Lip charts can help to determine your lip shape, and as a result, can help you discover new and flattering ways to apply lip products that show off your pout. Ahead, find out more about lip charts, plus how to read one in order to flaunt your natural lip shape. 


What Is a Lip Chart? 

Like a fingerprint, lips are totally unique and vary from person to person. A lip chart is a helpful visual tool that outlines some of the different types of lip shapes and can range from thin to round to heart shaped and heavy upper or lower lips. 


Why Should I Use a Lip Chart? 

While you don’t need to use a lip chart in order to put together a dramatic lip look, the visual representation of your lips can help you get a better understanding of your lip shape and inspire you to change up your look or make your lips stand out. 

What to Do After Using a Lip Chart

Once you’ve narrowed down your lip shape, you might be wondering what you should do with your newfound knowledge. The short answer is whatever you like! Explore purple lipstick if you want, indulge in a vampy black lipstick or a berry shade. 


If you’d prefer to stick to a tried-and-true lip color, such as red, grab the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Reds of Worth in Successful Red and L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lip Liner and have pride in your pout.
