Eyes might be the window to the soul, but did you know that your lip shape can tell you a lot about your character?
According to studies derived from ancient Chinese medicine, facial features are closely connected to your personality. Each feature works together to represent who you are.
Lip shapes are especially connected to personality. We use our lips to express our emotions and thoughts–both verbally and through the expressions we make.
So what can your lip shape tell you? The shape, size, thickness, and definition of your lips can reveal anything from underlying personality traits to the types of relationships are best for you.
Let’s take a look at what your lip shape has to say about your life and personality.
1. Naturally Full Bottom and Top Lips
If you have even and naturally full lips on both the top and bottom, you’re likely to be an empathetic person. This lip shape correlates with an innate desire to protect others and act as a mother.
People with this lip shape—like Angelina Jolie—are caring, protective, and selfless. They care deeply about others and like to maintain a close circle of friendships. Above all, they value close relationships and connection with others.
2. Regular Lips
Regular lips, also known as “Goldilocks” lips, don’t have any defining features. These lips aren’t thick or thin, and these cupid bow’s don’t have defined peaks or a noticeable lack of definition.
This lip shape points towards a stable personality. People with average looking lips are often balanced in their personal lives and careers. They have a common-sense approach to overcoming obstacles and are always ready to get things done.
They make great listeners and it’s hard to make them angry. But even if they can be stoic sometimes, they still love to have a good laugh and let loose.
3. Thin Bottom and Top Lips
People with thin lips tend to be loners and they like it that way.
If you have a thin upper and lower lip, then you’re probably naturally introverted and like to be alone. You enjoy solitude and don’t need company when going on a trip or going about your day to day life.
But even if you love being independent and self-reliant, you still feel perfectly at home in a group of close friends. You keep yourself surrounded with a few loyal friends and value close bonds.
4. Lips With a Peaked Cupid’s Bow
People with a peaked cupid’s bow–meaning that there’s a sharp dip above the middle of their top lip–tend to be extremely creative. They are likely to become talented artists, musicians, or other creatives.
They’re creative, witty, and they strive for self-expression in every way. Because they’re so quick minded and love to communicate with others, they can sometimes be impulsive and speak before thinking it through.
Despite this, they tend to be social, have a way with faces and names, and are always aware of what’s going on around them.
5. Lips With a Rounded Cupid’s Bow
If you have a rounded or less defined cupid’s bow, you’re likely to lead your life with kindness.
People with these lip shapes tend to be compassionate, great listeners, and make time for the people in their lives. Because of this, you might be deeply empathetic and become upset by others’ misfortune.
This means you’re always finding the time to help others and care for the world around you. No matter what you choose to do, your deep sensitivity and kindness are the undercurrent to the way you live your life.
6. Artificially Enhanced Lips
According to the art of Chinese face reading, changing your natural features can alter your destiny. Enhancing your upper or lower lips with lip fillers can enhance certain aspects of your personality and lead you down a new path.
An Injected Upper Lip
Plumping your upper lip so that it’s larger than your lower lip can enhance your emotional instability.
This means you’ll feel things like sadness and anger much more strongly–but you’ll also feel more energy and strength in your positive emotions like happiness. The more you plump them up, the stronger you’ll start to feel the world around you.
An Injected Bottom Lip
Adding lip fillers to your bottom lip can increase your desire to seek out pleasure. It plays on your sensual side–you’ll find more joy in the little luxuries of life.
A person with a plumped up bottom lip likely wants to be pampered. They seek out excitement in everything they do and they’re always prepared to live life to the fullest.
7. Larger Upper Lip Than Lower Lip
A person who has a larger upper lip than a lower lip is all about the drama.
They don’t hesitate to feel the full extent of their emotions and they love every part of their social lives. If you have a large upper lip, you’re likely to be an actor, comedian, or another type of performer.
You love to draw attention to yourself and you have the ability to catch people’s attention and hold it. This charisma and confidence might make you the emotional center of your friend group.
8. Larger Lower Lip than Upper Lip
If you have a larger lower lip, you’re like to be a type A personality. You value hard work, dedication, and achievement over the relationships in your life. You still love your friends and family, but you prefer to keep a small circle of loyal people around you.
Because of your intensity, you might find it hard to relax and have fun. For you, life is all about getting from point A to point B, and you won’t let anything get in your way.
What Can Lip Shapes Say About Your Personality?
Your lips can tell you more than just how you’re feeling at any particular moment. Your natural lip shape, size, and definition can suggest deeper psychological tendencies and personality traits.
Lip shapes can reflect the way you approach the world–and they can even offer valuable insight on how you should approach your career, relationships, and personal life.
