Friend Or Foe
Before you can answer this question, you need to do a little research. Is this person a friend or a foe? If it's the annoying drunk that's been hitting on you all night, then it's payback time. If it's an office party, and this is the person trying to take your job, oh well, I guess you see nothing. Now, if it's the Boss, you have to decide if he's an asshole you should let suffer, or are you an ass kisser, in which case not only will you tell him, but you will wipe it off for him.
So by now we've established that a foe will be wearing that booger all night as long as you have your way. A friend, however, must be told.

I Got Something To Tell You
So you've gone through the process and have decided this person needs to know. How to tell them? You could just say it in front of everyone, but that's a bit awkward. So let's try these alternative methods.
Let Someone Else Tell Them
Just find someone else and tell them about the booger. You goal is to get them to inform the person. You don't have to deal with an uncomfortable situation. Of course you will get no credit, and possibly questioned by this person as to your decision not to say anything.
You could always use some kind of sign language. Try rubbing your nose discreetly. Hopefully the person will catch on. If not, you'll just be labeled a cocaine addict who's been snorting lines all night.
When guys have open zippers on their pants, there are secret codes that can inform someone what's going on. Things like, "The garage door is open", will cause every male to check "the garage door".
Only secret code I could think of was, "How's it hanging?", but that already has a meaning in the male world. So i guess there is no secret code. Maybe we should create one and inform the world.
With Smartphones everywhere, why not just send a text or email? Sure it's rather impersonal, but you got to admit it's not awkward. If there are a lot of drunks at this party, just find the passed out drunk, and use their phone. That way you are in the clear.
Just pull the person to the side and let them know. You could console them during thier embarrassment. Who knows, it could lead to a loving relationship. Besides if you don't tell them, the Boogieman will come and take them away!
