  4. I bought 'Maybelline Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes' after watching one of your previous YouTube videos. I have had the most compliments when I use it - so thanks Emily.

    Next year, any chance you could include your favourite eye makeup remover in your list for "Emily Awards - Eyes"?

  7. Have you ever tried Dior eyeshadows? it is my absolute favorite eyeshadow brand. It is super pigmented and there are gorgeous colors. It is really rare to find a eyeshadow palette with crappy colors or quality. It is a bit high end on the price but its not any more than Mac eyeshadow quads

  10. For a high end liquid liner, you should try Bare Escentuals' Weather Everything Liner Sealer ... they have it at Ulta or the Bare Escentuals' website. You use it with Bare Escentuals' Liner Shadow ... the Bare Escentuals' website has tons of colors. You mix the liner powder and liquid sealer and use the liner brush that comes with it. It has great staying power. It takes some trial and error to get the right ratio of powder to liquid ... if you use too much powder and can be flaky once it dries. I love it! You can do a fine line, thick line, wing ... and it really lasts. :)

  11. I can't wait to try these! =) If you get a chance this year, try the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows... I bet they could win next year, they're fantastic!

  12. If you haven't already, check out MU4E's Aqua Eyes pencil eyeliners. They're so unbelievably smooth and long lasting, plus the pigmentation is so vibrant! Also Urban Decay's Brow Box is really good for filling in your brows. Very compact with two powder shades, a setting wax, an applicator, and mini tweezers. Even without the wax, the powder lasts practically all day on me.
