Michelle wows on the cover of her new calendar


How do you beat blemishes?
'Origins Super Spot Remover, £15, is really good at getting rid of breakouts quickly. And I use Origins Out Of Trouble Mask, £23, once a week to prevent them as much as possible. Since I started drinking several litres of water a day I've noticed a big improvement in my skin.'

Any tips for combatting under-eye bags?
'I do sometimes get puffy eyes in the morning so I use Kiehls Eye Alert, £22.50. Benefit Boi-ing Concealer, £17.50, - in a shade a little lighter than my foundation - hides them nicely too.'


What's your daily workout routine?
'I go to the gym for an hour two or three times a week with a mix of cardio and weights. I always hate the thought of going but I feel so much better when I do.'

Any body buys you love?
'I really like Soap And Glory The Righteous Butter, £10.50, or Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Soufflé Body Creme, £44.50. It smells divine and leaves your skin silky smooth. And Vita Liberata Capture The Light in Latte, £29.95, is great for giving a subtle, soft-focus sheen on shoots and the red carpet.'

How do you cheat your big and bouncy look?
'For this shoot, my hairdresser used Beauty Works Clip-in Extensions, from £99.99, for extra thickness. I sprinkle Kevin Murphy Powder Puff, £18, onto my roots. It feels a bit like talc but gives mega volume. And I don't wash my hair on the day I'm going out as it makes it harder to style.'

What's your go-to hairstyle?
'If I'm travelling, I tend to stick it on top of my head in a big bun! But otherwise, I wear it down. I use Bosch KeratinAdvance Hair Dryer, £39.99, and Cloud Nine The Waving Wand, £99.95, which is perfect for achieving soft waves.'

What are your shiny hair secrets?
'I take My Vitamins True Woman Hair, Skin and Nails Supplements, £4.99 for 30, and I wash with Kerastase Resistance Bain de Force Shampoo, £17. For extra shine, I like Josh Wood Glossing Mask, £12.50. And I finish every style with Mark Hill Glam Goddess Shine Serum, £6.49, that's non-greasy.'


What's your favourite make-up look?
'I don't actually like wearing a lot of make-up. I like a tinted moisturiser, some highlighter like MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle, £23, blusher and a good coat of mascara with some natural false lashes. Shu Uemura Smoky Layers Lashes, £18.50, are the best and you can re-use them a few times. I love Eylure Cheryl Lashes, £5.25, too.'

Favourite mani and pedi shades?
'My cousin Katie does my nails. I like bright colours like mint green or yellow in summer and deep plum or a classic French manicure for winter.'

Do you have a signature scent?
'I have loads of favourite perfumes as they remind me of different places and people. It totally depends on what mood I'm in. Giorgio Armani Code Luna, £35, is lovely and I've worn Miss Dior, £55, for years.'
