Frequently Asked Questions...
What kind of camera do you use for videos?
My camera is HD- it's a Canon Vixia HF S200. For more information on my whole set-up, check out my video- "How I Make Videos!"
What kind of camera do you use for still photos?
I use either my Kodak EasyShare digital camera or my iPhone camera.
What editing software do you use?
I edit on iMovie, a program for mac computers.
What is the paint color in your makeup room?
It's Valspar satin finish paint in Very Berry (got it at Lowe's).
Why is your YouTube name emilynoel83?
It was just the name I chose when I first opened an account... Emily is my first name, Noel is my middle name, and 83 was the year I was born :)
Why won't you add me as a friend on Facebook?
Nothing personal at all! Facebook has a limit on "friend" accounts, so I started a page that's open to all!
How tall are you? How tall is Tyler?
I am 5'0", and Tyler is 6'6". He's very tall, and I'm pretty short... but at this point it would seem weird to us if it was any other way!
What does Tyler do?
He's an attorney.
Did you quit doing the news?
Yes, I stepped away from morning news at WSIL-TV in December of 2012 to focus on all things Beauty Broadcast full-time. I did a video explaining my decision here... that's the best way to really understand why I did what I did!
Do you miss the news?
While I don't miss hearing my alarm clock go off at 1:00 am and the sleep deprivation, I do miss my co-workers and our crazy moments together! We definitely became a tight-knit, family-type unit, so I miss interacting with the morning crew on a daily basis. In terms of the tasks I do on a day-to-day basis, I'm definitely happier getting to focus on my passion full-time... in the past I really had too much on my plate trying to do two full-time duties in one day's time.
What is your hair color?
For much of 2013 it's just been my natural color, but in October I decided to deepen it up using Clairol Natural Instincts in Ebony Mocha (a very dark brown), and this is a semi-permanent color- meaning it will fade after 28 shampoos (although I usually notice the color lasts longer on me). I've used this shade on and off in the past as well.
Where do you find limited edition Wet n Wild products?
I'm most likely to find them at Walgreens, and occasionally CVS. This might be different for you, depending on where you live.
