We all saw Alaska 5000 bring Lil' Poundcake to life last week. Check out my take on the legendary winner of the Junior Drag Superstar Pageant!Hello, lovelies!

This is probably not something you would want your boss to catch you reading at work, unless your boss is fucking awesome.

Lil’ Poundcake was probably the standout queen of season 5. Sorry, Jinkx! I love you, but no one can hold a candle to the winner of the Junior Drag Superstar Pageant. According to her mother, Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, “Lil’ Poundcake enjoys ridin’ dirty and being a straight up motherfucking dick pig.” If that doesn’t make her the perfect little queen, I don’t know what would. After seeing Alaska bring her to life last week, I couldn’t let another Makeup Monday Drag Edition pass without paying homage to this pint-sized drag princess.

The Steps

I started with a random foundation that was a couple shades lighter than my skin tone. Most pageant girls go for the Cheeto dust look, but I was aiming for porcelain.

Next came the brows and eyes. While my brows don’t come close to the angry arched artwork of Lil’ Poundcake’s, they’re definitely giving off some RBF realness. I had to rock some super pink blush as eyeshadow. I smeared some super dark gray from the lash line to the crease, and lined both lash lines with a black pencil. Finally, I smudged more of the pink under my bottom lashes.

Of course, my cheeks couldn’t be ignored. I used my fingers to draw lovely clown makeup circles with the same pink blush. I also highlighted my cheekbones.

The pièce de résistance of this look is of course the lips. I super overdrew my lips with black lip liner. I filled them in with perfect hot pink. Finally, I blended slightly and scowled.

Finally, I added my lashes. You can’t be a title-winning drag princess without crazy lashes. On top are Sugarpill’s Supreme, and on the bottom are old, cut up lashes from Amazon.

Lil’ Poundcake

As you can probably tell, I would never wear this look out, unless it was for Halloween or a Drag Race viewing party. Nevertheless, it was ridiculously fun to be Lil’ Poundcake for a few minutes.
