Set out ready for use:
Towel / cape
Water bowls
Cotton wool pads

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. With this you avoid damaging the skin and avoids the risk of infections.

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

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 wipe dry with a tissue.

Apply very lightly a base on top of the hands and on the sides of the fingers. Use Cake Make-up for this purpose, because this stains less.

CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
CAKE MAKE-UP = 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.

MAKE-UP SPONGE = Make-up Sponge
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.

Apply very lightly a base on top of the hands and on the sides of the fingers.

You shadow with a dark colour Eyeshadow/Rouge (for example 566) the sides of the fingers; stay away from the knuckles.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
Continue shadowing in the direction of the wrist.

Lighten the top of the fingers and the knuckles with a light colour Eyeshadow/Rouge (for example 001). Continue lightening between the dark lines in the direction of the wrist. The shading and lightening must blend into the basic colour in a natural way. The more subtle you work, the more natural the result.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge

You remove the Cake Make-up with Grimas Cleansing Cream or Cleansing Milk.

You can lightly wash the skin with lukewarm water and soap (or shampoo) to already remove a great part. Scrubbing too much with water and soap or shampoo can irritate the skin. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

Do not use Afschmink, as this consists of waxes and oils that actually let the Cake Make-up stick to the skin.

Store the make-up 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.
