If you are bothered by the size of your nose in photos and wish it appeared smaller, you can accomplish this with a few simple tricks. Contouring and highlighting the nose with makeup and changing the position of your head can greatly reduce the appearance of a large nose in photos.

Purchase a cream foundation or concealer that is one shade darker than your natural skin color and another that is one shade lighter and contains light-reflecting pigments.

Apply the darker foundation with a concealer brush to the sides of the nose if you wish to slim it. To shorten the nose, apply the foundation to the tip. To straighten a crooked nose, apply straight lines down the sides. Blend the color into your skin.

Apply the lighter foundation in a strip down the center of your nose. According to Nose Cosmetic, this renders the impression of a slimmer nose. Blend the color into your skin.

Set the makeup with powder so it does not smudge.

Position your head to create the illusion of a smaller nose. According to The Beauty Bunny, tilting your head back slightly can make your nose appear smaller in photos.
