1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, with racks in middle and lower positions. Line 3 muffin tins with 34 liners. Whisk together 3 cups flour, the baking powder, and salt. Beat butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and the vanilla until pale and fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
2. Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with milk.
3. Beat whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff, glossy peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, fold one-third of the whites into batter, then carefully fold in remaining whites. Gently toss blueberries with remaining 1/4 cup flour to coat. Gently fold floured blueberries into batter. Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners.
4. Bake until cupcakes spring back when touched, 23 to 25 minutes. Let cool in tins on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from tins, and let cool completely on wire racks. Frost cupcakes and garnish each with a raspberry.

I am SO excited for my upcoming seven hours of QVC U.S. event shows coming up June 27, 28, and 29—and I’m celebrating my make-up merriment by sharing my seven favorite new beauty must-haves for my Geller Girls!
Retro glam has never looked so good. Inspired by the fabulous fashions of 1950s Italy, Ciao Bella creates sexy, dramatic eyes and soft, kissable lips. The best-selling bronzer creates a perfectly sun-kissed hue--like you just returned from the Riviera! The eye shadow duo highlights and contours for eyes that stand out. Amp up the drama with a sweep of waterproof eyeliner--subtle, smoky, or a you-can-do cat eye. Lips get a whisper of sheer, protective color with SPF 15 lip balm.
The ultimate full-face collection of top-selling products and shades from Laura Geller Beauty! Spackle® Under Make-Up Primer preps skin to a perfect canvas and allows makeup to apply more smoothly and wear longer. Spackle® and Baked Brûlée Blush are infused with Centella Asiatica and white tea extracts. Baked products begin as liquid pigments and are then baked and hand finished by Italian artisans. Italian Marble Lipstick delivers balm-like texture.
Treat skin to the best of both worlds with this makeup/skin care hybrid formula. The mousse-like liquid foundation hydrates skin while providing natural-looking, sheer-to-medium coverage and SPF 25 UVA/UVB protection. Skin is nourished with mineral water, vitamin E, goji berry, and an antioxidant complex. With a veil-like texture and velvet matte finish to blur the look of fine lines and wrinkles, Skin Elements leaves skin radiant, even, and healthy-looking--the elements of sun-protected beauty! Available in 6 shades!
A moisturizing lip stain in a range of beautiful shades that flatter any complexion. The Lasting Love Lip Stain is a gel-like crayon that glides on lips to impart lustrous, matte, buildable color. Laura Geller Beauty has reinvented the rules of lip stains by combining deep moisture and long-lasting wear--for the perfect pout that lasts.
It's your secret weapon for flawless skin! Whether you want an easy-to-use, oil-absorbing finishing powder or a natural, no-makeup look, this one-shade-fits-all powder delivers undetectable color correction. Mint green pigments minimize the look of redness, flecks of lavender brighten sallow tones, and soft peach hues illuminate, helping your skin look instantly healthier and more even.
A modern and indispensable colored lip balm that protects with broad-spectrum SPF 15 coverage. A mix of vitamin E, mango butter, and coconut oil help to nourish lips, while a hint of semi-gloss color creates a natural, sporty look. Combined with SPF 15 broad-spectrum protection, each Sun Kissed Lip Balm is the perfect recipe for a beautiful look.
The ultimate eyelid primer to create the perfect canvas for color lay-down that won't budge for up to 16 hours of wear.
