Rihanna may not have invented the gold highlight, but she definitely turned it into a major Spring trend. At Fenty x Puma’s motorcross mania S/S ’18 show, RiRi’s model gang were all dressed up in neon streetwear and their faces were given a true Fenty Beauty treatment — the fan-favorite hyper-metallic gold ‘Trophy Wife’ highlight was gloriously strobed on their cheeks, temples, inner corners of the eyes, and Cupid’s bows, which created an overall high-impact look.
Coincidentally, Michael Costello, Versace, Derek Lamb, and more designers soon sent out models with a pop of golden highlight on their faces — a look that is fitting for the warmer days ahead. If this is any sign that gold is the It highlighter shade next season (instead of purple or peach), we’re totally on board. After all, if there’s any beauty trend that you can wear all year round, it would none other be the golden glow.
