Beautified Designs’ story all started with Lize’s vision of a beautiful and happy future full of people contented and satisfied with themselves. This vision is shared by her longtime partner, now soon to be husband, Denver. The couple used to work together in beautifying brides and groom at weddings. In fact, that’s where they actually met. These two beauty experts simply jive in everything. Lize always wanted to share all of her beauty tips and tricks. She wanted to make a journal of everything she learns in the field. And she actually did! Of course, everything was with the help of Denver! Get to know more about the beauty experts below!
Lize Gonzales – Beauty & Makeup Artist
Hey guys! I’m Lize and I’m your beauty expert. I always wanted to write a journal of all the things I learn in my field. Growing up, information about beauty and hygiene simply weren’t very available to me so I promised my 12-year-old self that one day, I’ll make all beauty and personal care information available to everyone!
Making this online journal for beauty trends, tools, and techniques would not have been easy if it weren’t for Denver. I write as many tips, tricks, and guides about makeup, nail care, and skin care, while occasionally sharing my favorite beauty products and tools. On the other hand, Denver took care of all the hairstyle guides for me.
[UPDATE] Denver and I are engaged and we now co-own a beauty salon that focuses on providing the best nail, make-up, & hairstyling services for party/event goers. Occasionally, we still accept wedding gigs, movie-set preparation, and events preparation were we fly all over the world to prepare and help men and women look their best, whether it is in our hometown or on the set of the next blockbuster. Message me about your beauty concerns. I’m here to help you succeed;)
Denver Welgesteld – Hair Stylist
Hello dear readers. You already know how Lize and I met but you do not know yet how we lasted. Alright, I’m not gonna share our love story. This isn’t a love advice blog. Anyways, here it goes. You are practically asking for it since you are still reading my bio.
I met Liz when one bride booked us to beautify her at her wedding. It was absolutely the best moment that happened in my life. Since then, we have shared clients and have grown our skills in the industry together. We are the perfect team, that’s how our friends call it. One day she shared all of her dreams and vision with me. She told me she wanted to write a blog that records all of the things she learned in our line of work. To her surprise, I told her it was something I always wanted to do too!
Without further ado, I phoned my best friend John so help us get started with our blog because we literally had zero knowledge about it. He even got his wife Chantal to help us test and review some of the beauty products. I wrote most of the hairstyles and braid content while occasionally sharing the hairstyling products and tools I personally use. If you have questions about hairstyling, message me anytime. (And if you need a love advice, I’m here to help!)
John Hutchinson – Content Manager
John here! Denver has been my best friend since grade school. I always knew he was gonna be a successful hairstylist. I remember he literally cut my hair in grade school without my permission while I was asleep in their humble abode. And no, it wasn’t a good haircut at all! But one can really see his passion for hairstyling at that very young age. Those were the good old days that never gets old when brought up. Too bad I don’t have any hair now for him to style.
So much about the past. Let me introduce myself to you guys. I’m John Hutchinson. My wife and I have been running an extremely successful jewelry and accessory empire. We have been running our own store and blog when he called me to help him start. With our knowledge in content creation, we were able to get Liz and Denver get started with their own blog.
Since Denver’s phone call, I have stayed here to constantly guide them in providing the best beauty guides for everyone. I must say, they have really grown with their craft. I am also helping them market their beauty salon and beauty store.
Chantal Patterson – Product Testing Volunteer
Hi! My name is Chantal. Aside from my love for jewelry, I also enjoy testing products with Lize. It’s basically our past time when the guys are away. We know how important it is to try products first before writing any recommendations so we really take this past time seriously. I’m basically her guinea pig. But it’s not bad at all. I get free beauty sessions with her all the time. Who doesn’t want free beauty sessions, right?
When I am not testing products with Liz, I am running a jewelry store with my husband John. We constantly travel the world to find the latest products, negotiate the best prices and find the best quality for our community.
