Once upon a time I thought nude lipsticks were just for blanquitas. That's until I saw how gorgeous Camila Alves looked sporting this shade. In case you didn't know, I'm kind of obsessed with Camila Alves. She's gorgeous and because she has my skin tone and shares similar facial features (like thick brows), I like to look to her for beauty inspiration. The girl is proof that nude lips do work for darker skin tones!

For medium or dark skinned chicas, finding the right shade of nude lipstick could be tough. I have semi-plump, long lips that I swear look better with color. You'll almost always catch me rocking either hot pink, soft pink or some coral shade on my pout. But sometimes a girl just wants to look natural and slathering on transparent lip balm or gloss doesn't always cut it. And after seeing how brown-skinned Latina celebs like Camila Alves, Joan Smalls or Zoe Saldana look with nude lipstick, I realized it was time I finally give the trend a shot.

I did a little digging and found not one, not two but 7 gorgeous fall nude shades perfect for any woman with darker skin. Check out some of my favorite ones below!
