Here, we asked celebrity make-up artist and influencer Cher Webb to demonstrate the tricks of the trade on herself. Whether you fancy trying the tonal trend with bold hues like reds and berries, or softer pinks and easy-to-wear neutrals, Webb makes it simple with tutorials showcasing her favourite products (many multi-use) in minute-long makeovers.
