According to Mary Greenwell, the late royal's make-up artist, she would not use this specific product on Princess Diana
- Princess Diana's make-up artist shared one product she would never use on the late royal
- According to Mary Greenwell, "there wasn't a signature make-up look"
- In other royal news, this is why Princess Diana's entrance in The Crown spells more heartache for William and Harry
Thanks to the return of Netflix’s The Crown over the weekend, attention is very much back on Princess Diana and her iconic outfits.
The late Princess of Wales is portrayed by Emma Corrin in The Crown season 4, which focuses on the 1980s and her relationship with Prince Charles.
Beauty-wise, while she famously dabbled with blue eyeliner on occasion, Diana's overall make-up look was classic and understated – but she didn't have a single trademark look.
"She always wanted to look gorgeous of course, but there wasn't a signature make-up look,’ her make-up artist Mary Greenwell told HELLO! in an interview last year. "She never wore anything too flashy and was always very stylish.
“When I did her make-up, she only wanted touches that brought out and enhanced her beauty. You would never do something so bold on someone of her beauty and calibre.”
On that note, there was at least one product that would definitely have been a no-no on the people’s princess.
"You would never have tried something so bold such as false lashes, for example. Why would you risk making her feel bad by doing something she wouldn’t like?" Greenwell added.
Of course, some of the modern royals are no stranger to false eyelashes – Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, wore an understated, elegant pair by Velour Lashes when she married Prince Harry in 2018.
The duchess is also a fan of this best-selling lash serum to enhance her natural lashes.
You can always count on the royal family for failsafe beauty recommendations!
