Most of us remember Princess Dianna, the beautiful, naturally flawless woman who had the whole world captivated by her.
Even when she was traipsing across mine infected land, Princess Di as she became affectionately known as, always looked stunning. Recently, her make-up artist Mary Greenwell, who worked with Princess Di on her Vogue shoot in 1991 spoke to Stylist magazine about her beauty, describing her as having the “most incredible skin”.
However, Mary admits that there wasn’t much more to Diana’s beauty regime than simply taking care of herself, saying: “After I started working with her, Diana did everything in moderation. She cut back on drinking so her skin was 100 per cent.”
When doing Dianna’s make-up, Mary would simply moisturise the skin, apply a foundation and lift the eye area with concealer. She would finish off the look with mascara on the upper and lower lashes, a little blusher on her cheeks and a little lipstick on her lips.
It seems that Diana wasn’t afraid to try new things either with Mary admitting: “Diana was always very open and willing with her style.”
“'I think as soon as we worked together she realised the power of hair and make-up and that is something that should never be underestimated. By anyone.”
