Most successful people all around the world seem to have at least one thing in common, and that’s a morning routine. Even Doe Deere, founder of Lime Crime beauty products, has a beauty routine and we are about to explore it.
Doe Deere always wakes up at 8:30 a.m. in the morning. She doesn’t need an alarm clock, either. Her body is simply used to waking up at that time every day. She makes sure to get nine hours of beauty rest every night and she swears that it is the secret to her clear skin.
Deere enjoys being a morning person. She like to wake up in the morning, have breakfast, and contemplates the day as she gazes out her window. She like to start the day with a big glass of water to help stay hydrated in the dry Los Angeles air. She also like s to stretch every morning. Her favorite is the cat/camel stretch since it makes her back feel good and loose. She enjoys a breakfast of grits (her favorite), yoghurt, fruit, and freshly squeezed orange juice. She gets her oranges right off of her orange tree.
Deere reviews her calendar on her hone to see what to expect from the day and she touches base with her team so she is briefed before she heads off to the office. She always has Instagram up on her phone and she checks her emails throughout the day.
She then gets her face ready for the day and applies her makeup as she listens to her favorite music. She is currently into The Beatles. She listened to Abbey Road a lot growing up and it’s a bit of a trip down memory lane for her.
Deere likes to use Glossier face wash because it is mold and has a scent of roses. She begins her makeup routine with moisturizer and then applies foundation. She uses MAC’s Studio Fix if she’s planning on going out. She is also working on a foundation for her makeup line as well. Next, she sets her makeup with powder and fills in her brows before moving on to her cheeks and lips. Blush and lipstick are the most fun and she likes pink or red blush and bold red or pink for the lips. Makeup is her favorite part of her morning because it gives Deere a little “me time” and lets her be free. Her whole routine only takes about 15 minutes to an hour, depending on what she is doing it for.
Before going out the door she always makes sure that she spends some time with her favorite Persians, Puffy Fluffles and Chester von Battingham. She makes sure to pet and kiss them before leaving to go to her meetings. Once she gets to the office around noon, she has lunch and has meetings throughout the day. She always aims to be done around 6 p.m. but sometimes has to stay much later when needed.
