MUA Madhuri Shana Bertram
When one takes an artist from behind a canvas and then puts them in front of the canvas…Oh the magic one can create.
In this fourth installment of Dreamheart Spotlight, I was fortunate to get an interview with the artistic, versatile, and alluring, Malu. She began this path by chance when a friend asked her to model for her make-up artistry portfolio. Malu is a former dancer and singer with an eye for framing interesting pictures. This entertainer has found modeling to be an artistic outlet.
“I like contributing to beautiful photography,” she said, “I also found runway to be a type of performing. I certainly feel like I am taking on a role and playing off the audience's mood; it's fun!”

In spite of not having former training and not represented by an agent, Malu still believes she’s fit for being a model. ” I am aware of how my body looks and what poses are good for creating certain lines. I am comfortable in front of a camera and on stage, and I think a successful model needs both.” Malu’s eyes have been called “exotic” and this feature sets her apart from other models.
Malu’s goals as a model include continuing to make art for fun with the hopes of more paid gigs and more runway shows. She aspires to model in commercial projects as that would be a new challenge. “There are so many great designers and I would love to contribute to their success by modeling their clothes.”
Malu does not have a strict diet, nor does she follow a rigorous work out routine. “I love food!” she exclaimed. Malu does yoga twice a week, but her primary method of physical activity is, surprisingly, work. “I am on my feet a lot as a server and I feel like I get a decent upper body workout lifting heavy plates all day long!”
Malu is frequently available to model locally and she is willing to travel a few hours from where she lives with ample notice.
