Hola! I’m Any Gonzalez, a mom, wife, makeup artist, entrepreneur, fashion and beauty blogger. I was born and raised in Venezuela. At the age of 4, I started to dance ballet and after a couple of years, I was a dancer of one of the best dance academies with Maryorie Flores. One of the best experiences of my life!
I quickly started to appear dancing, modeling, acting and singing in TV Shows, Miss Venezuela (one of the world’s top beauty pageants), TV Commercials and more. Eventually, at the age of 16, I was one of the backup dancers for many famous artists in Venezuela, including Latin Grammy winners "Chino & Nacho".
By 2010, I came to Houston to pursue a degree and continue with my passion in dance. While studying Media Production in the University of Houston, I met the love of my life, Gustavo, and, in my senior year 2014, we found out I was expecting my baby girl, Lucia. I have the cutest graduation pictures, I was 8 months pregnant!
Makeup has always been part of my life, I remember doing my makeup for the shows and my makeup had to be very artistic. My friends always asked me to do their makeup because they loved the ending result. Even, they mentioned why I wasn't doing it professionally. That was the first time I thought about becoming a freelance makeup artist. It's been 5 years since I started doing it professionally. My passion is doing weddings and quinceañeras.
Also, I have my own beauty brand "Anygo Cosmetics" and I recently released my new eyeshadow palette collection named "Sweet Caribbean".
But... I haven't always been this motivated. In 2015, I was involved in a car accident, I was 5 months pregnant with my second baby when an intoxicated driver hit our car. Unfortunately, we lost the baby and I had to be taken via helicopter to the hospital because I had internal bleeding and was in the brink of death. This incident, made me realize that God gave me a second opportunity in life. My mission now is to help women raise and improve their self-esteem through makeup. I have found this career to be very fulfilling. I love when people look at themselves in the mirror and feel beautiful and powerful inside out. This is the reason why I decided to open Anygo Beauty Studio: to empower people and help them achieve the look of their dreams.
