Set out ready for use:

Do not use ready-to-use cleansing cloths.


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.

Ageing a young face is based on a simple principle. Always go along with the features of to the person you are ageing. A pinched face with a clear bone structure demands another approach than a spherical, round face. When ageing a face, we use Crème Make-up Pure or Covercream Pure, because they can be applied easily and blend beautifully.

When you are experienced in ageing you can also choose to apply a base of Cake Make-up and shade and lighten with Eyeshadow/Rouge on this.


Apply a base with Grimas Crème Make-up Pure. The older skin has a pale colour because of the diminished blood supply. By applying a light, dull base tint (for example OA or 1007) you directly get an older effect. Work out the base on the ears and in the neck.
