Depends. I even like expressive make-up, such as a girl having her whole eyelid painted blue or brown lipstick. In fact, green looks good too. Actually, even floral motifs painted on the cheek look good when done right. What looks bad is tasteless make-up or one that resembles a prostitute's, which happens much of the time.
Not a guy, so I can't claim to represent men, but I'd like to pitch in my approval for this.
As a woman, I notice also that men pay me more mind when I'm wearing make-up. I also love make-up as a form of expression and artistry, rather than as a way to attract men, so sometimes (even if I rarely wear more than a foundation) I wear bright or daring make-up to see what I can come up with and to celebrate being a female, and it's never gotten negative comments. My only problem with make-up was when a then-boyfriend asked me why I "always wear that Rocky Horror Picture Show" make-up. The trouble was, on that day I wasn't wearing make-up. I'm just really pale. :blush:
Anyways, I'm always in favor of guys who don't rip on make-up too much. I do it for myself when I do it, not to attract men, so it's not like I'm practicing deception. Also, if I don't wear my foundation I get terrible break-outs. It's counter-intuitive, but I have rather sensitive skin so it needs a little protection. I also use moisturizer and sunscreen.
