Hey guys, my name is Susan, and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to teach you how to tone down a sunburned nose using makeup. Now there are a couple of tools you'll need to be able to achieve this. One being, a light moisturizer, your foundation of choice and a foundation brush or a sponge depending on your preference. Now first off we're going to mix our moisturizer with our foundation and it's important to use an equal amount of both. You don't want to use too much especially when you're treating this area. You want it to be able to still breathe while you're treating and covering. So now we've got our moisturizer and our foundation, we're just going to mix those together. I will point out that if you have extra redness in your nose area, you'll want to invest in a great color corrector. Mostly it will have to be yellow or green to counteract the redness. So now we're going to lightly apply that foundation onto your nose and it's important to make sure you cover up all spots that could get red especially around your nostrils, right down at the base of your nose and blend, blend, blend. And you don't want to rub the foundation on, you want to gently pat it down to give a more even look. And there you have it, a nice way to camouflage your sunburned nose. Now again the most important piece of this is your moisturizer because you want to be able to let it breathe and not be too heavy. Foundation alone would make your nose a little more irritated than it should be. So there you have it, try this trick at home next time you get a little sunburn on your nose.
