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)

  • The new @diormakeup backstage palette in rosewood is a thing of beauty. I have to say all the dior backstage products really are staples in my pro kit. Streamline packaging and really universal products. Do you have a favorite dior backstage palette/product? This look is currently up on my stories, catch it while you can, PS if you head to my stories you can check out the hair cut I gave Dave (hint it didn’t go well) 👀

For my look I wanted to create a look inspired by summer sky just before twilight, when the trees become silhouettes, against an orange haze of sky. Plus it was fun to play with crystals again!⁠

  • I created this look for my sister as she wanted some tips for quick day makeup. Everything in this video can be built from, so for example if you add individual lashes, or liner you can change it really easily. It’s the base of so many makeup looks and great when you just want to look fresher and well rested.
  • New video is up on my YouTube Channel! (Linked in bio) I teamed up with amazing MUA @angiedib to do a Q&A swap on our channels. 
My audience asked her some really great industry questions regarding the commercial makeup industry and her audience asked me some great questions about working as a celebrity MUA. 
Make sure you watch both videos for lots of great info on being an MUA right 
now and how to keep growing!
