80s Beauty is Back: Makeup Tips We Learned from Princess Di

INIKA Organic makeup can lift your look to royal heights.

Princess Diana will forever be a global fashion and beauty icon. Nicknamed “The People’s Princess”, Diana’s natural beauty is something women the world over have long sought to emulate. In her younger years, she was never photographed wearing much makeup, relying only on a good skincare routine to make her skin glow. It was only when she was older that she began creating some truly iconic looks that reign supreme even today. We asked the experts at INIKA Organic for some makeup and beauty tips to help us recreate Princess Diana’s beauty routine at home.

#1 Always moisturise before makeup

Princess Diana knew that for a flawless makeup finish, your skin needs to be hydrated and moisturised before applying any products. According to her makeup artist, Diana would make sure she always had a clean face before applying makeup and she would cleanse, tone, and moisturise twice a day! If you’re looking for a high-quality day cream, try INIKA’s Phytofuse Renew Maca Root Day Cream, made with skin-loving ingredients that help to keep your skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day. This lightweight day cream also provides a powerful barrier for your skin to protect against pollution and daily skin stressors, helping you give your skin a youthful glow, just like the Princess herself!

#2 Opt for a natural-looking cream blush

Diana’s natural beauty always shone through and her cheeks always looked fresh, flushed, and healthy. In part, no doubt, thanks to her love for a cream blush. Using the warmth of your hands, applying INIKA’s Lip & Cheek Cream to the apples of your cheeks will give your skin a natural, royal flush of colour. Packed full of skin-loving ingredients like Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E, it beautifully hydrates and protects the skin, leaving a pigment-rich, sheer dewy finish.

#3 Experiment with lipstick

The beauty team behind Diana’s day-to-day makeup looks have said that she would experiment with different lipstick colours based on her mood. For the best organic lipstick, choose a super hydrating and long-lasting formula like INIKA’s Organic Vegan Lipsticks. Available in twelve gorgeous shades, they offer lasting nourishment and hydration thanks to Certified Organic Avocado, Jojoba and Argan Oils, and impart long-lasting rich colour for a totally luscious pout. From light pink shades to darker lipsticks, there’s a shade for every occasion.

#4 Go for subtle eyeshadow

Neutral eye colours were a favourite of Princess Diana, who often wore pale pinks, creamy whites. and softer brown eyeshadows to create a classy and timeless look. To recreate her subtle eyeshadow look, try INIKA’s Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Choc Coffee; featuring two complementary shades made with pure minerals for long-lasting, rich colour. We also love their Loose Mineral Eyeshadow in Whisper - silky nude brown with flecks of gold. Perfect to use as a highlighter across your pressed eyeshadow or as a buildable base eyeshadow colour that can be worn alone.

#5 Try a coloured eyeliner

There’s no doubt that Diana was best known for her eye makeup, with her bright blue eyeliner being one of her most iconic looks. A colourful eyeliner look is a great way to add a touch of colour to any makeup - although according to the experts you should never wear the same colour eyeliner as your eye colour to avoid your makeup looking dull. INIKA’s Certified Organic eye pencils are suitable for sensitive eyes and have an amazing long-lasting formula crafted from natural plant-based ingredients and pure mineral pigments... Opt for something other than black and try one of their eyeliners in Indigo, Emerald or Pure Purple to create an iconic 80’s makeup look of your own!
