Halal meat for Muslims is a well-known commodity, but now halal make-up is making its way onto shopping lists.

Business has been booming for the UK's first company to sell halal-certified cosmetics, which has been trading for three months.

The cosmetics have been welcomed by many Muslim women who want to follow fashion trends and their faith, but some question whether make-up needs to be halal.
