Face perfection is difficult to achieve, but fortunately there are so many products that can save you, so any imperfection has a simple and quick solution. Located in the center of the face, the nose draws attention and pose serious problems to every woman who strives for the perfect look. If you have been endowed with a small nose, you can consider yourself lucky, because you don’t have to resort to various tricks to make it look smaller. Conversely, if you are not satisfied with your nose and want to create the illusion of a smaller nose, you might want to try the following tricks of makeup.
- Leave a shorter distance between eyebrows
When you want to leave the impression of a smaller nose, you have to do an analysis of your face. Specifically, you need to look at the shape of the eyebrows. Because they are located over the nose and forming a T with it, brows size influences how the nose appears. How? Very simple, the distance that exists between them. If you have close eyebrows, the nose will appear automatically narrower. If you use to leave a large distance between the eyebrows, the nose will appear bigger, wider.
- Shape the nose with a darker shade
Outlining the nose is the simplest method by which you can give a new form to this area of the face. You need a narrow brush with medium or short bristles, a blending brush and a powder with one to two shades darker than the natural color of the skin.
If you do not have such a powder, use a neutral eye shadow, brown, neither too dark nor too light. You can use as well a foundation with a creamy texture or a creamy concealer. It is not advisable to use a liquid one, as it will stretch too much and will not provide the definition that you need.
Leave the area in the middle of the nose and brush with short hairs and meals outlines vertical outer edges of the nose, where normally fall umbrellas.
If your nose is narrow at the top and wide at the nostrils, avoid to outline it in the most narrow area, but concentrate a greater amount of product in the wider area.
If your nose is too long and want to make it look shorter, outline the nose lobe shape (the area above the nostrils which gives the shape of your nose).
It is better to use a V-shaped contour. If you have a very sharp nose lobe, the outline must be applied horizontally to create a shadow that shortens the nose shape.
- Soften the contour lines
The secret to a perfect shape and a smaller nose sits in a very simple trick: blurring the defined lines. Nobody needs to know that you shaped your nose, so it is good to get rid of all the harsh lines of contour. Take the brush for blending and pass it several times over the contours made earlier, until you get a natural finish and a natural shade.
- Illuminate the center of the nose
To end the tricks of lowering the nose by makeup must use a highlighter. It may be a shade lighter than the natural color of the skin. With a narrow brush, apply illuminator on the center line of the nose, between the two lines outlined above. Get back brush blending and blurring the illuminator, so you get the perfect nose: narrower and shorter.
- Use a lipstick in a stronger shade
To divert attention from the nose, color your lips with a stronger lipstick. Also, avoid to outline too much your lower eye lids, as they will draw attention to the nose.
