I have an mri at 5 today, completely forgot to ask and wasn't told not to, have tried to ring the department but can't get through. I know not very important question but google says no, only thing is I have to go somewhere else after and I have terrible eczema around my eyes I prefer to try hide in public!

I've always worn make up. Metal is the thing that causes problems.

Yes it's fine. You could wear a clown outfit if you wanted as long as it doesn't have any metal.

Yes though maybe if it’s metallic they’d make you remove it..?

You can wear make up no problem. Just dont forget to tell about any piercings/ metal in joint replacements etc as they will be ripped out of your body.
