Avril Lavigne Looks Lovely Without Heavy Makeup (PHOTO)

"What would Avril Lavigne look like without that dark, streaky makeup?" we've often wondered, lying awake at night.

Now we no longer need to wonder. The punky singer submitted herself to a "makeunder" for Allure, stripping off the signature eyeliner and mascara for the magazine's January 2014 issue.

Although the "Complicated" singer, now 29, admits that she wears black eyeliner literally every day -- "I do it when I'm just at home" -- we think she so looks lovely without dark-rimmed eyes. But with this gorgeous new photo by Sebastian Kim, we're reminded that it is actually possible to take off your heavy makeup -- even if you're the kind of girl who feels naked without it.
