Doe Deere, the owner of the wildly colorful makeup brand Lime Crime, talked about her daily morning routine in an article posted by Savoirflair.com. A true rebel and self-proclaimed unicorn Doe Deere got her start in cosmetics at a young age. She started selling in small batches until her brand’s bold colors and in-your-face attitude caught the attention of consumers and became mainstream. Lime Crime also became popular because its products are certified to be Vegan & Cruelty-Free by PETA and Leaping Bunny. Deere believes in her products and even wears them on occasion. However, she is not ashamed to use other products to help her complete the look she is going for each day.
Doe Deere’s day begins at 8:30 a.m. after her optimal sleeping time of nine hours. She contributes her good sleeping practices to her clear and clean skin. After waking up, and checking her phone, her first task is to drink a glass of cold water. Deere says this wakes her up more then any coffee could and it is a great way to start hydrating her body. Los Angeles, where Doe Deere lives, is very dry so she takes every opportunity she can to drink water. Sitting down to enjoy her glass of water also gives her a chance to think about her tasks and plans for the upcoming day.
After finishing her water Deere completes a few yoga stretches just to work out any stiffness that she might have acquired while sleeping and to prepare herself for the day. She says that she is,”not the most athletic person, but I do try to stretch every day” and that just a little bit goes a long way in making her feel good. After the stretches is breakfast, usually grits, yogurt or fruit. She also enjoys making freshly squeezed orange juice from her own orange tree. Deere enjoys eating light meals for breakfast because she doesn’t like to feel weighed down heading into work.
Next, Doe Deere puts on her makeup. She always listens to music while doing so because it puts her in a good mood. Her current go-to music choice is The Beetles. Deere starts her makeup routine by moisturizing her face with Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence which is followed by L’Oreal’s True Match Foundation. She sets her make up and then fills in her brows. Deere works on her cheeks and lips next which she likes to make pop with bold and bright pinks and reds. Her eye-shadow normally has a purple or pink pastel tint all finished with a winged eye by a practiced hand. This makeup routine can take between fifteen minutes to and hour depending on how bold her look for the day is.Finally, Doe Deere styles her hair which is dry because she showers in the evening. She uses a curling wand to make her hair into waves. She wears her hair down because she likes to show off the purple color. When she is ready she heads into the Lime Crime office.
