  • You can't use the same master page ,page layout in contentDB wise.

    You may automate using powershell or create a new feature using VS to add the same set of contents to change the design (Masterpage, layouts, css, ...etc) in each site collections.

  • Hi Tweety,

    You can implement feature and deploy feature in your farm. You can activate and deactivate for applying master pages and corresponding css wherever you want. For example, if you have site under site collection and do not want apply master page, then deactivate your custom page. Refer below URL for preparing your master page as feature.
