Look at those baby blues!
Jenna Boulé, Marketing Manager at Apple
Where do you find your beauty inspiration?
"Inspiration can come from anything — doing new things, going new places, and an appreciation for good design. And of course, elements of other people’s style are inspiring to me, too. I love the website Svpply for finding new things. I use Svpply like most people use Pinterest, to curate a collection of things that are pleasing, but I appreciate that everything on the site can be purchased. I also really love finding vintage pieces (doesn't everyone), and have a few go-to places that aren't typically known for clothing."

What beauty products do you absolutely swear by?
"I'm pretty open to trying new products, but there are a few that have staying power. D.J.V. Beautenizer Fiberwig Mascara is the absolute best, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle has been my go-to scent since 2005, and my Jenny Pennywood toiletries bag that was a gift. I also really love Chanel nail polish for the quality and strong pigment of colors. It'll grow out before it chips! Lately, a good friend introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks, which are really moisturizing and come in great colors."
Have any beauty secrets? Do tell!
"I'm often asked, ‘How do you get your hair like that?’ Well, I use a really small amount of Kevin Murphy's Motion.Lotion, and then diffuse my hair with my head upside down for maximum volume. From there, I go back through with a one-inch curling iron to get the frizz out, and tame my ‘fro. Also, I wash my hair about three to four times a week, and rotate between fancy and cheap shampoos every other wash."
Jenna's super-organized cabinet! Jealous?
What’s one thing you splurge on in the name of beauty?
"I'm generally pretty thrifty, but I learned early on there's a big difference between nice makeup and the cheap stuff. So, I splurge on most makeup. I also got hooked on Santa Maria Novella's Body Milk after receiving it as a gift from my brother."
What feature do you like to play up?
"The two features I receive compliments on the most are my eyes and hair. My hair does its own thing regardless, so I can't take any credit for playing that up — but with makeup I'll try to use colors and tones that bring out my blue eyes. Stila makes a great eye shadow trio called Gold Rush that I wear day-to-day, and it can also be used as a great base for a smoky, or more dramatic eye. Very versatile."
