4.Using the makeup brush, extend down each side of your nose, starting from the eyebrow and ending at the side of the nostril.

5.Create a line of dark color down each side of your nose. Blend outward towards your cheek, under the eye, and around your nostril to make it look as natural as possible.

6.Apply a thin line of the lighter shade of foundation down the bridge of your nose with the makeup brush. Begin between your eyebrows and extend all the way down to the tip of your nose.

7.Softly brush the lighter color towards the contoured, darker sides of your nose to prevent any sharp lines. However, be careful not to lighten the contoured areas.

11.Use a brush to match down the dark & light matching lines of makeup.
