Muslim-Friendly Make-Up Brands In Malaysia

13 Malaysian Makeup And Skincare Brands To Support


Sharifah Yusoff •  Dec 20, 2023

While international beauty brands like Fenty Beauty, Fresh Cosmetics, and Benefit Cosmetics are aplenty, the local make-up and skincare brands in Malaysia are making waves with their lines of cosmetics products. What’s great about these homegrown labels is that they are often halal-certified, wudhu-friendly, vegan and/or cruelty-free! The best part is, you can use these Muslim-friendly make-up and skincare brands in Malaysia with ease, knowing that the ingredients are all Muslim-friendly and safe for your skin too.

Note: Wudhu-friendly makeup consists of products that are not waterproof, and can be water-permeable. They are also often easy to remove as well as reapply. There are different opinions on whether wudhu can be properly done with these products on, so we recommend you use them at your own discretion and comfort.
