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.


Ageing a young face is based on a simple principle. On an older person the skin, where there is little or no bone, is sunken. On a younger person these parts are darkened (shadowed), the skin will appear to be really sunken at that spot.

For ageing we use Crème Make-up Pure because this works out easily and has good fluidic properties. For shadowing a brown colour is used.

Depending on the desired effect and the situation (nearby, far off), you can apply stronger or less strong lines.

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. The naso-labial fold is easier to locate if one grimaces. Bags under the eyes are sharp on the lower side and must be faded towards the upper side.
