Want a thinner nose, but not ready for the commitment of rhinoplasty? Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic says its possible to thin your nose with makeup. “Accentuating the bridge of the nose attracts light and shading, or darkening, the sides de-emphasizes, which results in a thinner nose. Wherever you place dark, it will recede and where you place light, it will highlight.” It’s amazing what a little makeup, a good blending brush, and a skilled hand can do.
What you’ll need
Either pressed powder or bronzer, highlighter and a lighter shade of powder foundation. Try BareMinerals Matte SPF15 Foundation ($28) which leaves skin shine-free and buffs seamlessly into the skin.
Step 1: Apply a darker shade of makeup down both sides of the nose, starting at the top going all the way down to the tip, blending up into the inner portion of the eyebrows.
Step 2: Use a lighter color down the bridge of your nose.
Step 3: Swipe highlighter down the center of the bridge.
