Her massive eyes were a focal point even when she was younger! Boasting natural double eyelids and a perfect nose line even at a young age, Winter proves to netizens that nothing’s changed.

Yes, she may look a little different but who didn’t when they were younger? It may be hard to believe but stars weren’t always perfect. Winter proves that even our favorite stars go through glow-ups just like us and it’s normal to do so. But let’s be real, glow-up or not, Winter was adorable!

While she may have lost her cute cheeks and the youthful school girl look, we can all agree that Winter slays regardless.
