Sk8er Girl Goes Glam: Avril Lavigne Gets an *Allure* Makeover

At any given moment during my middle-school years, one could spot an Avril Lavigne clone roaming the halls. The telltale signs: heavy black eyeliner; Converse sneakers; long, stick-straight hair; and a haphazardly looped necktie. But while most of my peers fell out of their punk-rock phase, Lavigne dug in, moving on to pink hair and an undercut in recent years. For our January issue, we gave the star a fresh, feminine makeover. (And she gave us tips for achieving those signature smoked-out eyes.) Check out snippets from her interview with contributing editor Danielle Pergament and a video clip from her makeover shoot below.

On her current style: “I rock black leather jackets a lot. I go for a more sophisticated rocker versus the tomboy I started out as.”

On doing her own hair and makeup: “I wear the black eyeliner—M.A.C. Smolder—pretty much every day. I do it when I’m just at home.”

On agreeing to a makeover: “I like the idea of trying new things, of playing around—as long as you can go back to what you’re comfortable in.”

On what makes her feel beautiful: “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.”
