While it's made for everyone I would argue that this book is ideal for those just starting out their interest in makeup as it emphasizes important basics many people tend to overlook however it's also an excellent book for those that are already fairly well versed in cosmetics as a reminder to focus on the basics rather than trends that come and go. Despite the age of the book it's still very relevant and makes a great gift and personal reference especially with the personal stories and notes added by the author and makeup artist.

If you're considering getting both Kevyn Aucoin books I would suggest choosing one of the two as there is a lot of overlap between them.
