I was wondering how do I put "Elle se Bronzent" is the Passe Compose, Imparfait, and Plus que parfait since i still haven't gotten the hang of it.

    First of all there is an error in the basic sentence. Either:
    Elles se bronzent
    OR
    Elle se bronze

    1. For the Passé Composé, all Reflexive verbs (se bronzer) require être as the auxiliary/helping verb.
    Elles se sont bronzées (the Past Participle functions like an adjective and must be feminine plural, like the Subject)
    Elle s'est bronzée

    2. For the Imperfect, this is a regular -er verb
    Elles se bronzaient.
    Elle se bronzait

    3. For the Plus que Parfait, again, because this is a Reflexive Verb, it requires être as the auxiliary verb. That will use the l'imparfait.
    Elles s'étaient bronzées
    Elle s'était bronzée

    Feel free to ask any question about anything you don't understand.
