De-Emphasizing Nostrils

Don’t ask me how Kevin Ames came up with this one, but as soon as he showed it to me, I knew I had to include it in the book. It’s the easiest, most direct, and most effective way that I’ve seen of reducing the intensity of nostrils.

Step One.
Open a photo where you want to de-emphasize the subject’s nostrils.
