  • A hack to contour your nose using just your fingers recently went viral on TikTok.
  • To test it out, you only need your contour product of choice and, of course, your fingers.
  • One editor put the makeup hack to the test and was impressed with the results.

A few weeks ago, I had my second run-in with contact dermatitis and my first run-in with steroid acne. All in all, it meant that I was out of the skin-care and makeup game for almost three weeks. Although I prefer to go makeup-free more often than not, when the three weeks were almost up, I was honestly itching to slap on some new makeup looks I had been eyeing. During the weeks when I was unable to use any of my favorite products, I spent a lot of time browsing TikTok and saving tons of makeup hacks to test out in the future.

One I was most excited to try was a finger-painting nose-contour hack from TikTok user Theresa B. In the video, she contours her nose using just a contour stick and her fingers, and the hack is quick and easy and looks amazing.

Normally when I do my contour, I draw it directly onto my nose using my contour product of choice. From there, I blend out everything with a damp beauty blender. If I really want to be precise, sometimes I'll use a makeup brush to draw it on. If I'm in a rush, sometimes I'll just bronze my nose all over. Either way, I've never contoured my nose using just my fingers.

Before testing out the hack, I started by applying my makeup normally to the majority of my face. I applied a tiny bit of my all-time-favorite concealer, the Lawless Conseal the Deal Concealer ($26); some blush; and a tiny bit of lip liner, and then it was time to contour my nose.

Instead of drawing contour directly onto my nose, I applied the product to the pads of one of my pointer fingers. In the video I had seen on TikTok, Theresa B. used the Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Contour Skinstick ($28), however, I opted to use the Rare Beauty Warm Wishes Bronzer Stick ($23) because I had it on hand. From there, I rubbed both of my pointer fingers together to evenly disperse the product. Next, I traced the pigment along the tip of my nose as well as the inner nostril area to make a V shape. Then, I dabbed the remainder of product underneath the beginning of each eyebrow. With my clean fingers, I then blended out everything by dragging the product down the bridge of my nose to connect the two points together.

The Rare Beauty Bronzer Stick blends extremely well, so I wasn't worried about having too much product on my face - in fact, I was a little worried about the opposite. I ended up having to apply the bronzer to the pads of my pointer fingers twice, but once I finally had enough product on my nose, I loved the end results.

The hack contoured my nose easily, and it was 10 times faster than any other contour trick I've tried in the past, with really impressive results. I also didn't use a single ounce of concealer or highlighter on my nose, but it still looked slimmer than ever. I love that it was quick and precise, because I find that I usually have to sacrifice one or the other when doing my makeup.

I recently went on a trip to Mexico and forgot my beauty blender, so I actually used this hack every time I did my makeup. I loved the end result, and it's a hack I plan on using even now that I'm back home.
