At your own risk (you may have to restart the kernel to work as usual), 
but you could (re)define the global variable *$Pre* so  f would be 
applied to any subsequent entry. For instance,

In[225]:= f[x_] := x + 1

In[226]:= f[2]

Out[226]= 3

In[227]:= $Pre = f[#] &

Out[227]= f[#1] &

In[228]:= 2

Out[228]= 3

In[229]:= 3

Out[229]= 4
