Guest Blogger Series: Courtney from Fresco Phyrra!

Today's guest blogger is the stunning goth-chic Courtney, whose eye looks never cease to make me say "ooh, pretty!" every time I check out her blog, Fresco Phyrra. I think she has such a unique eye color, and her application talent enhances that all the more. Courtney does a wide range of makeup looks, and also includes some nails, product reviews, and of course her precious pup, Phaedra in her posts. If you aren't familiar with her work, check out her blog for some inspiration and show her some link/follower love! For today's look, she used a variety of products which can be found below the photos. The majority of her eye colors are mineral shadows from I Touch Roses. She also gives a helpful description of her application, including placement of the shades and which brush types she used. Many thanks to Courtney for furnishing this look for my Guest Blogger Series. If you'd like to be a guest blogger, just send me an eMail.
