How to Create Smokey Eyes Look #cbias

Disclosure - Collective Bias Blog Post In March, I shared the great news that I am attending Cybher 2013. I have never been to a blogging conference before, so I am really looking forward to it. Part of me is not sure what to expect and is a little anxious, however the other part of me is counting the days to meet new bloggers and learn more about blogging.

I am quite new to the blogging world, I have only been blogging for 13 months, and I still feel new to it and I am learning new tricks and practices everyday.

Over the weekend I went to Boots to purchase products to give myself a new look for Cybher. I want to look the best for the conference, so I chose a smokey eye effect.

You can check my Google+ Album showing my shopping trip to Boots.
