Princess Diana

Why did Princess Diana suddenly stop wearing her signature blue eyeliner?


Every year usually in the month of August the world honours and pay tribute to the life of Princess of Wales, Diana.

Those who knew Diana closely were aware of the fact that she was very fond of applying blue eyeliner.

Royal fans have been sharing stories about the people’s Princess to keep her memory alive. Recently, Prince William and Prince Harry have spoken openly about their most cherished memories with their mother. While the general public who felt they had a real connection with Diana flooded the Kensington Palace with flowers and some emotional notes.

Diana was always revered for her sense of style and her natural beauty. If you look back to some of Diana’s most iconic looks, the first thing to cross your mind would be her sparkling blue eyes with electric blue eyeliner. However, over the years she ditched the vibrant hue for more muted beige and brown tones.

But the question is that why did she stop using blue eyeliner?

Princess Diana’s makeup artist at that time was Mary Greenwell. She has revealed exactly where the change came from. Mary was a highly respected image in the industry at that time. In a recent candid interview, Mary admitted that she herself was the one who convinced Diana to shake up her signature blue-liner.

“I think beige and browns are simply so much prettier. It’s as simple as that. However, she was indeed keen to keep the rest of Diana’s look almost exactly the same as it was.

Mary continued: “Diana was someone who was in the public eye all the time. She presented herself all the time to the public and the media. It isn’t particularly appropriate to go on changing your look every five seconds”. “She did change her makeup a bit sometimes. It’s just that, it wasn’t changed dramatically. I think the dramatic change is just not really something for somebody who’s in the White House.

Diana felt no need to be showy, so she kept her makeup subtle and appropriate for the occasion she attended. She really loved to exaggerate her gorgeous eyes and wear loads of mascara”.
