Apply a foundation in a shade close to your natural skin tone to your nose with your fingers or an applicator sponge.
Apply foundation a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone to the sides of your nose. This will accentuate the contours of your nose, making it appear longer, according to EZ make-up.com.
Using your fingers or a make-up brush, gently blend the foundation on your nose, making sure the line between the darker and lighter colours is not visible.
Apply powder a few shades lighter than your natural skin tone to the centre of your nose using a make-up brush. ShoppingLifestyle.com recommends blending the powder until it is smooth to avoid noticeable lines.
Emphasise your cheekbones to draw attention to your nose. Apply flattering blush colours to the apples of your cheeks, according to BecomeGorgeous.com.
