Claire Betita de Guzman, who hails from Iloilo and is behind the bestselling book ‘No Boyfriend Since Birth’, launches her new book ‘Miss Makeover’ at Book Latte, Festive Walk Parade, Iloilo Business Park last December 2, 2017. The launching was graced by friends and guests; it was an afternoon filled with games and fun.

“Being comfortable in your own skin may just be the grandest makeover of all”. Miss Makeover narrates the story of a makeup enthusiast in her quest for real beauty in the outskirts of Panay. Miss Makeover is the fourth book following No Boyfriend Since Birth, Girl Meets World, and Budget is the New Black. Bestselling No Boyfriend Since Birth, published by Summit Books, was adapted into a five-episode TV series in 2008.

About Miss Makeover: When beauty writer and makeup maven Mara Francisco gets a grand makeover, she also got hunky, handsome Markus. It’s about time: it’s been five years since Mara’s had a boyfriend. But has Markus really fallen for her – or the new, made-up Mara? Just as things go awry, work takes Mara to a far-flung town in the Philippines for a no-frills, back-to-basics program called the Real Beauty Boot Camp. The boot camp’s main rule? Absolutely no makeup during the six-day workshop!
