Anyone who has tasked themselves with organizing knows that you don't get from "determined" to "satisfied with life-changing results" without a lot of inner turmoil. Especially if you follow Marie Kondo's tips from her bestselling novel, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up."

Choosing a lipstick that works with dark skin tones can feel like a challenge. It may seem easier to stick to the plum and berry shades you know look fantastic with your complexion, instead of worrying about whether you can pull off an orange lip. (Spoiler alert: you definitely can.) But makeup --and lipstick especially, in our opinion -- should be fun, and more about what makes you feel gorgeous than sticking to a set of rules.   read more
