Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wabarakatahu. Can a bride do makeup for her Nikah? Or can a bride use Halal cosmetic products for her Nikah?

Wa ’alaykum al-salām wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
It is permissible to use makeup even if there is alcohol in it. Alcohol which is obtained from other than dates or grapes is not considered impure (najis) in the Hanafi school, therefore it is permissible to use it.
Nonetheless, it is important that the woman ensures nobody else other than the husband and maharim (unmarriageable kin) see her wearing makeup.
Only Allah knows best
