Researchers Explain What The Shape of Your Lips Say About You
The eyes may be where others are focusing their gaze, but they may also be watching the movement and shape of your lips and subconsciously thinking what your lips say about you.
Lips are, if you ask me, underrated as an important feature of our face. Eyes get all the undue attention when all they do is see. Through lips, we eat, smile and kiss. Lips have their prints as unique as fingerprints.
Have you ever wondered what your lips may reveal about your personality? The upper and lower ridges, the right and left corners, the upper lip point and chin points and their relative positions have a lot to say about a person. The two lip corners and their relative positions to the middle of the lips are used as landmarks to measure the significant lip features such as the upper and lower lip points and their symmetry right to left.

WHAT THE SHAPE OF YOUR UPPER LIP POINTS SAY ABOUT YOU
Philium is the name of the shapely ‘V’ or ‘U’ of the upper lip center directly below the nose, usually a channel from the nose to the center of the upper lip where a defined ridge shape can be seen. The philium is either pointed, like the shape of a letter V, rounded, like the shape of a letter U, or nonexistent.
The philium is the predominant lip shape feature that is often highlighted or outlined by lip makeup. The upper lip points or philium have ten distinct shapes.
The lip shape is defined by the lower and upper vermillion border of the lips. The vermillion border is the borderline separating the skin of the face below the nose and the vermillion zone of the upper lip. The shape of the upper vermillion lip border was found to have distinctive types, which are:
1. Twin peaks (V shape) – Creative
2. Uneven peaks – Sensitive
3. Cantilever bridge (flat line between peaks) – Inquisitive
4. Suspension bridge (U shape) – Outgoing
5. Double convex (two rounded peaks) – Flirtatious
6. Butterfly (softer V peaks)- Kind
7. Dome (single curve) – Outspoken
8. Flying bird (outer edge of peak tapers to corner) – Nurturing
9. Flat (no points) – Logical
