Sorry for the generational but lately I have been reading a lot of make up questions and many of the guys answers go something like "I don't like make up", "Girls who wear no make show they are confident". I know for a fact most of the guys that say that wouldn't be able to tell if a girl has minimal/ natural looking make up on or none at all.

You're right, because a lot of guys have no clue what makeup a girl is wearing. I know my boyfriend can't tell, but I don't wear much. Usually just mascara. Some girls do go overboard, and while it might not look the nicest, it is not that common. A lot of girls are quite good at doing their makeup, just look at the tutorials. There are ways for people to learn now, more so than before. So having a girl with caked on makeup is not a fool-proof way to tell whether she is wearing too much or not. There are a lot of girls who wear lots but you can barely tell. It's the skill of blending and choosing colors that makes it look good :)
