Contouring, a makeup technique that sculpts and defines the cheekbones, jawline and hairline to enhance and flatter your natural features, is best associated with reality show star Kim Kardashian. But Kim may have to hand over her crown as the Contour Queen to Livia Mulac, an 80-year-old granny in Split, Croatia. Livia’s granddaughter, Tea Flago, is a 32-year-old makeup artist residing in Pula, Croatia. Tea, from time to time, travels to Split to visit her grandma, and that’s where it all began.
Occasionally giving her grandma a makeover, Tea posted the makeup transformation and instantly went viral. Tea revealed that at first, she only wanted her grandma to feel pretty and not lonely.
Tea revealed that at first, her grandma wasn’t aware of how popular she had become. Her online popularity didn’t felt real until Tea showed her an article on a Croatian magazine about her. Livia’s story was also covered by major fashion and beauty websites and magazines such as Mirror UK, ELLE US, Grazia, and Cosmopolitan UK. Livia’s rising popularity also allowed her to be featured more often in Tea’s posts.
The posts have inspired her followers and taught them a wonderful lesson that age shouldn’t hinder you from looking fabulous. Supportive comments can easily be found on her Instagram posts. Tea is also generous when it comes to revealing her makeup secrets, as she posted a detailed makeup tutorial of her grandma’s makeup look along with the products she’s using. She also posted more videos of her signature Glam-Ma makeup tutorial; one of them being a light summer look and another one being an evening look titled “Glamour Cappuccino”. Although her skin shows visible signs of aging, Livia’s makeup look somehow still managed to look flawless.
