It would seem the Mishnah Berurah disagrees with Reb Moshe. In Hilchos Kriyas Hatorah (Orach Hachaim 141:6) it is brought that two brothers should not be called up one after the other, and he says that that's even if they are not Makpid. This seems to indicate he thinks Ayin Hara does affect those who do not care.
Reb Moshe in the Iggras Moshe (אה''ע חלק ג' סימן כ''ו) says NO. Even though the Gemara (פסחים ק''י ע''ב) says the Heter by Zugos (eating or drinking paired items) nonetheless Reb Moshe says the same applies to Ayin Hara.
