"Men, please don't," says the 45-year-old in a short clip. The reason: She wants the man to remain a man. Covers dark circles and sprays with perfume, Schöneberger goes too far – face cream is good though. There will be a lot of criticism for his statements, more than 30,000 comments collected during the post.
What do Swiss men think of Schöneberger's post? What do you think about men and makeup? We asked three celebrities with make-up experience.
This year Kenny Leemann (23) graduated from Bachelorette Andrina Santoro (27) and dusted off the last rose there. The architecture student says he has already used his sister's make-up to hide stains – especially when self-assured behavior was required.
Cover powder and dark circles are standard for photography and TV appearances. "I don't want to see shit next to my stupid words," Kenny says.

Of course, Barbara Schöneberger should be able to express her opinion publicly." But she must also expect it to be headwind, "says the influencer and artist Elay Neal Moses (23). Barbara likes men "Unfortunately, it seems like she makes fun of men who make up," says Elay.
Zurich with more than 30,000 followers rarely travels to make-up, for example when visiting events or looking fit after a night of drinking – for the same reason that women would make up. "It's important to me that it looks natural, but that's just my taste," she said.
