Wearing Make-Up

Wearing Make-Up

Q. What is the hukm (ruling) of wearing make-up for the husband? Will it be considered taghyir-e-khalqillah (changing the natural looks of creation)?

A. Make-up generally consists of harmful and haraam ingredients, hence its use is haraam. Furthermore, the cosmetic industry runs notorious and cruel experiments on the helpless dumb creatures of this world. Purchasing such cosmetics is aiding in the zulm perpetrated on these animals.

Beautifying oneself for the husband in lawful ways is meritorious and in fact necessary.
