I notice large lips, never positively. Nobody likes very thin lips. I wasn't consciously noticing whether a Cupid's bow is present, but having read up for this subject, the lack of one ruins lips for me (picture an oval or straight line). I can think someone's lips are slightly unattractive but still like that person's face.

The correct term is excessive gingival display. I think most people who have those are probably a little self conscious too.

I think fuller lips on women look better. I know a lot of people don't like lip filler, but I've gotten mine done several times in the last year and a half and love the way they look. They don't look overdone at all and really go with my face shape. If you go to someone who knows what they're doing and don't overdo the filler, it can look really good.

And negative on fillers.
I notice if the proportions are not right, too thin or too thick.

Also for men, I think a big or even crooked nose makes a man look more masculine.

Unlike Mick Jagger, John Cleese always had thin lips.

I love a long, elegant nose on a man. Very aristocratic

That is 'gummy smile' where you see too much of the gums. A horsey smile is like Carol Burnett's teeth. Protruding. Interestingly, Carol has gotten lip filler as she's aged and her lips look as full as when she was young.

In some cases a gummy smile is cheaply and easily corrected by Botox in the muscles below the nose which causes the lip to relax and lower. I'd be sure to find a doc who knows what to do because you want to be able to talk afterwards!

I had a "gummy smile" because people would insist you have to smile really big in your photographs so I did, but it didn't look good. I look better when I smile slightly.

It’s just lip filler....but....IMO it is sad to hear other women don’t like parts of their bodies & need to change them. It starts with lips....& then? I know I’m not perfect....but I love myself & my body......& I wouldn’t surgically change with any procedure. I stay fit & dress fashionably to accentuate the best parts......& I apply makeup in different ways to enhance what I have. There are a couple of really good cosmetic lip products to use....like Too Faced....AND lots can be done with a lip liner too!!! Love yourself 1st IMO.....& you will love your lips too.....

Using your line of reasoning, women who dye their hair a different color must hate themselves. Maybe they are brazen hussies like my granny believed.

Whatever others want to do to their bodies doesn't affect my body so I don't worry about it. This extends to food nazis who want to control what others put into their own bellies.
