Do you think your nose is too big for your face? Does it stand out and look odd? Well, you should know that if your nose is giving you sleepless nights, there are ways to make it look smaller. Or, in the case of plastic surgery, actually make it smaller.
Surgery, but not quite like the King of Pop
Were you hoping for more affordable and painless solutions? The pain is not avoidable, but there are places, such as Thailand, where plastic surgery is available at very affordable prices. So if you decide you are ready for the pain, go ahead and get a nose job done. Your complaining days will soon be behind you.
Okay, so you don’t have the guts to go under the knife? Or maybe you don’t believe in plastic surgery. Not to worry, there are other safe and relatively easy methods to at least hide that humongous nose away!
Shake up the make-up
Applying it strategically can do a lot to deemphasize the size of your nose. The foundation does the trick. Pick one that’s of a darker shade than what you generally use. With a blending brush, apply the foundation evenly on your face. The logic here is that the size of the nose looks smaller when the shade of the foundation is darker. Hence, pick the darkest shade of foundation that you can wear, which will still suit your skin tone and not look odd. Typically, you should be fine wearing a foundation that’s two shades darker than the one you usually wear. Use your fingertips if you prefer, or use the blending brush to contour down the sides of your nose. It makes your nose appear smaller. If your nose is not only big but extended as well, then add some color to the tip of your nose to shorten its perceived length. Flaring nostrils aren’t exactly a pretty sight. If you have naturally big nostrils, try sweeping color around your nostrils, to make them look smaller.
Emphasize your other features
You may be unsatisfied with your big nose, but you will no doubt have other beautiful features. Like pretty eyes, or a sweet smile. Emphasize your best features with the help of make-up. When you do so, your highlighted features will capture people’s attention. You will look your best, and it will also draw people’s attention away from that nose! To do this, use a lighter shade for your best features, such as your cheekbones. For the ones who do not wish to highlight your nose, use a darker shade. It’s true when they say that make-up can transform a person – for better or worse! So it will do you good to seek out the advice from make-up artists at your salon or from your friends.
Effective Hair Styling
Now, hair can also do wonders for your face. The right type of cut will flatter your face, in turn making you look much better. It can also help highlight your best features. There exist hairstyles that will draw attention away from your nose. Talk to your hairdresser. Get his or her opinion on what would look good on you.
Picking the right glasses
For those of you who wear glasses, pick the right pair. Don’t pick a pair that emphasizes your big nose. Instead, pick on that has the opposite effect.
Live with it!
While you may try all or some of the above tips, try thinking about the fact that your big nose is part of what makes you, you. Being with yourself, a big nose or not, is important. Unless you learn that, you are probably never going to feel secure about the way you look, even after you splurge on that surgical treatment!
