The reason I refer to it as accidental is because it came about from correcting a mistake. I wanted to use my Avon Supershock eyeliner to just create a simple lined eye to wear with the dark lipstick. I struggle to use this eyeliner neatly though and I ended up with really thick, punky lined eyes. I tried to tidy it up with an eyeliner brush. Still no good. I tried to smudge it out. Even worse! So, my only option (other than taking it off of course) was to use eyeshadow to tone it down.
I opted for my Les Gris L'Wren palette as I thought a smoky eye would work well with the liner. I pressed the darker of the two greys on to the mobile lid, over the top of the smudged liner and I softened the outer edges with the lightest shimmery shade from the palette. I was really pleased with how well it softened the stark black of the liner.

My apologies for all of the photographs but I was pleased with how it looked. It was very quick to repeat again today and with a light gloss on the lips, I felt much happier wearing it out in the day.
