This is the first look in my set of looks using the Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette. I combined together seafoam green, deep espresso and magenta-pink to create this look. Adding in a hint of magenta-pink to the outer part of the lid adds an unexpected flash of colour when the eyes open and close.
Note: You can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades to re-create this look (if you don’t have the Vice 4 palette).
Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original (clear)
Crease : Urban Decay Delete eyeshadow (matte deep espresso)
Lid: Urban Decay C-Note eyeshadow (medium metallic seafoam green)
Outer Lid: Urban Decay 1985 eyeshadow (medium metallic hot magenta-pink)
Highlight: Urban Decay Bones eyeshadow (light satin beige)
Lower Lashline: Urban Decay C-Note eyeshadow + Urban Decay 1985 eyeshadow (as above)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)
1. Apply Primer Potion all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Sweep Delete into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat C-Note on to the eyelid.
4. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat 1985 onto the outer part of the lid.
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Bones on to the browbone to highlight and further blend out the edges of the crease colour.
6. Take a pencil brush (e.g. MAC 219) and apply 1985 along the outer part of the lower lashline. Take the same pencil brush and lightly sweep C-Note along the middle-inner part of the lower lashline. You can lightly sweep the brush (or a clean finger) along the lower lashline to help the shades blend together more.
7. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
