Face Contouring Makeup Tips
How to contour your face with makeup
You can give your face a mini makeover without resorting to plastic surgery. With the right contouring makeup tricks, create the illusion of a slender nose, sleeker jawline and all-over slimmer face. Here's how...
How to contour your nose to make it look slimmer
To contour a wide nose to slimming effect, apply the darkest color to the outside of the bridge and keep the center lighter.
