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.

  • 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
