Giovanni & Kelli share how to get Sienna Miller’s beachy waves and sun-kissed glow.

Sienna’s look is soft and sophisticated with a hit of statement smoky and ladylike cool. Sunkissed skin in the depths of winter can be hard to achieve. To maximize glow, the key is to use cream products as opposed to your traditional powders. Apply cream bronzer in spots that would naturally get kissed by the sun— across the forehead, sculpted into cheekbones and swept down the nose and chin. Opt for a hydrating cream blush post-bronze, followed by a liquid highlighter swished under the eye and pulled back towards the temples.

Brows are full and natural, and eyes are subtly sultry. To create that delicately feminine shape, start by shading the top lid with a deep chocolate/taupe hue for a heavier top lashline. Follow with several coats of a volumizing and curling mascara for super lush lashes. Complete the look with a generously-lined lip with a neutral beige satin finish.

GIOVANNI on Sienna’s Hair: Sienna’s deep side-parted waves bring a hit of beachy, messy-elegance to the red carpet. Start by generously applying a wave spray all over damp hair, concentrating on the mid-shaft to ends. To create more volume for naturally straight hair, flip your head upside down and blowdry until it’s about 50% dry. Flip your head back over once hair is halfway dry and continue to blowdry. To create added waves and body, massage your hands throughout head as you blowdry.

Once hair is 100% dry, use a curling iron to create loose curls. For longer hair, I recommend a 1 ¼-inch barrel. And, for shorter hair, choose a curling iron with a smaller barrel, approximately one inch. When curling your hair, section off strands starting from the back first and moving toward the face. Take two-by-two-inch sections and begin wrapping the hair around the curling iron, leaving part of the ends out. Make sure you wrap the hair in a motion away from your face. As a general rule of thumb, wrap your hair around the curling iron for just a few seconds — the idea is to get texture without completely curling the hair.

After the waves are in place, flip your head over and run your hands through the hair with a pomade, wax, or paste. Scrunch the ends to separate the strands and create added texture.
