Turn That Frown Upside Down with a Corner Lip Lift

Beauty-style portrait of appealing, young woman

There is an unseemly and unpleasant expression that some people use to describe themselves. It’s initials are “RBF” and it stands for Resting B*tch Face.

Gravity is a powerful force. What goes up, must come down, right? Well, even things that started up must come down and that includes your face, breasts, arm skin, jowls, and upper lip.

Active woman stretching
