Lisa Potter Dixon, author of two best-selling books; and , is the Queen of on-fleek eyebrows. She's the Head Make-up and Brow Expert for Benefit, so if anyone has the advice you need, it's Lisa. Right now Lisa and the Benefit gang are up and down the country on the BrowMobile Tour to teach the public about how to get the perfect eyebrows. Scroll down to find out the five questions they've been asked the most...
Q What should I do if I've over-plucked my brows?
“Plucking your brows can be addictive! And taking just one wrong hair can ruin a perfectly good brow. So my advice would be to leave it to the experts! Getting your brows waxed & tinted will make such a difference to the way your brows look. I mean, you wouldn't cut your own hair would you?! Top tip-if you want to encourage hair growth, try putting an eyebrow primer into your skincare routine. Choose one that is jam packed with soy protein & keratin, like benefit's Brow-VP conditioning primer. These 2 ingredients are known for giving you healthier, fuller looking hair. “
Q What colour eyebrow tint should I choose?
“When picking the shade of your brow product, look at your eyebrow hair and not the hair on your head as, let's be honest, who knows they're natural hair colour these days?! Matching the product to your brows will give you the best finish.”

Q My eyebrows are sparse, what should I do?
“Sparse brows are super common. We tend to lose our brow hair with age, and 50% of the women whose brows I've waxed, have a hole in them from a childhood scar. (It seems a lot of us went over our bike handlebars at some point)! But have no fear, this is what fibre gels are for. These beauties mimic the appearance of real hair, giving you your brows back in seconds. My absolute fave, and, as it turns out, the Nations number 1 fave brow product, is Benefit's . The wand is tiny so you can brush away from the hair, and then back with the hair without making a mess. This technique also makes the most of the product as it costs the entire hair.No one will ever know about that secret scar! “

Q How do you get the right shape eyebrows?
“Getting the right brow shape for you can be tough. At Benefit, we map the brows to get the perfect shape for you. To do this at home, take a make- up brush and hold it from the corner of the nose straight up, this is where your brow should start. If it starts in the right place your nose will look slimmer. For the arch, go from the corner of the nose through the centre of the eye. Placing the arch in the right place gives you an instant eye lift. For the end of the brow, hold the brush from the corner of the nose to the end of the eye. Ending them in the right place lifts the cheek bones. Use product to fill in the shape and just remember to keep the front section natural for the perfect finish.”
Q I'm afraid of waxing, what should I do?
“Don't be afraid, it's quick & pretty pain free. A brow wax usually takes a max of 15 minutes, and only a couple of minutes of that is the actual waxing. It's NOTHING compared to a bikini wax that's for sure.”
