Applying make-up when a boy is coming to see a girl

Q: “When a meeting is organised where a girl meets a boy to speak about potential marriage (in the presence of family members of course), is it permissible for the girl to apply make-up in order to make herself attractive, increasing the probability of the boy wanting to marry her?”


A: What is done in a reasonable amount is overlooked.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
