An 84-year-old devoted husband has taken up makeup lessons to help his wife look good after her eyesight began to deteriorate.
The British couple, Des and his wife Mona, have been married for a whopping 56 years, Briefly.co.za learned.
Recently, Mona's eyesight became worse and she could no longer apply her makeup properly. This prompted Des to do something about it.
In a video shared by the BBC, Des said he first gave makeup lessons a try when Mona wanted to look and feel good for an upcoming birthday party.
He received his classes from professional makeup artist Rosie O'Driscoll, who has praised Des' skill:
If you just see the way he holds the brushes, he's a natural.
Des and Mona's amazing love story came to the attention of Mario Dedivanovic, Kim Kardashian's makeup artist. He was so touched that he arranged to meet them.
Meanwhile, the loving couple have come to an agreement regarding how much makeup she needs. Des said:
Mona and I both agree on one thing — that less is more. And there's no way I want my lovely Mona slapped up with stuff.
Mona agreed, "He thinks I'm lovely as I am."
