STELLAR promotion: We got a peek at the latest campaign from Bellamianta, plus all their tanning tips...
Bellamianta is a favourite in STELLAR Towers for achieving a fab golden glow – and we were only delighted to get a sneak peek at their latest stunning campaign.
Shot on location in Kuramathi Maldives, the photos are making us dream of a holiday in paradise. And as a special treat, Bellamianta are offering 20% off sitewide with the code GLOWDARKER20. You glow, girl!
When it comes to tan in a flash, with particular regard to legs, you want both a gorgeous colour that’s easy to apply but also a formula that will smooth over your skin for a flawless effect. This perfect product does both and can be worn alone or over existing tan.
Top tip: This product is perfect for minimising the appearance of cellulite, blemishes and imperfections, giving your skin a more flawless appearance.
For this look, the Dark Self Tanning Lotion was left on to develop overnight and applied using the Bellamianta Luxury Double Sided Velvet Mitt (€9.99) for a seamless application. Then the Skin Perfecting Instant Tan (€18) was applied on top.
Top tip: For a smooth and flawless appearance, apply Bellamianta’s Skin Perfecting Instant Tan, packed with coconut oil which is intensely hydrating and an excellent moisturiser.
‘Diana’ one piece swimsuit, €141, Ochie Swim
Achieve a bronzed hue in only a matter of hours and choose your own shade: left on for two hours you’ll get a light tan, three hours medium, and more than four hours will be dark.
Top tip: To achieve the darkest result, leave guide colour on overnight, then shower until water runs clear. Pat skin dry and you will be left with a beautiful, golden olive tan that is transfer and water-resistant for up to a week.
‘Izabel’ one-piece swimsuit, €83.16, TJ Swim
White swimsuit and false tan? No problem! Crystal Clear, the first ever rapid crystal-clear self-tanning mousse on the market is as hydrating as water; consider it a drink for your skin whilst delivering a radiant, olive glow.
Top tip: It’s transfer-resistant from the moment it goes on. With no guide colour, there’s no risk of tanning stains on clothes or bedsheets.
‘Melbourne’ white bikini top and bottoms, €120.85 each, Melissa Odabash
This darker tan is bursting with natural extracts making it the ultimate skin treatment too – it’s free from parabens, harsh chemicals, perfume, alcohol, GMO, animal derivatives, sulfates, silicones and petrochemicals. This look was finished with the Bellamianta BeBellaBronzed Dry Shimmering Oil (€25) to illuminate the skin, giving you a shimmering sun-kissed glow. This oil can be used on the face, body and hair.
Top tip: Apply the oil using the Bellamianta Mini Luxury Mitt (€6.99) and pat gently onto high points, like cheek bones and shoulders, to create a soft focus highlight.
‘Polynesia’ bikini top, €114, and bottoms, €108, Heidi Klein
Use as a sumptuous daily moisturiser to hydrate and nourish whilst you extend and maintain your gorgeous glow. This look was finished using the new Bellamianta Skin Perfecting Instant Tan, which gives instant colour, coverage and illuminating 24-hour wear.
Top tip: Worn alone or over a natural or fake tan, add oomph to your bronzed skin whilst nourishing and hydrating.
Bikini top and matching bottoms, €119, Ochie Swim
A lightweight, liquid formula that is not only easy to apply but dries in 60 seconds, Liquid Gold leaves skin instantly bronzed thanks to its golden guide colour before developing into a beachy tanned hue.
Top tip: Ensure you have exfoliated your skin and wax or shave at least 24 hours before tanning. The Bellamianta Double-Sided Exfoliating Glove (€9) is perfect for seamless home tanning preparation.
