In brief: Take a measurement

An upturned nose is sometimes called an over rotated nose.
If you look at a photo of your side view, check the angle made between your upper lip and the line that makes the bottom edge of your nose as it joins your upper lip. This is the nasolabial angle. It should be 90-110 degrees for females. 90 for males. Check yours with a right angle.
