Thanksgiving Dinner: A makeup tutorial?

So as most of you know, Thanksgiving is coming up. That mean turkey, stuffing, cranberries and pumpkin pie. So I decided to create a look inspired by the things we eat during thanksgiving.

Eyes: The eyes remind me of pumpkin pie and whipped cream. The best part of Thanksgiving day!
Note: be sure not to add much outer corner and crease color, or else it will be too dramatic.

First add a light golden creamy eyeshadow color, such as Mac's paint pot in "rubenesque".
This will go all over the lid. It's actually more champagne then shown.

Next, in the inner fourth, add Mac's "Naked Lunch". Blend this in so it covers the inner third of the lid. Make sure it blends together with the rubenesque color.
A good dupe for this color is NYX "sahara"

In the inner corner add Sephora's "Aspin Submit" eyeshadow. It's just a shimmery white color. Bring this down to the inner fourth of the bottom lash line.

In the outer fourth add Mac's "Coppering" eyeshadow. Blend this in, so there's no harsh line between it and the the lid color.
A good dupe for this would be Maybelline's eyeshadow in Copper Haze.

For the crease, take a orange brown color, such as Mac's saddle or brown script, and add it to your outer crease. Blend well.

Next, on your bottom lash line, take a golden glittery color, such as Maybelline's crease color from the "Chai latte" quad. Apply this to the outer third of your bottom lash line using a pencil or thin angle brush.

As for mascara, apply your favorite voluming mascara. Mine is Covergirl's LashBlast in "very black"

Face: As for cheeks, keep it natural, since your eyes are slightly dramatic and there will be color on your lips, you want to keep the cheeks neutral. Add a peachy color blush to the apples of your cheeks, such as Mac's "Gingerly".

Lips: For lips add a raspberry color, inspired by, cranberry sauce. I didn't choose a cranberry color, because it tends to be a little too dark. Plus cranberry sauce isn't as dark as fresh cranberries.
Make sure not to make the lips too dark or too bright, because this can be a little too much. A color such as Mac's "bombshell" lip stick would work, since it's not too dark or bright.
