Making wudhu with particles of makeup remaining on one’s face

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was testing makeup for my marriage and there was a shining powder for face… I applied it . Now the shining particles have stuck so hard that I have washed my face with soap, used oil and wet tisssue washed again with soap, but the minute shining particles are not going away completely. Some are still staying back… what should I? Can I perform my wudhu in the same state? I dont think I will get rid of them before 2-3 days. Will my salaahs offered in such a state be valid?

A: As long as it is porous the wudhu will be valid.

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