Davina McCall

Davina McCall is a woman divided when it comes to beauty. On the one hand, she’s been influenced by her mother, a woman who would ‘ walk into a room and magnetise everybody - she was always looking amazing, always made up, always moisturised.’ And then there’s the grandmother she lived with for nine years, a woman who ‘never wore a jot of make-up - stuff and nonsense.’

It’s easy to see the influence of both these women when contemplating Davina, and some of her success as a presenter and broadcaster can surely be attributed to the combination of her granny’s down to earth persona that’s sprinkled with a little of the star quality her mum clearly passed down to her.

In this episode of Beauty Full Lives, Davina discusses those women who shaped her youth, the products that she remembers from different periods of her life, and also some of the things she thinks are brilliant now, from tubing mascara to therapy.
