Take the Crème Make-up Pure out with a clean spatula and work from the spatula. Apply it with a slightly damp latex sponge or make-up sponge onto the skin. Work the base out properly, up into the hairline, and do not forget the ears and neck. This is how you avoid a mask-like effect.

CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure

The powerful features are applied to the face by strongly shadowing. In this example dark grey was used for the shading.

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. You draw the lines with a flat sable-hair brush. By placing it obliquely on the skin you get a sharp edge on one side and a fading effect on the other side. To determine which side should be sharp and which side faded, you start from the centre of the face (nose). Create a fading effect towards the outside. The lines from the eyes towards the forehead (vertical frowning wrinkles) and the naso-labial ('nose-lip') fold are therefore sharp in the direction of the nose and more blurred towards the outside. Bags under the eyes are sharp on the lower side and must be faded towards the upper side.


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.

To fix and matt it, you can powder the Crème Make-up Pure off with Grimas Fixing Powder, Transparent Powder or Make-up Powder.

Draw with Water Make-up a line along the eye and colour the eyebrows.

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