Wearing fake eyelash & wudu issue


Can a woman use fake eyelash extensions and will wudu and ghusl be valid wearing these extensions?


Normally eyelash extensions are attached using some type of adhesive. If this adhesive is removable through washing and a coating does not form on the skin then it is allowed to use such extensions but she has to remove them when doing wudu and ghusl.

However, if the extensions are fixed firmly such that they are not removeable or are removable but the adhesive leaves a coating which does not wash away and prevents water reaching the skin beneath, making wudu and ghusl incomplete, then it will not be permissible to wear such extensions.
