City Pulse

By Joanna Pompilio

Sure you WANT to plan the wedding of your dreams, but you know….you have an all consuming job, commitments and of course a very hectic life that’s crazy enough without planning something a team of 20 should be employed for.

Luckily, Mary Kay is stepping in to help calm even the most anxious bride with perhaps the most important part of her nuptials. NO, not finding the right groom, finding the right look! Mary Kay has launched a bridal component of the popular Virtual Makeup feature on

The Mary Kay Bridal Virtual Makeover can save time and money, not to mention hours of stress experimenting with looks that just are not quite right. By uploading a photo, a soon to be Mrs. can virtually test out makeup trends, hairstyles, hair colors and bridal accessories all in the comfort of her PJ’s at home. This little wonder is not just for brides alone. Mothers of the bride and bridesmaids can all utilize this tool as well as the six specially created makeup artist recommendations.

Looks can be emailed to bridal party members, making coordinating across the country or even across town easier than catching the bouquet. Plus, who needs a pricey stylist? That extra cash should really be put towards an open bar anyway.

Visit and click the “Virtual Makeover” link on the left side of the screen to begin.
