*takes a deep breath* okay, i answered this a couple dozens times allready, but here we go again.
Excessive makeup is EASY to spot, and while it might look good at a distance, it makes me think "nope, girl's not geniuine. No go" then leave her alone. Why? Because if you cake on lots of makeup to the point of covering your face, i simply can't see you as genuine. You're covering a part of yourself for crying out loud. The same goes for quite a lot of ovedrone makeup (excessive use of eyeliner/mascara, fakingt things with powder...), simply because experience have shown a correlation between how much makeup a girl use and how genuine she acts.
I am ok with very small levels of makeup (that you can't see at a distance) to simply enhance beauty chararcteristics, but beyond that i do not see the need for makeup AT ALL. Note that even if i'm ok with it, i'm equally ok with a girl that does not use makeup at all except for on special occations, because it shows she's confident in herself and does not see the need to fake it to get a guy.
So how can we conclude this? Makeup comunicates personality too, and the more makeup i see, the less desireable i read her personality. Because i want genuine girls who's confident in herself and not afraid to show herself without makeup.

I know you are looking for guy's opinions on this but I wanted to comment that most guys don't realize that the 'natural' look is really just skilled application of makeup. They tend to think that if they are not seeing raccoon eyes and clown blush with crimson lips that you must be going bare faced. A guy that I dated for a few months told me that he liked that I didn't wear makeup and was naturally pretty. I was honestly a little baffled because he never once saw me without at least foundation, blush, light gloss, and a little mascara. So I think that when most guys say that they don't like makeup they really mean they are not a fan of the more dramatic looks.
