PHOENIX -- One of the top stylists and makeup artists in Hollywood, Darrell Redleaf knows what it takes to look great.

He stopped by Monday morning to show Tara Hitchcock some of his favorite skincare and beauty products.

One of his longtime favorites is the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System.

"No makeup is going to look good if your skin isn't beautiful," he said.

Redleaf also talked about some of the trendy color palettes, which are very bright. Not everyone can pull off the look.

"Trend on young girls is great," he said, delicately implying that more mature women should go for something more subtle.

He showed off some wonderful shimmery color combinations from Clé de Peau, which is high-end luxury line that Redleaf described as "the Bentley of Shiseido."

Redleaf and Hitchcock went on to discuss Hollywood trends.

"Fashion recycles every 20 years, so whatever we were doing in 1991 is what's coming," he said. "We're still in an '80s-inspired moment."

The last thing Redleaf talked about is Orofluido, a product line out of Spain that will be launching in the U.S. in the next month or so.

"It is an amazing, amazing product," he said. "It is liquid gold," he said of the Orofluido's flagship product, Beauty Elixir.

Unlike the popular Moroccan oil, which has just argon oil, Orofluido's Beauty Elixir also contains linseed oil and cyprus oil.

"You need this," he said.

Note: Redleaf was not paid by any of the companies that make the products she showed.
