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.

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

For a Sinterklaas you use a ready-to-wear beard set. To conceal the edges of this beard set and to create the eyebrows you use pieces of Wool Crepe. You make this beforehand.

Hang on the beard round the face and draw the line where it will be glued later on with Make-up Pencil 004. Do not apply make-up below this line to improve sticking power and prevent the beard becoming dirty. You also keep the area where the moustache is going to be stuck on free of make-up.

Apply a base with Grimas Crème Make-up Pure 1002. 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. By applying the base on the lips they appear narrower - a trait of ageing.
