Nose contouring?

I hate my nose, it's too wide and I really think it takes away from my face. I tried the darker shades technique but it didnt work wellfor me. I have a wider nose than most people so there method don't work for me. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks! :)

so i recently starting asking this question myself....im rocking in the exact same boat as you....small almond eye, wide nose, and big full lips....couldnt find the answer so i did some experimenting and found the answer....HIGHLIGHT INSTEAD OF CONTOURING...here's what I did

STARTERS: PRIME your face as USUAL
STEP 1: Take some SHIMMER VANILLA (NOT WHITE) EYESHADOW... SCRUNCH YOUR NOSE AND APPLY THAT The OUTER CREASES ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE NOSE AND BRING IT UP TO THE EYEBROWS IN A STRAIGHT LINE ( JUST LIKE CONTOURING)
STEP 2; PUT CONCEALER RIGHT ON TOP OF THAT AND WHERE YOU WOULD NORMALLY PLACE IT
STEP 3; APPLY FOUNDATION AS USUAL
STEP 4: APPLY REVLON'S PHOTOREADY POWDER IN 030 (MEDIUM/DEEP) TO YOUR NOSE AREA JUST LIKE THE SHADOW AND USUAL HIGHLIGHT AREAS
STEP 5: COMPLETE YOUR FACE AS USUAL

I really love the revlon and suggest it specifically cause it really brings light to my face as you can see in the brighter picture....i didnt do a complete makeup routine just focused on my nose...still made a difference

HIGHLIGHT INSTEAD OF CONTOURING
I must say you're very pretty. Your nose gives your face character. If you really don't like your nose, try to put focus on your gorgeous eyes.

Nose contouring typically needs to be applied with highlight down the center of your nose as well.
RubyDenise posted images of Rihanna and yes she definitely has nose contouring but she also has highlight applied down the center of the nose in the middle of the contouring to appear less wide.
In addition, this is an illusion created with makeup and in person it will be almost unrecognizable. You will notice contour and highlight the most in pictures you take of yourself. Compare a before and after image of yourself to see if you can see a difference. Try it out a few times until your satisfied- you will learn a lot by experimenting.

I agree completely with GoodFaith. I would kill for lips like yours by the way!

First of all you are very very pretty. Your nose is a part of your face so don't hate it, embrace it. That nose will allow you to smell the flowers all the guys will be sending you :) Now take a look at Rihanna. She is gorgeous and she has a large nose too. I have added a few pics of her. Notice how she does her eye make up, it brings everything in balance. Pic one is no make up.

When I look at you, the first thing I notice, is your beautiful eyes. I would play those up with some golden brown eyeshadow and maybe some fake lashes (MAC has some that are super fine-and look real). If you make your eyes appear bigger with some makeup tricks, it will put all your features into balance and nobody will be paying much attention to your nose.
