    The Nose(y) Affair

    Fat, long, crooked, whatever your nose looks like, and you have always been very open about not liking it. Don’t worry, you can easily fix the way your nose looks without getting a nose job done. Contouring or highlighting your nose with just a few sweeps of bronzer and a highlighting pen can trick the eye and make your nose appear thinner. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Hooded Eyes

    Eyelids that aren’t smooth and visible make your eyes look hooded. Don't use dark eyeshadows. Instead, opt for medium to light blends of color. You can also bring out eyes with false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Pale Skin

    Embrace it if you have porcelain skin. Just get into a habit of wearing sunscreen everyday whether it rains or shines. Light, porcelain skin is prone to sun’s damaging effects. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Freckles

    It’s almost impossible to cover up freckles without ending up with a "cake face”. Apply fresh lemon juice on the affected skin and gently massage the area. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Do this twice a day. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Crooked Teeth

    Avoid bold lipsticks so that it doesn’t bring attention to your teeth. Instead, play up your eyes as pretty as you can. Affordable clear braces are a huge hit among adults with crooked teeth. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Big Eyes

    You are lucky to have naturally big eyes. For big blue eyes, wear blue top or dress but not blue eye shadows. Jeweled colours can help you make a statement if you have big brown eyes. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Saggy Chin

    Ageing can cause excessive growth of chin hair, turkey wattle, or a double chin. Either way, you might want to conceal what's going on under the neck with plastic surgery or liposuction under your chin. You also might get a facelift. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Acne Scars

    You can disguise a concave scar by using an angled brush dipped in a concealer that's a shade lighter than your skin tone. Fill in the center of the pockmark without going over the edges and then dust skin with translucent powder. If the scar is raised, use a concealer that matches your skin tone and pat the scar with the concealer, setting the concealer with powder. Image Courtesy: Getty
