1. Don't be afraid to contour more of your nose than you think is necessary.

2. Always highlight down the center of your nose.

3. Add subtle shade to the tip of your nose.

4. Use matching contouring colors in the hollows of your cheekbones and around your forehead.

5. Finish your contouring look with a bit of shading along your eye sockets. This will complete the illusion of gorgeous bone structure.

6. BLEND! The lines should not look like actual lines drawn on your face.
