Lime Crime Makeup: Tart, Bold and New Social Media Darling

Doe Deere started out small, probably unsure this would ever have legs and grow, but this Russian-born businesswoman likes to dream big. The founder and CEO of Lime Crime makeup has skyrocketed to social media fame, with Lime Crime recently picking up two million plus followers on Instagram.

Not bad for the little girl who developed an artistic talent and love of colors that were vivid and strong. After her family moved to New York, the curious Doe Deere began creating things, sewing clothes to sell on Amazon, joining a rock band and finally finding her true niche in the world of makeup.

Lime Crime has turned eight years old and has lately developed a super strong fan base on the global front. Doe Deere believes in being a savvy internet person, because she prefers an interactive shopping experience for her customers, and they apparently agree. Makeup addicts addicted to her bold crazy cosmetics are more than thrilled to post inspirational photos to Lime Crime’s Instagram with the hashtag ‘#Lime Crime.’  The same hashtag can be used on Facebook as well.

Doe Deere’s message from her blog is to young women and men everywhere is a simple one, telling her fans to experiment with cosmetics and have fun. Most importantly, be fearless with fashion, makeup and hair. Women are so used to the safe and traditional makeup palette that society has placed before them, but that’s what makes Lime Crime different. They’re sort of the outlaw brand and one that has now gone mainstream, with competitors trying to copy those radical colors of blue lipstick and glitter shadows.

Lime Crime lipsticks are a huge seller on many stores, for the cosmetics label, offering women ideal liquid to matte formulas that never rub off. Highly pigmented shades like Pumpkin, Squash, Flamingo and Black Velvet turn heads. Retailers like Urban Outfitters sell Lime Crime makeup, and it can also be bought at their Lime Crime online shopping site.

Lime Crime is a proud cruelty-free, vegan cosmetics company based in Los Angeles, CA.

Makeup junkies and those looking for modern cosmetics trends can follow Lime Crime makeup on Instagram at @limecrimemakeup.

Sanjay Shah Shows How To Win In The End With Solo Captial

After a very successful career with the big finance houses, working for Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, and Merrill Lynch, Sanjay Shah found himself downsized in 2007. Wall Street was in free fall and dropping the nation into a deep recession because of rampant corruption. Sanjay Shah did not let it keep him down. He did a most ambitious and gutsy move, he started his own company: Solo Capital Holdings. This grew out of his original small company, Aesa S.a.r.l. Some critics panned his effort then. They have nothing bad to say now. Shah’s gamble paid off quite handsomely.

Shah’s company owns the brands Solo Capital UK and Solo Capital Limited, both headquartered in London, England. Along the way, he has acquired other companies and started still others, located in Dubai, Malta, the Cayman Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Luxembourg. Altogether, his early efforts to recover his career landed him in the upper stratosphere of the wealthy; earning him over £19 million pounds at that time. He even got back into investment banking, buying Old Park Lane Capital. Now he lives in Dubai as a wealthy retired philanthropist and is estimated to have a total net worth of $280 million USD.

These days Sanjay Shah is very busy, even though he claims to be completely retired from business. He founded Autism Rocks, his charity to help fund autism research through high-ticket private music concerts. He got the idea from his friend, recording artist and hip hop superstar Snoop Dogg. On a visit to Shah’s family home in Dubai, Snoop was told that Shah’s son had recently been diagnosed as being autistic. Snoop immediately saw a way for Shah to really help that situation. He suggested that Shah launch his own venue into the music business by holding private concerts to pay for autism treatment and basic causes research. Shah took Snoop’s suggestion to heart and started Autism Rocks, which has hosted many private concerts that has raised over $15 million. All the proceeds go to Cambridge University study’s trust: Autism Research Trust. Concerts have been put on in both Dubai and London with great world-class DJs and big name stars, such as Snoop Dogg, Prince, Drake, Michael Bublè, and Lenny Kravitz.

More Holidays for Venezuelans?

