Tarte Bon Voyage Set: Tutorial for the Holidays

The other day I posted a review on the Tarte, Bon Voyage holiday set, here, and I decided to create
 a look with it because I keep falling more and more in love with it, and it's been the only palette that has torn me away from the Vice 3 palette. Last year I created a look for Thanksgiving so I wanted to do it this year too. This is honestly the most well balanced neutral palette I've come across and all the other goodies that come along with it are a perfect bonus. So here is the look I keep loving.
Here's a numbering chart to go along with the tutorial.
1) Palace of Versaille
2) Chantilly Lace
3) Moulin Rouge
4) I Think I Cannes
5) C'est La Vie
6) My Own Cotes diu Rhone
7) Le Cordon Bleu
I took 1 and put it on my brow bone and inner corner of my eye and a bit of 2 in the inner corner of my eyes to reflect light.
Then I took 3 and put it just barely above the brow bone, followed by 4 in the socket and 5 on the lid.
For a soft day look you can finish with mascara or for a bit more drama continue...
Then I took 6 and created a C shape around my socket and outer V. I then went back in and blended it out and blended it under my eye slightly. Then I took 7 along my lash line and blended it out with my finger.
Continuing with the angled brush I put 7 half way along my outer lower lash line and then blended that with 4 on my inner lower lash line. After that a just curled my lashes and put a few lashings of  the included Lights, Cameras, Lashes mascara.
I decided to go with the LipSurgence Lip Tint in Romance instead of the gloss that also came in the set. I used the limited edition Cheek Tint in Muse and blended it with my fingers.
Here's the finished look. I think this is a really appropriate look for a family gathering and it photographs really well, so you can be guaranteed to look good in all the holiday pictures.

I hope this has given you some ideas about how you want to look this holiday season and that 
you enjoyed the tutorial. And to my American readers have a happy and safe Thankgiving tomorrow and be careful if frying the turkey.
