Avril Lavigne has developed a signature look for herself. Vary rarely, if ever, do you see Lavigne without her dark black eyeliner, that she has long been known for. So, to switch things up, Allure magazine decided to try something new, and give Lavigne a makeunder.
“I wear the black eyeliner — M.A.C. Smolder — pretty much every day,” Lavigne told the magazine. “I do it when I’m just at home.” Allure took her into their own hands, to reveal Lavigne’s look, minus the eyeliner. “Today we really want to switch it up,” Lavigne said during the photo shoot. “So I didn’t have very much makeup on, and just had a modern dress [and] bangs.”
Lavigne also revealed that she uses her long hair as a sort of safety net. “I like to have long hair. I wear it down a lot, especially because I have more of a tomboyish style. I’m a shy person, so my hair is maybe a safety net. I’m not sure, but I’ve always loved long hair,” she explained.
Finally, when asked about how her style had grown throughout the years, Lavigne replied: “When I was a teenager, I had stick-straight hair, black eyes, Dickies, vintage T-shirts. For my second album, I started wearing bondage pants, shopping at Gothic stores, black streak in my hair. For me, that was growth. For my record The Best Damn Thing, I put pink in my hair and wore heels and dresses,” she said.
