In an alternate universe where unicorns roam and a balanced diet consists of ice cream and candy, Doe Deere would be the queen of the land. Founder of the cult-classic cosmetic line, Lime Crime, Doe Deere is known for her unique style. She is the pastel princess of the makeup world and now we know the daily routine she uses to achieve her whimsical look!
Doe Deere’s morning starts with two essential beauty staples: sleep and water. She makes sure to get nine hours of sleep to be properly rested, and, living in the dry climate of Los Angeles, she immediately hydrates with a glass of water. She then practices simple yoga stretches to awaken her muscles, followed by a healthy breakfast of grits, yogurt, fruit, and freshly squeezed orange juice (made with oranges she grows herself).
Now, in an age where we’re all glued to our phones, does the beauty innovator check social media first thing in the morning? Doe Deere states that she tries to keep her mornings free from digital information, but is guilty of checking Instagram.
We’re all guilty of this, right?
The next part of her morning routine is skincare and makeup. She enjoys listening to her favorite music during this time. While she has many favorites, her current go-to are The Beatles. They give her a trip down memory lane, as she listened to the Abbey Road album frequently growing up.
The first step in her skincare regimen is washing her face with a mild, rose-scented face wash by Glossier. She then moisturizes with Murad’s “Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence”. After moisturizing, she applies foundation, using L’Oreal’s “True Match” foundation for daily wear and MAC’s “Studio Fix” for going out. She is currently in the process of creating Lime Crime’s own line of foundation!
After setting her foundation, she applies blush and lip color. Her favorite lip colors are “Rustic”, “Red Velvet” and “Pink Velvet”, all from Lime Crime’s Velvetine line.
The final part of her routine is to style her hair, which she curls and wears down to show off its purple color. Doe Deere is known for ever-changing, vibrantly colored hairstyles.
She finishes her morning by spending time with her Persian cats, Puffy Fluffles and Chester von Battingham before leaving for a day of meetings and working with her Lime Crime team. Truly a morning fit for a Unicorn Queen!
