When speaking about working with Bellamianta Luxury Tanning for a second time, Maura Higgins said “I am honestly so excited and so happy I’ve had the chance to create a second collection with Bellamianta. I have definitely gone for a more glowy vibe this time! We’ve been stuck inside for so long now we’re allowed out so we can show off our glowing skin! The Bellamianta team is amazing and they just make the process of creating a new range so much fun. I love coming up with new ideas for the range and they let me be so creative, which I love because it really makes it feel like my own when I can bring my ideas into a reality. It’s like a dream come true, I never would have imagined I would have my own range with them when I started working with them all those years ago, I still can’t believe it!
Ever since I was young I’ve loved a tan, it just makes me feel so good and when I first heard of Bellamianta I had to try! Their tan is just the best, it’s such amazing quality for the price and just feels so luxurious. Like many people as well I hate the chore of scrubbing off my tan but Bellamianta lasts so long and comes off so easily, it just makes life easier! So of course I wanted to work with the brand. As well as the fact they're Irish, that's definitely a plus!”
