PREPARATION

Before starting, you ensure your hands and nails are well cleaned. File your nails if necessary, so that there are no snags. By doing this you prevent damages on the face and risk of infection.

Always work using clean materials (sponges, brushes, spatulas, water bowls) and change the water regularly.

Get the subject to put on any clothes beforehand that have to be put on over the head. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

APPLYING A BASE

If the skin is dry or sensitive, than apply a thin layer of Grimas Under Make-up Base: a non-greasy cream with a caring effect. Let the skin absorb it for a few minutes before you start working on the skin with Cake or Water Make-up, thus ensuring that the product has been fully absorbed into the skin.

You can apply Grimas Water Make-up (Pure) directly to the skin, but you may also choose to apply a layer of Grimas Cake Make-Up first. This offers the advantage that the colours of the Water Make-Up colours are more even and more intense (especially the lighter tints and silver) and that in addition, these colours can be removed more easily from the skin later on.

CAKE MAKE-UP

You apply Cake Make-up with a slightly damp make-up sponge. If you work with too much moisture, streaks will form.
You can press the make-up sponge down onto a tissue to remove any excess moisture.

Take the make-up sponge between the fingertips and squeeze it together to create a round surface. With this surface the make-up can be applied.

CAKE MAKE-UP = Cake Make-up
MAKE-UP SPONGE = Make-up Sponge
First dab a little Cake Make-up onto the hand to check the colour intensity. Then apply it evenly from top to bottom. Work the Cake Make-up out properly, up into the hairline, and do not forget the ears and neck. This is how you avoid a mask-like effect. Cake Make-up dries quickly, so you need to work quickly to achieve a nice result. If the result is not even, turn the sponge that you worked with over and use the clean side to even out the make-up. Any stripes after drying can be gently rubbed away with a soft tissue or cloth.

WATER MAKE-UP

Grimas Water Make-Up (Pure) can be used around the eyes, but children often do not like it when brushes are so close to the eyes. So decide yourself how far you want to extend the colour.

When working under the eyes, have your model look upwards - only with the eyes, without moving the head. If you work above the eyes (eyelid), have your model close his/her eyes in a relaxed manner.
Children are inclined to shut their eyes tight. Then you can say: keep your eyes closed as if you are sleeping.

Draw the eyebrows above the natural eyebrows in a high arch. This is how you create a naive effect.

Conceal the natural eyebrows with Eyebrow Plastic.

EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
EYEBROW PLASTIC

Use the convex rounded side of the Derma Wax Spatula to take the Eyebrow Plastic out of the jar. By scraping it out, you already make the texture a bit flexible.

DERMA WAX SPATULA = Derma Wax Spatula
EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
You then make the wax easier to model by applying it to the ball of your thumb and scraping it off again with the spatula two or three times.
The wax must be flexible but also firm and must definitely not be allowed to get too soft and sticky.
Thin eyebrows: apply Eyebrow Plastic with the convex rounded side of the spatula in the direction of the eyebrow hairs, ensuring that no hairs stick out. Smooth the edges flat so that grease and moisture can not get underneath.

Thick eyebrows: comb the eyebrows against the direction of the hairs with an eyebrow brush. Then use the brush to apply Eyebrow Plastic against the direction of the hairs, after which the brush can be used to smooth the hairs in the natural direction. Eyebrow Plastic can then be applied as per the technique for thin eyebrows.

EYEBROW PLASTIC = Eyebrow Plastic
Smooth the Eyebrow Plastic surface and edges off with your fingertips, using a little bit of Cleansing Cream. Then dab it all over with a clean Make-up Sponge. This gives a matt effect and also adds a skin-structure effect. Before putting make-up on this area, apply a layer of Grimas Transparent Powder to ensure the make-up adheres properly.

On top of the model's own (hidden) eyebrows you apply eye shadow, which makes the eyes appear larger.

Water Make-up works just like watercolour paint. Use the brush and a little water to soften the make-up and make it a bit pasty. Test the colour intensity on the hand. Don't work too dry, but do not use too much water. Water Make-up (Pure) dries within 15 seconds.

The shape, width and quality of the brush are to a great extent qualifying the effect you can achieve with it. For instance, round brushes are ideal for making curves and drawing curls. You draw straight lines preferably with a flat brush, keeping the handle of the brush pointed in the direction of the line. To draw a thin line, you do not necessarily need to use a narrow brush. You can also use the edge of a flat brush for that. This brush is also very convenient for making a thick line merge into a thin one, turning the brush on its side in one fluid action as you go automatically changes the line from thick to thinner. When you come to the end of a line, lift the brush from the skin in a single smooth movement.
Hint: to make beautiful, thin lines, you mix the Water Make-up with Cleansing Lotion instead of water.

CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
You draw the eyelashes across the skin with Water Make-up. The more quickly you draw the line the straighter it will be, and the more pressure you apply on the brush, the thicker the line becomes.

Hint: use separate brushes for light and dark colours when working with Water Make-up.

If you do not want the colours to mix, be sure to wait for the first layer to dry before applying another colour over it or up against it.
To get freckles, you use the tip of the brush to make dots.

Apply some Polyglitter or Eye Shadow/Rouge Pearl to the middle of the lips on top of the Lipstick (Pure).

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

Scrape the Eyebrow Plastic off the skin with the spatula. Then massage Grimas Multi Remover Pure or Cleansing Cream into the skin and remove the material with a tissue.

You remove Water Make-up (Pure) with Grimas Cleansing Cream. Massage it in briefly and rinse off with lukewarm water.

Do not use Afschmink, as this contains waxes and oils which actually adhere the Water Make-up to the skin. If a trace of colour is left on the skin, it can be removed with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

MULTI REMOVER PURE = Multi Remover Pure

CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
If Water Make-up gets onto clothing, rinse it out under a tap. Leave the item of clothing to soak in water containing a pre-wash (Biotex). Then wash it by hand or put it in the washing machine.
CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

If necessary, rinse the Water Make-up clean and wipe the surfaces of the colours dry with clean tissues. Let the make-up dry out in the air and only put the lid back on when the Water Make-up is dry. Store it in a dry and cool place until the next time you use it.

The sponges are disposable so you can throw them away after use. If you do want to reuse them, first rinse them under the tap with some soap or shampoo or wash them in the washing machine (in a net bag or pillow case), set to at least 60°C.

You can clean brushes with water and soap or shampoo. Put the moist hairs of the brushes back into shape by hand after washing. Dry the brushes lying flat on a towel and do not place them upright, since that causes the moisture to run down into the shaft.
