Avoid all the crap in boots/Superdrug. Go straight to Refectocil professional tints. You mix them with an oxidant developer and they work. There are different shades depending on what you want. I use the blue black. I buy off amazon
I definitely wouldn’t get natural brown for lashes. I’d suggest a darker colour, particularly since you use black mascara anyway. You really won’t notice the natural brown on your lashes. I’m blonde but still go for blue/black with an eyelash tint. I wouldn’t and don’t dye my eyebrows the same I hasten to add
If you get any excess dye on your skin it can be removed with glycolic acid (like the nip & fab pads). Obviously don’t use those on eyelids though. Best for dye stains around brows. It won’t remove the dye from the hairs but will take the stains off the skin.
It came early yesterday I had a quick go this morning Loads easier than i thought to apply. I got brown for brows and black for lashes When applying brows they didnt look very dark so i added a bit of black - they are too dark now but not horrible. Lashes think i need to do another coat but still happy. Thanks everyone I love this stuff
