  • Do not smile too wide. This may seem extreme, but if you smile too broadly, your nose will stretch out and your nostrils will actually look like rectangles. When you smile, only show your top incisors and try as much as possible to hide the lower ones. This smiling technique works to hide your wrinkles as well if any.
  • If you make your eyes look bigger, then your nose will look smaller in comparison. However, if you have a short, narrow upturned nose with a wide tip, then having a small mouth will look cute. Making your other facial features look larger makes it less visible.

  1. What a crock this article is ? a personality type based on a nose style ??. Get a new profession, whomever authored this. Gullible readers, you are fine as you are.

    • Yes, in Ireland small, cute noses are common on both women and men. Of course there are still plenty of people with larger, longer, or crooked ones too. I inherited my noses rounded tip from my Polish ancestors, but the small size and upturned end where inherited from my Irish ancestors. I have a lot of family in Ireland and many of them have small attractive noses.

  2. How is an upturned nose “unfortunate”? I think they are cute. This article is extraordinarily stupid.
