fixing the nose

I was wondering if anyone knew the technique of how to make your nose look thinner?

ummm I'm no expert but i would say to apply a darker makeup around the sides of the nose to make it darker, (shadows and highlights) I'm just not sure what to use :\ sorry, but if anyone else might know i hope I'm on the right track

It's called contouring. You use a slightly darker-than-normal foundation or powder on the side of the nose, and a slightly lighter-than-normal one down the center of the nose to create the illusion that it's longer and thinner.

another way is to alter your eyebrows slightly. (never tried but saw this video on it and you might want to try it out s )

It basically says that you elongate your eyebrows towards your nose. anyway watch the video and hope it helps!

Guys, this thread is from five years ago. We don't need to necro it.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.
