About Phyrra

Courtney Nawara, author of Hooded Eyes Makeup Manual

Pale? It’s called porcelain and I’m rockin’ it! Hi, I’m Courtney, the person behind Phyrra.net and PhyrraNyx on Youtube. With over a decade of makeup obsession & experience, I share the best in cruelty-free beauty & gothic fashion to inspire you to explore your unique style and expression ethically!

I’m a published author and beauty addict. I started blogging in 2008 and went cruelty free in 2012. I share honest reviews, how-to’s, tips and more to help you be fearlessly beautiful. I specialize in pale girl beauty, hooded eye makeup, cruelty free beauty and gothic fashion. I also share lifestyle tips, too.

I just published a book called Hooded Eyes Makeup Manual, exclusive to Amazon!

I love bright makeup, colorful hair, and sparkly nail polish. I have oily, hooded eyes and believe in the power of eyeshadow primer. My skintone is between N0 – N5 (see the Best Foundations for Pale Skin). I have sensitive, dry skin with rosacea. My hair is naturally a step off from black, straight, fine and color treated. I’m 5’4″, petite, and curvy. I follow a low carb low sugar high fat lifestyle. My fashion style has been described as post-Modern Faerie. I love spikes, studs and Swarovski crystals. Edgy, yet feminine gothic fashion is my favorite.

I have two dogs – a standard poodle named Phaedra who is my best friend, and a new baby standard poodle named Nyx. I’m passionate about animal-friendly products! I’ve also started incorporating more environmentally friendly products too.
