Lily Collins amused by eyebrow hype

Lily Collins learned to love her eyebrows thanks to her mother.

The 24-year-old actress is a poster girl for fresh faced natural beauty.

Lily is having fun with her hair and make-up, and shared the sources of inspiration behind some of her striking looks.

"I’m 24 and I can have more fun," Lily told "I love changing my look so much. My mom always taught me that the quirky things that make you different make you beautiful. I always saw her as beautiful because she allows herself to be her age. Because of her I embrace my eyebrows; I never thought they were a big deal—now they have their own Twitter account!"

Lily named Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn as her style icon from the past. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star loves her timeless look.

“Classic. One of Audrey's most recognisable features are her striking brows—obviously something I notice! I love how they define and add such expression to her face. She was the epitome of a natural beauty—and proves you always have to take care of your skin!" she exclaimed.

Lily's modern day beauty muses include Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway and Rooney Mara. She says she admires these actresses for twisting the idea of traditional glamour.

"Anne can look so ultra-glamorous and yet can do grunge and pretty/dirty so well. I loved when she darkened up her look for Rachel Getting Married and then chopped her hair for Les Misérables. It proves you can do glamour in different ways," she gushed.

“I loved how Rooney started experimenting with minimal eye make-up and a bold lip on her The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo press tour. It was amazing to see her transformation; she kept her edge, but also made it chic and sophisticated. I think the balance between bold and subtle makeup from look to look was gorgeous and extremely edgy too, reminiscent of old Hollywood."
