Sorry for the volume change in the video - you will need to adjust your volume HIGHER on your computer during the demonstration.
Contouring the nose can be tricky because everyone just thinks "oh, i'll just draw two lines down the side and it will look better". Sometimes that only makes things worse depending on what nose shape you have.
Here i have outlined the most common nose shapes.
Full Directions for each nose shape are below and video clip is above.
Bulbous Nose Shape:
Shade tip of nose on either side. The bridge may or may not need correcting - check to make sure. Highlight the bridge of the nose.
Irregular Nose Shape:
Draw a straight line down the nose ignoring any curve. Do not highlighter the bridge unless necessary (i.e. - the bridge is very narrow).
Shadowed Nose Bridge Shape:
Highlight bridge of nose (usually between eyebrow) - shade down the sides of the nose.
Narrow Nose Shape:
Highlight inner eye area and down bridge of the nose and slightly onto sides of the nose depending on how wide you want the bridge to look.
Triangular Nose Shape:
Shade half way down the bridge. Stop. Shade the rest - leaving a shape in the middle.
Highlight the gap you left.
Flat Nose Shape:
Shade the bridge of the nose and into the brow area. Blend well.
I used only cream foundations for this tutorial. I use Kett Cream foundations in the Olive Range.
As mentioned i used shades that were much lighter and darker as to "show" the placement.
I hope you find it interesting and you learn something from it.
