Stylistic design of lips and facial make-up in physiognomy.
Cosmeticians and visual artists can consider information on physiognomy of lips for cosmetic facial make-up and stylistic design of female faces. And also the information on physiognomy of lips and chin can be important for doctors of cosmetic medicine and plastic surgery in view of modeling shapes and proportions in faces of people before plastic operations and cosmetic procedures.
Lateral and frontal facial perspectives in profile and full-face on horizontal axes of coordinates, and also vertical measurements of lips and chin in view of physiognomy form datum lines of sensual displays of human personality, as well as other features of a human face form geometrical coordinates of human personality within three physiognomic spheres. Namely potential and kinetic psychological traits of human feelings are projected in geometrical shapes of lips and chin, and form axes of coordinates or datum lines which can be systematized by means of symbols of the canon of changes i-jing, that is shown in the table.
Top lines in trigrams of the canon i-jing in the table correspond to upper lip.
Middle lines correspond to shapes of lower lip. Bottom lines symbolize outlines
of a chin.
Bottom row of physiognomic drawings corresponds to the sizes of lips and chin according to frontal facial perspectives in full-face concerning horizontal axis of measurements. Namely entire lines in Ba Gua mean wide shapes of lips and chin, and break lines mean narrow sizes of these facial features. For example, the seventh Ba Gua corresponds with physiognomic drawing where the chin is narrow and the upper lip is wider than lower lip.
Middle row of physiognomic drawings corresponds to the sizes of lips and chin according to lateral facial perspectives in profile concerning horizontal axis of measurements. Entire lines in Ba Gua mean the expressed shapes of lips and chin, and break lines mean not expressed formal sizes. For example the second Ba Gua shows the drawing where the chin and lower lip are expressed, and shapes of upper lip are not expressed.
Top row of physiognomic drawings corresponds to the sizes of lips and chin according to vertical axis of facial measurements. Entire lines in Ba Gua mean long vertical sizes, and break lines designate short vertical sizes of facial traits. For example, the sixth Ba Gua corresponds to the drawing where vertical size of the chin is short, and shapes of lower lip are more than upper lip.
According to the shown physiognomic drawings it is possible to analyze ratios of potential and kinetic psychological features of human personality in facial sphere of feelings.
For example, the sizes of lips and chin on the human face in view of physiognomy correspond to the sixth trigram in full-face and to the seventh trigram in profile according to horizontal facial measurements, and also correspond with the first Ba Gua of i-jing according to vertical axis of measurements, that is possible to designate F6 L7 V1 by letters and symbols.
Ratios of psychological features of personality in this case are the following.
Upper lip - regulated feelings.
The insignificant sensual potential is insufficient for realization of intensive kinetic sensual displays, but according to significant vertical sizes of upper lip there is an impression that sensual aspirations of the person are realized. As in 6th Ba Gua on top position there is the break line, and in 7th and 1st trigrams on top positions there are entire lines, that corresponds to the upper lip which is narrow in full-face and expressed in profile, and is big according to vertical facial measurements.
Lower lip - compromise feelings.
Significant potential sensuality cannot be realized by insignificant kinetic intensity of sensual displays, but according to the big vertical size of lower lip it seems that the person feels own sensual potencies as realized, namely impracticable kinetic aspirations of sensuality are not perceived as unsatisfactory. As in 6th trigram on middle position there is the entire line, and in 7th trigram there is the break line, but in 1st Ba Gua there is the entire line, that corresponds to shapes of upper lip which is wide in full-face and not expressed in profile according to horizontal facial coordinates, but is long on vertical coordinate.
Chin - reactionary feelings.
Insignificant sensual potencies are not contrast for insignificant kinetic possibilities for realization of sensual aspirations, but according to long vertical sizes there is an impression that potencies of human feelings are realized. As in 6th and 7th trigrams on bottom positions there are break lines, and in 1st Ba Gua of i-jing there is the entire line, that corresponds to geometrical measurements of the chin which is narrow in full-face and not expressed in half-face according to horizontal coordinates of facial shapes, but has long size according to vertical axis.
The information about psychological meanings of three facial levels of feelings in a context of physiognomy look on pages of this website in section with the name: half-faces (concepts).
In a similar way geometrical shapes or otherwise to tell physiognomic coordinates of lips and chin allow to speak about ratios of potential and kinetic features of human feelings, or otherwise to tell psychical traits of empirical perception of world phenomena.
In total according to geometrical measurements of a face in a context of physiognomy it is possible to consider ratios of empirical and mental perception of the world according to facial shapes in spheres of feelings and consciousnesses with features of existential perception according to facial traits in sphere of individuality. Namely it is possible to consider complex combinations of psychological features of personality according to complex ratios of geometrical shapes and sizes of a face at different physiognomic levels. And accordingly it is possible to use complex figures of symbols of the canon i-jing which in total can be multilevel and multivariate combinations of trigrams, and also hexagrams and nonagrams.
Such methods of consideration of a human face can be used not only in physiognomy or psychology, but also in cosmetic medicine and plastic surgery. Namely doctors cosmeticians and plastic surgeons can measure not only formal sizes and proportions of faces, but also can consider ratios of facial shapes in view of psychological meanings which correspond to facial features, that can matter before plastic operations and cosmetic procedures.
Or make-up stylists and art designers of female faces can consider psychological meanings which correspond with different sizes of facial shapes, that can be important in view of a cosmetic make-up and stylistic design in beauty shops or consulting rooms of cosmeticians. Namely can be important for correct facial make-up.
