What’s your favorite feature? Eyes? Lips? Both? I am not sure which one is more important, but lips definitely deserve your attention. Pretty lips are already half of beauty, let’s get busy!
Thin, flat lips
If you have naturally thin lips and I mean by it, you’ve been always that way, there is not much you can do. Use lip-plumping products to add a little fullness. These products contain hyaluronic acid, chilli pepper extract or cinnamon, which work by making your lips swell. This solution is only temporal and you shouldn’t expect anything dramatic. If you want a longer lasting effect, consider lip fillers.If you feel you are losing lip volume due to aging, you can drastically improve your looks by sticking to lip workout. Fortunately, it’s very simple, fast and absolutely safe.
Simply press your lips together. Hold for at least six seconds, then release. Start with five repetitions daily and slowly build up to twenty repetitions. To avoid creating wrinkles, place your fingers on the corners of your mouth and pull slightly.
This exercise will make your lips fuller and smoother. Pucker your lips with forceful tension as if you are getting ready for a kiss. You should keep tension for at least six seconds, then repeat again.
Just remembered my grandma! As a child, I was wondering about her lip shape. It looked like perfect U upside down! Now I know this was nothing out of the ordinary, although it seemed it was. As you age, your lips slowly transform from 🙂 to :(. You want to stop this as early as possible and, preferably, reverse it so you can be back to :). Apparently my grandma didn’t have much time to worry about her looks, but fortunately I do. Here is how to fix it…
Pull your lips over your teeth and smile! Again, the movement should be forceful. You should feel a little pain or discomfort. Hold for at least six seconds, release and repeat.

I researched on smoker’s lines a bit and it seems like the only real solution is fillers. If you aren’t ready for fillers, choose bold colors for your lipstick to divert attention away from the lines.
Use lip scrubs to get rid of flakes, then apply a wax-based balm under your lip gloss or lipstick.
