helane Morrison to remove barriers for women who serve as top leaders in business and government. In fact, Morrison has actually shattered the glass ceiling in both arenas. And she did it by playing by the rules, with strong ethics and a goal of fixing the corruption on Wall Street. She has now landed at Hall Capital Partners as their General Counsel, Managing Director, and Chief Compliance Officer. She joins a firm that is completely managed by women, a top investment firm in California, with her office situated in San Francisco.

Helane has been through the fires of her own trials, managing the investigation and prosecution of Wall Street white collar robbers who caused the corruption that brought down many of the financial houses of Wall Street in 2007. She was instrumental in the prosecution and conviction of Bernie Madoff, the Ponzi scheme thief who stole millions of dollars from hard working Americans. She was the Northern California and Northwestern Region officer at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) who brought the rules back to life, and thus confidence in the ethics of Wall Street.

Morrison’s career started in journalism before she was recruited to work for the U.S. Federal Government. And, every place she as worked has noted her strong and incorruptible stand against corruption and for good ethical and moral business practices.

Helane Morrison has longed worked with businesses in their dealings with the SEC and litigation in business. She spent a decade honing her legal chops at the law firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. Before that, she had been a law clerk for Associate Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun. She also clerked for Richard Posen, a U.S. Court of Appeals Judge. Morrison was the chief editor of the California Law Review at the University of California at Berkeley, where she earned her J.D. She also has a BS in Journalism gained at the Northwestern University in Chicago.

Since learning how few women were functioning as leaders in the financial industry, she has dedicated herself to make a difference on that score. She specifically left her high-level position at the SEC to accomplish her mission to elevate women’s roles in corporate America. So, not only has she demonstrated very well how a woman can shatter the glass ceiling that once dominated American business culture, she is also dedicated to helping other women do the same.
