Occasionally, I like a novelty print, but then I use it for a lining or for a bag lining or car pillow cover or to hang on my sewing room wall.
In general, I like prints that can barely be seen - that serve more to add texture than pattern.
Prints I prefer:
Chevron stripes (But usually not zig-zag stripes)
Small, regular geometrics (But seldom dots)
Paisley or Filigree (Depending)
Make-up I wear to work: eyeshadow, blush, lip gloss
Make-up for more formal occasions: same as above, but with mascara
Make-up for days not at work: none
