This octogenarian Irish couple received some sad news: Mona, the wife, is suffering from an eye disease and will gradually go blind. So that she can stay as cute as ever, her husband Des, 84, decided to learn how to do her makeup.
Des declared to the Daily Mail, ‘Mona’s eyesight is deteriorating and she won’t be able to do her make-up in the future so I thought the quicker I learnt the better.’
Just as in love as the moment they met, Des promised to Mona that he would make sure she could be as elegant as always.
Des’s makeup artist had nothing but good to say about his rapid progress: ‘When we first started he had no idea what brushes to use for each part of the face, but now he’s an expert.’
As for his wife? Mona says: ‘Des uses eyeliners and lipsticks I wouldn’t be able to use myself. I struggle to see the colours of different shades, but thanks to Des I now know my makeup will always look great.’ Just even more evidence of the great love that this couple has shared for so many years.
