NOSE CONTOURING TIPS: LONG THIN NOSE

wrong
from Mascara.com

So this beautiful woman has a gorgeous long thin nose.

Of all of the noses this is the one that breaks the rules of nose contouring the most, so I felt like it was time I addressed it! So first I’ll demonstrate traditional nose contouring.

The purpse of those lines is to diminish the size of the nose and make it less of a focal point on the face (leaving your eyes and smile to steal the show!) The problem here is that she already has a very thin nose and by contouring it you are deepening the shadows on the side and making the nose more pronounced.

Instead I normally use the same highlighting foundation that I use under the eyes on the whole nose. It helps diminish the shadows on the side and still shows off the pretty thinness without letting it become the star. If I do any contouring at all I will do a subtle amount on the bottom of the nose.
