For this look, I combined metallic aqua-turquoise and brownish-plum eyeshadows to create some contrast on the eyes.
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 Underhand eyeshadow (deep satin brownish-plum)
Lid: Urban Decay Arctic eyeshadow (metallic aqua-turquoise)
Blend Crease: Urban Decay Framed eyeshadow (matte light peachy-beige)
Highlight: MAC Shroom eyeshadow (light satin beige) or Urban Decay Bones eyeshadow (satin light beige)
Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Arctic eyeshadow (as above)
Outer Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Underhand 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 Underhand into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Arctic on to the eyelid.
4. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use Framed to blend out the edges of the crease colour.
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Shroom (or Bones) on to the browbone to highlight. I used Shroom as I find the highlight shades in Vice 4 a little dark for me. You can use Bones in place of Shroom if you want to just use the shades in this palette for the look.
6. Take a pencil brush (e.g. MAC 219) and apply Arctic along the whole of the lower lashline. Take the same pencil brush and lightly sweep Underhand along the very outer 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.
