In a new interview, Mary Greenwell has revealed the beauty product that was "super important" to the Princess of Wales.

Like many of us, Princess Diana would have had her favourites when it came to her make-up products. And while it's highly unlikely we'll ever know exactly what the late Princess of Wales carried in her make-up bag, her make-up artist Mary Greenwell has just revealed one of the products she loved most – her best mascara

"Mascara was always super important, she liked loads of mascara," she explained to ELLE this month. "[And] obviously great foundation and skincare. She looked after her skin very well. She was extremely good at taking care of herself."

The pair first met on a cover shoot for British Vogue in the early nineties, and Greenwell was the one to convince Princess Diana to stop wearing blue eyeliner.

The make-up artist added that eyes were arguably Diana's best feature, so it's understandable that she loved mascara to make them stand out. "She had the most incredible eyes. They were so charismatic, I mean, she was very charismatic, obviously," she explained.

"She had the most wonderful eyes, they were so revealing and open. She also had a wondrous mouth, but her eyes really said it all."
