Pouting: ‘pushing one’s lips or one’s bottom lip forward as an expression of petulant annoyance.’ Babies do this very well, as do many women to add an air of sex appeal to their overall look.

According to a study conducted by Manchester University in 2010, a woman’s lips are the most attractive part of her body, especially if she’s wearing red lipstick. Research shows that men are drawn to a woman’s pout more than any other facial feature; therefore, if you want to catch a man’s attention, don’t bother batting your eyelashes or flicking your hair, just pout!

In an era where selfies are the order of the day, women have the opportunity to put their pout on all day, and show it off too… in the front of the mirror, in the car or by the desktop; and this is not just to impress men, but more for the sake of the pout itself. Women love to look gorgeous.
