Graftobian Cake Foundation was created to meet the demand for a cake style water-activated face and body makeup that is intensely pigmented, yet highly adjustable for sheer to full coverage needs. This formula defines the unique qualities of cake foundation, and makeup artists and consumers alike have discovered how this timeless classic product gives “movie star” quality results. The creamy formula applies effortlessly and blends out smoothly and evenly, without streaky or chalky results. It delivers a beautifully flawless and soft matte finish over any other water-activated cake foundation on the market. It is also an excellent and superior replacement for the discontinued Max Factor Pan Cake Makeup that had been so popular for over 60 years. Paint and Powder Cosmetics has created a color comparison chart of the former Max Factor Pan Cake colors and Graftobian Cake Foundation colors.

Graftobian Cake Foundation is loved for it’s smooth and creamy water-activated formula and comes in a selection of 18 skin tone shades, 4 primary colors, and black and white. This highly pigmented foundation applies easily with a moistened sponge, such as the Cosmetic Natural Sea Sponge, or the Foam Hydra Sponge. You can achieve excellent adjustable coverage results, from a sheer wash for a hint of color to full coverage. It’s perfect to use on oily skins, and safe for sensitive skins, and especially ideal for hot/humid climate wear as it resists heat and moisture. It dries to a smooth and streak free matte finish that needs no powdering.
The Cake foundation skin tone colors match the shades in the Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Cremes, so you can mix or match your face and body colors perfectly with smooth blending and long lasting results! This low maintenance cake foundation is so versatile for face and body wear that stage and film performers prefer this brand over others for the finish it delivers that is light in texture without that “chalky” or streaky looking results. It can even be used dry as a setting or finishing powder over a creme based foundation!
For an even more durable wear/water and rub resistant finish try this: instead of using water, mix Graftobian Cake Foundation with Graftobian Magic Set Mixing and Lining Liquid. It can also be finished with any setting spray, such as Graftobian Setting Spray, to further seal and prevent transferring to clothing.

Application Instructions: Moisten a sponge of your choice mentioned above (and make sure it’s not overly wet) with water or mixing liquid. Work the sponge, using a circular motion, across the cake until a smooth and creamy consistency is achieved. Apply the color with a consistent dabbing or stippling motion, making sure to blend evenly. As with all brands of cake foundation, work quickly to perfect the finish, and even out the coverage in areas where you need, it before it dries completely. When dry, you can lightly buff the foundation to achieve a more soft and translucent, natural looking finish. Removes easily from skin simply with soap and water or makeup wipes.

PRO Tip: Do not use a foundation brush or triangular white cosmetic sponge for this type of foundation; it can leave definite streaks in your application.
