We love makeup trends that a) we can do in a moving vehicle and b) don't require our entire makeup bag to pull off. Here's how to create an edgy sultry eye for summer with just two products, Maybelline Volum'Express Colossal Chaotic Lash mascara and Maybelline Line Express Eyeliner.

1. Quickly sweep eyeliner along your top and bottom lash lines. Don't be precise—the messier you are, the better.

2. Use your ring finger to smudge the liner up and out along your lid and lower lash line.

3. Follow with two thick coats of mascara: One applied with the wand held horizontally, as you usually would, and another with the wand held vertically.

The vertical application separates the lashes and adds volume at the same time, which makes this look edgier than the traditional smoky eye. (Pro tip: The Maybelline Volum'Express Colossal Chaotic Lash wand has a special curved tip that makes vertical application super simple.)

The final look: Bombshell. And you didn't even use a mirror.
