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. Protect your models clothing with a hairdressing cape or a towel.

APPLYING A BASE

Apply the make-up on clean skin, after the usual daily care (day cream or Grimas Under Make-up Base).

You start by applying a base. Here you can choose from Grimas Cake Make-up, Foundation, Camouflage Make-up Pure, Crème Make-up Pure and Compact Powder. Every single one of the basic make-ups is excellently suited for any skin type.

Conceal the red cheeks with a thin layer of Camouflage Make-up Pure in the model's own skin colour.

CAKE MAKE-UP = Cake Make-up
FOUNDATION = Foundation
CAMOUFLAGE MAKE-UP PURE = Camouflage Make-up Pure
CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure
COMPACT POWDER = Compact Powder
Take the Camouflage Make-up out with a clean spatula. Rubbing it with your fingertip will make it softer and easier to handle. If desired, you can make the texture softer and affect the colour by blending the Camouflage make-up with Crème Make-up or Foundation, for instance.

Apply the make-up using a slightly moist sponge.

CAMOUFLAGE MAKE-UP PURE = Camouflage Make-up Pure
CRÈME MAKE-UP PURE = Crème Make-up Pure
FOUNDATION = Foundation
Work the camouflage make-up around well.

If necessary, you then apply a thin base to the entire face in the subject's own skin colour. To determine the proper colour, you can mix it on a plastic spatula and test it on the skin (for example at the throat), if necessary.

Fix the make-up with plenty of Fixing Powder.
Fixing Powder is transparent and does not influence the colour. Fixing Powder can be applied with a Grimas Velour Powder Puff, a Powder Puff or a Powder Rouge Brush. Gently tap the puff or brush on the back of the hand and then apply plentifully on top of the make-up.
Allow to settle in for a waterproof result and remove the excess powder with a Powder-Rouge Brush.

EYEBROWS

You touch up the eyebrow using Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge in a suitable colour. Use a brush to take out Eye Shadow/Rouge in the desired colour and determine the colour intensity on the hand before you apply the powder. You comb the eyebrow hair (for example with a clean, dry mascara roller or eyebrow comb) in a downward direction and fill in the upper edge. Use an MS2 or MS4 brush for this (with obliquely cut hairs)
Hint: you can also use a brush (for instance R4 or M4) of which you yourself have cut the hairs diagonally.

Work from the centre to the outer areas and do not begin right where it starts.
Then you push the hairs upwards and fill in the eyebrow a little from the bottom.

Use the brush to apply a thin layer of Eyebrow Fixer to the eyebrows. Use the brush to fix the hairs in the right direction. You can repeat the process several times, each time only using a little of the product.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
EYEBROW FIXER = Eyebrow Fixer
EYES

For overhanging eyelids you use a darker colour to accentuate the overhanging part of the eyelid where it meets the brow bone.
Hint: use for older skin preferably eye shadow colours in pastel shades for older skin. Pearl Eye Shadow is less suitable for older skin because of the strong shine.

Apply the mascara from where the eyelashes begin right to the ends of the upper and lower eyelashes with a rotating movement. If necessary, brush off with a clean, dry mascara brush afterwards to remove any lumps.
Hint: preferably avoid black mascara, as that colour contrasts too sharply with older skin. A brown colour creates a more natural effect.

EYESHADOW/ROUGE = Eyeshadow/Rouge
LIPS

To prevent Lipstick (Pure) from running into any creases around the mouth, you can apply a thin layer of Grimas Camouflage Make-up Pure to the lips beforehand. Mix Grimas Lipstick (Pure) and Gloss on a clean spatula and then apply with the brush.

LIPSTICK (PURE) = Lipstick (Pure)
CAMOUFLAGE MAKE-UP PURE = Camouflage Make-up Pure
GLOSS (PURE) = Gloss
MODELLING

Using rouge you can highlight the 'sunken' part of the skin a bit more.
Work on a dry base, so on skin that has been powdered off. Use the Powder-Rouge Brush to take out Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge in the desired colour. Put the powder brush vertically and tap with the hand to disperse the powder in the hairs so the powder does not just end up on the tips of the hairs. Smooth the colour out with the flat side of the brush, so do not dab it on.

For a natural effect, you can apply the rouge to the cheekbones, the temples and under the eyebrows, and light touches to the neck.

REMOVING THE PRODUCTS

You can remove the make-up with Grimas Cleansing Cream or Cleansing Milk. Cleanse the skin afterwards with cleansing lotion.

CLEANSING CREAM / SKINCARE CREAM = Cleansing Cream
CLEANSING MILK = Cleansing Milk
CLEANSING LOTION = Cleansing Lotion
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 also wash the (Velour) Powder Puff in the washing machine.

You can clean brushes with water and soap or shampoo. The Powder and Blusher Brush is cleaned like this too. 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.
