    Hijab + Make-up negates the whole point of Hijab? - This is not a make-up thread

    Does a hijab with make-up negate the whole point of hijab? Do you wear make-up with hijab? what are the reasons for it?
    Bros, what would you do if your wife wore make-up with hijab? is it calling out for attention? can it be excused? is it normal?

        Make-up isn't necessarily used to get male attention, but looking as Elji said - "presentable". It's similar to when a group of men go out to dine together, they all suit up looking their best. Make-up is a female cultural accessory, as much as pruning one's hair in a certain style or using a hair straightener. Women find a great deal of their self-esteem and confidence in how they physically look, so its arguably more of a tool for themselves than for the attention of the opposite gender.

        In regards to the actual question, it depends how much make-up she uses. But anything taking particular effort, then that is with intent of "exasperating" one's own beauty publicly; a contradiction of the values the Hijab stands for. So a key word I'd use is moderation in the application of make-up.
        If you read this closely enough you might spot the secret message hidden in it

          Alot of it negates the purpose of hijab.. but when it is subtle and doesn't scream out "LOOK AT ME, I'M WEARING MAKE-UP" then perhaps it can be overlooked.. Personally I don't wear make-up cuz i wear hijab..if i didn't wear hijab, maybe i'd wear a bit of make up? It kinda does go hand in hand.

            but cant that lead to wearing half-sleeves shirts or something since someone might feel they feel more confident in one and theyre not doing it for men etc.

            its a slippery slope

              no make up out :D I know some people who say they look dead or sick if they don't wear it so they wear just enough to look decent. But most sisters I know tend to over do it

                Most guys don't have a clue about make-up and aren't qualified to make braod generalised statements on it.

                I bet half of you wouldn't be able to recognise a woman wearing full make-up.. when I started a recent job I used to wear full make-up everyday, one day I couldn't be bothered, and a colleague said "are you ok, you don't look so well today?" :rotfl: ..I laughed and said it was probably the lack of make-up and she was like " You wear make-up?! I couldn't even tell "

                (..and noooo.. that doesn't mean I do look ill without it .. it's just that you look different and people only notice the difference if you make the change ..generally I don't wear it everyday and no it doesn't result in comments about looking half dead, don't worry )

                Anyway, you lot are clueless ..when you think make-up you think bright brash obvious colours that stand out a mile..

                Make-up just evens out the complexion, covers any blemishes or spots, accentuates certain features.

                Foundation, concealer, even mascara and lip stick[depends on shade] can be appled without anyone noticing it's on. The difference is very subtle.

                Also it's not to attract men ..grow up.. the world doesn't revolve around you blobs!

                It's to look more presentable, neater, it gives a cleaner look, and it's just nice :D ..and it's fun :hidban:

                Reducing the dark areas around the eyes [they're not always from lack of sleep or whatever], and for example applying white eye liner on the inner bit of the eye, is a good trick to make you look for alert and awake :up:

                Covering up blemishes just makes you look neater and tidier.

                Applying stuff to lips can help moisturise your skin and just make them feel nicer :D

                And applying kohl is sunnah anyway.

                I dunno why you lot think decorating the body is against hijaab, there are scholarly opinions saying kohl is fine for women even going outdoors.. also women decorate their hands with henna and hands and also shown even when wearing hijaab.. so this is all adornment.. and we're told to cover adornments apart from those which are apparent.. [those on your hands or face then obviously].

                Woman also pierce their nose and so on, even that is adornment and decoration.

                Obviously the condition as always is that it's not excessive so that it attracts you undue attention and makes you stand out. It should be standard, ordinary type of adornment.

                Some quotes:

                2. Makeup:
                It's important to inculcate a sense of beauty in our daughters that is not predicated on how physically appealing we look. A Muslim woman is naturally beautiful because her iman shines through and gives her a unique radiance.
                Makeup does not make a woman beautiful. While it can be used to enhance a woman's features, it is not appropriate for a woman to wear heavy makeup in public. I emphasize the word heavy because there are some types of adornment which are permitted by the sunna, such as kohl and henna. What the Qur'an and Sunna explicitly prohibit is a woman's making a display of herself. There is a difference between modest, tasteful elegance and showy adornment. As a mother, it is up to you to show your daughter this distinction.
                3. Jewelry:
                Jewelry is really in another category. Depending on what type it is and what quantity your daughter wears, how much is this an issue? Perhaps a compromise can be reached here. What your daughter should avoid is any type of jewelry which draws attention, like ankle bracelets, for example. But if she is talking about wearing a ring and a wrist bracelet, for example, then this is permissible.

                You can see that many adornments are allowed and the common adornments for the face and so on in those days were even used, but there is strong caution regarding bright and dazzling colours and making a display and attracting undue attention.. if you look like you blatantly have it caked on then obviously that is not very tasteful and doesn't go well with hijab.

                If it's subtle and light then I don't see what's wrong with it.

                          Yeh you have to be in the mood.. I'm not anymore for daily use.. I can mostly be too lazy for it.. but I think it's good for when you're working, 'cuz it kinda sets you up for the day, you look smarter, more alert, in charge.. so you feel it and can go and show the kids who's boss

                          It's kinda like how having a tidy bedroom makes it easier to do your homework :D

                          Don't get me wrong.. most days it's: wash face, moisturise, pin on scarf.. ..but if I could be bothered to put in the effort, I wouldn't think it was wrong.
