The smoky eye is a perennial beauty favorite. Not only is it sexy, but it’s actually wearable for pretty much everybody. But all good things in moderation, right? Avril Lavigne embodies her punk-y persona (and possibly Rocky Raccoon) by taking the look to extremes with super thick eyeliner and black lids. Is it still so wearable? We want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear this ultra smoky eye?

it is an old look from ancient
popularized by

Chrissie Hynde
look of 60’s dolly birds
nothing new
the totally black eyelid is ugly
but the eyeliner
makes just about any woman attractive
also photo shop is involved ?
her eyes are a very pretty color

I think her features are great. Model material. But, come on!!!! Black eyeshadow/liner OVERKILL!!! She’s obviously a pretty girl, but downplays it. Hopefully she’ll grow out of it and love all the clothes, accessories, and make-up like the rest of us. She surely can afford it. If I had her money I’d enjoy it too on goodies.


Can any one say Adams Family extra.

It’s just fashion people!!!
Avril made the punk look popular 4-5 years ago and she is still rocking it cause she don’t give a s$#% about what people think. She is one of the only young people who hasn’t lost sight of herself. She is a statement – an excellent role model for proving that ‘fitting in’ isn’t always the ‘cool’ thing to do!

Amber on

that is soooooo ugly!!!!
