Whether it’s for a fashion shoot, a TV presenting gig or a red carpet appearance, Abbey knows how to make an impact.
With perfectly tousled locks, sultry make-up and killer pins, the 32-year-old’s flawless on-duty look is the work of a dedicated glam squad – but at home it’s a different story.
She said: “I am quite low maintenance. I don’t really spend a lot of time getting ready as I like to get up and get out.”
The model mum, who has three children – Sophia, seven, Liberty, three, and Johnny, nine months – with her Stoke City footballer husband Peter Crouch was recently unveiled as an ambassador for haircare brand Pro:voke .
When asked how she maintains her looks, the Liverpool-born beauty said: “I am very aware of looking after my hair all year round.
“I am naturally dark so it takes a lot out of my hair to achieve my blonde colours .
“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.”
There’s another secret behind her complexion.
She added: “I always have facials with Sunita at Paul Edmonds, who is an absolute guru and has totally transformed my skin.”
Luxury facials may not be an option for everyone but Abbey loves affordable cosmetics brands, too (alongside some pricier products) and is happy to share what works for her.
Here, she runs down her favourites from skincare to scent...
Abbey said: “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.”
Abbey said: “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 like the Molecule fragrances, and I’m quite old school in that I still use Calvin Klein Eternity – it makes me feel like a teenager again.”
