Grimsby Telegraph - - Style & Beauty -

WHETHER it’s for a fash­ion shoot (see left), a TV pre­sent­ing gig or red car­pet ap­pear­ance, Abbey Clancy cer­tainly knows how to make an im­pact. With per­fectly tou­sled locks, sul­try make-up and killer pins, the 32-yearold’s flaw­less on-duty look is the work of a ded­i­cated glam squad – but at home it’s a dif­fer­ent story.

“I am quite low­main­te­nance. I don’t re­ally spend a lot of time get­ting ready as I like to get up and get out,” she says.

The model mum, who has three chil­dren – Sophia, 7; Lib­erty, 3; and Johnny, 9 months – with foot­baller hus­band Peter Crouch, was re­cently un­veiled as an am­bas­sador for hair­care brand Pro:voke, which is why we’re chat­ting about all things beauty.

“I am very aware of look­ing af­ter my hair all year round as I am nat­u­rally dark, and so it does take a lot out of my hair to achieve my blonde colour,” the Liver­pool-born beauty says when asked how she main­tains her en­vi­able looks.

“I also try to drink a lot of wa­ter and green juice to give my skin a boost and keep it hy­drated, espe­cially af­ter not get­ting much sleep!”

Clancy loves af­ford­able cos­met­ics brands too (along­side some pricier prod­ucts) and she’s happy to share what works for her.


“I AL­WAYS have a lip gloss and the Cau­dalie Beauty Elixir in my bag.

The elixir is amaz­ing to spritz when you’ve been fly­ing to re­fresh your make-up, or if you are tired and need to wake your skin up.”

“Day-to-day, I love to use the Sk­inCeu­ti­cals Blem­ish + Age Cleanser, fol­lowed by the Triple Lipid Re­store mois­turiser.

“I also love He­lio­care. When I was preg­nant, I suf­fered with pig­men­ta­tion so to com­bat that I re­lied on wear­ing the He­lio­care fac­tor 50 every day.”

“FOR my hair, my ab­so­lute must-have is the Pro:voke Liq­uid Blonde Colour In­fu­sion Sham­poo as I love the way that it in­stantly boosts my warm blonde hair tones and adds shine.

“I re­ally strug­gled with my hair when I was preg­nant, as it was dry, limp and brit­tle, so I had to be very care­ful with it. “I stopped hav­ing my hair bleached and tinted so of­ten. I also in­tro­duced oils into my hair regime to add some ex­tra mois­ture and en­sure that it was kept in good con­di­tion.”


“MY favourite body prod­uct is The Body Shop Straw­berry Soft­en­ing Body But­ter. It smells ab­so­lutely de­li­cious and gives my skin a pick-me-up when in need of some in­tense mois­ture.”


“DAY-to-day I gen­er­ally go for an off-duty, low-main­te­nance look, with beachy hair and glowy skin.

“I am not a big fol­lower of trends and much pre­fer time­less, clas­sic looks for the red car­pet – for ex­am­ple I love to wear a dark eye with a nude lip. I love the Char­lotte Til­bury Pil­low Talk lip­stick, it is a re­ally gor­geous nude. I couldn’t be with­out the Max Fac­tor False Lash Ef­fect Mas­cara. It opens up my eyes and in­stantly makes me look more awake!”


“I’M quite old school in that I still use Calvin Klein Eter­nity – it makes me feel like a teenager again!”
