It’s funny — some of our favorite effortless beauty looks also seem like the most difficult to master (we're looking at you, wavy beach hair). Among the worst culprits is the grungy, messy, rock ‘n’ roll eyeliner. But here’s a two-step trick for achieving this rocker babe look that finally makes the style as easy as it is edgy and gorgeous. Ready to rock?

Step 1. Before you begin, find the right eyeliner. Look for a really creamy pencil that blends easily, like Maybelline Eye Studio Master Smoky Longwearing Shadow-Pencil in Blake Smoke or Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil.

Step 2. Generously layer the liner on the lower lash line, making sure to get it inside the rim and on top of bottom lashes.

Step 3. Immediately blink vigorously and squeeze your eyes shut. This will both blend and smudge it while getting it on your upper lash line.

And there you have it — the perfect messy, rocker-glam eye in seconds, with no mirror required.
