'Basket Case' Was Designed by Kat Von D and Billie Joel

Both Kat Von D and Billie Joel Armstrong of Green Day have been rocking bold eyeliner looks for decades, so it's only fitting that the pair collaborated in an eye liner-heavy cosmetics line called "Basket Case."

While most eye liners focus on creating sharp and delicate lines, this collection retails an "anti-precision" crayon liner that's perfect for achieving that effortless 'morning after' make-up look that's popular among punk rockers. The liner is enclosed in Gothic packaging which reads "Basket Case" -- one of Green Day's most popular songs. In addition the liner's lid features the signatures of both Billie Joel Armstrong and Kat Von D, providing fans' of the pair with a special treat.

While most cosmetic lines have shifted to more precise, cleaner looks, this collaborative effort aims to bring back the smeared, smokey-eyed looks worn by the rock stars of the 70's and 80's.
