How to insert Emoji into Illustrator — the easy way.
Emmanouil F Ioannidis

Very nice! Been looking for this for a loong time!

But you can actually do this in Illustrator as well. Same principle. Create a text box, in your Character panel select Apple Color Emoji and hit enter. After this the Glyphs panel wil pop-up and you can select whatever emoji you want.
