This 80-Year-Old Woman Got A Batshit Makeover From Her Make-Up Artist Granddaughter
Just in time for the widespread festivities of Mother’s Day, this grandma got a shocking makeover that truly elevated the concept to a higher art form and full-on language of love. The 80-year-old, affectionately called “Grandma Livia” by her family, resides in Croatia where her granddaughter is the well-known makeup artist Tea Flego. When talking about her career path, Flego said she’s had an interest in cosmetology since childhood and would often practice doing makeup on her grandma.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Flego said:
“My grandma was always my model. She always loved makeup, and it was not a problem for her.”
Grandma Livia’s modeling experience shows through in the makeover photos, as she’s not only comfortable in front of the camera, but completely working it. Who wouldn’t though, if their granddaughter lovingly applied a gorgeous color palate of pinks and silvers? She looks like an animated Disney Queen come to life, with her various bright floral blouses completing the look. Grandma Livia has obviously come to party and there’s no stopping her from stealing the spotlight (and possibly your man).
Once the photos were posted, they unsurprisingly achieved viral fame status — which grandma Livia apparently loved.
When asked about Livia’s initial response to the makeover inquiry, Flego said:
“She is not ashamed of her wrinkles and age. But she says, ‘Why wouldn’t I go to the nursing home ball with full makeup and look 30 years younger?'”
I feel you grandma — who the hell doesn’t want to be the belle of the ball when presented with the opportunity?!
Once she achieved viral fame, her new nickname “Glam-Ma” quickly replaced Livia. It really needs no explaining, as she’s offering up several fucking servings of glam in these photos.
That lip color has elevated her into a full-on glowing beam of a woman.
It’s obvious by her flirty lip-kiss that if Glam-ma makes the decision to come for your man, she is going to bring her full arsenal of game.
The artistry of the step-by-step contouring is beyond me. I’m barely patient enough to apply my mascara without further staining my dark under-eye circles. Watching someone put in the level of meticulous care and professionalism that Flego applied to Glam-ma’s face is as much a display of diligence as it is a labor of love.
Plus, Glam-ma gives off heavy vibes that she was born for the spotlight. Work!
