Blinking animation help?

So I would consider myself a beginner in After Effects. I wanted to get blinking animation like 45 sec into this video, as example;

To give an impression of my skill level this is what I tried but didn't work out. I thought of just making different layers for the eyelids; open, mid, closed; and giving them their respective key frames would work but it didn't. Came out with noticeable pauses now matter what I did. So unlike the smooth motion of that video.

Help? Advice?

Probably morphed somehow instead of using different states.

Care to elaborate a little bit?

Draw an eyelid and distort it using a corner pin or a bezier warp or some other distort filter, link the animated value to a slider.
