PUT READY

Set out ready for use:
Towel / cape
Tissues
Cotton buds
Cotton wool pads
Eyebrow Brush

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

First degrease and clean the skin you are going to be working on with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. Then dry the skin with a tissue.

If the skin is somewhat dehydrated or sensitive, you can apply a thin layer of Grimas Under Make-up Base after the cleansing.

Conceal the natural eyebrows with Eyebrow Plastic.

EYEBROW PLASTIC

Grimas Eyebrow Plastic is a transparent wax that is used for covering up eyebrows. The texture adheres to the skin well and remains elastic.

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
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.

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. Powder the whole with a make-up sponge with Grimas Transparent Powder to matt and fix it; then turn the sponge over and continue dabbing with the clean side until the excess powder has been removed.

Grimas Cake Make-up is a basic make-up that is easy to apply. It is used for visagie (television, film and photography) and as the basis for water make-up.
Do not use a greasy cream under the Cake Make-up.

Procedure
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.

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.

Cake Make-up gives a matt finish which does not need to be powdered off and stays in place well. If you do still want to powder off lightly, for example for photography, use Grimas Compact Powder or Make-up Powder.

Draw the eyebrows above the natural eyebrows in a thin shape. This is how you create a 1930s look.
Apply eyeliner along the lower and upper edges of the eyelashes.

Hint: to make beautiful, thin lines, you mix the Water Make-up with Cleansing Lotion instead of water.

Eyeshadow
On top of the model's own (hidden) eyebrows you apply eye shadow, which makes the eyes appear larger.
Eyeshadow/Rouge and Pearl Eyeshadow are very colour-intensive.

Lips
To emphasise the contours or to change them, you draw lines qith a lip pencil, working from the outside inwards. Take the Lipstick (Pure) out with a spatula and apply it with a lip brush. First colour the middle of the lips and then colour the edges, working from the outside inwards. Dab the result with a tissue to matt it off.

You can also paint locks of hair on the skin if you wish.
REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

Scrape the Eyebrow Plastic off the skin with the spatula. You remove the make-up with Grimas Cleansing Cream or Multi Remover Pure.

Do not use Afschmink, as this contains waxes and oils that actually cause the Cake Make-up to adhere to the skin. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

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.
