She was getting older and changing her look. What works for you in your twenties does not always look attractive in your thirties. I loved the new look she was sporting in her last couple of years.

Arab/Pakistani make-up?! Is there any such thing?

If Diana wore less make-up in Pakistan then there would be a simple reason for this; the heat. IMRIC Diana visited Lahore in April/May of 1997, a particularly sticky and humid time of year in the city. It's not exactly comfortable walking around Lahore in the middle of the day with a full face of make-up.

I remember when I read that in the early 80s Diana wore "Christian Dior - Sailboat Blue" as an eyeliner or mascara, anyway, I think I copied the blue eyeliner look for months after!

Hi, I just found this incredible site!

I think Diana truly came into her own in the latter part of her life. She was absolutely beautiful and the photo posted above of her in the red outfit and little makeup was stunning.

I wore Christian Dior's Diorissimo perfume for years (very, very hard to find now) because it was reported back in 1981 that she wore it.

Delightfully feminine fragrance.

In a strange twist it was also a favorite scent of the Duchess of Windsor who used to spray it on flowers (as reported by Kitty Kelly and Sarah Bradford) to highten their scent!

I also have a question. I noticed that Diana did not seem to wear lip color to the Versace funeral. Is it an unwritten rule not to wear lipstick to a funeral in Europe?

In photos I have seen, she had on pale pink lip gloss on. In black and white photos, the lip gloss didn't show up well. In coloured ones, it was there. Though with her deep tan from her St Tropez vacation still fresh, the lip gloss looked awful on her.

I'm just glad she quit wearing that horrible blue eyeliner. Just thinking of it makes me shudder!!!
On another note--I know that the way I wear makeup now (age 34) is very different than when I wore it ten years ago (24-where did the time go??). I'd say Diana was just changing her look a bit.
