They say if your love is true, it will last a lifetime. People who are truly in love do everything to make their loved ones happy.
This 84-year-old husband also did something that shows how much he loves his 83-year-old wife. Des Monahan, a devoted husband from Waterford, Ireland, learned how to do his wife’s make-up before she loses her sight.
His wife, Mona Monahan, suffers from deteriorating eyesight and will be completely blind one day. Her husband, Des doesn’t want his wife to be upset about this and wants to make sure she continues to look good.
He said: ‘Mona’s eyesight is deteriorating, and she won’t be able to do her make-up in the future, so I thought the quicker I learned, the better.’
For this, Mr. Monahan decided to take make-up lessons for his wife. He has been going to make-up lessons at his local Debenhams store since October.
The make-up artist Rosie O’Driscoll, 43, is giving him make-up lessons.
He said: ‘After asking Rosie to do her make-up when we visited the Benefit counter I just picked up the brushes and started asking how to do it.’
‘Rosie has been a great friend to us, and we go in daily to see her and so I can get more tips.’
‘It all started last October, but I am now so confident with using make-up that I could even teach my own class.’

After eight months, Mr. Monahan can finally apply a whole look, including lipstick, bronzer, and eyeliner.
Mrs. Monahan said: ‘Des uses eyeliners and lipsticks I wouldn’t be able to use myself.’
‘I struggle to see the colors of different shades now but thanks to Des I now know my makeup will always look great.’
The make-up artist said: ‘They are such a lovely couple and Des loved learning how to help Mona from the very beginning. It was obvious Mona was losing her sight, and he wanted to help her in any way he could.’
‘I know from being in the makeup industry that applying make-up each morning helps people with their confidence as well as it being something they enjoy.’
‘I’m thrilled that Des now has the confidence to start trialing new looks.’
‘When we first started, he had no idea what brushes to use for each part of the face, but now he’s an expert.’
‘We have such a laugh when they come onto the counter at Benefit, but we are friends outside of Debenhams too.’
‘Des and Mona’s story shows that no matter your age or gender there is always new skills that can be learned.’
Mr. Monahan now can do his wife’s makeup like a pro. His wife is losing her sight and will be blind in future that made him do this. What an amazing man he is!
