Here in Ireland, we don’t get many opportunities to work on our natural tan; most of us need a bit of help from a bottle. It’s so important to know the quality of the brand you’re using, especially if you’re using it for your wedding! There’s nothing worse than walking down the aisle looking orange or with streaks down your arms. No, thank you! Bellamianta is a new brand that’s based and manufactured in Ireland and is made using clean, nutritious ingredients. Their ultra-smart hydration system ensures that the light formulas are working to hydrate the skin. As a result, the tan wears off evenly and not in those awkward patches that we’ve all come to know! It dries in 60 seconds, leaving us with a streak-free summer glow. The natural ingredients work with the skins natural melanin to provide a perfectly natural, golden tone every time which becomes water resistant and will last up to 7 days.


Bellamianta is used by our pals in The Lash Lounge.  “We know how important it is to keep that dream dress from getting any tan marks. That is why we spent a good 6 months researching before we decided which brand of tan we wanted to offer. After trying out bundles of brands, we chose the luxurious Bellamianta range. It is filled with natural moisturisers, making it suitable for dry, irritated skin.”


The Lash Lounge’s Alana shared with us some simple but crucial tips to best prepare for your pre-wedding spray tan!

–     Remember to exfoliate at least 48 hours before your tan using an oil free exfoliator

     –     Moisturise your skin daily
     –     Shower before your tan and avoid applying oil, deodorant or moisturiser on day of tanning
     –     Do not shave/wax the day of tanning as the tan will sit in open pores
     –     Wear loose clothing
     –     Don’t forget your flip flops!
“If tanning at home, most above rules apply. Have a cold shower just before applying your self tan. It will shrink all of your pores and reduce the chance of them getting blocked. For the hard to reach areas, we stock the new ‘Got Your Back’ wonder mitt from Bronzie. It will tan your back and other hard to reach areas in half the time and without the help of anyone.

Bellamianta really does sound like the way to go. Have you tried it yet? If you haven’t, drop in to The Lash Lounge and test it out!
