The 54-year-old 'Hero' singer has sported a variety of looks before. In June 2022, Carey shared videos and images from the anniversary of the 1990 release of her album 'Mariah Carey', as reported by OK Magazine.
Carey then posted a video of herself wearing full makeup and having her hair done, kissing the camera as 'Vision of Love' played in the background.
Soon afterward, everyone wanted to know if Carey had had surgery. One person asked, "New face?" while another added, "How many fillers can one get??? Dear Lord????? Love you Mariah but so d--- insecure I don't even recognize you. Way too much just way too much." "Is this the real Mariah?" a third asked.
The mother of two has always taken a strong stand against aging. She previously said, "I don't count years but I definitely rebuke them … I have anniversaries, not birthdays, because I celebrate life, darling."
Mariah Carey says she has to remain 'oblivious to age'
She told People in 2015, "I think I have to remain eternally oblivious to age. Honestly, when you put a number on it yourself, it's just like, Why? Why do that?"
Carey acknowledged that she doesn't always get dressed up, even though she always looks her best. She said, “If you’re not wearing a lot of makeup, you don’t have to take a lot of it off. So, my goal is to wear the least amount of makeup possible so I don’t have to steam my face and take it all off."
She admitted, “I do [have bad hair days], and then I have to apply my 500 hours of beauty school. If it’s really bad, I’ll just slick it back and put it in a bun.”
