For this look, I used subtle washes of grey, lavender and plum to create a neutral, sophisticated effect 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:
Lid: Urban Decay Grip eyeshadow (soft light grey with sparkles)
Crease: Urban Decay Harlot eyeshadow (metallic light lavender)
Deepen Crease: Urban Decay Underhand eyeshadow (deep satin brownish-plum)
Highlight: Urban Decay Discreet eyeshadow (satin light mauve-beige) + Urban Decay Bones eyeshadow (satin light beige)
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. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Grip on to the eyelid.
3. Sweep Harlot into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217).
4. Take a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and use Underhand to deepen the crease. This step adds a little extra shape to the eyes.
5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), use a mixture of Discreet and Bones to highlight the browbone.
6. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
