Foundation Tricks to Make Nose Look Ideal

Foundation does not only make your skin look smooth and flawless, hiding skin imperfections, but can also be applied to make your nose look ideal. To achieve the result, you should choose a foundation that is a shade darker than your facial skin tone is. Do not apply this foundation as a base for your entire face. This is to be used for the nose area only. Apply it to each side of your nose and even beneath the nose in case you have a wide nose. Blending the dark foundation with your natural skin tone, your nose can appear smaller.

The rest of the makeup plays a dominant role in the case when you want to draw attention from your nose. It is highly recommended to have defined eyes or cheekbones that will draw the attention away from your nose and your other features that look so charming will gain power.

However, if you do not want to risk better learn the ideal tips to reshape your nose.

To achieve best results have a foundation that is one or two shades darker than your skin tone. This will act as a shadow, as well as another foundation that is two or three shades lighter than your skin tone. This will act as a highlighter. Once you have these foundations start the procedure.

Flat Nose: Use some highlight on the center of the nose, making sure you leave the sides intact. Blend it well.

Broad Nose: Since a broad nose covers much space on our face it makes things difficult a little bit. However, a broad nose can be made slimmer with a foundation that is a shade darker than your natural skin tone is. Using a small, firm brush, apply it on the sides of the nose, blending well. You have to apply the foundation starting right below the inner corners of your brows and making your way through the nostril sides. Now, take a lighter shade of foundation and apply it on the bridge of the nose.

Narrow Nose: Choose a concealer that is a little darker than your natural skin tone and apply it on the center of your nose. As for the sides of your nose and the nostrils, they should be covered with a lighter foundation tone.

Long Nose: Take a foundation a few shades darker than your natural skin tone and cover the nose tip with it, right between and around the nostrils. Next, give a slight highlight on the upper part of the nose.

Short Nose: If you have a short nose and dream to make it appear longer, highlight over and under the tip of your nose with a foundation.

Crooked Nose: Apply a straight highlight down the bridge of your nose and shadow the sides. If there is a bend you can feel free to highlight the area opposite the bend as well.

Use these techniques and you will get a natural looking nose that will go well with the rest of your features. And once forever forget about any surgery, it is pointless when you can fix the problem yourself easily.
