Different types of lips

They found that while good lips can make an attractive face even more attractive, they cannot salvage a face that is unattractive in other respects. "The lips can convey real warmth and receptivity," said Professor Cunningham.

According to Dr Marisa Coen in her essay for The Science of Relationships, fuller lips have long been desired by women because, as evolutionary psychology suggests, they signify strong mating potential. “Facial features serve as a cue of attractiveness,” explains Coen.

#Heart-shaped lips.

People who have heart-shaped lips tend to be strong-willed and independent. Women who have such lips, and even most men, are more likely to be glamorous, witty and passionate. (Think Marilyn Monroe vibes) Heart- shaped lips reveal a creative, artistic and energetic personality.

#Perfectly proportioned, full lips.

Top-heavy lips.Both lips should have a defined ” Vermillion boarder”. – The upper lip should have an accentuated ” Cupid's bow “. The upper lip should project 1-2 mm in front of the lower lip. The ideal bottom lip should be 1.618 times thicker than the top lip.

#Top heavy lips

The findings were pretty interesting since the trend, especially in the plastic surgeon's office, is for a visibly larger upper lip, much like Kylie Jenner's infamous pout. ... However, a similar 2017 study found that a 1:1 ratio of the upper and lower lip is the most attractive.

#Thin lips.

Women with thin lips—think Kirsten Dunst—tend to be loners and rather timid, according to Haner. Their introverted personality also means that they are self-reliant; they are OK with being alone and are perfectly content with the idea of being independent.

Wide lips.

"A woman who has large lips, suggesting a strong mating potential, with average length and width ratios will always be more attractive than a woman with narrow lips and average length and width ratios," wrote the researchers. ... "Your lips get thinner as you age, but fuller lips are a signifier of youth," says Gordon.
