*2023* How to look *really*pretty with a big nose? 11 real ways!

Wondering how to look pretty with a big nose?

Girl, no worries as I’ve got you all covered in this article.

But first thing first, may I remind you that we are all perfect imperfections on this planet?

Indeed, in a world that unconsciously promotes a relatively small, and straight nose as the symbol of beauty (I really hate that), sometimes we can get self-conscious about our noses.

After all, I believe we’ve all been in those not-so-confident days, aren’t we?

That said, there’s nothing wrong if we want to figure out some ways to contour the nose for a confidence boost!

If plastic surgery is too invasive for you, below are the natural 11 tips I’ve gathered.

From contouring to selfie techniques to hair-to-nose exercises to make you look pretty with a big nose.

Enjoy ladies!

1. CONTOUR YOUR NOSE WITH MAKEUP

As Francois Nars said, “Treat your makeup like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure – it can transform you.

This quote is a 10/10.

Ladies, never underestimate the power of makeup as it can truly size down a bulbous nose in 5 minutes.

Go to YouTube and you can find endless tutorials that teach you how to contour the nose with bronzer and highlight.

As a heads up, that’s truly a rabbit hole.

Added to this, don’t forget eyebrows also play a role as well.

If you want to fake a small nose, always draw eyebrows slightly closer to the center for the illusion!

If you wonder, this is my favorite contour stick from KIKO. Super handy and most importantly it does the job.

2. MAKE THE NOSE LOOK SMALLER IN SELFIES WITH THE RIGHT LIGHT

One of the frustrating moments of having a big nose is the time when we take hundreds of selfies and just don’t feel right.

In photos, sometimes our noses can look even bigger and that’s super annoying.

So is that possible to make the nose look smaller in selfies? YES.

The first tip I can tell you is always to avoid the harsh light directly above the head as that will accentuate the facial structure in the middle – aka your nose.

Instead, taking advantage of the warm yellowish light for a soft look is always preferred.

3. FIGURE OUT YOUR BEST ANGLE FOR THE NOSE

Truly, when it comes to a perfect selfie, the angle is EVERYTHING.

You will be amazed at how different you look just by a slight adjustment of angles.

As we all have different shapes and sizes of the nose, there’s no perfect angle that fits everyone.

While some girls find success from high angles, some actually look better with low-side angle shots. So do try to experiment with that.

By the way, if you want to look slimmer in fact, a rule of thumb is 3 inches higher than the height of your eyes!

4. VOLUMINOUS HAIR HELP DRAW ATTENTION FROM THE NOSE

To make a big nose looks smaller, it’s all about playing tricks on proportion. That said, voluminous hair work WONDERS.

Compared to thin straight long hair, a curly-wavy hairstyle just makes your face and nose appear to be smaller instantly.

If you are too lazy to curl and style your hair every day religiously, a simple trick is to put all your hair on one side.

Not only it’s universally feminine and attractive to showcase your shoulder, it just draws people’s attention away from your face to your shoulder.

After all, it’s all about the details.

5. ALWAYS OPT FOR A HAIRSTYLE THAT OPENS UP YOUR FACE

For such a long time, I thought the more hair covers my face, the better I look. Obviously, this is SO WRONG.

I know bangs are cute but let’s not forget they will narrow down the focus and put your nose in the spotlight.

Instead, opt for a hairstyle that can open up the face so your nose can appear to be smaller in comparison.

As a round face girl myself, I must say showing out my forehead boosts my confidence greatly as it helps elongate my face and contour my nose at the same time.

Or else, simply putting your hair behind the ears can do the trick too.

6. OPT FOR LIGHT HAIR OVER DARK HAIR FOR A SOFTER LOOK

With the soft light hair color, it blurs out the frame of your face and nose.

Colors like honey blonde, and light ash brown all work great to create softer, gentler facial features.

To maximize the effect, definitely go for the highlight.

With slightly different yet similar hues combined together, it creates more dimension and depth to the hair as a whole.

And yes, it DOES make you look like you have a crazy amount of hair!

Of course, hair color can be very personal as we all have different tones of skin.

If you are dark skin, I would say warm sandy dark hues would be ideal.

But anyway, it’s always worth investing time to figure your best hair color out.

7. AVOID CLOTHES WITH HIGH NECKLINES

Despite the make-up tricks and hairstyles, it’s time to talk about clothes.

As much as I adore the sophistication of high-neck tops, I must say that are not flattering to big-nose girls.

Again, it, unfortunately, draws eyes to your face and nose. Added to this, a round neck top is also a big No-no.

That said, an off-shoulder top is always been my favorite. If you want to add some spiciness, go try out the low-neck top!

8. CHUNKY ACCESSORIES IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

Accessories are girls’ best friends and this statement just can’t be more right. For girls with big noses, chunky necklaces are the real deal.

Whether you put on statement earrings or a glittery long necklace, it just makes your face and nose look daintier and elevate your aura almost instantly.

Speaking of the chunky choker necklace, that can be risky to wear.

If you have an oval or heart pointy face shape and a long neck, good for you.

But as a girl with chubby cheeks, I will definitely stay away from chocker.

9. MAKE THE NOSE LOOK SMALLER NATURALLY WITH NOSE EXERCISE

If you wonder how to make a big nose look smaller without makeup, nose exercise is here for you.

For the girls who are still in the puberty stage, you are in luck as you can for sure change your nose.

But no worries ladies, regardless of your age, these exercises still work for you.

I’ve watched all nose transformation videos on Youtube and this one is by far the best.

From manifestation to easy nose exercise, I’m sure you will find this useful so watch it NOW!

10. NURTURE FEMININE FACIAL FEATURES AND VIBES

While most of us are not aware of it, the reason why we think the big nose is not flattering to our face is that – the big nose resembles masculine facial features while the small nose accentuates the feminine vibes.

That said, the last thing we want to do is to further accentuate our other facial structure with sharp thick black brows and overly aggressive black cat eyes.

Instead, softening your face is the main goal.

You know, curl your eyelashes, switch out the black eyeliners to dark brow eyeliner for a softer look.

All these little things help bring out the femininity in the face for a nice balance.

For more feminine-looking make-up hacks, check out these 6 tips.

Despite the face, nurturing the feminine vibes also helps greatly.

People always overlook nurturing femininity but it is actually way more important than you think.

How you talk, how you walk, how you behave, how you smile…all these contribute to your attractiveness overall.

11. ACCEPT IT AND EMBRACE YOURSELF WITH LOVE

I know it sounds cliche but ladies, embrace your nose as self-love can set you free.

As the quote goes “Beauty is self-confidence applied directly to the face”.

Despite all these makeup and outfit tricks, accepting and embracing its existence is probably the most important tip to elevate your beauty.

My mum once told me when you think you’re beautiful, people around you will find you more attractive naturally.

I always thought it was BS until realise it’s NOT.

Seriously, if you embrace yourself with grace and love, the attractiveness is truly unstoppable.

So yes, ladies, we are all beautiful in our own ways and there’s nothing we should be worrying about!
