11 Things Your Lips Say About You
Your lip print is more useful than leaving behind a sexy stain on your Starbucks cup or leaving a this-is-so-embarrassing mark on your nephew's cute chubby cheeks. In fact, they actually reveal a ton about your personality. And since we're as curious as a smelly cat (Friends reference—anyone?), we tapped lipsologist Ariana/Anna Snodgrass, a Jilly Eddy-certified lipsologist, to find out just how much our lips are really saying.
So go and layer on your favorite shade (for ultrasoft lips, we're obsessed with GLAMGLOWs new Lip Duo—a fizzy lip treatment for exfoliation, and lip balm for tons of moisture), grab a piece of paper and pucker up. Then take a look at the list below to find out what your kisser says.
First there's your shape to consider...
Open in the Center, But Closed on the Sides:
You're open to new experiences and love to find random of-the-moment adventures. If you notice your print isreallyopen—more than1.5 inches tall and 2.25 inches wide, if we're getting technical—consider yourself the life of the party that everyone wants to be around.
You're easily bored and need to keep busy in order to feel satisfied. You may enjoy bouncing from task to task, rather than finishing one thing before moving on to the next, because it keeps your brain stimulated and moving in all different directions.
Square or Rectangle:
More than anything, you really love to nurture others (hello, mom of the year!). Which makes sense, since everyone likes to turn to you when working out a big problem. People tend to gravitate toward you because you're grounded and often considered reliable—nobody can accuse you of blowing off an important event...or even ditching your weekly workout with the girls.
Oval or Round:
You're a diplomat or peacekeeper (not the ones inHunger Games, mind you), and try to avoid conflict at all cost. Some might say you're a bit of a push-over, but we say you're just really good at seeing things from everyone's point of view before making a decision. You're a pro at diffusing tense situations, and likely find time in your day to meditate, as you know how beneficial it can be.
If you've ever doubted your ability to lead a team, well, stop that right now. You're really good at recognizing talent in others, and can foster that talent to create a productive, nurturing work environment. Take a closer look at your upper lip, too—if it's fuller than the bottom, you're also a great listener. More fullness on the bottom means you tend to be very generous and give back to the community.
Your lip print doesn't fit into one particular shape, which speaks volumes about your creativity. You love to think outside the box, and aren't afraid to try something crazy on the off-chance it just might succeed.
And then size (yep, it really does matter)...
If your print is small (1-1.75" wide, .75-1.06" high):
You're a very detail-oriented woman, and pay close attention to deadlines. You thrive on projects that require a close watch on budget (you may or may not secretly jump for joy when you come under it), and are careful when making any big-time decisions.
If your print is medium-sized (1.75-2.25" wide, .875-1.75" high):
Hey there, busy lady! You love having a million balls to juggle, and are a pro at keeping each one in the air. Multitasking might as well be your middle name, so you may feel a little lost when there aren't a lot of things to tackle on your to-do list.
If your print is large (2.25-3" wide, 1.5-3" high):
Go big or go home is your life motto. If you can't do it right the first time, you don't want to do it at all. Throwing big events or taking the lead on a noteworthy project at work excites you, as you like to give the proper care and attention large-scale commitments require.
If your top lip is fuller than the bottom:
You're a great listener, but don't have time for long-winded rants or explanations—you'd rather just get to the point and find a solution quickly. And if you notice fine, white lines appearing on your upper lip and trickling down vertically, then take note—those are called spirit lines, and they signal a strong spiritual side or a feeling of personal connection to something "bigger" than yourself.
If your bottom lip is fuller than the top:
Generosity is your middle name, and it's not just about financially giving for you—sharing your ideas, thoughts, skills, and resources is just as important.Oh, and pay attention to those little white lines you took note of before—they can also signal stress. If they trickle horizontally (rather than vertically) from the center of the lower lip and travel outward, then you're likely dealing with a lot of stress (same goes for a dark outline around your lips. If you see it, you're overwhelmed and need to slow down before taking on more work).
The good news is that it's stress you can control, so sit back and evaluate the best steps you can take toward finding a solution. If those same horizontal lines are appearing on your upper lip though, take a deep breath. That's stress you don't have a lot of control over, so there may be something happening that you need to work on worrying about less.
