    pass on and taken up on it

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from The Next Thing on My List by Jill Smolinski:

    "I did pass on Brie's offer to do my makeup for me. (I'd almost taken her up on it until she'd boasted, "I do one face and it works on everybody.")

    In this context, does "pass on" mean "reject"?
    Does "taken her up on it" mean "believe her words"?

    Does "taken her up on it" mean "believe her words"? No - accepted her offer
