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.


With a dry or sensitive skin, you can apply Grimas Under Make-up Base. Allow 10 minutes for it to be absorbed before you continue.

You start by applying a base. In this example we are working with a base of Grimas Foundation.
In the case of combination skin, you could apply some Grimas Anti Shine to the greasy parts of the skin (nose, chin) before applying the make-up.
Grimas Anti Shine is an excellent means of providing the skin with a matt finish and is suitable for various make-up applications. It is an ideal product for preventing a shiny effect and it improves the endurance of the make-up. Apply Anti Shine in a very thin layer with the finger or a latex sponge.

In this example we are working with a base of Grimas Foundation.
For a day make-up the main aim of the base is to give the skin an even appearance.

Squeeze a little foundation out of the tube onto a clean spatula. 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.

If you want a more transparent but still mat result, you can mix the Foundation on the spatula with Under Make-up Base.

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.

Any remaining undesirable features (pimples, unevenness) can be concealed with Grimas Correction Stick Pure.
IV5 has a yellowish undertone and neutralises blue-grey shadows (rings, signs of tiredness), while soft green 408 neutralises red (red patches, pimples, red blood vessels). Correction Stick Pure can be applied directly to the skin.
