Emily Awards 2012: FINALE!


Welcome to the finale of the 2012 Emily Awards! If you've been wondering about favorite brushes, skincare, nails, body, and hair products- you've come to the right place! I love the finale because it handles all of those random, yet frequently asked about areas of beauty. I also include my makeup MVP's (Most Valuable Products), as well as some other fun categories! 

I am always eager to hear your feedback on the Emily Awards. What did you like? Was anything missing? I want to keep improving the Emily Awards each year, so if the videos left you with any unanswered questions, I'd love to know! I may also put together a little "behind the scenes" video with some outtakes of all of the crazy intros I shot with Tyler & Cupcake :) 
Thanks so much for watching! Love you all!!!

  4. These were wonderful. I was actually wondering if you have a favorite shampoo and conditioner you'd like to share.
    BTW I was in Walgreens today and saw a Wet and Wild display with your lovley face on it. It made me happy that I knew who you were.

  7. Hi Emily! Great videos, as usual :) Something you can add for next year is to list or name the nominees for each category before announcing the winner (kind of like movie awards).
    That way we know what they were up against and that makes it much more valuable.

    Thanks for all these videos, very helpful and entertaining :)

  12. I finally broke down & ordered my first Sigma brushes after this video! I've literally been stalking the F80, so I went ahead and got the Synthetic Essential 10 piece to start with & I'm planning on the Essential Kit next. So, SO excited! Thank you!!
