Beauty Look To Borrow: Jenna Lyons' Sophisticated Quirk

Quick show of hands: Who wants to copy Jenna Lyons' makeup look? Is your hand in the air? Are you waving it around frantically? Good, we're on the same page. You see, I'm kind of completely obsessed with Jenna, the executive creative director of J.Crew — and not only because the woman is a genius at making ripped jeans look like they were made to be worn to work.
Understandably, Jenna's eclectic-elegant sense of style has solidified her place on the fashion world's best-dressed lists, but can we talk about her hair and makeup game for second? She's taken the signature J.Crew mix-something-classic-with-something-unconventional approach and applied it as her beauty M.O., too.
Her go-to hairstyle is sleek and simple — you know, the kind of 'do that a TV lawyer on SVU might wear — but she balances it out with loud lip color and her trademark oversized glasses. The look is so simple that even a snooze button addict could recreate it and still make it to work on time. And that, my friends, is exactly why Jenna Lyons is one of my new beauty icons. Check out the slideshow for everything you need to channel her vibe.
