A lot of the time, guys don't know what "natural" is, because they have probably never seen a girl without makeup in their life (even if she isn't wearing "makeup", she might still be wearing tinted moisturizer/BB cream, a natural shade of blush, clear brow gel, one coat of mascara, a lip stain etc).
Here are some pictures of girls before and after make-up. What do guys prefer?

Depends on the situation. For everyday life, I like light makeup. Just basic stuff to look "fresh" and "awake."
For evening wear, I like a little more daring makeup. Smokey eyes, a little color on the lips. The one thing I don't like is bright red lipstick. I think darker reds are sexy, but bright red has always been a turnoff for me. I know it's classic, but I've never liked it.
I also like the occasional weird shade - purple lipstick, green eyeshadow, etc.0
