Billy Joe Armstrong, the singer-guitarist for Green Day, is one of those men who looks fantastic in eyeliner. The American punk rocker is still looking amazing 30 years into his punk career and still rocking eyeliner. But now, the iconic artist has teamed up with Kat Von D to collaborate on a new product. With all our brains on nostalgia these days, the throwback to the 1994 Green Song Basket Case is already a hit.
Kat Von D, a tattoo artist, and model is well-known for her bold beauty line that often features shades other beauty lines are afraid to go near. So, when she announced she was collaborating with Billie Joe, I knew it wouldn’t be shy of show-stopping. A recent photoshoot and promotion gave the world its first look at the new eyeliner on none other than Billie Joe Armstrong himself.
Billie Joe’s signature charcoal smudged look may have inspired an entire hoard of teenage girls to wear eyeliner in the 1990s, though not to the same punked-out degree. Today, nothing holds us back, and we’re prepared to rock those smoky, smudged looks. The new eyeliner is perfect for the job because it's like no other liquid liner ever.
Liquid liners are considered precision tools in our makeup bags. The fine lines create the most daring looks, but the new Basket Case Eyeliner is hailed as an anti-precision smudge liner. It’s the first of its kind and gives you the smudged, worn all-day look that you desire. Sometimes, we crave that lived-in look, and this new eyeliner will do precisely that.
As a Green Day fan, I’m eager to get my hands on this new Kat Von D eyeliner. As soon as I do, you can expect to hear the Dookie album on repeat as I relive the 1990s in my lived-in look.
