10 Beauty Lessons To Learn From Princess Diana

It is well known that Princess Diana was a great fashion icon, adored not only by the people but also by the fashion designers who competed to dress her. 

Her sense of style has made history in fashion, from gowns with satin balloon sleeves to the tight black revenge dress. Apart from her wardrobe, Princess Diana’s hair and makeup have also left an indelible mark on the world of beauty.

If she were alive, we would imagine her still endowed with that charm factor that made her iconic.

Lady D was addicted to blue eyeliner, at least until she met makeup artist Mary Greenwell, who soon made her abandon this shade, absolutely perfect for her blue eyes, and guided her towards black shades and mascara.

2. Consistent Skincare Routine

Diana followed religious skincare. Her former makeup artist, Mary Greenwell, has revealed to several tabloids over the years that the People’s Princess has constantly cleansed, toned, and moisturized her face with care, as well as never forgetting to remove her makeup at the end of the day.

3. Natural Cream Blush

In her beauty case, there was never even a blush, which naturally colored her cheeks. To have the same result, cream cosmetics are perfect. 

For an even more beneficial effect, you can sprinkle a little bronzer along the outside of the face, and the whole look will instantly appear fresher and more rested.

4. Blush Pink Lips

5. Flawless Skin

She was fond of using rose water on her skin, which was sensitive, and shopped at Guerlain and Clarin’s brands.
