You're never too old to learn new things, and at 83 years old, Des Manahan is becoming a makeup artist.
Applying makeup has never been something he was interested in, but he took it up when his wife of 56 years, Mona, started losing her eyesight and could no longer do it herself.
One day, Des accompanied Mona to a department store to watch a makeup artist do her makeup and watched very intently. He thought it might be something he could learn to do, so he returned to the store several more times and took lessons until he became more proficient.
Now, Des is the only makeup artist Mona needs, and he knows exactly what she likes. He says, "We definitely don't go for any kind of heavy makeup of any kind. Less is more." (People)
