Making ablution while wearing makeup and nail polish


I performed ablution for dawn prayer and afterwards applied makeup. I later needed to repeat it for noon prayer. Is it permissible to make ablution while wearing makeup or do I have to remove it first? Please also respond to the same scenario with regards to nail polish.


It is obligatory to remove any makeup before making ablution if the makeup prevents water from reaching the hair or skin and the same applies to nail polish.
If it is not the case that water is prevented from reaching the hair or skin, the makeup does not need to be removed.
The above answers the question and Allah the Almighty knows best.
