Is it okay to wear light make up for sake of confidence


Is it ok if i wear light makeup and go out with the intension of increasing confidence?


Wa-alaykum Assalam

It depends on where you wish to go out and if the make up will be covered or not… If you are going out with the make up showing to non-mahram men, then it is not permissible.
