Q: I have a non muslim friend who was asking me that muslims are not allowed to wear make up then why do you wear it? I said to her that I only
wear foundation to hide my dark circles and it looks natural so I’m not attracting. Is it still not allowed?
A: It is impermissible for a woman to adorn and beautify herself by putting make-up, perfume, etc in the presence of na-mahram men.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
