If your nose is making you feel more like Cyrano De Bergerac than Charlize Theron, this little contouring trick is going to change your life—no scalpel necessary! Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to tweak your beak!
Step 1: Apply makeup as usual.
Step 2: Using a crease brush like Smashbox #10 and a matte bronzer (try Lancôme Star Bronzer in Matte), brush the bronzer from the inner corner of the eyebrow to the end of your nose.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 on the other side of your nose.
Step 4: Apply bronzer to the tip of your nose. This step actually creates the illusion that your nose is shorter.
Step 5: Using a blender brush such as MAC 224, gently blend out any harsh edges along the sides of your nose.
Step 6: Repeat step 5 on the other side of your nose.
Step 7: Blend out the tip of your nose until no edge is visible.
Step 8: Using your finger and a highlighter (try Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder), softly blend a small amount on the upper bridge of your nose. Be careful not to extend it to far down the nose.
Step 9: Go get your close-up on!
