Meet the Founder/Lead Artist

Danielle Blaquera began her career in Southern California in 2010. Studying Visual Arts as a youth she thrives in creative settings. In 2012, she moved to Nashville to expand her clientele. When she landed in the south she jumped on tour with "(Kissed You) Good Goodnight" singers, Gloriana as their hair and makeup team. In between runs you would find her working with Raelynn, Summer Pardi, Brittney Kelley and the like. Her work can be found gracing red carpets such as CMT Awards, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, American Music Awards, Latin Grammys and more!

With her skills and expertise, she quickly made a name for herself in the south. In 2022, Pure Essence Beauty Collective was born. With a full team of Hair and Makeup artists (better known as the "Beauty Collective") she has become a trailblazer in the wedding beauty industry. Her team has been featured in BRIDES, People Magazine, Martha Stuart Weddings and more! Each team member is carefully vetted through a rigorous audition process and continuing education and 1:1 training so you have the peace of mind knowing that you are in good hands. 


Pure Essence Beauty Collective is exclusively comprised of Luxury Beauty Professionals in Southern California offering our clients premium services. Every member of the Collective is heavily vetted and has gone through an audition process to ensure quality of work.

 We believe that the Pure Essence of a woman's beauty comes from within and strive to uphold high standards, accountability, professionalism and we feel our team is a reflection of that✨
