Maria Hatzistefanis

The Greece-born, London-based entrepreneur traded in a career in finance to pursue her true passion: beauty. Lucky for us she did. Her initial public offering—the super-effective and fast-acting Rodial range of skincare—has earned her fans from Kate Moss to Kim Kardashian. She followed that up with Nip+ Fab, a flaw-fixing skin and body care collection that’s just arrived stateside at Target. Here, a few of her beauty must-haves.

MAC Lip Pencil in Spice

This is my favorite lip product. It gives a really natural colour and can be worn day or night. Nude lips are a fabulous trend and this adds a little pop of colour to the mix.
