My original face is on the left most image, I was thinking a rhinoplasty (2nd), and a lip lift (3rd)? (Photos)

Rhinoplasty and Lip Lift Consultation
Thank you for sharing your question. It is difficult to evaluate without seeing different angles of your face, however you may be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. Based on the changes you made in the simulation photo, it looks like you want to refine the tip and reduce the level of protrusion. An in-person consultation is necessary in order to determine how realistic these expectations are. In my practice, I like to use 3-D volumetric photos to simulate realistic surgical outcomes for my patients.
With regards to a lip lift, an in person evaluation is necessary to decide if you are a good candidate. Based on your simulation, it looks like you have enhanced the volume of your lips, which can be done non-surgically with a dermal filler such as Restylane or Juvederm. Since you already have a specific aesthetic in mind, I recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to discuss your nose and lips. He/she will be able to evaluate you in person and offer customized suggestions for your facial features.
I'd like to take a better try at a morph.
See the "Web reference" link, just below my response. I used your posted photo to show why I'm a little uncomfortable with your morph. While it would be good to make your nose smaller, I think the angle of the tip is a little extreme, even though I personally like short noses myself. The link explains what's going on, and how you can re-take the photo to allow a better pre-op evaluation.
The profile view also doesn't demonstrate the width of the tip, which might be a factor in a rhinoplasty on you.
Your nose is also a good example of why computer imaging is mandatory in rhinoplasty. You need to know exactly what the surgeon is planning to accomplish -- what features he thinks he can change, and by how much he thinks he can change them. When you see his goals, you'll know whether he has an eye for a beautiful nose, and whether he shares your opinion of what constitutes a beautiful nose. You'll also know whether the changes he proposes are enough to be meaningful to you, and whether he understands your wishes enough to address all of your priorities. Then, he must show you before and after photos to prove that he can actually accomplish what he draws on the computer.
In my hands, a lip lift should not be performed at the same time. Fractions of a millimeter are important in a rhinoplasty, and we don't want any surgery adjacent to the nose to complicate the results of the nose surgery.
Cute RealSelf handle, by the way!

Rhinoplasty and Lip Augmentation
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us. In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features. Respectfully,
