the Editor

“For me makeup is all about experimenting, it’s another form of play, a way to express yourself, and there really aren’t any rules”

Fashion and Celebrity Makeup Artist Harriet Hadfield is the Editor and Curator of Harry Makes It Up. Harry (as she’s known to her friends and family) started HMIU during her time working in London (she now resides in Los Angeles), as a one stop destination for all your beauty needs. HMIU also creates content with an aim to help makeup artists get noticed in the digital sphere, grow their client base take their work to the next level.

Harry’s work includes editorials for Elle, Vogue Italia, Marie Claire, Hunger, Nylon & Wonderland Magazine. To see a full list of editorials and celebrities click HERE.

Harry’s approach to beauty is always with the skin as a focal point, and with a less is more philosophy. ‘I like to create makeup that reveals a person’s character rather than masking it’

HMIU has featured in Elle, Grazia, Refinery 29 & Highbrow and seen collaborations with beauty giants Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, GHD, Glossier and World Duty Free Beauty to name a few.

Other passions include a love of film photography & scrap booking. Harry is also an avid stationary hoarder, obsessed with planners and a lover of general organising. She loves spending time near the ocean and is often partial to a classic margarita! (With salt…always)

Harry is also one half of the beauty podcast ‘Full Coverage’ with author and fellow beauty lover Lindsey Kelk, which has been featured in the Coveteur, Glamour UK, Stylist, The Evening Standard & Grazia UK.

  • It's so easy to get hung up on goals, so if this is you, try focusing on systems instead.⁠
Focus on systems that allow you flexibility to work towards your goals without obsessing over the goal itself. ⁠
Whether that's work or personal, I know for me creating systems that keep me focused, happy and healthy are so much better for my sanity than my traditional 'all or nothing' mindset. ⁠
My systems include:⁠
✖︎ Getting up early when I can⁠
✖︎ Moving my body⁠
✖︎ Journalling⁠
✖︎ Cooking ⁠
✖︎ Old fashioned paper planning ⁠
✖︎ Meditation⁠
✖︎ Margaritas with Friends⁠
✖︎ Date Nights⁠
✖︎ Time alone to regroup and access where my head is at⁠
✖︎ 'Monk' Mode (working with all electrical devices out of sight/switched off) ⁠
Take the pressure off, and keep putting one foot in front of the other ☺️⁠

  • This week I’m prioritizing some serious self care! I commit to focusing on things that make me feel good, nourishing my body with delicious home cooked food, moving my body, and taking my makeup off properly! ⁠
When work is crazy I’m the first to admit I get a bit lazy with my skincare routine so it feels really good to light a candle in the evening and remove my makeup with @gotoskincare Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser the moment I get home! ⁠
Yep! As soon as I’m home, I change into my comfys and wash my face. Check out my stories to see my self care routine and Fancy Face in action. Who’s with me? #fancyface #gotopaidme
