84 Year Old Husband Learns Make-Up Tips For Blind Wife

A doting 84 year old has mastered how to perfect his wife’s make-up before she loses her sight.

Des Monahan was determined to ensure his wife, Mona, 83, always felt and looked her best – and he wasn’t going to let her deteriorating eye sight get in the way.

After meeting make-up artist, Rosie O’driscoll, 43, at their local Debenhams’s store, Des began practicing how to apply a full face of make-up for the first time in his life.

Their regular lessons have taken place since last October but it’s only now, eight months later, that Des has mastered his new skill and can apply Mona’s make-up from the comfort of their home.