It seems that Venezuelans will get more state holidays. As Daily Caller reports, for the next two months, Fridays will be off. That would be great if the country was so rich that they could afford to work less.
But, Venezuela is going broke. When oil was trading at nearly $150 a barrel, the former populist president, Hugo Chavez, started spending money left and right. Now, with oil less than $40 a barrel, this oil-rich nation is experiencing some major economic problems.

The current Venezuelan President, Nicolas Maduro, has found himself in a difficult situation. In order to look for savings, and at the same time to make citizens happy, he just announced free Fridays. The reason behind this move is to save energy says expert Jose Manuel, even at the cost of production- something that may seem like an insane idea- but according to Venezuelan form of Socialism, isn’t necessarily so.

Both foreigners and many Venezuelans are already mocking Maduro and his so-called solutions on their twitter posts.

Why Consider Investment Banking

Investment banking is probably one of the riskiest businesses in the banking world. An investment bank serves as an agent to entities such as corporations, government, and other big organization. The investment banks raise capital for these companies. They also advise the organizations on how to place investment options and in most cases they facilitate mergers and acquisitions.

Investment banking requires top, notch research skills, and an observational eye. Convincing people to invest in big venture requires a set of people skills. Suffice to say it is not trading for the faint hearted as Martin Lustgarten has proved with his success.

Why investment banks are important

Investments banks save organizations the hustle of research. They collect information on companies and use it to advise their clients on which stocks to buy and when to sell for most profits.

It is illegal for banks to engage in proprietary trading. Investment banks come in where they have trading departments that can carry out bonds and stocks transactions for the banks and other firms.

Asset management is one of the other departments in investment banking. It needs the experience to decide on the right stocks, real estate among other investments to best suit an organization’s needs.

Investment banks advice companies on when to bring together their assets to market to other investors. When organizations bring together assets and sell off, it serves as a fixed income product for the company.

Learning About the Billionaire Philanthropist George Soros

George Soros is one of the richest individuals in the entire world on politifact.com, but he was not born into the immense wealth he would have later in life. George Soros paved his own path to success, and he was indeed very successful. Today, George Soros is 85 years old and still seems to be going strong. He will always be known as one of the best businessmen in the world and a very giving philanthropist throughout his life as well.

Biography of George Soros

Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary. His date of birth was the 12th of August in 1930. At the age of 17, he was forced to flee his native home. This was because at 17, the year was 1947, and the remains of war torn Europe were still a problem on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/. To get away from it all, he went to England, and there he began what would become a great career of making business and making money.

Everything began at the London School of Economics. George Soros on nytimes began studying at the London School of Economics in 1948 when he was just 18 years old. Once he had completed his work there in 1952, he graduated and began working straight away. In fact, he began working directly in the field of investment banking.

His first job was an entry-level position at a bank in London, England. Soon after holding this job in London, he decided to make a big move across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1956 when George was only 26, he sailed to the United States and got a position in New York. His first professional investment and analyst position was at the firm of F.M. Mayer. Soros worked at this firm from 1956 until 1959. Later, he moved to Wertheim & Co. He stayed Wertheim & Co. from 1959 to 1963, transitioning in 1963 to Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder. Soros stayed at Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder for 10 years from 1963 until 1973 when he was 43 years old. This is when he decided to go out by himself and found his own type of investing.

Soros started a hedge fund of his own on politico.com and called his new company Soros Fund Management in 1973 after he left his job at Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder. At first, things were difficult as they always are with new start ups, but he seemed to evolve very well, and soon, Soros Fund Management became extremely well-known. He was doing very well. His company changed names shortly after gaining success and became the respected Quantum Fund that most people know today.

George Soros Today

Once Quantum Fund had gained a large amount of success in the 1980s, George decided to stop the daily management of his fund and move on to something he was more passionate about. He became a well-known philanthropist and has donated a large amount of money to many of the causes he is passionate about. Today, George Soros is worth approximately $24.9 billion. He resides in Katonah, New York and has five children.
