To Downplay a Large Nose...

Avoid outdated "shading"techniques, such as using a dark blush or powder on either side of your noseto streamline its shape, says Nick Barose, a celebrity makeup artist basedin New York City. This trick only works in photos.

Try: smoothing a subtle shimmer cream (if your skin is normal to dry) orpowder (if your skin is oily) down the bridge of your nose to opticallyalter its size.

Tip: Make your lips or eyes thefocal point of your face, suggests Victoria's Secret makeup artist CharlieGreen. For example, go for heavily lined "cat eyes" or bold, red lips.
