Lipstick & Brushing Teeth While Fasting


1. Is it permissible for a women to put on the lipstick when fasting?

2. And can we brush our teeth during fasting?

Wa Alaykum Salaam
1. It is permissible.
2. To brush the teeth while fasting doesn’t break your fast if the person doesn’t swallow the particles of the paste mixed with the water. And small proportion of it which gets dissolved in saliva doesn’t break the fast at all.
