Rock the pool party in neon blue eyeliner, turquoise shadow and ocean hues and you’ll make waves for all the right reasons.

“Give the classic smoky eye an edgy update with a bold blue accent around the inner corners and lower lash line, bronze cheeks and plenty of mascara on both the upper and lower lashes,” says Priceline Pharmacy Makeup Director Rae Morris.

Here are some of our favourite celebs rocking the bold look…

Step 2 – Line both the top and bottom inner rim with a blue colour, and have the inner corners meet just past where your eye ends. Try Australis Gelifeye Gel Eyeliner in Blueberry Breeze, $11.49

Step 3 – Now, go over your top and bottom lashline with a black eyeliner. Follow with lots of mascara for extra impact. Try Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in Blackmail, $12.95

Step 4 – Finish with a dusting of dark powder under your cheekbones to contour, and some light powder over your nose and apples of cheeks to highlight. Try Models Prefer Duo Contour Powder, $12.99
