Trying took nice consists of me wearing something girlie and applying makeup. I try to look nice every now and then because people tell me I'm hideous when I'm being regular me. Well, they don't really say the word hideous but I get a lot of "advice" and "tips" and "constructive criticism" and "recommendations" about what I can do to be prettier.
Nothing I do will make me attractive. What should I do?

Wow, those are some mean people. Don't concern yourself with what they think, their opinions mean nothing. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and small minds discuss people.[Eleanor Roosevelt quote]. I'm sure you can guess which category they fall into. If you want to look nice, do it for yourself.
I think the problem, as c7777 pointed out, is that you're trying to adopt a look that's not working for you because it doesn't represent who you are. You should experiment a little and find a style/look that suits you. Look up some stuff online and shop with a good friend to get some feedback on what looks good on you. I'm not sure how good you are with makeup, but I never used to wear it, so I wasn't that great at applying it. My friend was really into all that though, and she helped me find the right foundation for my skin, eye shadow colors, the right eyeliner and mascara, brushes, and she also taught me a few tricks and different looks you can achieve using makeup (smokey eyes, cat-eyes, natural look, etc). I practiced for a while and now I'm more familiar with what looks best on me.
Anyway, hope this helps somewhat. The main thing is not to care what other people say, especially since they're nobodies. Do you and I think you'll be just fine.
