I definitely notice make up, I don't know why girls think it's invisible, hah. I prefer a natural face, whether you think it's stunning or not, but I won't mind at all if you like to wear a little bit. Like you said some girls have makeup plastered to their face ... very unattractive...you don't want to wake up with a different girl in bed and goop all over your pillow.
Yes, we do. When I was younger I didn't I thought that was just how they looked to begin with but as I get older I notice it a lot more, especially if she does a good job of it. Yeah some girls end up looking like a raccoon with lipstick on but that's rare - most take their time and look really good.
