- Harley Street’s Dr Tijion Esho has come up with the must-have look for 2017
- Says the perfect lips are thinner at the top and ‘dipped low’ in the middle
- Look is exemplified by stars including Angelina Jolie and Michelle Keegan
Women have long sought the secret to a perfect pout whether through lipstick, gloss or even more extreme options like fillers.
Now, one doctor claims to have devised the ultimate for the perfect lips – and it’s good news if you have a natural Cupid’s bow.
Dr Tijion Esho claims the must-have look in 2017 comprises a thicker bottom lip, with the top lip ‘dipped low’ in the middle, with stars like Angelina Jolie serving as the perfect example.
Women are flocking to book themselves in for the so-called ‘three-point lip’, Dr Esho claims, which is described as ‘the essence of the modern lip; full, desirable, and yet still natural in appearance’.
The new ratio: Dr Esho claims the must-have look in 2017 comprises a thicker bottom lip, with the top lip ‘dipped low’ in the middle – and stars like Angelina Jolie are the perfect example
‘Particular attention to detail is made to the central segment of the lower lip and Cupid’s bow,’ Dr Esho, who gets a staggering 150 consultation requests for lip augmentation every week, told FEMAIL.
His findings follow on from a recent study by the University of California which claimed that lips with a ratio 1:2 of upper to lower lip (a smaller top lip and a bigger bottom lip) are the most attractive.
Dr Esho, who is based at London’s Harley Street, says that while the 1:2 ratio is important, the perfect lip will also have a 1:1 ratio in the outer corners of the top and bottom lip – plus an accentuated philtrum, or Cupid’s bow.
He has identified the demand for the ‘three-point lip’ in his clinic, based on what women deem the most desirable yet ‘natural’ look – and it’s a far cry from Kylie Jenner’s plump pout.

Secret to the three-point lip
. 1:1 ratio between the top lip and the outer thirds of the bottom lip
. Central segment of the lower lip is 1.2 vs the top lip (therefore thicker in the midde)
. An accentuated Cupid’s bow
The perfect example of the this he says, can be seen on stars including Angelina, Michelle Keegan and Emily Ratajowski.
‘With lip augmentation, the aim every time is to maintain a natural appearance,’ he explained. ‘However, over time, the perception of “natural” has changed and evolved.’
So how can the Cupid’s bow be replicated for those who aren’t naturally endowed?
‘This is achieved by using my nano droplet technique where small amounts of filler are administered during lip augmentation to life and define,’ Dr Esho explains.
Angelina’s lips, left, with their natural Cupid’s bow, are the perfect example of the Esho Ratio – with the new formula based on what women deem the most desirable yet ‘natural’ look. Despite Kylie Jenner’s pout garnering a lot of attention on social media, right, she didn’t feature on the list
He also offers the Cupid’s Bow Lift, where microscopic threads are passed through the philtrum to give the patient a natural resting pout.
Commenting on what could be fuelling the trend, he added: ‘Over the last three years the demand for lip fillers has continued to grow.
‘Celebrity culture fuelled by social media has had a big role to play in a generation of women who are now more visually aware than ever before.’
