Heavy black eyeliner is as much a part of Avril Lavigne 's look as her rocker chick clothing. In fact, the cover of her latest album, she's got completely over-the-top raccoon eyes . But in the new issue of Allure magazine , the singer finally wipes away the black for a dramatic make- under.
“I wear the black eyeliner pretty much every day. I do it when I’m just at home," she tells Allure . But, she adds, "I like the idea of trying new things, of playing around -- as long as you can go back to what you're comfortable in." She posed for the magazine in a simple dress, no lipstick, bangs and very little eye makeup. One thing she didn't change for the shoot: her long straight hair.
"I like to have long hair," she tells Allure. "I’m a shy person, so my hair is maybe a security net.”
