maa shaa Allaah this is truly a much needed clarification of the ruling on makeup, about which many are unaware. shaykh al-albaani (rahimahullaah) advises both women and men in this regard.
"It is not permissible for the woman who does not wear hijaab, let alone who wears hijaab, to use the makeup of the disbelievers, the makeup of the rebellious and disobedient (to Allaah). You did not know a thing about the adornment of women called by a name that Allaah did not send down an authority for, 'makeup' - this is a language that we don't know, not us nor your fathers from before. Rather, it is only a word...expressing an adornment for rebellious and disobedient women, the rebellious and disobedient women of Europe, and our women unfortunately imitate - except those from them whom Allaah protects - decorating with this adornment that is affecting the islamic society, namely makeup. So it is not permissible for the woman. And this truth is from the strange ironies, in the road we see a woman wearing hijaab...[with] a khimaar...covering her hair and covering her neck etc., but [she is wearing] blush (a power used to redden the cheeks). This [wearing the hijaab] is against this [wearing makeup]' two contradictory, conflicting  matters, they do not go together. What is the reason [for this type of occurrence]? It is one of two things, either ignorance and heedlessness of the islamically legislated ruling or it is from the women's following of the temptations of the shaytaan.
Therefore, we remind firstly the women who are afflicted with this make-up. Then secondly, we remind the guardians of the women, from a father or a husband or a brother, as (the Prophet) ('alayhi ssalaat wa ssalaam) said: 'Everyone of you is a shepherd, and everyone of you is responsible for his flock. So a man is a shepherd, and he is responsible for his flock-' to the end of the hadeeth... So you, the husband of the woman, it is not permissible for you to allow her to go out in this manner which puts to trial the middle-aged men, let alone the young men. And you are supposed to, O man, O father, O brother, to be very jealous. Why? Because the Prophet (sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam) said: 'A duyyooth will not enter Jannah.' Why? Who is a duyyooth? He is the one who does not guard his womenfolk jealously."
