Have you seen our One Dress, Six Styles video? If not, check it out and get inspired as one gorgeous Caroline DeVillo gown is transformed to complement six distinct wedding themes.

The jewelry, hair accessories and shoes certainly change the dress up from one style to the next, but another major factor is the makeup! We can’t stop gushing over the six gorgeous beauty looks featured in this video, from bright and bold to soft and subtle. We tapped into the experts in our stores, the Beauty Stylists, for their advice on what products and tips create these looks. For more beauty ideas, check out our Beauty 24/7 blog.

Seascape Goddess: It’s all about softness here, with feminine pink blush and nude lips. Beauty Stylist Rachel Valdez in San Antonio recommends: Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Color in ‘Angelic’ and Bobbi Brown Blush in ‘Pale Pink’.

Mod Muse: The nod to retro comes from the bold brows and bright lip in the perfect shade of pink. Beauty Stylist Iris Brostowicz in Chicago recommends: stila ‘long wear’ liquid lip color in ‘petal’ and Anastasia ‘Brow Wiz’ Mechanical Brow Pencil in ‘Medium Ash’.

Classic Sophisticate: There’s something about a perfect red lip color and shiny gold eyelids that instantly boosts confidence. Beauty Stylist Jennifer Kochenour in King of Prussia recommends: Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in ‘Pirate’ and NARS Duo Eyeshadow in ‘Alhambra’.

Dramatic Starlet: Hello, lips! For “look at me” makeup, go for a bold, dark lipstick with porcelain skin. Beauty Stylist Iris Brostowicz recommends: MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in ‘Bittersweet’ and MAC Pro Longwear Lip Crème in ‘Made To Last’.

Rustic Belle: Here it’s all about a bronzy glow with neutral lips and eyes for a barely there look. Rachel Valdez recommends: Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in ‘Golden Light’ and Trish McEvoy ‘Instant Solutions’ Beauty Balm SPF 35.

Boho Dreamer: The boho girl wears little else besides shades of brown eyeshadow and mascara to make her style laid-back but luxe. Beauty Stylist Rachel Valdez recommends: Dior ‘5 Couleurs Designer’ Eyeshadow Palette in Amber Design #708  and YSL ‘Volume Effet Faux Cils’ Mascara in ‘Rich Brown’.

One song. One dance floor. One hundred Nordstrom employees.  Two hip-hop stars.

If you think this sounds like the makings for a rockin’ party, we’d have to agree. And while it may have started at 9 a.m. instead of 9 p.m. (and was technically considered work!), we had a really, really, really good time. There’s nothing better than filming a wedding dance video with your friends and co-workers—except when Macklemore & Ryan Lewis make a cameo appearance to lend some well-dressed style and hot moves to the scene!

Now go behind the scenes to see the making of the video and get a glimpse into the Best. Day. Ever.

Oh, and did we mention there was a photo booth on set? We had so much fun hamming it up for the camera, we just had to make a lookbook out of the shots! Check out our employees modeling looks from our wedding suites here!
