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)

💡 If you're a makeup artist and you're worried about what to do right now given the current circumstances, I'm going to be sharing some ideas next week on my blog harrymakesitup.com and over on my newsletter (there's a sign up link in my linktree in my bio) ⁠
Hope everyone's safe and well x⁠
  • 🙏 I want to say THANK YOU to you today. Thank you for helping me stay sane during this crazy time. Creating content for you has been such a joy and it's honestly the part of my day I look forward to most. ⁠
Thank you for your lovely comments saying how much you're enjoying them, it's so lovely to hear how much a little bit slap can offer some kind of escapism during these incredibly challenging times.⁠
💓 All I know is we're all doing our best and we're in this together. I'm still making my way through my list of tutorial requests for those who are having to work right now to keep the rest of us safe. ⁠
If you are one of those amazing people who are working in order to keep us all safe right now, e.g. you're a medical professional, a delivery driver, working in a warehouse/factory or stacking the shelves in a super market, please DM with your job and what tutorial/tip you'd like to see and I'll do my best to get as many done as I can.⁠
👏 I'm also going to do a tutorial later today dedicated to all the mums and dads out there who have suddenly found themselves teachers too. Big shout out to you guys for putting on all the hats right now, and generally being awesome!⁠
All the tutorials I've created so far are saved in my story highlights under the name of the person who requested the look. Hope you guys are safe and well. Harry x⁠
  • This is the kit I take with me for most red carpet jobs, or jobs when I know who the client is so it’s easy to edit things down. The kit bag and depotting bottles are saved in my story highlights under ‘my kit’
  • This look is up on my stories and have saved it as a highlight under ‘Amy’ as she requested a blue eyeshadow look. 
I get so many questions about blue eyeshadow and how to wear it and honestly, I don’t think there’s a wrong way to wear it. 
Blue eyeshadow is like red lipstick in that you have to own it! If the idea of going all out scares you try wearing it as a liner or under the lower lash line. Shot this photo on the new iPhone 11 Pro with the front facing portrait mode. It’s rite good. Earrings by @whitespacejewelry

  • My Current favorite Cream Highlighters 👇⁠
In my pro kit and on myself more often than not I love a cream highlighter that doesn't really have any pigment and captures the same sheen you'd expect to find on a pearl. All of these also look amazing on the eyes too. ⁠
