    Mona said, "I struggle to see the colors of different shades now, but thanks to Des I now know my makeup will always look great."

    The couple met with a makeup artist named Rosie O'Driscoll, who they formed a bond with during their lessons.

    Des said, "Rosie has been a great friend to us and we go in daily to see her so I can get more tips."
