What Are The Best Ways to Protect and Flatter Those Big or Little Lips Your Inherited

 What size lips did you inherit? 



I inherited big lips from my paternal grandmother’s side of the family.

When I was growing up, thin (sophisticated lips) were in style.


I had many conversations with my younger sister, Suzi, who also inherited those big lips.



Suzi and I came up with a plan.  When we grew up, we would get lip surgery to make our lips thinner.


Did you know, lips naturally lose volume as we age.


As I have gotten older, my lips have naturally become less full.


My lips aren’t as full as they once were, but I no longer feel they are too big.



Whatever the size of your lips, the skin on your lips is quite thin and vulnerable to sun, heat, wind and cold damage.


In addition, if you don’t drink enough water, drink carbonated drinks, or take medication that is dehydrating, your lips can end up looking like you have been lost in the desert for days.



Think of your lips as a barometer of your stomachs health.


When they are dried out, it could indicate your stomach does not have enough hydration.



How can you care for your lips, so they stay beautiful besides avoiding caffeine, and drinking lots of water?



Protect your lips from too much sun exposure.

These Tips can apply to our lips as well as our skin




Whether you have big or little lips, the right shade of lipstick or colored lip gloss with a spf sunscreen rating can not only protect your lips, but help you to look healthy and vibrant.


Just because a lipstick color is being promoted by the fashion industry,  does not mean it will be flattering to you.


How can you find out which lipstick colors really flatter your unique coloring?


Choose a lipstick a shade or two darker than the inside of your lower lip.


To discover additional flattering lipstick shades get a  Color 1, Smart Chart done.

Besides 40 to 50 of your best clothing and makeup colors, a Color 1, Smart Chart will contain at least 3 of your best lipstick colors and as many as 12 of your best lipstick shades.
