You are letting her control you…. one word, DON”T! 

I would simply ask her to keep her fashion self to HERself and leave you alone to be YOURself.

This kind of stuff gets on my nerves, too.  DH’s cousin wears very heavy makeup.  I never do because when I was a teenager, the only way I was allowed to wear makeup was if my dad couldn’t see the makeup (ie: neutral colors).  So, all I wear normally is powder and eyeliner.  If I go somewhere that I need to be dressed up, I wear liquid foundation under my powder, thin eyeliner under my eye, a layer of mascara, and a bit of eye shadow.  Perhaps lipgloss.  DH’s cousin always tells me that I need to put more on.  A lot of people beg me to wax my eyebrows.  It is so annoying!  I trim my eyebrows up to look neat, and they’re not horrible, just not pencil thin.  I don’t see how my appearance effects anyone other than me and I already have a husband, so…

Haha, this sounds so much like my sister and I–she’s also 3 years younger and more high-maintenance than I am. She picks on me about being pale. When we were looking at the wedding venue she said something like, “you’re getting a spray tan before the wedding, right?” and I said I probably wouldn’t. She was like, “but you can get a really light one like mine!” And I went, “Oh, no way, way too dark!” Which insulted her. I didn’t even mean to! It was an automatic response, haha. And she started it!

I wonder if your sister might do this because she is jealous of your professional success, relationship, something like that? Maybe she views fashion/makeup as the one thing she can hold over your head, even though you choose to be low-maintenance? I think if I let my sister choose her Maid/Matron of Honor dress and I ask her advice on things like wedding colors (which I don’t care that much about) it might give her an outlet for all of those feelings and show I can respect her opinion and she’ll lay off the appearance jabs. Do you think something like that might work with your sister? If not, a “hey, I like how I look. Leave it alone,” might be needed. Good luck!
