Help me bleach my black, coarse, glossy facial (and head) hair!

So I tried to bleach my eyebrows- wanting to lighten them but not completely bleach them- with a peroxide and baking soda mixture. I left it on for about 20 minutes, at which point I could no longer bear the pain. I cleaned it off to discover that, though I had successfully burned my delicate facial skin, my hair was no lighter. Now I have dark coarse glossy black eyebrows with embarassing scabs underneath. What did I do wrong? Do you have any peroxide bleach tips? (Extra points if the advice can also apply to head hair).
Please don't tell me to have it professionally done, I can't afford it. Not even at a beauty college, not even with groupon, I just can't afford it.
