The Ultimate Tan - Bellamianta - Beautiful Aspirations
Monday, 13 June 2016 | Admin
Bellamianta is the newest and most exciting brand which is based and manufactured right here in Ireland. With Bellamianta taking Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook by storm with bloggers and celebs like Suzanne Jackson of sosueme.ie, Tara O' Farrell of tara-makeup.com, Nicola Hughes of Made in Chelsea and Michell Regazolli Stone of MRS Make Up all swooning about it we knew it was the perfect addition to Sculpt Cosmetics offering!
Bellamianta provides clean, nutritious, luxury tanning products formulated with the cleanest ingredients without compromising on performance. The ultra-smart hydration system ensures that while the tan dries in in 60 seconds, the light formulas are still working to hydrate the skin ensuring that the tan wears of evenly with none of the dreaded snakeskin effect. Bellamianta’s signature guide colours combined with the 60 second fast dry system mean that all of our tans are ready to wear and will develop over 2-4 hours with no transfer on to clothes.
There are 4 products in total - the Bellamianta Self Tan Lotion which comes in Medium, Bellamianta Rapid Mousse which is in Dark, Professional Spray Tan Solution and the Luxury Velvet Mitt!
Bellamianta Lotion in Medium €19.95
This tan is simply wonderful! The lotion is medium in colour but it really give you the ultimate glow, I apply it using my Luxury Velvet Mitt from Bellamianta. I was honestly a bit unimpressed with the mitt at first but once I started applying the lotion I saw how it glided on and gave me an instant smooth and even colour, with guess what - not dirty brown hand. It really is odourless by the way, I always smell it if I am hot and guess what - no smell, nada, zilch! For best application I start with my legs, working up my body. I actually don't use the mitt for my feet, face, elbows and knees but I use my stipple foundation brush as I always, always get tan stuck and clumpy here, especially on my feet and no on wants terribly tanned toes! I wore this tan on my wedding day and got so many compliments, if you want a natural glow that wears off well then your Bellamianta lotion is what you need!
Bellamianta Rapid Mousse in Dark €22.95
Looking for a deep, but natural bronze? Well this mousse is what you are after. The ladies at Bellamianta knew what they were at when they developed his odourless deep mousse to give you the best bronze in town. Unlike other mousse this tan has a hydrating formula so it does not dry you skin, it glides on without causing friction or catching dryness. I applied this starting form my elegs upwards and using my foundation stipple brush at my tricky bits of feet, knees, elbows and face. I like to sleep in my tan but if you are after a lighter tone or are simply in a hurry, you can shower after 2 hours and get a lighter bronze. This wears off perfectly too, my hand did fade quicker but they are in water so much with my jobs that is to be expected.
Bellamianta Luxury Mitt €9.95
This mitt is the ultimate tanning accessory! I was a a bit dubious at the beginning as I thought sure any old mitt will do - that is not the case with Bellamianta tan. This mitt is velvet smooth and that is exactly how it lets the tan glide not your skin, the velvet flows over the skin allowing you to easily work the tan into your skin. I would recommend using this mitt for all tanning treats going forward as it is just the ultimate in luxury!
Here are the key good points on this fab tan Bellamianta!
- Dries in 60 seconds
- Odour neutralising technology- No more fake tan smell!!
- Develops in 2-4 hrs
- Instant Ready to wear guide colour
- Signature golden olive tones
- Streak free/easy to use formulas
- Transfer & water resistant

- Even wear wear- No more dreaded snakeskin
Enjoy that BellaBabe Glow with Sculpt & Bellamianta,

Chanel, Nars, Clarins and Benefit – these are just a few of the international cosmetic brands that every Irish woman stockpiles into her beauty bag. Last week, I interviewed Suzie O’Neill, creator of AYU Make Up who illustrated to us that home grown, Irish beauty tools could be manufactured to equally as high a standard as their foreign counterparts so, what about make up itself?

t is, dare I say it officially summer season, which means one thing for us Irish folk; heading off to the airport to hop on a plane to catch some guaranteed actual sunshine, that we just are not likely to get here in Ireland. I personally love getting away but I hate being without all my beauty treats, which for me is make up, body lotions, perfumes, hair products, body mists, tan, mitts an the list goes on and on.

Here at Sculpt I love watching trends, especially make up and beauty trends. I think I have some highlight and strobe running through my veins, I am just attracted to pretty beauty things! You know how it is though, one day something is red hot and you can't get you hands on it then in a flash they aren't quite so hot. Remember sleep in rollers anyone?

Here at Sculpt Cosmetics we love skin care, not just skincare but really good skin care. We love a lot of ranges here at Sculpt Studio but I especially have a little soft spot for Dermalogica. I have used this range since I started out in make up 12 years ago, so I know it pretty well and I know what works for me, but I have lots of clients who have not used it and are a bit scared by the price tag of indulging on yet another skincare range that promises to fix their skin. Dermalogica have the perfect answer - a Skin Kit that contains minis of the best of Dermalogica according to your skin types, for a much more affordable price tag of €33.20!
