“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 pulled together. The Naughty Girl has the know-how and 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 workplace 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.”

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Although, i was able to snag a few good tips from this book, I just felt as if it was written for a woman who is absolutely clueless on any and all things beauty related. I also found myself bored with the constant product advertisements. It would be a great book for hard-core plain Janes or middle snd older women trying to get their groove back, but for most young women it was merely stating the obvious.
