When working with changing the shape of your face for a costume, learning where to highlight, darken, and contour can make a world of difference. Here are a few highlights from the link:
Cheeks
To make your cheekbones more prominent, apply contour in the hollows of your cheeks.  Then highlight just accross the cheekbone.  Be sure to blend the products where they meet to create a seemless flow.
Eyes
For your eyes, apply highlighter underneath the eyes and contour in the crease of your eyes.  Then apply highlighter just under eyebrows.  This will make them appear bigger.  Follow the natural shape of your eyes
Nose
To make your nose appear longer and more even, apply contour down the sides of your nose.  It might be best to use an eyeshadow brush for this.  Then apply highlight along the top of your nose.  If you have a long nose, applying contour just under the tip can make it appear shorter.  Stay concise with your applications.
Going to do a week’s worth of tutorials on make up. Might end up doing a few double days also.
