The mouth is related to communication, speech and the sensual appetites like eating and sex. The lips relate to our ability to nurture others in loving relationships. If the upper lip is considerably thinner than the lower lip, it reveals an inability to reciprocate in relationships. Conversely, a thinner lower lip indicates an overly giving nature.
Lips which are full, round and even convey to you that the person is caring and sensitive. The upper and lower lips in equal distribution reveal a well meaning and communicative personality.
If the lips are large it means an expensive and somewhat luxurious taste - but an expressive and generous temperament nonetheless. Often the large mouthed person can be very vocal under pressure, needing to verbalise, sometimes excessively, their dissatisfaction and frustration.
Small lips which are also tightly pursed warn of a self centred and mean character. The downward curvature of the lips is an marking pointing to discontent in most matters. You may find it hard to please these types irrespective of what you do or say. Look for upward curved lips which indicate the opposite - someone cordial and optimistic with a sunny disposition. Ex Prime Minister Bob Hawke exhibited the thin downward turned lips.
Narrow lips reveal an unemotional character who lives more or less an internalised life, never able to enjoy the pleasure of sharing deeper feelings.
