For centuries, artists have used the Divine Proportion to create harmony and balance For lips, this translates into a guideline that the upper lip should be about 40% of the total height of the lips and the bottom lip should be about 60 %. From one side to the other, the lips should be symmetrical with the fullness in the center tapering off toward the corners. This creates an attractive “Cupid’s Bow”, serving as the focal point of the upper lip. When viewed from the side, the upper lip should project slightly beyond the lower lip and a line drawn upward from the corners of the lips should hit the center of the pupils of the eyes.
