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.

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 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.

APPLYING A BASE

Grimas Cake Make-up is a basic make-up that is easy to apply. 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.

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.
Draw the moustache and the eyebrows using black Water Make-up. Take it out using a thin brush.
The broad shape of the eyebrows and the small angle they make enhance the mean effect.

Apply a beard shadow with Eye Shadow/Rouge using a Powder-Rouge Brush.

SHADOWING/LINING

This example makes use of the principle of 'aging'. Important areas for shading are the eye sockets, the temples, the side of the nose and below the cheekbones. The vertical frown wrinkle and the naso-labial ('nose-lip') fold are also important areas to shadow.

Cake Make-up can be lighted and shadowed beautifully with Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
The parts of the face that have not been shaded now seem to have been brought forward. If the non-shaded parts are lightened, this will enhance the effect of bringing those areas "forward".

Apply white make-up to the higher parts of the forehead, above the temple, next to the frown wrinkles on the wings of the nose and on top of the nose. The eyebag is also lightened a little. Between the higher parts of the brow some subtle shadowing is done to generate more depth. Now you lighten the cheekbones and the outsides of the naso-labial fold, the higher part above the upper lip, the corners of the mouth and on the chin.

Please note: there is a tendency to draw in all the lines (wrinkles, crow's feet) when doing the make-up. When used for large distances (theatre, opera) it is advisable not to do this. These smaller lines will not be noticed, even from a short distance away and will appear dark smudges from a larger distance.

Depending on the desired effect and the situation (nearby, far off), you can apply stronger or less strong lines.

General tip: Water Make-up can be used to add (additional) colour to the hair and eyebrows, provided that the hair is not permed, bleached or dyed. Use a toothbrush to do this.

Hair that has been coloured using Water Make-up (Pure) can be washed with shampoo.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

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.
Do not use ready-to-use cleansing cloths.

Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

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. The Powder and Blusher Brush is cleaned like this too.
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.
