The actions of this man towards his blind wife are an example of unconditional affection.
Makeup tutorials have become very popular on YouTube, with makeup-related videos gathering hundreds of thousands, even millions of views.
It’s impossible to browse social media without encountering users who actively participate or simply observe them.
However, when was the last time you saw an elderly man following a cosmetics tutorial? If you haven’t already, you soon will.
Des Monahan, 84, from Waterford, is a novice in the field of cosmetics with an inspiring story: he is learning the trade for a good cause.
His wife Mona, 56 and 83 years old, is gradually losing her sight.
The condition of her left eye is so severe that she can’t perform basic personal care tasks like applying makeup.
Moreover, her hands are so unsteady that she’s unable to use them effectively.
Fortunately, his devoted wife had a plan.
Des enrolled in a cosmetics course at their neighborhood Debenhams after noticing that Mona valued her appearance greatly.
Des feared that his girlfriend’s vision loss might make her lose her sense of style.
It all started when Mona was invited to a birthday party and decided to have her face painted.
They met makeup artist Rosie O’Driscoll at that time.
Des explained Mona’s vision problems while she was doing her makeup, but he suddenly grabbed the brushes and started applying the makeup himself on his wife.
Makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic noticed Kim Kardashian’s thoughtful gift.
