Romantic summer styles and the perfect picnic spot.
We got back to nature with inspiring Acworth-based, Belgium-originated blogger Silvia Saey-Gevaert of Good Tidings. Come along as we follow her down a wooded trail to crumbling ruins, across a river and up to a romantic dappled picnic with her husband, Nic.

BD|RW: What’s big right now for summertime makeup?
Caurie: Rose golds are everything right now! Also a huge trend is the monochromatic look, so using similar shades on lips, eyes, and cheeks.
BD|RW: What techniques did you use on Silvia’s look?
Caurie: We focused on perfect complexion. Silvia already has amazing skin, but we used a primer with some shimmer to create a glow underneath liquid foundation by Urban Decay.
BD|RW: How do you keep your makeup looking fresh even on a humid day?
Caurie: Primer, primer, and primer! I use Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer. In addition, thin liquids and powered foundations hold their “set” longer than a cream in summer. Setting sprays are also great to lock in your look.
BD|RW: As a professional makeup artist, what are your favorite products?
Caurie: L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara; NYX Liquid Suede lipstick; Tarte Black Felt Tipped eyeliner; BH Cosmetics Carly Bybel Special Edition shadows; and for bronzer and contour, I love LORAC. Plus, Lavender Lashes (of course!) in “Jayne.”
