Recipe For Radiant Summer Skin

Step 1: Base

Apply your shade of Daydream Cushion Tinted SPF to help protect and perfect your complexion as the perfect first layer in your summer routine. This is a summer must have!

Step 2: Layer

Using your choice of So Soft Multi Faceplay, apply the deeper shade under your cheekbones and along your jawline to subtly contour. Apply the lighter shade as bronzer on your cheeks, temples, nose and anywhere else you want a little extra sun-kissed glow!

Mattea's is wearing the shades Terra (for contour) and Summer (for bronzer).

Step 3: Topping

The true secret to a radiating glow is Moonbeam Cushion Highlighter! Apply your favorite shade to the high points of your face (cheekbones, bridge of the nose, center of the forehead and cupids bow) using clean fingers.

Recipe For The Perfect Summer Dessert

Make this super cute and easy layered dessert using only a few simple ingredients! For the base layer of this recipe we'll be using pre-made brownies, but you can always use homemade brownies, cake, or even Oreos! This is the perfect quick dessert for when you want to impress your guests but don't have much time. The flavors all come together so nicely and are sure to please everyone! 

Ingredients 

1-2 packages of pre-made brownies or brownies from scratch 
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
1-2 packages of strawberries 
2 tablespoons of sugar 
1 teaspoon of cornstarch 

Let's get started!

1. Start by washing your strawberries and cutting them into small pieces. If you want your strawberry layer to be more chunky, keep the slices a bit larger. If you want the strawberry layer to be softer and more syrupy, finely cut the slices. Make sure to leave a few strawberries for decoration. 
2. Combine 2 tbsps of sugar and 1 tsp of cornstarch to your cut strawberries in a bowl and mix well. Set aside in the refrigerator. 
3. Take your brownies (premade or from scratch) and cut them into small chunks. Set aside. 
4. In a cold bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla bean paste. Using a whisk attachment, whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
5. Grab your extra strawberries, placing them top down on a cutting board and slice them into fine slices for garnish.
5. Take a glass or sundae bowl and start layering the bottom with the chunks of brownies. Then, layer on top a thin layer of your macerated strawberries, placing the extra sliced strawberries against the glass. Finish by layering the vanilla bean whipped cream. Repeat each of these layers until you reach the top of your glass or bowl. 
7. Garnish the top with whipped cream, brownie crumbs, and the syrup from the strawberries.

 

Now you're ready to glow your way into any fun summer activities and you have the perfect desert to share with your friends! Enjoy! xx
