GREAT MOMENTS IN EMMA'S FACESEmma Pillsbury was sadly absent from this week's episode "Laryngitis" and I know I was not the only person bummed out. Still, that doesn't prevent me with finding something to say about Emma's makeup, and I'll go back in time if I have to! And it looks like I have to!

Emma always looks smashing in her outfits, but I would like to do a countdown of my Very Favorite Emma Faces from this season thus far. This includes that fantastic hair and that Emmalicious Bang Swoosh that has been less of a focus in the Back 9. I'd like to see some more dedication to the Bang Swoosh and the awesomeness it promoted. For those who don't know, the Bang Swoosh looks like a fun water slide but it's in hair. Like this:
Without Further Ado:
The Top 5
I've also taken the liberty of using pictures and really awful Paint skills to make my point.
5. "I could get fired for this" The Rhodes Not Taken
Emma's cheeks are rosy with a hint of blush as she tries to pry information about that hussy April Rhodes from Will. OH EMMA. OH EMMA, IF WE COULD ONLY WARN YOU. SHE WILL HAVE SINGING/SLEEPING TIME IN WILL'S BED OMFG DON'T GIVE HIM THE FOLDER. BURN THE FOLDER.
4. "He deserves a lot better than you." Vitamin D
In this scene, Emma spends a lot of time talking to Terri's groin area, giving us a chance to see her lowered eyelids and great eye makeup of soft lavender and liner on the bottom outer edges. I don't blame her, Terri was eying her like a starving velociraptor. But her eyelashes look so awesome. And that swoosh just makes everyone happy, right? It's like there is a little cord behind Emma's head, and you pull it, and her bangs swoosh up like theater curtains. (At least, that's how it works in my mind, I do understand that a curling iron was actually involved).
3. "Can you keep a secret?" Preggers
OH HALE YES I CAN, WILL. CONTINUE TO WHISPER IN MY EAR WHILE I BUFF THESE HERE STRAWBERRIES AND MY EYESHADOW LOOKS ALL GOOD N STUFF. I DIDN'T HEAR YOU THE BUFFING IS TOO LOUD. WHISPER IT AGAIN. CLOSER. CLOSER.
I can't even draw on this picture as I am so distracted by Will, I ended up scribbling and drooling. Just enjoy it as is.
2. "You stuck your nasty baby-faking finger in my coffee cup HOW DARE YOU." Vitamin D
Everything about Emma in this scene was totally adorable. She's GREAT at looking totally shocked. Her hair is swooshing like a mofo, and her makeup is flawless, accentuating that pristine complexion. She's got the correct amount of concealer on underneath her eyes (an area that has been ignored in the B9 too often). She even has sweater clips! YOU GO GIRL.
1. "You got a little mustard in your butt-chin" Vitamin D (I really loved this episode, apparently)
That is supposed to be celebratory confetti being sprinkled everywhere. It looks like the wall of a liquor store in downtown Candyland, but just go with it.
This scene was absolutely perfect. So perfect it makes my teeth hurt. A perfect soft pink eyeshadow, accentuated in the crease with a light purple. The only way it could get more perfect is if rainbows appeared and a sparkling unicorn came down to take Will & Emma away to live in a castle made of cupcakes forever.
