Question: Can a woman apply light make-up for the purpose of covering spots and scars?
الجواب حامداً و مصلياً
In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It would be permissible for a married woman to apply make-up to cover the scars on her face with the intention to seek pleasure from her husband as long as the application of such makeups doesn’t contain unlawful ingredients nor does it prevent water from penetrating the skin when performing wudhu.
