How to contour your nose

Your rating: None
Contouring your nose is a trick to give the illusion of a smaller nose.
What you'll need: 
Contour powder/cream/gel or Matte Bronzer
Small blending brush
To contour your nose, use a small blending brush, one that is usually used for the eyes as this is the perfect size to use for contouring your nose.
Analyse your nose, naturally there is a shadow from just below your eyebrow going down towards the tip of your nose.
Dip the brush in the contour powder and starting from below your eyebrow, contour the sides of your nose in straight line curving slightly outwards towards the tip of your nose.
Blend the product away from the bridge of your nose making sure there are no harsh lines.
You can also contour below the tip of your nose to make it appear smaller, apply the product in an upside down c shape and blend outwards.
Always use a contour powder a couple of shades darker
Use a matte powder, a shimmer powder will make the look look unnatural.
