Liquid eyeliner and wudhu

Question ID: 27935

slmz mufti. must women who wear liquid eyeliner (which is a form of make-up used around the eyes), first wash it off completely before taking wudhu??? or will wudhu be valid if it is not completely removed first????

the eyeliner is water-proof so even if i make wudhu and wash my face three times, it does not come off, but my whole face is washed and wet. please keep in mind that it is only a thin line on top of the eyelid.

does this apply to wearing Kajal and eye pencil as well because it is also a form of make-up used around the eyes????

JazakAllah mufti

If eyeliner, Kajol, eyepencil has substance that does not allow the water to penetrate/permeate then it has to be washed out completely.
If water goes through then ok.
