First two photos via http://iam-desire.tumblr.com/
Hey guys! So back in January (in my brunette days) I was asked by Desire Kaniki. to assist with styling a shoot for photographer YIN. The above photos are some of the behind the scene action that went on. It was one of the first times I ever got to go on set for a real photo shoot so of course I was super excited. Going on set made me feel all cool and sophisticated and mature and shit (professional, I know). All I gotta say is I was really privileged to have had this experience and hope to do more stuff like this in the future. To see some of the final photos click here.
READ BEFORE WATCHING:
As you know my full name is Paolina Alexandra Russo. Some people (mostly my family and close friends) call me by my first name Paolina. But I am also called by my second name Alexandra. It kind of gets confusing, almost like I'm leading some sort of double life like Hannah Montana. Just so you guys don't get confused, when Desire refers to Alexandra in the video, hes talking about me, Paolina.

I asked our makeup artist Tami El Sombati to work some of her makeup magic on me to look nice for a commercial audition I had later that day. I don't know how she did it but she got my skin to glow, a glow in which I have tried to recreate at home with my crappy drug store makeup kit. But its just doesn't happen for me, I don't posses her fairy makeup abilities. My friend Haley got some video of it going on. My sister constantly makes fun of me for the "over dramatic" face/eye thingy I give at about 0:14. Im just an over dramatic person in general so she shouldn't be too surprised.
Hope you guys are having a good weekend! I took some awesome photos earlier this week so expect an outfit post soon :) Love ya!
