Protect clothing first before starting the make-up. To clean and remove any grease from the skin you may use Cleansing Lotion. This will give an even finish and the make-up can be applied more easily. If the skin is dry it is wise to apply Undermake-up base very thinly with a make-up sponge after using the Cleansing Lotion. Use a spatula to take it from the container and apply it very thinly onto the skin. Allow 10 minutes for the cream to be absorbed. After this Cake Make-up may be applied.Cake Make-up serves as a base for Water Make-up. It is simple to apply and makes it easy to apply Water Make-up. To apply the Cake Make-up use the round surface of a moist Make-up Sponge squeezed between the fingertips. Check the colour strength of the Cake Make-up on the hand first and then apply it evenly. Cake Make-up dries quickly and does not require powdering.Water Make-up is suitable for face- and bodypainting. Water Make-up dries quickly and is not easily rubbed off.
Apply Water Make-up with a damp make-up sponge or brush. Work the Water Make-up into a creamy paste with water when applying it with a brush. Sable-Ox- and artificial hair brushes are suitable to apply Water Make-up.Hair can be coloured with Water Make-up, however never on henna-coloured bleached or porous hair.Take care not to leave moistened make-up sponges on the Make-up. Do not close the make-up directly after use but allow to dry. Dry the surface of the Make-up by dabbing with a tissue. It is essential that it is stored in a cool and dry environment and cleaned well after use. The Make-up can be removed with water and soap, shampoo or Cleansing cream. Any remaining traces of colour may be removed with Cleansing Lotion. Remove Water Make-up from clothing first by hand with soap or prewashing powder. After that wash in the washing machine.
