Lily Collins is hot on Cara Delevingne's heels for the title of 'queen of strong brows'!

We couldn't help but admire the Mirror Mirror star's bold look as she stopped by the Good Morning America TV studios earlier today (7 August).

Eyebrows are mega-important as they give structure to the face, and this season big is definitely best!

But if you're not blessed in the brow department, there are oodles of products to help you fake it.

1. Pluck

The first step in any brow routine is a quick tidy up! One of the biggest beauty disasters is over-plucking, so make sure you follow your natural shape and only pluck stray hairs (Tweezerman Slant Tweezers, £21.50, are a cult favourite).

If in doubt, get it done professionally - threading is a great way to groom your brows.

2. Shade

With so many eyebrow solutions on the market, it can be hard to find your perfect brow companion.

For a super-defined look, try using a pencil (we love Rimmel Professional Eye Brow Pencil, £2.99, and NARS Brow Perfector, £16.50). Apply using short, feathery strokes, then comb through with an eyebrow brush to evenly distribute the product.

For added longevity, go for an eyebrow felt tip (such as W7 Just Brows Waterproof Brow Pen, £1.95). Start light-handed and gradually build up your product so you don't go OTT.

Alternatively keep things lighter with an eyebrow powder - HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette, £19.96, has a great range of colours, plus it's loved by the A-list. Invest in an angled brush (such as MAC 266 Small Angle Brush, £16.50) to apply.

Low-maintenance girls should try an eyebrow gel (like NARS Brow Gel, £16.50). You won't be able to alter your shape with a gel, but you can add some colour. It's also a great way to keep unruly brows in place!

3. Highlight

Stop there, or make your newfound brows stand out even more by running a pale pink pencil, such as Soap & Glory Arch De Triumph Eyebrow Shaper & Highlighter, £8, along your brow bone, just under the bottom of your eyebrow.

Blend with your fingers and get set to admire your brand new look!
