PUT READY

Set out ready for use:
Towel / cape
Mirror
Water bowls
Tissues
Cotton buds
Cotton wool pads

Do not use ready-to-use cleansing cloths.

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. This stops the make-up running and the clothes becoming dirty.
Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

Hint: children like to be able to watch their face being painted in the mirror. This will generally ensure they are less easily distracted and are more likely to sit still.

APPLYING A BASE

When you work with Cake Make-up, it is important you apply it to clean, non-greasy skin. This will allow the make-up to stick to the skin better and to keep its effect longer. Degrease the skin by cleaning it with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

If the skin is dry or sensitive, than apply a thin layer of Grimas Under Make-up Base: a non-greasy cream with a caring effect. Let the skin absorb it for a few minutes before you start working on the skin with Cake or Water Make-up, thus ensuring that the product has been fully absorbed into the skin.

Attention: do not apply make-up directly after shaving.
When the skin is shaved, it is damaged, making the skin easy to dry out and become irritated. The irritation can get worse when subsequently an aftershave product containing alcohol is used. The irritated skin can react sensitively to the make-up. You can prevent this by leaving several hours between the shaving and the application of make-up. You can apply a skincare cream like Under Make-up Base directly after shaving.

It is important to follow the instructions for removing the make-up, particularly if the make-up is being used several days in a row.

Start applying the Lipstick.
Take the Lipstick (Pure) onto a spatula (even if you are working from a stick) and apply it with a lip brush. First colour the middle of the lips and then colour the edges, working from the outside inwards.

CAKE MAKE-UP

You can choose between two Cake Make-up Zwarte Piet colours: 1001 black-brown and N3 warm, dark brown. N3 is, because it is slightly lighter and contains more red, very well suited to use in photos and film. The colour can also be applied if you want to obtain a less dark (more friendly) effect. You can if you wish also make a Zwarte Piet with black/brown Water Make-up (N1).

Take out the Cake Make-up with a damp brush. Do this at the edge of the box to prevent the make-up from becoming crumbly when the sponge is used.

PROCEDURE

Apply the makeup under the eyes first. Get the subject to look up so that the make-up can be applied properly. Let the subject close their eyes now and apply the make-up on and above the upper eyelid.

Children are inclined to shut their eyes tight. Then you can say: keep your eyes closed as if you are sleeping.

Get the subject to close their eyes until the make-up around the eyes has dried. Work in the same way around the nose and the lips. The rest of the face you colour using a slightly moistened sponge.

Take the make-up sponge between the fingertips and squeeze it together to create a round surface. With this surface the make-up can be applied. First dab a little Cake Make-up onto the hand to check the colour intensity. Then apply it evenly from top to bottom.

Work the Cake Make-up out properly, up into the hairline, and do not forget the ears and neck. This is how you avoid a mask-like effect.

Cake Make-up dries quickly, so you need to work quickly to achieve a nice result. If the result is not even, turn the sponge that you worked with over and use the clean side to even out the make-up.

Any stripes after drying can be gently rubbed away with a soft tissue or cloth.

Hint: If Cake Make-up gets stuck to the Lipstick, you can remove it using a cotton bud and some Cleansing Lotion. Then repair the Lipstick.

If the make-up becomes wet in rainy weather, do not rub! After drying out the make-up will look normal again.

To get a waterproof Zwarte Piet you can dab a layer of Crème Make-up on top of the Cake Make-up. Powder off with Fixing Powder.

Colour the eyebrows with black Water Make-up (Pure) to add perspective.

A moustache can be coloured with this as well.

Camouflage Make-up Pure or Crème Make-up Pure

Use Camouflage Make-up Pure or Crème Make-up Pure instead of Cake Make-up for very extreme circumstances. Applying this does require considerably more attention and time. Camouflage Make-up Pure and Crème Make-up Pure are available in dark brown (1001) and black (101) for blacking up as Zwarte Piet.
Use a clean spatula to take out the make-up and stir it gently with a finger. Apply it with a slightly damp latex sponge or make-up sponge onto the skin. To fix it, you use a generous amount of Grimas Fixing Powder. Allow 10 minutes for it to be absorbed and then remove the excess powder with a Powder-Rouge brush.

Use Multi Remover Pure to remove Camouflage Make-up and Crème Make-up.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

You can lightly wash the skin with lukewarm water and soap (or shampoo) to already remove a great part. Massage it in briefly and rinse off with lukewarm water. Scrubbing too much with water and soap or shampoo can irritate the skin.
Then you continue cleaning with Cleansing Cream or Cleansing Milk by massaging it in and removing it with a soft tissue.
If a trace of colour is left on the skin, it can be removed with Grimas Cleansing Lotion.

Do not use Afschmink, as this consists of waxes and oils that actually let the Cake Make-up stick to the skin.
Do not use ready-to-use cleansing cloths. If the skin feels dry after cleaning, you can apply a care cream. Grimas Skincare Cream is an unperfumed cream with a caring effect.

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 clean brushes with water and soap or shampoo. 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.
