Makeup and sunscreen while in ihraam

Fatwaa ID: 2132

Assalamualikum mufti saab.
Can one apply eyebrow pencil in the state of ihraam as they are not scented and it’s not going to beautify the shape?
And also can we use sunscreen in the state of ihraam as long as it’s not scented?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala accept your ‘umrah.

It is permissible to apply eyebrow pencil while in the state of ihraam. However, you must be cautious that no strands of the eyebrows fall. It is also permissible to apply unscented sunscreen whilst in the state of ihraam. Here too, make sure that no body hair falls off.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
