Lip lines are just the worst – those nasty little wrinkles above our lips that totally detract from our gorgeous lipstick. They can be hereditary, from sun damage or caused by smoking and once they arrive they just won't budge. In the quest for advice on minimising with those pesky lip lines, we stumbled across some brilliant video tutorials by Trinny Woodall of What Not To Wear fame. Trinny talks about everything from how to wear lip colour if you have lip lines to great anti-ageing advice on preventing lip lines. The beauty guru seems to have tried and tested every product going and looks amazing for it, so we're all ears…
In one Vlog, Trinny reveals that her secret product for achieving a red lip if you have lip lines is WEI by Lady Berry. She says: "I put it on my lip line and it does two things: it's going to fill in my lines and make my lipstick not bleed." She adds: "I've tried so many things and this is the best thing." Trinny then pats on the bright lip colour with her fingers, which looks fantastic. A must try!
Trinny reveals in another video tutorial that she's had lip lines since she was 30. The star explains that she has long, medium and short term solutions for keeping those lines at bay. Her long term fix is to have Botox on the lines every few months to prevent the lines deepening and stop her face 'turning into a shrivelled prune'.

The beauty guru's medium term solution is to use a product by Skiceuticals called AOX Lip Complex. "I put a bit around my lips and then I put on my normal cream," says Trinny, who also uses a dermol roller on her lip area every week. "I do think that dermol rolling - done in moderation, don't go mad - helps because it's going down, slightly attacking your dermis and saying Hey, produce collagen! We're being attacked!"
Time for operation lip lines, ladies.
