Team MDC is feeling a little nostalgic, and while we don’t exactly miss the infamous scrunchies, butterfly clips, thin brows and dark lip liner of the ’90s, there is one thing that is making a comeback — frosted lipstick. This candy-colored lacquered lip screams middle school Mandy Moore and we’re loving it! Here to show you how to land this throwback look is our go-to gal, makeup artist Alana Dawn.

1. Using a lip brush, apply a matte, nude pink lipstick like L’Oréal Colour Riche Lipcolour in Fairest in Nude.

After filling them in, define your lip line with a natural or invisible liner. Try using Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in Clear to ensure long-lasting color that doesn’t feather.

Finish off your frosted pout with a light pink, shimmery gloss like Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Miracle.
