Doe Deere Has a Specific Morning Routine

It’s not uncommon for successful people to have a morning routine. In fact, it seems that many successful people all over the world have one, including Doe Deere, founder of Lime Crime cosmetic products and she shares all.

First off, Deere wakes up in the morning at 8:30 a.m. without an alarm clock. Her body knows when it’s time to get up. She tires to get at least none hours of sleep every night and she swears that it does wonders for her skin. She starts the day with a glass of water sop that she can stay hydrated in the dry Los Angeles air. She then has breakfast in her kitchen and enjoys looking out the window. Her breakfast normally consists of (her favorite) grits, yogurt, fruit, and freshly squeezed orange juice. She gets her oranges form her very own orange tree. Then she likes to start the day off with some stretches. She especially like s the cat/camel stretch because it makes her back feel great.

Next, Deere reviews what the day holds for her on her calendar via her phone. She touches base with her team at the office and she always has Instagram up on her phone. She checks her emails throughout the day and tries to limit the time that she spends on technology I the morning. She tries to keep her mind as free and open to creative thoughts as she can.

She always begins her beauty routine by listening to her favorite tunes and she is currently enjoying the jams of The Beatles. Deere grew up listening to a lot of Abbey Lane songs and it brings back memories. She starts off with Glossier face wash and then applies moisturizer (she especially loves Murad “Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence”) before she puts on her foundation. Deere likes to use L’Oréal’s True Match Foundation” or MAC’s “Studio Fix” for when she is dressing up a bit to go out. She then sets it with powder before filling in her brows and applying color to her cheeks. She normally spends 15 minutes to an hour on her makeup, depending on whether or not she has just meetings or a more special event later in the day. She especially like to use “Rustic,” Red Velvet,” or Pink Velvet,” from Lime Crime’s “Matte Velvetine” line. Her makeup routine is her favorite part of her morning because it is not only time to herself, but it is a time to open her mind to creativity. She’s working on her own foundation for her Lime Crime Beauty products line.

Once she has finished her makeup, she heads out the door to the office where she has lunch, chats with her team, and holds meetings. But not before spending time with her Persian kings, Puffy Fluffles and Chester von Battingham. She adored her cats. She tries to leave the office by 6 p.m. but on occasion can be there until midnight in order to get all her work done.
