Maripier Morin always has impeccable style, whether she’s walking the red carpet, making television appearances, or gracing the cover of a magazine. The bubbly host, who can also be seen on the show Hockey Wives - shared her fashion and beauty must-haves with us.
Maripier, what's the secret to your beautiful lips?
Thank you for the compliment! I start by defining my natural lip line with a pencil. Then, I apply lipstick in a shade similar to the liner. And voilà!
You suffer from adult acne—you’ve even addressed it in the media. How do you deal with it?
At first, I panicked. I quickly started looking for an effective treatment. There are highs and lows, but I try to be optimistic: one day, I’ll be completely rid of the situation. In the meantime, there is no point in trying to cover anything up. When I’m breaking out, I play up other parts of my face, like my lips or eyes, and try to let my skin breathe as much as possible.
What is your favourite manicure style?
I like to wear a single, classic colour on almond-shaped nails. That’s my current favourite look.
What is your favourite beauty product?
The TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume reverse shampoo and conditioner system. These two miracle products have achieved the impossible: giving my super flat hair some volume!
What is your favourite piece of clothing?
My leather bomber jacket, which I almost always have on. It’s my lifelong favourite!
What are your wardrobe essentials?
My jean jackets and Saint Laurent sandals.
What accessory do you buy too many of?
Shoes. I don’t think it’s possible to have too many pairs of shoes!
What was your biggest fashion splurge?
A Saint Laurent bag… It cost me $4,000!
What is your worst fashion faux pas?
A yellow dress and… yellow hair at an awards night in 2011. I matched from head to toe!
What is the secret to your success?
I approach all my projects with energy and passion.
What advice do you have for girls who would like to follow in your footsteps?
Three words: perfectionism, rigour, and devotion.
How were you able to transition from reality TV to hosting?
I was successful because of my perseverance and my work ethic.
