84 Year-Old Husband Learns To Do Makeup To Help His Wife As She Starts Going Blind. Des and Mona Monahan are a couple from Waterford, Ireland who have been married for 57 years. Over the past few years, 83 year-old Mona has lost sight completely in one eye and half her sight in the other.
Monas’s vision issues have made it impossible for her to do her makeup, which is why her 84 year-old husband has stepped up to learn how to do her makeup himself! Wanting to make sure Mona still felt beautiful, Des took it upon himself to learn how to do her makeup, and he’s gotten very good at it. “If Mona needed something, I would do it,” he said. The couple’s story has gone viral, and EX1 Cosmetic decided to record a session of Des doing Mona’s makeup as a tutorial of sorts. He can be seen giving out compliments and comments as he gently patted foundation on his wife’s face. He was careful to put foundation on the back of his hand and use a blender to give her even coverage. “There’s really not much to conceal Mona, you’re perfect,” he told his wife. “Your skin looks flawless. Even Michelangelo would be jealous.”
Des was getting Mona ready for a date, which shows how much they love each other.
“One thing I am conscious of over the last few years,” Mona said, “is how often we meet up with people, where you have a couple and they’re looking after one another. Late into life, they’re still looking after one another.”(Story Mark Baker)
