Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls: Book Giveaway!


I'm a lady who loves to shop for clothes, makeup or anything beauty related, shoes, and of course having fun getting all dulled up. I love bright colors, and anything that sparkles... the more sparkles the better! I must admit that I'm addicted to fashion and health magazines, and like to keep up with the latest trends... at least the ones that aren't too crazy. I recently came across an awesome book called Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls: How to Turn up the Heat and Add Sex Appeal to Everyday Situations. The book is by Dimitri James with Jean Penn, and the girly illustrations are by Meghann Powell.


Instantly by the cover of the book, I couldn't wait to open and read it. I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but this one is just as fun as the cover! With the book being only 142 pages in length, it's very easy to read, and with it's storybook/textbook style of look, you fly through it with ease. With the main colors being a couple shades of pink and purple, makes this a very girly book, which would appeal to most woman.  It's size is bigger then the average novel, yet smaller then a magazine. Depending on the size of your purse, this baby should be able to go with you anywhere!

The book is filled with makeup and fashion advice to empower a "nice girl" to transform herself into a "spicy but classy woman in every situation".

The book is broken down into different chapters, which include:

  • Getting Started
  • Naughty at Work
  • Naughty First Date
  • Naughty Online
  • Naughty Cougar
  • Naughty in the Hood
  • Naughty at Home
  • Naughty Traveler
  • Naughty at Church
  • Naughty Mommy




His magical ability to see and bring out the beauty in everyone is what makes Dimitri James, the creator of Skinn Cosmetics, a supreme makeover artist.

His mother and both grandmothers were European-trained aestheticians. From an early age he watched them make their own soaps, toners and masks at home, using pure, natural ingredients, and says he was always intrigued by the beauty and skin care process. Not surprisingly, he went on to become a licensed aesthetician and served as a makeup artist for beauty brands such as Estée Lauder, Chanel, Revlon, Lancôme and Borghese. In addition, he has trained makeup artists and aestheticians for Adrien Arpel Salons and Spas.

“I learned the money spent by cosmetic companies does not always go into the product. With Skinn Cosmetics, it does.” Dimitri’s line of treatment, color and makeup products was launched in 2002 and combines the most advanced technology and delivery systems available with time honored beauty traditions. Skinn treatment and color cosmetic products are full of highly active, concentrated natural ingredients and devoid of the excess water and fillers used in most cosmetics. They are pure and effective, without sulfates or petrochemicals and other unwanted and unnecessary ingredients. Every product in the line, including makeup, offers treatment benefits. Skinn is good for your skin–the mineral makeup, for instance, uses cotton instead of talc. So, what you’ll get is the most effective product, manufactured on-site at the company’s Southern California headquarters, all done under Dimitri’s highly trained and watchful eye.

Skinn is a top selling international brand on ShopNBC (U.S.), The Shopping Channel (Canada) and TVSN (Australia). Dimitri’s first book, Becoming Beauty, his high energy, informative makeovers and demos on television have earned him a built-in audience and legions of loyal fans across the globe. Dimitri’s work and products are frequently featured on the runway and red carpet events in New York and Los Angeles, as well as on television, in music videos and in fashion editorial spreads.
