This gal is an artist and she paints people. While painting, it occurred to her that the same type of shading could be used on her face…specifically her nose!
Makeup can make or break your beauty and I’m not kidding at all. Contouring your face is little trick that can help you achieve the perfect face shape, but many girls want to learn how to contour your nose to bring the best out. There are many techniques used during the nose contouring makeup which makes it a very interesting process to learn.
They say that our nose and ears grow as we age, and I really believe this is true because when I see photos of myself, I don’t remember my nose looking as big as it does in pictures. Yikes! It’s just a good thing that I’ve learned this little trick. It makes me feel a lot better and the way we feel about ourselves is most important!
There are many products that can be used to contour your nose. Matte bronzer, brow brush, an eyeshadow brush, sculpting powder will do it. Choose the color of all the products 1 or 2 shade darker than your normal skin.
Apply your foundation first. Then draw two straight lines on the sides of the nose. Use an angled brush to draw these contour lines. Start from the brow bone and go till the end of the nose. Keep the lines little light first.
Use the highlighter to bridge your nose. Highlighter should be 1-2 shade lighter than your normal skin tone. Apply a thin line from top of your nose to the end. It helps in emphasizing on the bridge of the nose so make sure it’s thinner.
If the tip of your nose is thick or wide, only apply highlighter to the halfway. You can use off white or a nude shade for eyeshadow or specific highlighters to contour your nose.
Blend the lines using a makeup spouse of fluffy blender brush both to highlight or contour lines. Make sure you don’t end up cleaning both the lines on the sides together. You need to make them look distinct and subtle.
