if you don’t love your nose try this contouring
technique before you make a appointment at your plastic surgeons office grab your cream
bronzer this is sonya casics cream bronzer and its just awesome ill using a flat synthetic
brush and im starting at the inside end of my eyebrow. You’re going to start to go down
the slope of the bridge of your nose. And as you can see, I have a bump on this side
of my nose, so I’m kind of working around it. You have to ignore that it’s there and
just be as straight as you can, following the natural curvature of your nose. You’re
going to bring these shadow lines in a lot further than where your natural shadow lie.
I am building and not trying to do this in one swoop. Once you get to the end of your
nose you’re going to take your lines underneath the edge of your nose and kind of connect
them in a diamond shape. If you feel like your nose is too long you can actually add.
Some more shadow on the very bottom part to make this area seem visually shorter. Now
we’re ready to blend out the lines we’ve laid down. So I’m using a synthetic eye shadow
brush. This is from Real Techniques. And this is going to just soften our lines, make them
not so obvious. And that’s going to give this the most natural appearance. Now that we’ve
contoured, or laid down the shadow areas, we are ready to highlight. I’m using a concealer
that’s lighter than my skin tone. This is by Nars, and I’m drawing a little fan shape
between my eyebrows, taking it very thinly down the bridge of. My nose, and then doing
a little pop on the end. This is going to give your nose a little bit more of a cute,
upturned appearance. You also wanna highlight right under the eyes in a fan shape, placing
a highlight on either side of your shadow you’ve created is going to make that appear
even more. three dimensional, and of course you want to blend everything out seamlessly
so we don’t see where one color ends and the next one begins. For a little extra highlight.
Lighting. I like to take a liquid luminisor this is Stila’s kitten and place it over those
highlight areas just to catch the light even more. Hopefully my nose is looking a little
thinner. A little straighter. Just a little more three dimensional in general. And I didn’t
even have to visit a doctor’s office.
