How to conceal large or wide nose

I used to not to like my nose, and sometimes I still don't, but I've accepted it now. It kind of reminds me of a small potato. A prominent nose can be considered a sign of character, nobility even. I think it’s a matter of taste.
But if you wish to change the way your nose looks like, you can without undergoing a plastic surgery, which in my opinion shouldn’t never be considered.

If you are also born with wide or  large nose, you need to know where to point it to make it look appealing or interesting to look at. 
So it’s all about angles, angles, angles and practice, practice, practice.

- if nose is not completely straight, tilt it slightly upwards.
-if too long, look directly, straight into the camera.
-if too wide, look into camera but with face directed slightly to the side.
-If too much nostril, look into camera with nose pointed down and eyes facing up.

How to conceal your nose with make up
When it comes to creating the nose of your dreams, keep in mind the golden rule of camouflage: dark colors recede, and light colors bring out.
For shading I usually like to use cream foundations or concealer in  a shade or two darker, but you could also use matte eye shadows or matte bronzer.  

Long Nose
-to make the long nose appear shorter, apply a bronzing powder or shader to the tip of the nose. It will give the illusion of the nose being smaller.
-highlight the surrounding skin and slightly onto the sides of the nose. Keep blusher away from the nose.
-you could also try to shade just across the middle of the nose bridge, that would also shorten the nose.
-accentuate eyes OR lips, not both, as your nose is already accentuated, three strong features will look a mess and not aesthetically pleasing.
-accentuate cheekbones to compliment a long nose and elongate the face.

Wide nose
-To hide the appearance of a wide nose, apply the lighter foundation and powder down the center of the nose. Blend into the surrounding areas for a natural look.
-to compliment a wide nose, use winged eye makeup which widens the rest of the face.

Bump on the nose
 - apply shader to the bump.

Crooked nose
- apply shader to the side that goes out, and highlighter to the side that goes in
