I'm kind of late on this but Sally Beauty Supply sells a eyelash/eyebrow tinting kit from Roux brand. It's around 40.00 but it has over 40 applications in there and it's completely safe.

Well, I don't know what color you're looking for, but I use Wet n Wild, in universal taupe. It's easy to apply with no red or green undertones. Oh, and did I say it's cheap?

Although the package says NOT to do so, I have been using regular hair dye on my eyebrows for about 20 years with no ill effects. When I was coloring my hair, I did my eyebrows at the same time using the same color, but now that I have stopped coloring my hair and am letting the silver take over, I still buy hair color one shade darker than my natural hair color, mix as usual, and apply to my eyebrows with a Q-Tip. It never runs and lasts about four weeks. It costs half as much as having it professionally done, and looks just as good. (I would never try doing this on eyelashes though!!!)

Has anyone ever had any bad experiences doing this?

I get my brows microbladed. It's not for everyone but I love it. I do touch them up daily with Kabrow or brown shadow.

I've got one of those little 'brow kits', and they are great. On one side there's a coloured wax, and on the other side there's a coloured powder. You can use just one of them, or both of them together.

They come with tiny little brushes - one for the wax, and one for the powder. The application looks really natural, as the brushes (especially the wax brush) make tiny hair-like lines across the brows. They are good for people like me, who have sparse brows, but do not want to fill them in with harsh looking pencil lines.

I usually find that the wax works well enough on its own, but you can also go over the wax with the powder, to set them. The powder is good on its own too. What brows that I do have, are dark, and I initially bought the darkest brow kit. However, it looked a bit too dark against my pale skin, so I've now bought a dark brown version (which still looks dark enough) that I prefer.

I love love love the Revlon brow pencil ... the best 'taupe' of any; goes on soft, looks natural. Has a little brush and a sharpener. $9 at CVS; better if you have a coupon.

I do my eyebrows with the same hair color I use at home as well. I have also been doing this for 20+ years and it works great and I have never had a problem. You just have to use common sense and not get it in, or let it drip into, your eyes. I apply it to my eyebrows with a Q-tip as well, approximately half way into my hair coloring time.
