Two weeks after the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, we continue to remember her as the style icon that she was, also in terms of beauty. Those who followed her public appearances will recall the light blue eyeliner that Lady Di used to apply to the lower lash line, right?
In a recent interview that her personal makeup artist, Mary Greenwell, gave to Yahoo Beauty, she explained why the princess stopped wearing this matching tone with her eyes and has nothing to do with her personal tastes.
“She was constantly before the public eye. It is not exactly appropriate to be changing your looks every five seconds. I think dramatic changes are not really for someone who is in the White House or in a royal family, it is not appropriate, "he insisted.
It seems that the princess listened to her makeup artist, who always preferred brown and beige tones, with whom she started working in 1991 after coinciding in a photo shoot for Vogue magazine. Thus, little by little we saw how Diana began to opt for makeup looks in more discreet tones, although she always liked to highlight her eyes.
“He loved to exaggerate his beautiful eyes and wear lots of mascara. Although we removed the blue eyeliner, the princess's makeup was still very focused on the eyes. She did not feel the need to be ostentatious, so she kept her makeup subtle and appropriate for every occasion, "said the makeup artist, who has also worked with celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and, following the royal family, the prince's girlfriend Harry, Meghan Markle.
In that same interview, Greenwell declared his absolute admiration for Diana and confessed that she loved experimenting with makeup, but not only or necessarily with extravagant colors. "It was much more about achieving with her looks that she was absolutely beautiful all the time."
