Grimas Water Make-up (Pure)* is an unperfumed, gluten-free water-based make-up without chemical preservatives. It is intended for face-painting and body-painting. Water Make-up (Pure) is available in palettes of 6, 12 or 24 x 2.5ml cups. The colours are also available separately in boxes of 15, 25 and 60ml. 
* Pure This means that the product in question does not contain any chemical preservatives (such as parabens) or halogenated organic compounds. The ‘Pure' products, like all Grimas products, are gluten-free and unperfumed.


There is a range of matt Water Make-up (Pure) colours plus various Pearl shades. The colours can all be mixed.


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 to be applied more evenly and more vividly and also that they are easier to remove later. Cake Make-up dries quickly and should not be mixed with Water Make-up (Pure).


Water Make-up (Pure) works basically the same way as watercolour paints. Use a brush or a make-up sponge (for larger areas of skin) and a little water to make the surface of the colour soft and pasty. Do not use it when too dry, but do not use too much water. The Pearl shades such as silver and gold are slightly more grainy in texture and need slightly more 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 continuing. If you apply the make-up too thickly or in too many layers, you will end up with a cracking effect.

Regularly change the water you rinse your brushes in, preferably working 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).


Water Make-up (Pure) can be removed with Grimas Cleansing Cream or with soap and water (shampoo can also be used). Massage it in briefly and rinse off with lukewarm water. Do not use Afschmink, as this contains waxes and oils which actually adhere the Water Make-up to the skin. If a trace of colour is left on the skin, it can be removed with Grimas Cleansing Lotion. If Water Make-up (Pure) gets onto clothing, wash it out first under the tap and then soak with a pre-wash detergent. Then wash as normal in the washing machine.
