Craving Cara Delevingne-like brows? Benefit's head make-up artist and brow expert, Lisa Potter-Dixon, shares her top tips Which is best: plucking, waxing or threading? It REALLY is personal preference. I prefer waxing and tweezing as it's more precise. Threading can be amazing if you get the right person, but it's so quick and taking one wrong hair can ruin your whole brow shape! At Benefit, we wax to remove the hair and tweeze to shape.

What are the best ways to encourage growth if you've plucked them too much? FIRST things first, leave them alone for at least a few months. Use a brow conditioning primer morning and night to encourage healthier, fuller looking brows.

If you want great brows, you need to look after them. Also, get them tinted. Even if you have very little hair, this will make your brows look thicker and fuller in a couple of minutes.

What are the most flattering brow shapes? WE all have different shaped faces and the best way to get the perfect brows for you is to map them.

All you need is a make-up brush and a brow powder to mark the points, and fill in the brows.

There are three stages to mapping your brows correctly. 1. Look straight ahead into a mirror. Hold a make-up brush at the dimple of your nose straight up to your brow. Mark with a line.

Starting here will give a slimming effect to your nose and balance your eyes.

2. Hold the brush from the edge of your nose through the pupil of your eye to find the arch point. This will give you an instant eye lift.

3. Hold the brush from the edge of your nose through the outer corner of the eye to the brow. Ending here will give you an eye-opening effect.

Once you've got the perfect shape, you can style them however you want.
