@JustJen_wd:  Just hire someone to do their makeup and say that’s how it’s being done. The makeup person will be taking care of her brows. As for the tanner just ask that she not use any tanner, if she mentions a “few coats” remind her that she already agreed not to do that and that it will look silly with her being very tan and no one else having the fake tan.

Maybe direct her here for photo evidence

Hire someone to do the makeup and stand your ground on the fake tan. You can always remind them that it’s considered classy for brides and attendants to not be tanned and then find some terrible photos of over tanned BMs to show them.

I laughed out loud at my desk after reading this post. Your writing is quite comical and I could just imagine 2 orange sisters with black eyebrows and I though of halloween (no offense) I agree with the previous poster in hiring a make up person for the day off. Luckily you have alot of time until your wedding and maybe at that time the height of coolness with the eyebrows will have died off. Good luck!

I feel that it is over the top to ask her to change her eyebrows and her tan. If that’s what she’s comfortable with, then let it go. She’s a grown woman. If she wants to look silly, then let her. She’s there to support you and help you; her looks don’t really matter.
