Rhinoplasty for a more feminine and attractive nose.
Thank you for your questions and pictures regarding your nose. After reviewing your pictures and questions, I think you have a good base and foundation of your nose from which to refine and improve. I see the bony/cartilaginous hump you have and the bulbous tip. I would recommend adding a small cartilaginous graft to the radix region (where your nose and eyes meet), shaving down your bump, and refining your cartilaginous tip. You may need spread grafts, but would need to examine you more carefully. Best of luck!

The challenge is that every nose is different and each person's goal is different. That's why I value 3D simulation. It's not a guarantee of outcome, but it does get the surgeon and the patient on the same page to create a goal that is appropriate for your face.
I recommend a consultation with a rhinoplasty specialist. Photos will be taken along with a critical examination of the nose both inside and out. The surgeon can discuss what is safely possible with your nose.

Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do and how technically to do it based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
