Reba McEntire is never not having a moment, but her recent appearances have been A-plus in the “aging-in-reverse department.” One of her secret weapons: Her longtime makeup artist, Brett Freedman, who spilled a few of her skin-care moves so the rest of us mere mortals can create some of the McEntire-inspired magic at home.

“Reba has amazing skin,” Freedman, who is an ambassador for FarmHouse Fresh (FHF), says. “She’s diligent with sunscreen—and considers moisturizer one of her besties!”

Not surprisingly, he also divulges that Ms. McEntire is busy, and has to appear on-camera a lot.

“She can’t have any skin-care products that are intense enough to create downtime—i.e., pink skin for a few days—so she’s consistent with low-irritation products,” Freedman says.

Cell turnover is another one of Reba’s moves to keep her skin glowing and fresh-looking. “Enter FHF’s Sanded Ground Exfoliating/Clarifying Mask ($39), which has volcanic pumice and Amazonian clay is an unbeatable combination,” Freedman says. “She can smooth it over face and then leave it on for five minutes to purify and freshen the skin.”

Also part of the perfect-skin steps: A trick Freedman showed Reba years ago: “Mix the uber-hydrating Three Milk Ageless Moisturizer ($36) with a matte foundation to give a sheerer-tinted moisturizer feel that doesn’t need powdered.” (Freedman also uses the peptide-packed coconut–based hydrator on one of his other clients, the iconic Jodie Foster.)

To give a touch of color correct and hydration under eyes, Freedman adds that he reaches for the brand’s Stunning Dawn Brightening Eye Cream ($52). “A peach tint that downplays any darkness and a luminous, light-scattering formula tees up an under-eye area that needs less concealer. A true bonus in the ‘hostile’ eye area!”
