Carrie Bickmore has taken to Instagram to share a hilarious set of snaps of herself from the 1990s where her eyes are always almost closed.

The Project host clearly had no idea her eyes were barely open in the pictures until she got them back from being developed.

"The 90’s.....when you didn’t get the chance to take a photo multiple times til you got one with your eyes open," she jokingly captioned the snaps.

Her followers were quick to comment on the hilarious snaps with Lisa Wilkinson joking, "Or get it in the centre of the shot. So cute."

"And when we plucked our eyebrows within a millimetre of themselves," someone else joked.

"I’m just glad social media wasn’t around when I was a teenager-early 20’s," another added.

"Kids these days will never appreciate what we had to deal with," one wrote.

"Yep! I have a range of 'selfies' with friends where you don't quite make the group!" someone else said.

"Is that really you Carrie?" another asked.

Some said that Carrie had aged "like a fine wine", while others suggested she looked like Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster and Sabrina the Teenage Witch's Melissa Joan Hart.

The presenter surprised her followers last year after chopping her long locks in favour of a cropped 'do after Melbourne's lockdown finished in October.

Carrie took to TikTok where she wrote: “Goodbye Lockdown. Goodbye Locks” on a video of her epic transformation.

Later, she took to Instagram to upload some snaps from The Project, writing: “Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday and there hasn’t been many holidays this year!”

Some even said Carrie had inspired them to transform their own locks and “cut away 2020”.
