The nose is probably the ugliest part on every human face. Why is it even there? Well, now that it is there we have to deal with it the best way we can. You canít do as much with your nose as with other parts of your face (unless youíre considering surgery).
Most of us want a smaller nose so first of all, you should follow the tips I gave you in the Skin beauty tips section on how to apply foundation and extra powder to the nose. If you have a big nose you can also try to make it less noticeable by adding fullness to your hair and try some high hair styles. Avoid long straight hair.
Make sure all the powder, foundation and concealer you're using on your nose are matt. Shiny make-up will make it look bigger and will also draw more attention to it.
Use a powder, sun powder, blush or even eye shadow (whatever comes closest color-wise) - it should be just a little darker than your skin, maybe two or three shades darker than powder you would normally use, not too noticeable - and apply it to the sides of the nose. This will make your nose look thinner. To make your nose look even smaller, apply a color a few shades lighter than your skin along the tip of your nose.
Smaller nose on photos
This probably sounds really weird but Iím going to tell you anyway. I have a pretty long snub nose and sometimes at photo sessions I tense my nose a little which makes it go downwards and become smaller. Try it yourself right now! Did you notice how the whole position of the nose changed? Of course, I canít be sure, but I think some celebrities use this trick from time to time too...
