Not all women are unhappy with their less than perfect nose. For them, surgery is off limits. What these women want is to make their nose look thinner during a special occasion. And we can do it easily! Just follow these simple steps to transform your nose in just 5 minutes!
How To Make Nose Thinner With Makeup Tutorial:
- Bronzing powder or dark matte brown eyeshadow
- Lighter foundation or concealer
- Darker foundation
- Translucent powder
Start by applying your foundation with a flat foundation brush or a sponge. Then, apply a darker foundation with a pointed thin brush to the nose bridge to define the sides of the nose. This will create an illusion of a thinner and slimmer nose. You needn’t worry if it looks harsh as we will be smudging and blending it later. The darker foundation has to be at least 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone.
Take a small blending brush and start pulling the darker foundation applied on the sides of the nose downwards to create depth on the sides of the nose. Then, pick a lighter foundation or a concealer. Apply it to the center of your nose to highlight and create an illusion of sharper nose.
Now use a foundation brush or sponge to softly blend all the sharp edges left by the products in the earlier step. Create short strokes to blend both the darker and lighter shades. You should remember in this step not to over blend it as the created effect created might be lost.
Then, take a bronzing powder and apply it to the nose bridges. This powder has to be applied directly on top of the darker foundation. It will help add more depth and dimension to your nose. At the same time, it will also set the creamy formula of the foundation. Then, choose a light pressed or translucent powder and apply it to the center of your nose.
Now, pick a highlighting powder, which contains fine shimmer particles.Apply it to the center of your nose to further highlight and add a soft oomph to the makeup. If you do not own a highlighting powder, then you could use a soft shimmery eyeshadow or a pale blush and apply it. Now, pick a blush or kabuki brush to softly bend out everything to create a seamless finish. And you are done! Now, you have the perfect model-like thin and slim nose!
This little trick will work for you in photographs. That perfect Facebook profile picture can now be yours! You can also use this technique to give your nose a makeover before you head out to that special wedding. But remember not to leave harsh edges in the makeup as it will look funny at the end of the day!
Why spend your hard earned money on an invasive surgery that may cause more harm than good? A nose job does not guarantee a beautiful nose. Remember Shilpa Shetty and others of her ilk? If you don’t want to mess with your looks, use makeup!
