I used my Manly palette heavily for this, which I will be making a graphic for shortly to tell you which numbers correspond to which shadows.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
Manly #23 (cyan), #49 (dark pink), #39 (purple), #43 (black), #86 (dark blue, used as a liner on bottom)
Lorac Front of the Line PRO in black
Sephora Nano Liner in Lagoon and Pure White
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 0L
Urban Decay Lush Lash Mascara
Notes to go along with her tutorial:
Instead of using a white pencil all over my eyes, I went with Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Eden. I tremble when I think of using anything other than a primer before shadow application.
I used a small eyeshadow brush to apply the cyan, the pink, and the purple. As she suggested, I used an eyeliner brush to do the black. To put the pink in the inner corners of my eye, and to blend, I used Sephora's Classic Rounded Smudge Brush ($15). It took a lot of blending to take away the harshness of the black (I wanted to soften that up). I used circular strokes, moving upward.
To apply the blue shadow on the bottom lid, I used Sephora's Classic Smudge Brush ($14) to wiggle it into my lower lashline.
On the lower lashes, I only applied mascara in the outer corners. I used Sarah Lucero's tip, and painted it onto the lashes with a concealer brush.
I really like the black in the crease and in the corners up to the eyeshadow. It's something I wouldn't have ordinarily thought of... clearly, I need to start thinking outside the box a bit more!
