sienna miller’s BEAUTY SECRETS


Sienna Miller shared her beauty secrets, hair disasters and fave products with Vogue! Here’s a snippet…

Did pregnancy changed the way you approach beauty? I think I learned to take more time. I’ve slowed down – I think I needed to – and I feel much more feminine now so that has definitely had an effect on my beauty regime. There are lots of new beauty products I’ve been using too. I love Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Body Oil – it’s really great for pregnancy. The Mama Mio products are brilliant too, as well as the Cowshed Udderly Gorgeous range. There’s so much out there.

What are your beauty tips or secrets? I know everyone says it, but a good night’s sleep really does make such a difference. Also I do think it’s true that the happier you are, the better you look.

Aside from that, SkinCeuticals is really great and Amorepacific ABC Serum. For my face, I mix MAC Select SPF15 Foundation with an illuminator and I use a highlighter pen from Givenchy. Also from Givenchy I have its Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip and Cheek Balm which is great, and it comes out really pink so you can be quite sparing with it.  If I’m on holiday or want to brighten up then I use NARS The Multiple Bronzer in Palm Beach, it’s great for when you’re feeling a bit pale and English.

Have you ever had any beauty disasters? I have definitely been guilty of overplucking my brows, so that’s been pretty disastrous in the past. Also when I was 16 I had cornrows in my hair. I was on the beach with my cornrows with blue beads at the end, and braces on my teeth!

I’ve also had pink hair – when trying to dye it red – and green hair, when trying to dye it brown. That was awful actually, I used henna, thinking I was being all organic and clever, and it was totally impenetrable – I just couldn’t get it back to normal. The only thing that made any difference was ketchup, so for about a year-and-a-half I had to put tomato ketchup on my hair under heat until it went back to normal.  And this wasn’t even a childhood mistake – I was about 22 so it was all very silly and very public.

Do you like to keep your beauty regime quite simple? In general I’m quite lazy in terms of beauty maintenance. I used to wear no make-up all the time, but as I’ve got older I’ve realised I definitely do need to wear make-up now. Although at the weekend, if I’m in the countryside or something, I just don’t think about it.

Who are your beauty icons? Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, definitely. And I am really fascinated by the Twenties as an era, I just think it was so interesting and such a beautiful time. I love Louise Brooks. It was just such a revolutionary time for fashion. I love Patti Smith for her undone elegance too, I always have. But rather than people I’ll be inspired by old photos, or by particular eras.
