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

Thank you. To anyone who reads my blog, watches my videos or says Hi on social media, I can’t thank you enough for supporting me.

💡 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. ⁠
