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 a standard poodle named Nyx who is adorable. My best friend Phaedra the standard poodle just passed away. You can read her celebration of life here. We just adopted a standard poodle named Amaya! You can read about her adoption story here.
I’m passionate about animal-friendly products! I’ve also started incorporating more environmentally friendly products too. I love technology that makes life easier, as well as better for the environment.
