How to Make Your Nose Look Smaller

If you’re looking for a picture-perfect nose, hold off on that plastic surgeon, and dig into your makeup bag for some tricks.

Instructions

  • Step 1: Dab foundation on nose Use a foundation one shade darker than your natural skin color and dab it on either side of your nose. Blend a lighter foundation on the bridge to downplay a wide nose. The darker foundation creates a shadowed effect on the sides of your nose to make it appear thinner.
  • Step 2: Blend a lighter foundation on the bridge to downplay a wide nose. The darker foundation creates a shadow effect on the sides of your nose to make it appear thinner.
  • TIP: Instead of foundation, use taupe or brown eye shadow to create the same effect.
  • Step 3: Apply bronzer on bridge Apply bronzer along the bridge of your nose to minimize any bumps or hooks.
  • Step 4: Blend in concealer Blend concealer at and just below the tip to make your nose appear smaller and slightly turned up.
  • TIP: For men, a brushed-back hairstyle is a great way for them to downplay their nose.
  • Step 5: Put makeup on eyes and lips Play up your eyes and mouth with mascara and lipstick to draw attention away from your nose.
  • Step 6: Apply powder Finish your look with pressed powder to minimize shine, which can draw attention to the nose.
  • FACT: Did you know? World War I soldiers with face injuries received rhinoplasty, or nose jobs. After the war, doctors who worked on these soldiers formed plastic surgery societies to further the field.
