I hope this blog is a place to inform, inspire and entertain.

Across Harry Makes It Up (HMIU) and its associated online platforms, I only feature products I genuinely love or want to review. Any products mentioned are either bought by myself or sent to me by makeup companies to use in my professional makeup kit.


Your information is safe with me, no one likes spam (including me) so fear not, I will never share youre information with outside parties.

Advertising & affiliates

In order to fund HMIU, I use affiliate links. This means if you click on a link and proceed to purchase that said item, I may earn a small commission of the sale. Many of these (but not all) contain ‘rewardstyle’ in the links that are affiliate.
I also have Ads that run before my videos start on YouTube for which I also receive a very small amount.

Sponsored content

Sponsored content is when I receive payment from a company/ brand or individual for creating content in which we have partnered together to create. That being said, any content I make, sponsored or not, will always be 100% my honest opinion and said in my own words. Any content that is sponsored will be clearly marked ‘AD’ or ‘Sponsored’.

Please be aware that HMIU is a secondary income for me, but it still requires a lot of my time and energy. Money made from HMIU goes back into the running of the site, channel and associated costs so I can keep making better content and upload content on a regular basis.

Comments on HMIU

I love reading your comments on the Blog, YouTube Channel and across my Social Media platforms, however any comment that is deemed inappropriate, offensive or rude will be removed immediately without notice or explanation and could result in the user being permanently blocked.


Upon receiving written permission from myself, (you can email me here: (harry@harrymakesitup.com) Please be sure to credit and link back to HMIU should you use any of my images in any other and all forms of media. Thank you.

A note to brands & PRs

Thank you for your interest in HMIU. Please take into consideration if you/ your brand or product are right for HMIU, in both the content and aesthetic I create.
If you think we are a good fit for each other then please contact salena.martell@swa-agency.com for business inquiries and for general inquiries please contact harry@harrymakesitup.com

Should you wish to gift me a product, while I’m grateful, I cannot guarantee it will be featured on HMIU or any of its online associated platforms.

A note to you the reader

  • Never not obsessed with skin! A couple of my current pro kit faves include @sisleyparisusa Black Rose Cream Mask - essential for red carpet clients especially if they've just landed after a long haul flight. ⁠
@skyniceland Hydra Cool Firming Eye Gels - these create a beautiful canvas for concealer and hydrating under the eyes as well as acting like a barrier for any fallen eyeshadow/ or to help you mark out shadow application.⁠
@biossance Squaline and Vitamin C Rose Oil for the softest skin that doesn't make makeup move.⁠
Whats your current skin obsessions?⁠

  • Who else is enjoying the #fullcoveragechallenge ?⁠
Todays @fullcoveragepod advent challenge is 'Go Big Or Go Brown' and we all know I love a brown eyeshadow. I do appreciate theres a million neutral palettes out there but I will never stop collecting any and every shade of brown eyeshadow, it just makes me happy and is such a part of my makeup uniform. Which advent day are you most looking forward to? You can shop this look at my liketoknowit account  or (linked in my bio under shop my insta) ⁠

  • Todays blog post is all about assisting in the makeup world, more specifically the do's and dont's. I assisted for three years (one of those as a first assistant) when I first started out and it really helped me learn my craft and find my own makeup style. I also found assisting a few different people really enriching because I learnt different styles and techniques which helped shape my own. It also provided a realistic portrayal of day to day life as like as a working Mua, the fun stuff and the challenges. I also assisted backstage at fashion week at Milan and London when I first moved to London which made me speedy when I have to be, so assisting has also helped make me more efficient. Its not to say its the only way to get into the industry but my experience definitely impacted my career for the better. If you're assisting at the moment or looking to get into assisting I'd love to know any burning questions you have about it?⁠

  • Throwing it back to this lovely lady @iamfoxes makeup by me. We both loved a bit of Jane Birkin and always loved a 60's eye look. This one was all about the lashes. Do you find theres a particular era in makeup you lean toward or get inspired by?⁠

  • Today on the blog I’m sharing my favourite makeup set bag options including a FREE set bag checklist you can download and print (and laminate it if you’re a kit nerd like me 😂) This is the checklist I use for every job. I’ve linked the post in stories and in my bio under ‘latest blog post’. Finding the perfect set bag is the ultimate MUA challenge so I’d love to know you’re set up in the comments below? What’s your current go to?
