Girl gave grandmother a makeover and the results might make you emotional
A loving granddaughter restores a woman's belief in her beauty.
A sad looking woman stares at a camera with weary eyes. Her hair is scraped back in an unflattering bun, her face devoid of makeup, and pride in her femininity.
Goar Avetisyan, a Moscow makeup artist, and hair specialist has been trying to get her grandmother Shuraaa to come into her salon for a makeover for 17 years, and the woman always resisted.
Avetisyan is a specialist in makeovers and has several videos on YouTube with hundreds of thousands of views and 5.2 million followers on Instagram/goar_avetisyan, where her post of her grandmother's makeover went viral.
"Beloved, the most beautiful and kind grandma in the world. She smells so good! What do you think of the transformation, my darlings?"

LIBERATING THE BEAUTY THAT TIME FORGOT
Avetisyan's grandmother, a woman apparently in her late 70s, was wearing no makeup, and her shoulders slumped, her eyes were dull, and she looked despondent.
The makeover expert's first act was to release her grandmother's glorious long hair from its braid, and immediately Shuraaa started to look like a different woman.
THE MAGICAL TRANSFORMATION BEGAN
Avetisyan groomed her grandmother's eyebrows to frame her large eyes - which suddenly looked bigger and greener - and blow dried her hair into a glamorous style that took 20 years off her age.
A REVELATION OF TRUE BEAUTY THAT COMES FROM WITHIN
Avetisyan applied base to even out Shuraaa's skin tone, and makeup to enhance her eyes then added a soft shade of pink to her lips. The transformation was complete, but the true magic was in Shuraaa's attitude. Her eyes sparkled, she smiled, and her shoulders lifted.
The aged, sad woman fell away, and a confident woman with flirtatious eyes took back her belief in herself and in her beauty.
SOME TRICKS FOR A PERFECT MAKEUP
Of course, not all woman can go to a makeup artist like Goar Avetisyan for a makeover, but some tips from professional makeup artists can help women achieve better results.
Experts suggest moisturizing and applying a concealer only where it is needed, and base to even out skin tone and prepare a perfect canvas, then apply powder over top with a puff to absorb oil and to make the cover-up last longer.
Rather than sculpting cheekbones with blush and powder, makeup artist advise the use of a cream blush instead for that glow-from-within look.
