Kim Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic shares his holiday gift picks

There's no one we trust more when it comes to picking out our holiday beauty gifts than Mario Dedivanovic.

Better known as @MakeupbyMario on Instagram, the iconic makeup artist has famously worked with Kim Kardashian since 2008 and has a long roster of high-profile clients including Chrissy Teigen and Ariana Grande. Dedivanovic got his career start working with Megyn Kelly on FOX News prior to being hired by Kardashian. 

With the holidays around the corner and gift shopping in full gear, AOL caught up with Mario to break down the beauty must-haves this holiday season.

Best mini beauty stocking stuffers?

For those winter months where the cold air makes our skin feels extra dry, I highly recommend adding hydrating serums that makes your skin feel amazing. What I love about No7’s Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Foundation is that is enriched with No7’s infamous Lift & Luminate Triple Action serum so you get the best of both worlds. A perfect and practical stocking stuffer with a flawless finish!

Another must-have stocking stuffer is the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Glow. This powder can be used to give a luminous and radiant finish to the high points of the face--including cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid's bow.

Ultimate beauty gift for the skincare junkie?

I love Tatcha Luminous Dewy Facemist for keeping my skin dewy and hydrated throughout the day. This would be the perfect skincare gift for anyone regardless of their skin type. Another favorite of mine is the Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser. It is not only a gentle facial cleanser, but it can be used to remove makeup and clean brushes.

Can't live without makeup tools/brushes?

I have around 100 brushes on my table when working on a client. However, I always make sure to have a concealer brush to help give an airbrushed look before applying foundation. I also always have an eyebrow spoolie which is one of my secret weapons for creating the perfect brow.

Must-have holiday pallets?

The perfect holiday palette is the KKW x Mario 10 pan eyeshadow palette. Not only is it great for everyday looks, but the metallic shadows can easily be used to change up your look for the holidays.
