Getting one's makeup done before the wedding

Q: What is the ruling for a woman who is forced to do makeup at  a beauty parlor on her wedding day? The halal status of the makeup used at the beauty parlor is not known and the esha prayers will have to be offered with that makeup since people at the parlor do the makeup quite early. Should a woman accept the request of her in-laws to go to the beauty parlor for her makeup or should she argue against it?

A: If the status of the makeup is halaal then it is permissible. And if it is halaal and in doing the makeup her namaaz and wudhu are not compromised in any way it is permissible. If any obligation like wudhu, namaaz, etc. is going to be compromised then you will avoid this.

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