    Hi all,

    ...she said every butt-ugly girl from five counties around has showed up with too much eyeliner and lipstick...

    (That summer, Sarah Dessen, p.47)

    What does the phrase's meaning?

    Thanks

    Just a PS: I should probably point out that butt = backside/buttocks/bum - that's why the expression is marked as 'vulgar'.
