Been doing my own eyelashes and eyebrows for 25 years now. Like a pp upthread I used to use an old mascara brush other than the stick think that comes in the pack. However the last pack I bought (whichever is available at the chemist) had a mascara type brush with it.
Handy tip, whilst you're doing it keep a damp cotton wool bud and piece of cotton wool at the ready to immediately wipe away any dye that gets into your eye or on your skin.
I can't believe how much beauticians charge for it. One pack lasts me about a year and I do mine every 2 weeks or so.
another one here for Refectocil. I bought a kit from Amazon for about £12. I'm blonde and use blue/black on my eyelashes, never do my brows. A great tip I was given is to use an eyeliner brush to paint vasalene on the skin around your eyes to prevent the dye colouring your skin.
DO NOT USE HAIR DYE! You could blind yourself. Get the refectocil. I do my own eyebrows but not sure how you could do your lashes as you need to keep your eyes closed. I can only close my right eye independently of my left eye, not the other way round (weird, huh?) so couldn't do my right eyelashes.
