If you are self-conscious about the size of your nose, there are a few things that you do to make it appear smaller without resorting to extreme measures such as surgery. The tip of your nose can be made to look smaller with a few tips, tricks and suggestions. Rhinoplasty is always an option, but surgical procedures for beauty reasons are not covered by most insurance companies, and surgery can be very expensive -- as well as risky.

  1. 1

    Apply make-up to make your nose appear smaller and to cover up acne or scars that might draw attention to it. Apply a fine line of concealer down the bridge of your nose starting at the top and ending at the tip. Apply a slightly darker shade along the sides of your nose.

  2. 2

    Blend the make-up well with a blending tool or make-up brush. Blend the make-up to the point that the line between the concealer colours is not visible.

  3. 3

    Set the make-up that you have applied with a thin layer of powder make-up. This will help to keep the make-up in place and prevent shine.


  1. 1

    Wear colourful large accessories to divert attention from your nose. Wear a large hat to dry attention to the top of your head or a colourful scarf to have people looking down at it rather than directly at your face.

  2. 2

    Wear eyeglasses that complement the shade of your face. Dark rimmed glasses are known to make a person's nose look smaller.

  3. 3

    Wear large hanging earrings that draw people's eyes to the edges of your face and down.

    Body Language

  1. 1

    Position your head slightly downward and cocked a bit to the side to make our nose appear smaller.

  2. 2

    Practice with various angle and positions by having someone take photos of you or by taking self-portraits. Go through the images to see what angles make your nose appear the size that you would like it to look.

  3. 3

    Walk with confidence and feel proud of yourself. If you feel awkward or self-conscious, you could end up feeling paranoid and you could trick yourself into thinking that people are staring at the flaws that you think you have even if they are not.
