How to Chisel Your Nose Using Makeup

December 25th, 2010  |  Published in TIPS

1 What to use: To create a nose-shrinking shadow use a foundation, bronzer, blush or eye shadow no more than one shadow darker than your natural skin color

2 Sleek surprise: To make your nose appear thinner, use the darker shade along the side of your nose leaving a vertical strip down the center of your nose. To better render the impression of a thin nose, draw a straight brighter line at the middle of the nose.

3 Short and long: To make your nose appear shorter, apply the darker shade under the nose and over the tip. For a long nose, darken the end of the nose tip.

4 Highlight it: Apply a thin line of highlighter down the center of your nose to make it look smaller.

5 Open up: For a wide nose, draw a contour with darker color shade. Darker lines should be straight at the sides, not too thick. These lines must start from the eyebrows and finish at the end of the tip.
