BeauBronz Red Carpet Event

TV Presenter Naomi Isted

I’ve been such a busy bunny in the run up to Easter I haven’t had a chance to blog about last Wednesday’s Red carpet event at the Millennium hotel in Knightsbridge for the launch of Beau Bronze’s new line of home self tanning products Abi O.Myself and our make-up artist, party loving lovely, Jules Cardozo Marsh headed down to film alongside OK TV for Harley Street Beauty to get as many tips as possible for the ideal celebrity self tan.

It would of course have been rude not to indulge in cupcakes and free drinks but we were there to talk tanning and beauty tips so we had to get down to business and find out from the people in the know all the tips we could for our Harley Street Beauty viewers.

The lovely and very funny Lizzie Cundy hosted the night and can you believe how jammie Jules managed to win herself a £250 hair extensions voucher for one of London’s top celebrity hair extensions salons Tatiana Extensions. I am well Jell Jules…. Not forgetting Pia Michi’s gorgeous pink creation on owner Abi O herself.

“Ever wanted to achieve that natural sun kissed look but didn’t want to go in the sun?
BeauBronz is a little secret passed on amongst friends in the media and beauty industry. There is no substitute! Award Winning BeauBronz is an environmentally aware company, with a progressive approach to the beauty industry. They offer fake tan fans like myself natural spray tanning solutions of the highest quality, none of which are tested on animals.”

“BeauBronz seeks to provide natural spray tanning solutions that contain luxurious, paraben free and certified organic ingredients. Their tanning products are the finest since they are free from harsh chemicals, drying alcohol and the best bit of all they are odourless.” Odourless really how can it be?

I cannot deny the fact that for the last decade I have been a fake tan addict and have tried and tested every product out there. Of course with time on your hands and a quality brand its not too hard to get your fake tan right but as a busy working mum with very little time for pampering how does one get a perfect fake tan without the telltale signs of streaky bacon legs, tangoed faces and two-tone hands? Let alone that smell that the hubbies always complain about.

Well after trying and testing my goody bag, (thanks for that Abi) I can honestly say I think I’m in love or heaven. As I am a bit of a seasoned pro at applying my fake tan without the tell tale signs I genuinely didn’t think it would ever be possible to hide that smell, even the best brands have it. But yet somehow Abi Oleck has created this splendid product that actually does what it states on the bottle and gives you a fab sunkissed tan minus the dreaded fake tan smell. Not only that but it feels so light and soft on the skin like a really expensive moisturizer I never even felt like I was wearing a fake tan but received many compliments from family and friends ‘wow your looking healthy’. So can I just say well done Abi on such a fab product, I love it.

Abi Oleck or Abi O as she is known in celebrity circles is the celebrities and TVs shows favorite tan artist and her clients include Duncan James, Miss Great Britain, Jayne Torvill, Lizzie Cundy, Holly Oaks and Eastenders stars to name a few. Abi and her team are also the official spray tanners and product of choice for ITV’s 2010 Dancing on Ice and has been invited back again this year (2012).

Abi has appeared on This Morning, Celebrity Scissor hands, Promzillas, Tantastic, QVC, BBC and many more great TV shows! Abi has also set up distribution and ethical training of tanning in USA, Holland and Germany. To date over 100,000 people have been spray tanned with BeauBronz! Now Abi has launched the BeauBronz home range, which already over 20,000 people are raving about! So who better to go to for tanning tips than Abi O herself? We will be filming a tanning segment in the nest few weeks with Abi for Harley Street Beauty so make sure you stay tuned on how to get the natural look without the mango tango effect.
Queen of self-tanning Abi will explain all the tricks of the trade and why her products provide a unique natural looking tan. Thanks for the invite Abi it was a great night but we also look forward to filming soon.

After eating and drinking plenty it was time to get to work and start chatting to the people in the know for tips and advice on tanning and beauty, We started the night interviewing Gary Cockerill makeup artist to the stars. What a sweetie. Gary Cockerill’s expertise,
versatility and talent have established him as one of the UK’s top make-up artists, so who better to talk to for Harley Street Beauty to talk tanning, makeup and Botox tips than Gary himself. Over the past 15 years Gary has established a vast collection of celebrity clients and his work regularly featuring in celebrity & lifestyle magazines, music videos, high fashion glossies, advertising campaigns and on stage & TV. His client list is like a celebrity who’s who! Anyway girls make sure you tune into the show to her more from Gary and hopefully we will see more of him in Season 2. Thanks Gary your fab on camera.


After our chat with Gary we chatted with skating legends Torvill and Dean Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean former Olympic and World champions to get their thoughts on tanning, makeup and of course exercise. It was lovely to meet them both they were so sweet.


This led Jules and I to meet and talk exercise, nutrition and interestingly Attitude magazine with the former TV gladiators who will hopefully also be joining us soon on the show to advice us on all aspects of nutrition and exercise. All I can say is oh my can Caroline Pearce be my personal trainer please she has a body to die for and good luck Jenny Pacey other wise known as Enigma in the Olympic Qualifiers. Not forgetting Gladiator DOOM…

Thanks for a great night Abi O @BeauBronz
