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?

Maybe on Halloween… MAYBE.

She looks a little bit like a crack-head…Not very attractive. I like some of her music, but she tries way too hard to convince everyone she’s a hardcore punk rock chick.

Rebecca on

Ultra smoky? Looks more like ultra Sharpie to me. It also looks like she’s having a hard time opening her eyes with all that junk on them! Ick.

i love avril she looks grreat in her smoky eyes ,but i dont think i’ll try’em

Well personally I think it would look alot better if it was thinner on the outer edge of her eyes.

Emily on

I think it’s edgy. Something I personally wouldn’t wear, but I think it’s awesome–it takes a look that we see all the time (the smoky eye) and bumps it up in an innovative way. If nothing else, it catches your attention.

I wear smoky eyes like that all the time, not just for night but to school. But that is because it is my style, and Avril pulls it off quite well. (Seeing as I look kind of simalar)

First of all, those eyes are NOT smokey…they are black!

For a 21 YO punk rocker it would look fine ON STAGE, but, Laci, the reason no one else is doing it is because it looks terrible on 99.9% of the people out there. And, yes, she needs to do something with her eyebrows.

Crystal on

I love the smokey eye look. I don’t like it on her though, she is too pale.
