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.

CHOICE OF MAKE-UP BASE

Here you can choose from Grimas Cake Make-up, Foundation, Camouflage Make-up Pure, Crème Make-up Pure and Compact Powder. Every single one of the basic make-ups is excellently suited for any skin type.

An additional rule is that powder-based make-up (Cake Make-up and Compact Powder) is very suitable for greasy skin and that dry skin benefits from cream-based make-up.
With Cake Make-up (covering) and Compact Powder(transparent) you can achieve a matt finish without having to powder off extra.
Crème Make-up is ideal for normal and dry skin and can if desired be applied either transparently or as a cover, ensuring a nice, natural skin sheen.

FOUNDATION = Foundation
CAMOUFLAGE MAKE-UP PURE = Camouflage Make-up Pure
CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure
COMPACT POWDER = Compact Powder
The choice for a certain base depends - aside from the personal preference of a visagist and perhaps the skin type - primarily on the purpose of the make-up.

If the make-up has to keep for an extremely long period (bridal make-up, fashion show) or has to be heat-proof (tropical conditions, bright lights) and waterproof, then Camouflage Make-up is an ideal basis. Camouflage Make-up is used in combination with other basic make-up to hide rings and bags under the eyes, or pimples and spots.

For a very natural effect (young girl, older woman) and for combination skin (greasy areas) Foundation is a nice product with which one can easily work transparent. In this example we are working with a base of Grimas Foundation.

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

With a dry or sensitive skin, you can apply Grimas Under Make-up Base.
Grimas Under Make-up Base is an unperfumed and non-greasy cream, with a caring effect. It is mainly applied underneath make-up in case of dry or sensitive skin, but can also be used as a regular day cream. Take the Under Make-up out of the jar with a plastic spatula and apply the emulsion evenly onto a clean skin. Allow 10 minutes for it to be absorbed before you continue. Close the jar properly after use.

In this example we are working with a base of Grimas Foundation. To determine the proper colour, you can mix it on a plastic spatula and test it on the skin (for example at the throat), if necessary. The optimum colour approaches as much as possible the colour of the own skin.
FOUNDATION = Foundation
Squeeze a little foundation out of the tube onto a clean spatula. If you want a more transparent but still mat result, you can mix the Foundation on the spatula with Under Make-up Base.
FOUNDATION = Foundation

APPLYING A BASE

Work from the spatula using a clean, dry latex sponge or a slightly moist make-up sponge, applying the foundation to the skin in a thin layer. 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.

Hint: if you intend to apply eye shadow after the base, do not apply Foundation to the eyelids.
Do apply Foundation to the lips.

FIXING THE MAKE-UP

To fix and mattify, you can powder the Foundation off with Grimas Fixing Powder or Make-up Powder. If you want to affect the colour more, you can use Grimas Compact Powder or Colour Powder. Make-up Powder can be applied with a Grimas Velour Powder Puff, a Powder Puff or a Powder Rouge Brush.
You take with a clean Powder Puff loose powder from the box, dab the excess powder off on the hand and then apply the powder to the make-up with a light, dabbing motion.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

You can remove the make-up with Grimas Cleansing Cream or Cleansing Milk. Cleanse the skin afterwards with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

CLEARING UP THE MATERIALS

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 also wash the (Velour) Powder Puff in the washing machine.

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.
