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


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.

Black-and-white photographs seem timeless and bring out the distinctive features of the face through the effect of the shadows.

Dark colours (red lips) and dark lines (around the eyes and when modelling) create a harsh effect on black and white pictures. A make-up with soft colours and lines is therefore very suitable for a black and white portrait.

Hint: green is the colour that works best in terms of grey scale shades when converted into black and white. This makes green eye shadow a good choice for black and white photographs.


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. Allow 10 minutes for it to be absorbed before you continue.

In this example we are working with a base of Grimas Cake Make-up.
