‘Huh?’: Chameleon Reginae Carter Looks So Different This Time That Fans Don’t Recognize Her

Social media users are scratching their heads at Reginae Carter, the daughter of rapper Lil Wayne, after she shared a seemingly unidentifiable image of herself this weekend.

The 20-year-old reality actress has been on a roll with posting eye-catching selfies, but one picture in particular had folks a little puzzled. She took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon and shared a photo of herself modeling her Fashion Nova wear seemingly inside the comforts of her home.

Carter’s ensemble consisted of a black jogging suit, gray polo and a pair of black Balenciaga sneakers. She rocked blond-and-black ombre ringlets and apparently opted for a full-coverage makeup look, including thicker foundation, concealer and contour.

The 20-year-old captioned the photo of herself with a princess emoji. Nevertheless, fans quickly pointed out that, facially, Carter looked like a completely different person and put the fault on wearing too much makeup.

“Yoo you look like a different person,” one fan commented. “All that fu–ing makeup burning me the fu–out 🙄!”

“Who is this? All jokes aside this looks like someone else??!!” another fan exclaimed.

Another Instagram user added, “Wtf! I didn’t know who this was at first I was hella confused. Take that s–t off your face.”

Paradoxically, Carter was slammed by fans earlier last week for sporting a non-makeup look. She posted a bare-faced photo of herself at an event on Feb. 20, when a troll urged her to wear makeup.

“You not ugly but you need make up sis ❤️,” the detractor wrote.

The 20-year-old’s mother Toya Wright interjected and fired back at the person, “She don’t need s–t. She’s beautiful with or without.”

Since appearing on “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” a few years ago, the reality star has bore the brunt of social media’s scrutiny. She told BET in November 2017 that she loves being in front of cameras, but sometimes feels it’s too much pressure being in front of the spotlight due to her father’s success.

“I feel like people put pressure on me for no reason,” she said. “They don’t look at me like this little girl growing up, they look at me as Lil Wayne’s daughter and Toya’s daughter growing up. I still make mistakes. I still do things, like I’m growing up.”
