Water Make-up (Pure) can be applied directly onto the skin, but you can also first apply a layer of Grimas Cake Make-up. This has the benefit of allowing the colours of Water Make-up (Pure) to be applied more evenly and more vividly and also that they are easier to remove later. Cake Make-up dries quickly and does not mix with the Water Make-up (Pure).
When you work with Water Make-up Pure, it is important to apply it to a clean, non-greasy skin. This will allow the make-up to stick to the skin better and to keep its effect longer. Water Make-up works just like watercolour paint.
Use a brush or a make-up sponge and a little water to make the surface of the colour soft and pasty. Don't work too dry, but do not use too much water. Water Make-up (Pure) dries within 15 seconds.
If you do not want the colours to mix, be sure to wait for the first layer to dry before applying another colour over it or up against it. Regularly change the water you rinse your brushes in and work preferably with two water dishes: one for light and one for dark shades.
Water Make-up (Pure) can also be applied to hair, as long as it has not been treated (perm, dye, bleach, henna). Use a toothbrush to do this.
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. You can clean the skin further if required with a cleansing milk or cleansing cream. Massage it in gently and remove it with a soft tissue.
DO NOT use Afschmink (a Grimas product), as this contains waxes and oils which actually adhere the Water Make-up to the skin.
DO NOT use ready-to-use cleansing cloths.
If a trace of colour is left on the skin, it can be removed with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. If the skin feels dry after cleaning, you can apply a care cream.
Hair that has been coloured using Water Make-up (Pure) can be washed with shampoo.
Removal From Clothing
If Water Make-up gets onto clothing, rinse it out under a tap. Leave the item of clothing to soak in water containing a pre-wash (Biotex). Then wash it by hand or put it in the washing machine.
Clearing Up the Materials
If necessary, rinse the Water Make-up clean and wipe the surfaces of the colours dry with clean tissues. Let the make-up dry out in the air and only put the lid back on when the Water Make-up is dry. Store it in a dry and cool place until the next time you use it.
