There’s one thing that many successful people have in common and that’s a morning routine. Even Doe Deere, founder of Lime Crime has a morning routine that she likes to stick to.
Doe Deere wakes up every morning at 8:30-no alarm clock needed. Her body automatically knows when it is time to get up an get going. Deere aims to get at east none hours of sleep every single night and swears that it is the reason for her clear skin. When she wakes up she like to enjoy a nice breakfast in her kitchen and she looks out the window as she contemplates the coming day. She enjoys a breakfast of her favorite meal of grits, or yoghurt, fruit, and freshly squeezed orange juice. She gets her fresh orange off of her very own tree. She is also into stretching and her favorite stretch is the cat/camel stretch which makes her back feel good. She hydrates with a nice big glass of water to help stay hydrated in the hot and dry Los Angeles air.
She takes a few moments to review her calendar and touches base with her team at the office so she knows what’s ahead. She always has Instagram up in her phone and she checks and responds to her emails throughout the day. Other than that, she tries to keep her mornings free from technology as much as possible.
Next, she puts on her makeup for the day and normally spends anywhere form 15 minutes to an hour on her beauty routine, depending on what the day ahead holds for her. She has to listen to her favorite tunes when she does her makeup and she has been listening to The Beatles lately. Its a bit of a trip down memory lane because she listened to Abbey Road plenty growing up.
She always starts off with Glossier face wash and then she applies her foundation before setting it with a powder. Then she moves onto her brows, cheeks, and lips. She likes to use pink or red colors for blush and a bold red or pink for her lips. She enjoys applying her makeup because it is a chance to get in a little “me time” and she feels like it is very freeing. Deere prefers to shower in the evening in order to give her hair a chance to dry by morning so she can get right to styling her signature waves. She likes to show off her purple hair. Deere’s currently working on her own very foundation for her Lime Crime collection.
When she is all ready, she makes sure to spend some time with her Persians, Puffy Fluffles and Chester von Battingham, before heading out the door to the office. Once there, she has lunch, socializes with her staff, and has meetings throughout the day. She always tries to be done around 6 p.m. but on occasion she is at the office until midnight in order to get everything done.
