Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls is a book on How to turn up the heat and add sex appeal to everyday situations. It is by Dimitri James, the head of the Skinn cosmetic line. (And while he says he is not trying to sell you his line – every illustration in the book of makeup has Skinn written on it.)
I went in to this book figuring I would give it a chance. I don’t wear makeup, I hate to wear dresses and skirts. I’m probably considered a Nice Girl moreso than a Naughty Girl. Maybe it would give me a few tips on how to change things up a bit. It kind of did, but at the same time, I found the book to be a bit ridiculous as well. (He suggests wearing mascara to bed? If you have a significant other that needs to see you made up 24/7 then maybe they are not the person for you. I mean, you’ve got to have SOME down time, no?)
The book is broken down in to 10 chapters:
Naughty At Work
Naughty First Date
Naught in the Hood
Naughty At Home
Naughty at Church
Fortunately the Church chapter was not as offensive as I was expecting it to be (he did say to try and stick more towards the Nice Girl side of things) but he mentioned not to wear a lot of jewelry because a guy might think that you have a boyfriend buying it for you. So a woman who likes to buy herself jewelry because she has a good job and makes good money can not show these items off because they might turn off a potential man? Again… ridiculous and that would NOT be the guy for me…
Some of the things I liked in the book was the area that told you based on your figure what types of clothing you should wear to accentuate your figure and what you should avoid. I do think that I already wear the right types of clothing (most of the time) but it was nice to have it in writing just in case I need a refresher and as proof that I might be doing something right with my look 😉 It was also nice to see the images of the “trashy girls” and to know that I am definitely NOT one of those!
While there may be a few tips in this book I will consider trying out, I’m not yet convinced I should change my ways. And maybe that means I will be single forever. But at least I will be comfortably single in sneakers and jeans! I think I might have been more interested in this book if he kind of eased in to things and showed you how to slowly transform yourself into a naughty girl. If I show up at work on Monday with a completely done up face in makeup.. aren’t people going to think I’m having a quarter life crisis? How can you go from never wearing makeup to trying it out?
Think that you might be a bit more open minded about Dimitri’s tips on becoming a “Naughty Girl”? I have 1 copy to give away to a reader. Contest ends July 9, 2012 at 12:01AM EST.
About the Book
Naughty is the new Nice..
Every time a Nice Girl shows me a Facebook photo of the woman who got the guy, the new job or the promotion, it is invariably of a Naughty Girl who looks sexy and put together. The Naughty Girl has the know-how and the self-confidence to turn heads and use her appeal to captivate and capture what and whom she wants.
I have always loved Nice Girls. I was tired of seeing them overlooked again and again both in the work place and by men in social situations because they lack the instincts of their Naughty Girl sisters. And since I have devoted my career to showing women of every age and shape how to repackage themselves, I decided to do something about it.
Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls is loaded with makeup and fashion advice to empower a Nice Girl to transform herself into a spicy but classy woman in every situation. So, go ahead and channel your inner naughty. Instead of fading into the background, become a star in your own life!
