Doe Deere – article recap

Doe Deere is big name in the beauty industry at the moment. If you haven’t heard of her yet, she is the founder of the hot makeup brand Lime Crime. She is a hot topic right now, and thanks to our friends over at Savoir Flair, we can read all about how she starts her day and creates her signature look.

 

She starts off with he fact that she has what she calls “a good built-in clock.” She can tell herself what time she needs to wake up in the morning, and her body wakes up naturally at that time, which is typically 8:30 a.m. Next she mentions that she drinks a full glass of water first thing when she gets up. She claims this is necessary because of the dry Los Angeles air which can be very dehydrating. Once she is hydrated and ready to go, she likes to do stretches. She says she is “not the most athletic person,” but she still tries to stretch everyday because it helps to loosen up her back. She even tells us that her favorite stretch is the “cat/camel.” After she’s hydrated and stretched out, she likes to make breakfast, which usually consists of grits, but she sometimes mixes it up and has fruit and yogurt. She also particularly likes fresh squeezed orange juice made from oranges from her very own tree. After breakfast is when she checks her calendar on her phone, her emails and Instagram. However despite all this, she does say she tries to keep her morning as digital-free as possible.

 

Next is when the real fun happens; her morning beauty routine. She says it’s her favorite part of the morning because she “gets to spend time with herself.” She always plays music when doing her makeup, and she mentions that her current favorite to listen to The Beatles. She starts out with the Glossier face wash, and then moisturizes with the Murad ‘Hydro Dynamic Quenching Essence’. Then she moves on to her makeup. The key components of her makeup routine are her foundation- which she says she is currently in the process of creating one for Lime Crime (yay!)- and her lip color. She switches between two foundations; L’Oreal True Match for everyday or MAC Studio Fix for going out. She then sets her face with powder, fills in her brows and then applies blush and lipstick. Her favorite lip colors right now are all from the Lime Crime’s “Matte Velvetine” collection. Her whole makeup routine can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on how detailed she is being, and when she is done with her makeup, she uses a curling wand to create her signature “shiny curls.”

 

After she is fully ready, she goes into the office which is usually around noon. She says she tries to get out by six o’clock, but depending on how the days going she can stay until midnight. And that is the typical day of Lime Crime founder Doe Deere.
