Making your nose look bigger is not at the top of most Westerners’ must-have beauty techniques, but stylish Japanese blades are apparently keen on giving their schnozzes a lift! From the ever-entertaining pages of Men’s Spider magazine (the slightly more host-centric version of Men’s Knuckle!), behold the step by step instructions for nose enhancing makeup and eyebrow shape-shifting!
First, the nose:
If you want to make your nose look less flat, brush a stripe of light-colored foundation powder down the center. Then darken the sides of your nose next to your eyes and on the flange-y bits at the bottom to make it look narrower.
Now, the brows:
1: Trim down to a stubble.
2: Tweeze errant hairs
3: Pencil in the shape (choose from Regular, Wild, Smart and Sharp!)
4: Brush on powder over the pencil
5: Use mascara to highlight the little buzzcut hairs.
And yes, these are beauty tips for men!
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
