    Default make her upper lip curl

    I do not understand "make her upper lip curl" in the sentence
    "The thought (...) had the potency to make her upper lip curl..."


    Could someone explain it please? I tried several dictionaries, thesaurus etc but failed.
    Thanks a lot,
    Sarasara

    It is a facial expression where the mouth tightens and the upper lip becomes more prominent. People are usually totally unaware they do this.
