Blush Beauty Collective is home to a team of gifted makeup artists and hair stylists.

"Whether it's a big event, like your wedding, or just a special date night, I want you to feel like you...just a little polished."


Hi. I’m Laura Bratz, owner of Blush Beauty Collective – home to a team of gifted makeup artists and hair stylists centrally located in Portland, Connecticut.

I have assembled a team of dedicated, uber-talented hair stylists and makeup artists to work with bridal parties of all sizes. As a team, Blush Beauty Collective is dedicated to ensuring our clients experience flawless results.

*Originally named Blush by Laura, in 2023 I relaunched my company as Blush Beauty Collective – rebranding my thriving business to better include a team concept approach. Rest assured, my clients will continue to receive the same amazing experiences, just under a new and improved name.

Meet Laura

Laura Bratz

founder & principal stylist

I am a licensed makeup artist and lash technician, having traveled around Connecticut…and all of New England since 2011!

Along with my love for makeup and bridal services, I also offer lash extensions, lash lifts and tints, brow lamination, brow tinting, and spray tanning services.

I have been fortunate to have my work featured in amazing publications like The Knot Magazine, The Connecticut Bride Magazine, Love Inc., Wedding Boston, The Coordinated Bride Blog, Ultimate Wedding Magazine, and Borrowed and Blue.

The number one thing my clients tell me is that they don’t wear makeup because they don’t know how to; and that’s where I come in! My passion is to offer EVERYDAY beauty services for the everyday woman! 

Need to learn how to apply a 10-minute face? I’ll teach you! Looking for a new makeup or skincare line? I can make recommendations! Want a golden bronzed tan for that party you’re going to this weekend? I’ve got just what you need!
