The upside-down smile is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a way of smiling while still having the corners of your mouth turned down, almost like you would if you were frowning.

Although it might sound simple, some are finding that the smile can be quite hard to pull off. However, some TikTokers have clearly been successful in their attempts to recreate this facial expression, as their videos have been garnering millions of likes and views.

There are also many who actually smile like that naturally, and are amused to see it becoming such a huge trend on TikTok. “I think it’s funny cause I smile like this naturally and now it’s a trend,” one comment with 6000 likes read.
