Would You Wear Ultra Smoky Eyes Like Avril?

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?

Way to dark for her, she looks like a raccoon. She should stick with a more natural look.

just because so people can’t pull it off don’t dog those who can. i wear it and pull it off with style and class. I don’t use that much or go that dark ,but if I was a famous rock star I totally would. I love it!!ROCK ON AVRIL!!!!!!

Whoa…way too much smoke for my eyes!…I like to keep my make-up natural, but still applied…this is a bit much…

If the occasion was right. I wouldn’t wear it to work or bowling. But for a night out on the town or a fancier party, I would totally rock this with the right outfit.

Lorena Pìmentel on

Absolutely. The smoky effect causes an impact drawing attention to our face and eyes, even if its color is not blue or green.
It’s the perfect make-up to rock the night away!

I’d never do anything that Avril does. I hate her

Anon on

That look might work better on someone/something with dark hair or fur…

Suzanne S on

I think she can pull it off, but not a lot of girls can. Kudos to her! If I tried it, I would look like I got into the boxing ring!

HLS on

I would absolutely not wear this thick, dark eye makeup. It totally overwhelms Avril’s delicate features and makes her look like a freak. She can have a punk rocker chick image without making herself look like someone punched her eyes out.
