By on January 23, 2014

Have you ever wondered what your lips shape says about you? Whether you have heart or round shaped lips or whether your pout is thin or full, your lips represent certain aspects of your personality. You can tell a lot about a women just by looking at her lips – they’re very telling things! Knowing what your lips mean isn’t enough though – we need to know how to dress our lips so we can look our best. That’s why I’ve created this ultimate guide to tell you what your lips say about you and what colours you should be wearing to make them really stand out.


Bow/Heart Shaped Lips

Bow or heart shaped lips look perhaps the most feminine of all. This classic Cupid’s bow shape practically shouts glamour and beauty. Women with bow or heart shaped lips are fearless, they’re expressive, independent and of course they’re seductive. Celebrities like the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence, Hayden Panettiere and Reese Witherspoon have bow or heart shaped lips and I’m sure you’ll agree that these two beauties are practically dripping with glamour and elegance.

You can make the most out of your bow or heart shaped lips by wearing practically any colour. Bright and bold or sheer and natural – any colour will compliment your lips.


Thin Lips

Women with thin lips such as Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow tend to be quite detail orientated. They’re quite intuitive people with a great sensitivity but because they are generally sweet people they can often come off as being shy and reserved at times.

Light colours will work wonders on these lips, especially pale pinks and beiges. The light tones will help to balance out your face and bring some mystery to your lips. Some thin lips can lack shape but using a light coloured lip pencil can really help your lips gain definition. Another great tip is to try finishing your lips with a layer of clear gloss to make your lips appear plumped up and luscious.


Round Lips

Amanda Seyfried and Drew Barrymore are just two of the gorgeous women out there who sport luscious, full, round lips. They have wonderfully seductive pouts even when they’re not trying and when they smile their lips boast some beautiful curves. Women with these button shaped lips tend to be natural explorers with a flirty, charming personality. They’re adventurous and possibly even a little rebellious.

Women with round lips can pull of virtually any colour of lipstick but for that added sex appeal try coating it with a clear gloss to finish to really enhance your natural pout. Don’t be afraid to use a bit of lip liner either – this will really help to make your lips stand out.


Wide Lips

Besides her fabulous acting career, Julia Roberts is known for her wide lips and beaming smile. It’s no wonder however as wide lips symbolise a successful and talented person, if perhaps a slight perfectionist. These women have a wide circle of friends and will take interest in near enough anything. They’re very adaptable making them easy to get on with.

While natural colours tend to look best on wide lips, it’s possible to create a dramatic evening look using bright, bold colours too. The key to using bold colours on wide lips is to be sure to line them correctly, go right to the corner of your mouth so your lips are really defined.


Full & Curvy Lips

There are few things sexier or more seductive than a gorgeous pair of full lips. Celebrities like Scarlett Johanson and Angelina Jolie are living proof of this. Their voluptuous, curvy lips truly define their face, giving them a flawless natural pout. Full and curvy lips show that a woman is extremely self assured and filled with courage.

If you’ve got naturally full lips then you already have what so many of us are wishing for. This means you don’t have to overdo it with makeup. Your lips already look gorgeous so sticking with light colours to really show off your natural look will work wonders. You don’t even need to apply colour, just a layer of lip balm to keep your lips moisturised will keep you looking fab.


Downward-Turned Lips

Renee Zelweiger and Natalie Portman have downward turned lips and both actresses look absolutely stunning. Their lips show they are secretive, they’re quite private and also mysterious. This mysterious side to them also makes them seem quite exotic too. Women with downward turned lips tend to be quite smart and extremely quick witted but on the downside they’re often quite picky making them hard people to please.

Natural and sheer colours will look best on downturned lips. They make the wearer seem more approachable while making the most out of this beautiful lip shape.
