Beauty expert Maria Hatzistefanis shares her holiday gift guide

2016 Guggenheim International Pre-Party Made Possible By Dior

Out of ideas for the perfect gift for your loved ones? UK-based beauty entrepreneur Maria Hatzistefanis has some suggestions for you! Whether it be a chic contouring powder or a pair of cool headphones, you should be inspired by her list which she shared exclusively with AOL.

1. Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder:
"This is one of my absolute favourite make-up products to use when I want to create that fierce, sculpted make-up look. It was great to see Makeup by Mario use it on the ultimate contour queen, Kim Kardashian West on her app. I love the deluxe packaging as it really gives the makeup that luxury feel."


2. NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme:
"The perfect product to help clear congested skin. It deeply detoxifies pores and removes excess oil and dirt, leaving you with smooth clear skin. A must have during the party season."

3. WXYZ O ring:
I got gifted this ring when mentoring on Project Runaway: Fashion Startup. I'm obsessed with it and haven't stopped wearing it since. You can style it out with any outfit – it's so versatile!


4. The Stylist Book by Rosie Nixon:
"This was a really fun novel to read. Any time I get a chance to sit back and relax, I definitely grab this book! I got lost in the world of a celebrity stylist and loved every minute of it."

5. Equipment Odette washed-silk pajama set:
"When it starts to get colder towards Christmas I always need to have a soft pair of silk pajamas to lounge around it. This is my all-time favourite set - I love the flattering wrap top and easy wide-leg pants. Super stylish yet comfy."


6. Beats Headphones:
"These headphones are great for my sons especially when we're travelling long distances. They're an ultimate gift for anyone who travels a lot or loves their music."
