Is it permissible for a woman to wear fiber mascara

Question:

As salaamu ’alaykum,

Is it permissible for a woman to wear fiber mascara? When white fibers are applied (a powder mixture) then a mascara, they create an illusion of false lashes without wearing false lashes?

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Wa ‘alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

 

It is permissible to use fibre mascara. However, when using makeup one should consider the following:

1) It has no impure substances in it.

2) It is not visible to Ghair Mahram. (A person in front of whom a woman must observe Hijab)

3) It does not create such a layer which stops the water from getting to the skin. If it does stop the water from getting to the skin then Wudhu will not be valid in that state.

والله اعلم

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
