Gemstones inspired series - n 1: Blue Sapphire

Hello everyone,
some days ago I was browsing some pictures I took at the Natural History Museum in London in 2008. I found some shots of their amazing gemstones section, and that made me think of how many wonders this planet has.

To celebrate our beloved nature, I have decided to have a gemstone ispired series, where I will be having fun with eyeshadows, and try to recreate the amazing colors of some gemstones.

This week, I was inspired by the Blue Sapphire (click here if you want to learn curiousities on Sapphires and Blue Sapphires).

I apologize for the poor quality of the photo: 1. blue eyeshadow is really hard to photograph well; 2. I cut the picture and the quality and colors became terrible! Next time I will do a full face shot I guess.

Products used:
very light glittery blue eyeshadow in the Precious Gold palette from Pupa Milano;
Flipside e/s from UD BOS II;
Jinx e/s from UD BOS II;
Indigo e/s from Elizabeth Arden's Jewels & Velvet palette;
Shimmery dark blue e/s from the Sleek Storm palette;
Dark bright blue e/s from the Sleek Acid palette;
Black eyeliner pencil from Revlon;

can't remember the mascara I used, because I took this days ago.

I will try and be more accurate in the future, and post the picture as soon as I take it :)
