Lips come in all shapes and sizes

Lipstick. Great Variety of Women's Lips. Set of Mouths

Lips are a very important feature on a person’s face and it is very common for people to consider giving them a new look, it’s also relatively easy.


Before you decide which is the best option for you, here is a quick guide to lip shapes:

  1. Full lips

These are the pouty lips that are voluptuous and curvy. They are probably the most sought after lips.

  1. Thin lips

The opposite of full lips, thin lips are subtle and well defined.

  1. Round lips

Round lips look like a button and tend to make a person look cute.

  1. Downward turned

This describes lips where the lower corners are accentuated by a high-crown of the upper lip.

  1. Wide Lips

This type of lip is characterised by a broad shape, both top and bottom.

  1. Bow-shaped lips

This lip type looks like a heart.


The Golden Ratio and Your Lips

The Golden Ratio is believed to be the secret to creating aesthetically pleasing art. It has been used in structural design and art by architects, philosophers, and artists for thousands of years. Leonardo Da Vinci is thought to have used the golden ratio when painting the Mona Lisa as did Salvador Dali in his masterpiece The Sacrament of the Last Supper. The same theory can be applied to the human aesthetics.  The distance from the finger tip to the wrist in relation to the distance from the wrist to the elbow is very close to Golden Ratio. By getting the ratio right during the reshaping of the lips, your new profile will drastically improve your appearance by capturing an element of beauty; proportion is of the utmost importance in composition.
