My best advice for Dark Eldar blood writing is to paint "tribal-style" runes in Blood For The Blood God with a very small brush. It'd be rather untypical for Dark Eldar to smear it around like Orks and Chaos cultists do.

I like to think of it more as anointing their vehicles, even craftworld kin do something similar when putting on their war masks.

But i really wanted advice on what brush to use and how to make the blood look fresh etc

For Dark Eldar, I would use a layer brush or even the artificer brush. For Chaos, the small standard brush should do.
Blood For The Blood God is a color designed to look fresh even when it's dried. You can paint it on about twice as thick as normal colors to maximize the effect, but don't overdo it. You could easily end up making it look like red slime rather than blood.
