Why do I have, really thin lips?

Everyone’s anatomy is different, which means that while some people have naturally plump lips, others have thinner lips. If you are wondering “Why do I have, really thin lips? ” the simple answer is your genes.

If your parents have thin lips, you are likely to have them too. Or, if one has plump lips and the other has thin ones, whoever’s DNA is more prominent in your body will determine the thickness of your lips. Today, science has advanced to the point that DNA specialists know which genes decide on your facial features.

If you do have thin lips and you would prefer a fuller look with full lips, there are ways to tackle the problem. Some makeup products temporarily make your lips look fuller. Or, you can try perfecting your contouring techniques to give the illusion that your lips are bigger than they are. Ultimately, though, the best way to obtain lasting results is through using Dermal fillers.

At Rutland Aesthetics, we are here to discuss all of your options. We aim to ensure you obtain the look you want while remaining safe and enjoying cosmetic treatments that are bespoke for your needs.

Lips

UNDERSTANDING WHY YOU HAVE SKINNY LIPS

From your really thin lips to the shape of your cheekbones, your appearance is determined by your genes. From the moment of conception, your parents’ human reproductive cells work together to produce the look you have today.

However, one parent having plump lips while the other has thin ones may not increase your chance of enjoying a fuller pout. As you go through the initial stages of development in the womb, hundreds of genes will contribute towards each feature. It is for this reason that a baby born to parents who both have brown eyes may have green ones instead.

In other words, it is difficult for scientists to determine how you will look. And, even if they could do so, they would not be able to reverse the process. Once your parents’ DNA has worked together to produce the image that you will carry through to adulthood, it is the one you are stuck with. If you feel unhappy with having really thin lips, however, there are ways to make them look bigger.

WAYS TO MAKE YOUR LIPS APPEAR BIGGER AT HOME

If you are willing to invest in specific makeup products and add more time to your beauty routine, there are ways to make your lips appear bigger at home. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie don’t just use fillers. One popular approach involves applying some lip gloss to the middle of your bottom and lower lip only. This area will then attract light, making it appear larger.

Lip Plumping Glosses

Multiple beauty brands manufacture lip plumping glosses that aim to make your lips look bigger. Most of these glosses use ingredients that cause a temporary inflammatory reaction. For example, they may include cinnamon, which irritates the lips’ skin, causing them to swell. Usually, the results last for a few hours.

Using Lip Liner

Overdrawing your lip liner so that it reaches just outside your lips and then filling the gaps in with lipstick is an old technique. If you are confident in your makeup skills, it’s one worth trying. However, you do need to ensure you use a lip liner and lipstick that will not smudge easily. You can solidify the results by using a setting spray or powder.

Add A Little Black Dot

Adding a tiny black dot in the middle of the lower vermilion border creates an optical illusion. By darkening the area using a small amount of eyeshadow or eyeliner, it makes the remaining regions of the lower vermilion border look fuller. However, this technique does not address the problem if you have a thin upper vermilion border, as introducing a little black dot to your cupid’s bow may produce an ‘odd’ shape.
