Maria Menounos reveals her secret

Maria Menounos gives us an inside look at the product she can't be without on the red carpet.

Maria Menounos reveals her secretExtra correspondent — and our February Girl Crush — Maria Menounos is a staple on the red carpet. She always looks fabulous, so we just had to ask her for the inside details on her essential red-carpet beauty accessories.

"Always keep TopStick handy — you never know when you will need it, or who will need it!" Menounos told SheKnows.

Not familiar with TopStick?

Get used to the name, 'cause you're going to be telling people about it in the future. TopStick ($6, Sally Beauty Supply) is a medical-grade adhesive tape first used to keep wigs in place. Now, it's every stylist's essential item to hide everything from wayward bra straps to a ripped hem.

Of course, part of that glow comes from Menounos' nearly 15-year relationship with boyfriend Keven Undergaro. The two are blissfully in love, even after all this time — and she doesn't even want to get married!

"We're both like fish on the subject — we just flip and we flop," she joked. "There are times when we are like, 'Oh, we should do it!' But you know, I also feel like we've been together for such a long time. In my mind, we have been married. So I don't really see the difference."

So, all we have to do to look like Maria Menounos is buy some TopStick and get a loyal BF? If only it were that easy.
