84-Year-Old Man Learns To Do His Wife’s Makeup After She Starts Going Blind





Makeup tutorials are certainly one of the most-watched contents on YouTube and other video-sharing websites. Teens and tweens spend countless hours learning how to do their makeup through videos on some of the popular social media platforms. However, one elderly man’s sudden interest in learning how to apply makeup has a much deeper meaning behind it.

Des has taken up makeup classes so he would know how to apply it correctly for his wife. Mona started to lose her vision in her 80s and her husband made sure that she will still feel like a million bucks by doing her makeup for her.

Knowing that his wife enjoys wearing makeup, the 84-year-old man demonstrated the true beauty of marriage with a heartwarming gesture.
