Designers' spring/summer shows were infused with gold and other metallic colors, and as fashion blog Refinery29 points out, can serve as inspiration for warm and shimmery beauty spring looks. Given that the post has been cited since by the New York Times and StyleList might indicate that they're on to something.

While gold outfits might be difficult to incorporate into everyday outfits, the corresponding makeup options (highlighters, nail polish, eyeliner, lipsticks and glosses, eye shadows) are far more wearable.

All major beauty brands have released something golden for this spring. Here is a first selection of products:
