When 80-year-old Livia asked her make-up artist granddaughter for a bit of a tidy-up neither could have predicted internet stardom, and yet this is exactly what has happened.

Croation Tea Flego showed the world how a clever use of the make-up trend contouring — where light and dark shades of make-up are used to create shadows on the face to emphasise cheek bones and other favoured facial features — can knock at least 20 years off your age.

But more than just highlighting her special skill with a contour brush Flego has also shown just how special that bond between grandmother and granddaughter can be.

Known across the internet as ‘Glam-Ma’, Livia is enjoying the attention and her fresh new look.

“Being in a nursing home and getting reactions from all over the world, means a lot to her,” Flego says of her trend-setting grandmother.

Although Starts at 60 has known for a long time, there is further proof that there is no such thing as ‘too old’.

The transformation is remarkable.
