Clone what you can, then paint the rest with a really small brush.

Re: How to enhances chapped lips?

You will need to do some cloning and/or rebuilding of really nasty spots. You may be able to use burn/dodge methods to even out bits of it, but if you're not careful, it's easy to end up with something that looks very flat rather than smooth. If I didn't work on something like this for a while, I would definitely use reference material. It helps me figure out when something is definitely off track. You don't need to match the reference. You just need some idea of well moisturized lips, preferably from someone of similar appearance. I think this will help more than focusing on low level mechanical details. Good luck.

I would transplant better lips. Just Google "lips" and you can find hundreds of candidates.

That's better, but the lower lip still has a lot of the original chapping.
