Now that you have a white base over the nose, now we're going to start the contour and add the actual shape of the black cat nose. We're gonna go in with a rounded brush, something very similar to this. Add a little bit of water to it, and then go in with a black cake makeup. First we will start with the shape. I want to start it with a rounded curve and then continue it back over the nostrils. And extend it a little bit further out. Want to go with the natural shape of the person's nose. Once you have the shape done, now we're going to start to contour the sides. Take a flat wide eye shadow brush and then go in with a dark gray shadow. Just flick off any excess powder. Close your eyes. Right where that line is where the light meets the gray, just going to contour. It's going to create a more kinda box-like shape to give you that kind of feline nose. I'm gonna blend it slightly over. Awesome. Now you have your cat nose.
