Updated on June 24, 2011

Make up Tricks

It has to be very difficult to have a nose that is too big for your face. People with large noses are subject to teasing and ridicule, from the time they enter school.

If you might have noticed, there are many famous actors, singers and performers who have noses a little larger than normal and it has not stopped them from achieving their dreams.

While you are waiting to become famous, there are however, some tricks that can help to give your nose an “appearance” of being smaller.

These are tricks that people in the arts, movie and make-up artist may use to improve someone appearance. Try these little tricks and see what a difference they can make. Don't be afraid to experiment with these make-up tricks, you may come up with some of your own.

Changing your Hair

How you wear your hair can make a great difference in making your nose look smaller.

Show more of your face:

Try wearing your hair in an up do, such as a French twist, or pony tail. Moving your hair away from your face, helps to draw attention to you whole face, in contrast to wearing you hair down, which covers more of your face, and makes you nose more prominent.

You want to distract from your nose and allow people to see you, and not just your nose. This small change and make a big change to your appearance.

Accent your Lips

Your lips can be a very attractive and sensual part of the face. If your lips are one of your better features, why not accent the positives. Use a bright bold color lipstick to help bring out the beauty and shape of your lips. When people first look at you, their attention will be drawn to your lips first, rather than your nose.

The Eyes Have It!

Your eyes, just like your lips can be a dynamic feature to accent. The eyes are the mirror of the soul and if done properly, can draw people right in and away from you know. Make your eyes pop, with the right make up. Make your eyes memorable by using eye liner, on the top and bottom of the lids, use appropriate eye shadow, without over doing it.

Contour the Nose

Contour your nose by highlighting each side of the nose with a power a shade lighter than what you are using on the rest of your face. This can also be done with a bronzer. Also highlight the bridge of the nose to give it a thinner appearance drawing attention to the entire nose.


Don't forget that attitude plays a big part in your appearance. Have you even met a man or woman who was not exactly that attractive or were a few pounds overweight; yet the had the men or women falling all over them?

That's right attitude make a big difference. If you think you are attractive and act like you think you are all that, people will think so too and be attracted to you. So, after you have changed you hair, done you eyes, lips and contoured your nose, don't forget to put on the right attitude, and you will be beautiful!
