StyleSpeak brings to you the trending lip shapes and treatments of 2023
Lips are one of the most important features of a women’s face. Having prominent, plump, and moisturised lips is considered attractive. Nobody likes to have dull, chapped and thin lips anymore. Getting lip interventions e.g., surgeries to correct these flaws has become quite common in 2023.
Lip treatments, lip makeup and lip care are more popular now than ever! Looking at the latest lip shapesand found these to be the most desired shapes in 2023:
- Proportionate Lips
According to a 2022 studyin the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 1:1.6 (upper lip to lower lip) ratio is considered as the most attractive lip shape. To make the lips proportionate, derma fillers like hyaluronic acid and polyacrylamidecan be injected into the lips.
- Natural & Defined lips
Recent trends show that everyone wants to have just an accentuated, more defined version of their natural lip shapes. A glossy finish is also given to the lips by usinghyaluronic acid base fillers.
- Cupid Lips
These lips form a ‘M’ shape from two distinctive points to the centre of the top lip.These lips can be easily created using makeup or by getting a lip lift.
Along with these popular lip shapes, modern lip treatments that help to create those lips and also give more texture, colour to the lips have gained popularity.
Trending lip treatments:
- Lip Tenting
This treatment gives a more natural looking lip enhancement rather than puffing the lips. Lip tenting is done by vertically injecting the derma fillers from the lip edges instead of injecting it horizontally like normal lip fillers. This allows Lip tenting to have better control over the volume that is being supplied and the overall shape of the lips. This treatment also helps in having defined cupid bows by defining the borders of the lips.
- Lip Flip with Botox
This treatment changes the shape of the lips rather than their volume. Lip Flips don’t require dermal fillers and hence are much more convenient as they don’t cause pain or puffiness. In a lip flip treatment, Botox is injected into the philtrum muscle which is situated above the top lip. The neurotoxin (Botox) relaxes the muscles and prevents lip from falling down. This causes the lip to flip upwards that makes the upper lip appear bigger. Lip Flips provide the lips with a much more subtle fullness.
- Lip Blushing
This is a semi-permanent makeup tattoo that makes use of a cosmetic tattoo gunand water-based inks to tint the lips. This treatment gives results similar to that of lip fillers but they don’t actually change the shape or feel of the lips. Lip Blushing gives the lips an enhanced, defined appearance by providing them with a soft, shaded-in colour. This procedure also covers up scars and pigmentation while delivering the illusion of fuller lips.
- Cherry Lips Treatment
Cherry lips Treatment is the latest lip filler procedure in Korea that enhances the structure and volume of the lips while maintain its natural feel. Instead of giving the lips an overall plump, this treatment focuses on plumping just the middle region of the lips.Hyaluronic acid fillers are only injected into two areas in the central region of the top lip as well as the bottom lip. This looks like two pairs of cherries hanging horizontally on the top as well as the bottom lips with their stems facing the corners of the lips. Hence the name.
- Gym Lips
The makeup artist Kelli Anne Sewell started the ‘Gym Lips’ trend on tiktok that helps to enhance the lips with natural looking makeup rather than fillers. A lip liner in a shade similar to that of the lips is used to over-line them while a similar shade of balm or gloss is added to the central part of the lips.
After getting lip treatments, taking care of them, and maintaining them is very important.
