Making a big nose look smaller ?
Posted 12 August 2008 - 01:29 AM
a big nose look smaller. I've used a darker powder on the sides
and that helps a little.
Anyone know of any good plastic surgery forums that I
can research rhinoplasty? I think that is what I really need
to do but I can't find any forums where I can talk to real
people like here at MUT.

It may not be as nice as some other girls noses, but I believe embracing it and maybe using a little bit of makeup is the best and not to mention cheapest way of loving your nose the way it is.

I used to consider having rhinoplasty very seriously and I convinced myself that I needed to have it done but with a little contouring of my nose I feel now that all those thoughts of surgery were ridiculous and I've realised that even without makeup there are no real problems with my nose.
When contouring, you have to take a good look at your nose and identify the areas which require highlight and those which require shade. Try to only shade on the lower part of the nose, not too much further up or if you do keep it light because contouring on the bridge looks odd or at least that is what I have found from past experience. I find also that running a highlight down the middle of the nose gives the illusion that it is more narrow. I use YSL Touche Eclat to do this but you could use a light coloured e/s or any other face highlighter as long as it isn't too shimmery or it'll look obvious.
If your nose is bent or crooked that you'll want to highlight the side of the nose which bends in the way and shadow the side that sticks out.
Hope this made sense and I wasn't just rambling pointlessly.

I would definitely try perfecting your contouring and really give it a chance before getting surgery as surgery is drastic and permanent and has the potential to go very wrong! I wish you the best!

There's a tiny portion on contouring noses here:

As for noses, I think every part of someone is beautiful and make up should let you enhance your individual beauty. I'm very much against plastic surgery unless you really need it in case of a traumatic event that's left you with horrible scars/burns/etc. Some people still get it, but make sure you think about it carefully and don't act based on emotion. Even if you've wanted it for a long time, that could still be based on being emotional over it for a long time. Often once you get the surgery, you'll want another and then another. So think about if you really need it.
I'm not trying to tell you what to do because it is ultimately your choice, but I think people should really think about it before they go and open themselves up and have something cut out or put in when it's not necessary. Also, remember that all surgery leaves scars.

also making my eyes the focus of my makeup with bolder eye color seems to help.
while i agree that it is respectable to embrace what you were born with, ive also known plenty of people that are SO happy after having plastic surgery for whatever reason. for myself i feel like im too old now to worry about fixing my nose, and its really no big deal to me now, but i wish i had done it when i was 18 !
