Q. If a woman whose eyebrows are thick, is it permissible for her to shave/pluck it? Not in a manner as to beautify herself or making it look like inverted crescents but rather to get a bit of a feminine look. And also what about the women who wear veil? Are they allowed to beautify themselves since only their husband get to see them?

A. In the case mentioned, it would be allowed for the women to lighten the hairs on the eyebrows if it is so thick that it becomes an embarrassment for her.

Women who wear veil are allowed to beautify themselves for their husbands and must not be in violation of the established laws of the shariah.

And Allah knows best.
