His product recommendations, many of which he uses on Reba are:

  1. Foundation: He recommends Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet & Tarte Amazonian Clay for redheads that do not like the feeling of heavy foundation or powder.
  2. Concealer: Using a small brush, conceal with Tarte Shape Tape. Brett’s Tip: Apply where there is redness and in the inner parts of the eye. Everyone has that dark area in the corner of the eyes and applying a small dot of concealer there will really open up the eye. “It makes a huge difference,” he says.
  3. Tinted Moisturizer: Use Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Specifically, he applies this to the neck since it’s the palest part of the body.
  4. Dewy Look for Redheads: After the foundation completely dries and the complete look is done, he will go in with a touch of Neutrogena Hand Cream. Dot it over the makeup lightly. He will then use Aveeno Body Lotion lightly over the concealer and under the eyes; a great tip for redheads who suffer with under eye circles (Reba does too). Brett says, “You will feel a dewiness and it stays.”
  5. Redhead Brows: Brett Brow Duo-Shade Pencil in ‘Redhead’, Brett Brow Duo-Shade Powder in ‘Redhead’, Brett Brow Duo-Shade Kit in ‘Redhead’. Use code: REDHEAD for free shipping! Click here to shop! 
  6. Favorite Eyeshadow: Always go for a taupe shadow and pair it with a liner like MAC ‘Teddy’ eyeliner. Head to the podcast to listen to how he applies this look [minute 56:00]. For a perfect everyday redhead eyeshadow look, “You want to start with something that is matte and taupe.”
