1. She always removed her makeup

Between official engagements and royal balls, Princess Diana was no stranger to getting dolled up. That said, the princess knew that removing her makeup before bed was vital to healthy, beautiful-looking skin. According to Mary Greenwell, the late princess’ makeup artist, she always removed her makeup.

2. She changed her lifestyle for her skin

In addition to removing her makeup, the princess was very much aware of how her lifestyle choices impacted her skin. Sleep was a priority to her beauty routine, as well as eating healthy and exercising. In addition, Princess Diana understood that alcohol can wreak havoc on the skin and, as a result, cut back on drinking so her skin was top notch.

3. She had a strict skin care routine

One of the princess’ favorite makeup products? Blue eyeliner (after all, it was the ’80s and ’90s!). That said, the princess’ makeup artist advised against this look, as it dulled her blue eyes.

6. She was open to trying new things
