From the side, it's more difficult to see width of the tip, but you can see that those prominent cartilages projected out away from her face, causing the tip of the nose to appear to stick out beyond the line of her dorsum.  While narrowing the cartilages, I brought the tip of her nose closer to the face, aligning it better with the rest of her dorsum.

Questioner: My Nose Profile Has These Awkwards Lines. How Can This Particular Problem Be Fixed?
Depending on light and shadow, they are more or less evident, making my nose creepy. Also, I've been wearing glasses since I was 10 - I'm 20 now. Can these marks be a consequence of wearing glasses?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: The lines may adjust when the shape of the nose is changed, if that's a priority for you
Hi. It's never predictable how the skin will drape and fold over the nose. Were you thinking of changing the shape of your nose, too? If that were done, the folds might redrape in a way to make them less conspicuous, though it's not really predictable. See my "Web reference" link for a morph of a proposed change to your nose.

I brought it back closer to your face, raised the tip a small amount, and lowered the hump. Those are typical changes that patients request. You can see how that would change how the skin has to drape on your nose, and maybe for the better.

As far as changing the lines if you don't want to change your nose, I don't really encourage fillers, for example. I would probably just leave them alone.
