2012 Emily Awards FOTD's

Hey everyone!
Seems like a long time since I've written a blog on here that wasn't a run down of my Emily Award winning products! I want to send a huge thank you to everyone who took time to watch and share a kind comment... these videos require so much work but it is so fulfilling to find that people really look forward to them and enjoy watching them! I hope the blog posts listing the products were useful to you as well... I think those posts are easier to print off or refer to on your phone when you're out shopping. 

Anyway, the point of this post is to point out the key products from each of my "looks" in the Emily Awards series. I believe someone came up with the idea during last week's Beauty Broadcast Live Ustream show (by the way, that's happening again Thursday morning at 9am CST!) From lip gloss to eyeshadow- I've had a lot of questions about what I was wearing- so here ya go! :) 

This look was overall pretty natural... until you see the liner & lashes :) 
I kept the hair pretty simple as well- I just did a side part and curled the ends away from my face. 

Blush: The Balm Frat Boy
Eyes: LORAC Pro Palette- Lt. Bronze, Pewter, and Espresso
Lips: Mally High Shine Liquid Lip Color in Mally's Look 

Obviously if you're doing a video all about eye products- you want the eyes to steal the show! 
That's what I was trying to do anyway in this video. I used my bun maker for a casual updo. 

Blush: The Balm Frat Boy (this is also in the Balm Jovi palette)
Eyes: The Balm Rockstar Palette - Balm Jovi- Adagio, Alice Copper, Moderato, Presto
Lips: NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Rose

As a whole, I was channeling the looks I saw on the Golden Globes in this video. I saw lots of old school, glamorous curls, so I figured- why not try that with my hair!
I put my hair in velcro rollers then pulled it all to one side. Makeup-wise, I went for more of a simple, low maintenance eye with no liner in the waterline, and really not much happening on the lower lashline at all. I still went with big lashes, and a light pink lip. 

Blush: Physician's Formula Happy Booster Blush- Natural
Eyes: L'oreal Infallible Shadow- Bronzed Taupe and Smoked Plum (just a little on the outer corner)
Lips: Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Sweet Watermelon

It's amazing how a deeper lip color can change the tone of a whole look!
After going with pink lips for the other videos, I opted for not only a deeper lip, but a pretty intense eye as well (excuse my awkward screen shots). I curled my hair all over and went with a center part for something different. 

Blush: The Balm Down Boy
Eyes: The Balm Shady Lady Vol. 1 - light pink, purple, navy
Lips: Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Rich Raisin 

Daily Nuggets...
  • We are currently without heat in the house! My little Duraflame is doing a good job for us though. Repairman yesterday didn't seem to have a clear idea of what was wrong, and another guy came today. Looks like we'll probably be getting a whole new heating system. Oh joy. 
  • Went to Wal-Mart and didn't expect to find Drew Barrymore's Flower makeup line- but I did! Wowza! I bought some things to review. 
  • I'm trying to reply to tweets and I'm incredibly behind due to Emily Awards consuming so much of my time for the past week. Twitter won't let me get back to some tweets from about a week ago that I was trying to answer. So if your question from last week didn't get answered- feel free to ask again. 
  • I have put together a blooper/highlights video for the Emily Awards :) 
  • Made chicken enchiladas for dinner- they were delightful!
  • Time for American Idol!! 


  1. I really need to get the Lorac Pro Palette and the one from the Balm, too. You looked beautiful as always, Emily!

  2. Thank you so much Emily for the Emily Awards! I have a list of this I want to get, can't wait to go shopping! :)

  3. First off, thank you SO much for the Emily Awards! I was waiting for them all year...no joke. But I did have one question - are you planning on doing a 2012 Fails video? I find those to be both helpful and entertaining. Thanks again!

  4. Can't wait to see your review of the Flower line.

  5. Interestingly, my favorite eye is from "lips"! Also, I bought the Neutrogena Color Stick in Raisin today . . . LOVE . . So moisturizing and long lasting which is a rare combo! I want more of those, for sure!

  6. can you please do another 2012 fails video like you did last year?
    check out my blog!

  7. Oh, must stay away from Walmart now. Loved the Emily awards. The first time seeing them, but they were so helpful. The tutorials and now awards help me learn about new products and looks without over buying. Tyler is such a doll.

  8. Gorgeous!!!!! LOVE your technique, attitude and direction! You go, girl!

  9. I'm recommending your blog to my news anchors at WIU, and we are all hoping for a chance to speak to you about your experiences in the media business. Great job on the websites, Emily!

  10. Emily I LOVE your blog & videos! Could you post your chicken enchilada recipe too? Thanks for all you do! Take care & hope your heat gets fixed soon.

  11. Emily I LOVE your blog & videos! Could you post your chicken enchilada recipe too? Thanks for all you do! Take care & hope your heat gets fixed soon.

  12. I love all these looks. They are so pretty. I really want to get that Lorac palette. :)

  13. Really looking forward to hearing what you think of Drew Barrymore's Flower cosmetics I highly doubt we will see them anytime soon here in Australia though :o)


  14. Oh thank you so much for posting this! You always look so polished and I am trying to make that a part of my every day routine (that's a NY resolution right there). As a single mum of three studying fulltime it can be hard but my strategy is to start with the essentials (primers, tinted spf, powder, mascara) and build up to managing some of the more precision stuff (blush, bronzer, eyeshadow)every day. The Emily Awards were so great and a lot of fun! Can't thank you enough for sunshine your vids bring to my life. Have an awesome day! :)

  15. Really lusting after that Balm Jovi palette. My birthday is only a month away! Hope I can hold off!

  16. Oh I'm curious about the Drew Barrymore products!

  17. What foundation are you wearing in these videos and the shade? Also what shade are you in the true match powder? Thanks so much! Your videos are so helpful!

  18. Hi Emily! I just to comment on American Idol. This week was my first week watching and I have to say.. IF first impressions are lasting (which they aren't always, I know :-) I would say that I would not be sad at all if Nicki Minaj were to leave the show NOW... and someone were to take her place. Wow... yep... I like Keith and always liked Randy, but also not too thrilled with Mariah..DIVA AND DIVA JR. in she and Nicki.. J Lo is missed, she was great...

  19. I'm so excited for the 2012 fails video!

  23. Seconding fails videos. Since I noticed you used it and looked great, do you have any tips on how to use the Happy Booster in Natural? I have a lot of trouble getting it to show up on me, and I think we have a similar skin tone. I tend to overdo it with the more pigmented blushes like Wet n Wild, so I thought it would be good for me, but now it looks like I'm not wearing anything at all. So waiting for the Neutrogena Color Sticks to start showing up near me!

  24. Hi Emily, I emailed you today at your beauty broadcast email address. Just giving you a heads up in case it went to your junk mail. Subject was " Contact". Thanks!

  25. Thank you so much for sharing all this information, and in such a fun way! I cannot imagine how much time and effort must have gone into it all... Much appreciated!

  26. I've been looking at the Lorac Pro Palette for a while... hoping to get it for my birthday! *fingers crossed* haha

  27. Hello Emily, can you please do a tutorial using The Balm Rockstar Palette - Balm Jovi? I usually get everything you recommend. I got this palette and the Lorac Pro, but I haven't seen any good tutorials using the Rockstar palette. Thank you for your hard work :)
