Is face painting for kids permissible?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

السلام  عليكم

Is face painting for kids permissible, for example at kids fun days or sports days? Is it permissible for a female to do kids face painting?
جزاك الله خيرا

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

The majority of Scholars have stated that face-painting for kids is not permissible even though it is done for fun or sports day. This is a type of disfiguring and disguising of the face which is not allowed in Islam.

It will also not be permissible for a female to do kids face-painting.

And Allah Knows Best.
