hi! would you be willing to post a pic of yourself to give people more of an idea of what kind of advice to give?

i know that people contour their noses to make them smaller by highlithing the bridge area of the nose with light shimmery product and using a bronzer type of color on the sides of the nose. maybe if you swiatch that around, it might get the affect that you want??

Hi!


I have used shading on many a nose to tone down certain characteristics of different noses. It works but it does not work miracles. I do it on myself if I am going somewhere really special and want to look my best. You can actually shade and highlight all the contours of your face to give a more defined look. It may take you some time and practice to get it right because it really is not an easy thing to do. Perhaps it might be worth it for you to save your money and go get a makover at your local MAC store and ask them to show you how. It's really tough to explain to you how to do it over the posts. It really needs to be shown. You will need two colors. One that is lighter than your skin and another that is darker. This can be in the form of liquid foundation or regular powder eyeshadows in neutral colors. (nothing too shimmery) Practice practice, practice and blend, blend blend!

The other thing you should consider is that the more defined your eyes, the more the focus is off your nose and on your eyes. Having a beautiful eye application really balances your features. Try to be happy with what you have. I know it's easier said than done but you are so young still. You need time to grow and blossom into yourself.

However, I know exactly what you are talking about. I myself hate my nose and still consider a nose job a viable option. I need more time to think about it. I wouldn't do it anytime soon though.

Has anyone here had a nose job? What was it like and are you happy with the results?

Hi Alina,

My name is Lisa and I'm also from Tampa Fl,

I agree with the others here about the contoring. But you do have to do it right or it will turn out bad.

Alright..there we go ty trisha
..Wow so many nice people on here


Curvaciiiious,I looked at the picture and think you are a beautiful young girl and your nose is beautiful too. Like I had mentioned in my last post, if you are really bothered by it, consider getting your Mom to take you to a reputable makeup company counter and get them to show you how to contour your nose. You can take a foundation with a slightly darker hue than your skin and take a very small amount and try applying it gently at the tip and slightly around the bottom close to the opening of your nostrils. It's pretty hard to describe exact placement. The slightly darker hue will shade any areas you put the foundation. Just don't leave any un blended or you'll look hideous.

it's no problem
and yes, the girls on here are wonderful! everyone is so nice

when you go to mac, you might want to look around at the makeup artists. see any whos makeup you like. or if they're actually doing a makeover, kind of peek over to see if you like what they are doing. just remember that mid makeup applications always looka little funky because they might not be finished blending and all of that. lol

curvii...you are gorgeous! stunning. really. don't worry. NO ONE, besides yourself, thinks your nose is too big, long, short, thin, crooked, etc...

your nose looks perfect for your lovely face.

Not to make light of the situation, b/c I know that no matter what people say...you may always think your nose is just not right for you....but I think it's spectacular and if you're willing to swap I can include a free foundation so it will match your skin. - Seriously though....your nose, your facial features, lips and eyes are excellent. I do hope you find the answer you were looking for at the MAC counter (or wherever you decide to go).


Just so you know I have nose insecurities, too, but the way I figure it...if I were to ever change, I wouldn't be me anymore.

Curvi I am jumping on the bandwagon to say that OMG you are BEAUTIFUL!! I also sometimes think I have a too large nose for my face, and eventually you just have to get to the point where you just realize that if you change something about yourself, you won't really be you anymore...

I totally believe in embracing your whole self, and while I don't always like my nose, I would feel odd about getting a nose job and feeling like I was looking at someone else's face in the mirror for the rest of my life.

Btw, your skin and lips are amazing!! Ultimate hotness!
