The only ones that can make a look better are those that are not noticeable, and only hide various errors on the face (so things like foundation). Otherwise, a lot of things and especially anything that messes with your eyes can really mess up your physical image. That goes for lipstick and eye shadow and mascara and that stuff.
The only people who look good in makeup (by that I mean eye shadow and etc) are those who already look fascinatingly, unquestionably beautiful even without it. It can only enhance errors and make you look LESS attractive and LESS pretty if you use it. The only thing people can value is the effort you put into attempting to look better, and they can see that you are trying to be available. Otherwise, it is more repulsive than attractive on almost every single occasion.
i don't think guys will notice unless you look like a clown. when I go out I wear red lipstick and I've always been told by guys that it looks good. if you're going to wear bold make up then you have to choose one element to focus on eg. either the eyes or the lips and down play the other, never do both at the same time.
