The other day I had a lingerie photoshoot! I've been doing these fun, sexy, maxim-style photoshoots for fun since I was 18!!! Since the playboy mansion days, I totally miss those parties btw, such amazing memories! Rip Hef :( I take these photos pretty much just to show myself that "I still got it," lol, and to have photos of myself to look back on! One day I'll look back at these photos and have memories of that specific period of time and wish I looked like that again. Anyways, so there's always been this MAJOR struggle with PASTIES for me. I told myself that one day I'll just invent pasties that are super epic, that literally look like skin, so I don't have to edit out the nipples (well my editors have to edit them). I mean, I would literally leave them out but the comments section would get a little crazy!
I used to always buy my pasties at Macy's. The cute flower petals ones and they always had the closest skin tone to mine. But when shoot day came, there was a HUGE flower covering my boob under my intricate lacey bra and sometimes the pasties were shimmery and the light would bounce back and the pasty stood out more than the bra. Some of the pasties say they are "re-usable" up to 24 times, but when you have a spray tan, tons of Fenty Beauty body lava, Patrick Ta Beauty body oil & sparkles, they work once. Especially if you go clubbing with them and they get a little champagne shower on them, they are toast.
So I found these Nippies Lace Pasties on Amazon, they are $10 for 2 pairs! (4 of them), and I cut them into a small circle just to cover the nipple and stick them on. It works better than photoshop and I found my new favorite pasty. Also if you cut them small like that, it won't ruin your $100 spray tan! I find it justifiable to cut them because the other pasties I used to get were $30!
And that's it for my boob hack!
