No one is perfect, so it is not surprising that some people do not like the size of their noses. Not everyone can afford plastic surgery to fix what they feel is imperfect, so makeup is the next best thing. With a few tips and tricks, your nose can look smaller in a matter of minutes.
Here are 7 makeup tricks to make your nose look smaller.
1. Darker foundation
To make your nose appear smaller, you can try a foundation that is 2 shades darker than the color you normally use. You want to create a few lines between your eyebrows and the sides of your nose then blend.
Along with a darker foundation, contouring can affect the appearance of a person's nose. When contouring, you are simply blending your normal color of foundation and the darker foundation together.
3. Matt finish
Matt finish makeup works to reduce shine on your face. It is especially helpful when applied to your nose because when your nose is shiny, it looks bigger.
Using blush on areas of your face other than your nose, can draw attention to that specific area. For example, if you apply a shimmer blush to your cheeks, people will most likely pay attention to your cheeks rather than your nose.
With a bronzer that is the same color as your skin tone, you can contour your nose and help it appear smaller.
6. Loose Powder
Following the contouring, you want to apply a loose powder to seal in all the work you have done. A loose powder can also reduce the shine on your nose.
Again, you may want to use shimmer to distract from your nose. Applying a gloss or lipstick that has shine and sheen will cause people to look at your lips instead of your nose. If people aren't looking at your nose, the size of it really won't matter.
