More than 24 years after her death, Princess Diana’s appeal has only intensified. Based on Emma Corrin’s portrait of the late royal in The crown, to the portrayal of Kristen Stewart in the recent fictional story, Spencer, the late princess has as much influence on popular culture today as she ever did. She even became a popular style icon with Gen Z, with countless royal references on TikTok.

Princess Diana’s natural and seemingly effortless beauty is also an inspiration to many. Her gaze opened the conversation around royal beauty for the first time, a public infatuation with which Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Middleton and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have passed on. With the resurgence of ’90s beauty trends on track for this season and the next, it’s no surprise that Princess Diana remains a modern muse.

Find here the products that helped create the classic princess approach to beauty.

Said to suffer from rosacea, Princess Diana took special care in taking care of her skin and was selective with the brands she chose to use.

Another skincare product Princess Diana couldn’t live without was rose water, a product she religiously applied to her skin to keep it soothed and hydrated.
