Sometimes precious acts of kindness can be hard to find, and it might be the reason why people instantly became obsessed with an Instagram post from one of Kim Kardashian’s main makeup maestros: Mario Dedivanovic.
It was a repost of a photo of an elderly couple in the makeup section of a department store. The caption read: “Why I love my job so much! Meet Jean and Brian, two of our very loyal customers. Brian was in for another make up lesson today as he does his wife’s makeup every day as she is going blind. Such a wonderful couple who live their life to the full!”
Dedivanovic responded to the post with admiration for Brian’s thoughtfulness, and included a callout in his own caption that read: “If anyone knows them I’d love to send them makeup and invite him to #TheMasterClass.”
The post has since gained the attention of more than 122,000 people, with lots of them leaving heartwarming comments such as, “That must be one of the nicest things a man can do for a woman. Hope he gets the makeup lesson with Mario.” Another simply stated, “Brian is my hero.”
Dedivanovic’s Master Class is a huge class that many aspiring makeup artists, as well as those eager to learn about makeup, attend to get firsthand tips and tricks straight from Dedivanovic. Thanks to the internet and Dedivanovic’s followers who are helping track down the couple, making the class connection just might happen sooner rather than later — which is good news, since Dedivanovic’s next Master Class is coming to New York City on Dec. 9.
Brian isn’t the only husband who is touchingly dedicated to his wife. A similar story involves Des Manahan and his wife, who live in Waterford, Ireland. On Oct. 23, Hollie O’Loughlin shared a tweet that read, “So there’s a man who comes to benefit for makeup lessons with his wife so he can learn to do her makeup because she’s going blind.” The post received love from more than 2,000 people and prompted more than 200 shares.

The couple wasn’t named in O’Loughlin’s original post, but The Late Late Show was able to track down the couple (Des and Mona Manahan), and they appeared on the show. Turns out they have been married for 56 years and have a sweet love story to match. Des reflected on how he would sing Nat “King” Cole’s “Too Young” to Mona to try to get her attention and win her over when they first met. “She finally gave in,” he happily shared.
Check out the video below to see Des and Mona and all the #couplegoals realness they portray. It’s hard not to fall in love with these two lovebirds.
