You’re never too old for a new look.

Luckily for Croatian Livia Mulac, her granddaughter happens to be a very talented make-up artist -- so she knew exactly where to turn when she wanted to freshen things up a bit. The 80-year-old has been dubbed ‘Glam-Ma’ after her incredible transformation made waves all over the world, thanks to her granddaughter Tea Flego.

Tea says when her grandma first got a glimpse of her makeover, the only thing she said was “Holy Crap!” Read more: Russian beauty guru creates jaw-dropping transformations – using only make-up My Granny was always my model,” Tea told Buzzfeed. “She always loved makeup and it was not a problem for her.” The 32-year-old added that being a make-up artist has always been what she wanted to do, since early childhood and she would frequently practice on her grandmother.

“She is the kind of grandma that was and is modern. “She likes to joke, she is really kind and friendly, and recognises beautiful stuff.”
The make-up artist adds that her Glam-Ma is rather enjoying her newfound Instagram fame and her family now calls her a ‘star’.

She also used lip liner and bold lipstick colours to define her gran’s lips and shades of brown to highlight her brows.

“She is not ashamed of her wrinkles and age,” Tea revealed. “But she says, ‘Why wouldn’t I go to the nursing home ball with full makeup and look 30 years younger?’”
