Crop bottle

Bottle in the head bottleThe bottle should have a diameter as small as possible so that the make up doesn't come in the hairline and the eyebrows! Cut off the bottle, because of the weight, keep it reasonably short (approximately 1/3 of the bottle). Cut in left and right turn tabs approximately 0.5 cm wide and about 1 cm long and bend it out. Cut in triangular or "M" on top and bottom, this should be in a size that the make-up edges are far enough away from the hairline.

Nose Modeling Clay
