Halal meat has become a common part of life in the UK, but now a company has launched a range of halal make-up, which is free from alcohol and animal products.
Samina Akhter set up Samina Pure Make-up from her home in Birmingham after questioning what she was putting on her skin.
She said: "I was shocked to find that some products contained alcohol and even pig placenta.

"Many Muslim women like me have been frustrated by wanting to look good and follow their faith."
There are almost one million Muslim women living in Britain and it is a growing population.
Samina Pure has over 500 customers and Ms Akhter said: "We've had women say, 'thank you, now I can use products and pray without having to take the make-up off'."
She said she wants Muslim women to have a choice.
"I'm not saying such and such product is haram and we are halal - you have to use us.
"Women have their own choices but at least they've got the option to do that."
