How to contour your nose to make it look smaller
Do you want to know how to contour your nose to make it look smaller? If you are embarrassed with the size of your nose and feel that it is not enhancing your facial beauty, don’t worry. There are a few non-surgical ways to make your nose smaller. Today, in this post, I am going to discuss about how to contour your nose.
What is contouring?
Countering is a make-up trick that improves the natural structure of a woman’s face. By emphasizing the upper cheek bones and the bridge of the nose, a woman can create beautiful angles for a natural but well-sculpted make-up. It makes her look very beautiful. The key to subtle contour make-up is to blend it in such a manner that it doesn’t catch anybody’s attention!
You can find many crazy contouring tutorials online. But if you don’t want to mark your face as an art object, don’t worry. You can always achieve a sculpted look with a more natural and realistic finish. One of the most difficult features to achieve this is obviously –the nose.
If you go too far, it could look like you’re trying to go around the nose, which is actually the opposite of what you want. To avoid falling into the ranks of contour victims, I asked an internationally reputed celebrity make-up artist about how to go about it. He showed me exactly how to do it.
Just scroll down to find out how to contour your nose in three simple steps.
Step 1: Choose your contouring product
Surprisingly, one of the leading make-up artists has advised against using a bronzer for contouring. The reason is that it is usually formulated with a warmer shade. Hence, it does not look like a natural shade on all skin tones. Instead, he recommends looking for something (such as an eyebrow product) with a more neutral, grayish shade. This will appear more like a natural shade than a bronzer.
Step 2: Connect the dots
Instead of drawing a line on each side of the nose, he suggests that you draw a series of points. Once you have aligned a few points on each side of the nose vertically, bring them together vertically. This tends to give a more natural shape than a hard line. Make sure that you do this on both sides of the bridge of the nose.
Third step: Contour the tip of the nose
To make the tip of the nose look more vivid and sculpted, you can add a small outline at the tip of the nose. ” Think of the contour as a shadow, not as color or a bronzer,” says the make-up artist. If you do this, you should not be able to see lines or redness of any kind.
Fourth step: Intensify the color
If a natural shade seems a little too subtle for you, you can redraw the lines you created in steps one, two and three with powder contour. Remember that you should do everything slowly. It is much easier to apply more contour than to wipe off excess product.
I am sure these small make-up tips on how to contour your nose to make it look a bit smaller have given you enough idea about how to go about doing that properly. The beauty of this method is that you won’t have to go under the knife to make your nose smaller and spend a boatload of cash to do a rhinoplasty surgery in order to enhance your facial feature.
