An elderly Irish couple have struck up a friendship with Kim Kardashian's makeup artist

We’re struggling to keep our composure here.

IF YOU’RE FEELING in any way fragile after last night, it might be worth taking a breather before reading on because this is likely to send you over the edge.

Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, has struck up an unlikely friendship with an elderly Irish couple.

Earlier today, Mario shared a photo of himself with Des and Mona – a couple whose story compelled him to invite them along to The Master Class in London, which is an event hosted by the man himself.

A few months ago I heard the story of Des & Mona, a couple from Ireland. Mona began losing her eyesight and her husband Des began taking makeup lessons at Benefit Ireland with Rosie O’Driscoll so he could learn to apply her makeup for her.

We know; we told you it was a heartwrencher.

Mario said that the couple’s story struck a chord with him, and he decided he wanted to play a part in their heartwarming endeavour.

I called my manager and told her i wanted to invite Des, Mona and Rosie to The Master Class and we had to make it happen. Big thanks to @benefit_ire for helping me to make this possible. My heart felt so full seeing them there in front of me.

And if that wasn’t enough, Mario went on to say that Des and Mona were the highlight of his trip to London, and Lord, it’s not hard to imagine why.
