GOOD news for ev­ery­one who has con­cerns about the length of their nose – if you wear glasses, choos­ing the right model can make a long nose ap­pear smaller.

That is the ad­vice from the KGS, an op­ti­cal-in­dus­try body in Ger­many which pro­motes qual­ity in eye­glasses.

The po­si­tion of the nose bridge has an ef­fect on the ap­pear­ance of the nose. The higher up you push the eye­glasses, the longer the nose seems. (top)

A curved nose bridge has the same ef­fect. This means high and curved bridges suit peo­ple with turned-up noses, ac­cord­ing to the KGS.

On the other hand a bridge that is lower down can help make a long nose ap­pear shorter.

If you don’t want the ridge of your nose to ap­pear un­even or crooked, you should choose a wide nose bridge.
