Birthstone Series: March Aquamarine

image from My Jewelry Center
And now we're in March! Time is flying at an alarming pace.
For those who were born in the month of March the Aquamarine is the traditional birthstone. The March birthstone poem reflects some of the properties with which the Aquamarine is associated - faithfulness, courage and friendship. The Traditional Metaphysical Properties for the March Birthstone Aquamarine are awareness, quick response and easing communication problems. The healing properties of the March birthstone are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to throat problems and stress-related illness. via

Aquamarine Birthstone Look

For this look I used: Shiro Finklestein on the inner corner, Victorian Disco Jack & Sally across the lid, Victorian Disco Thranduil above the crease, Shiro Bubblebeam as liner and for my brows and Victorian Disco Barrett to add some glitter.

This was a look I really struggled with, and I'm still not happy. I'm not very good at the paler looks in general and pale blues are one of the most difficult colours for me. Ah well, hopefully I'll be happier with next month's look.


  1. this subject seems to be a popular one on the blogs i follow these days and i really enjoy seeing how everyone does have still a slight different view on it, thank you! and even though you say youre not happy with the result it looks good!

    1. thanks :) I'm glad you like it. It's quite a fun theme to follow and reasonably easy to plan out each month. I was going to give Zodiac a shot this year but another blog I follow just started it and also on really busy months it would be a bit harder
