Olivia Rodrigo Has TikTokers Channeling Their Confidence Through Makeup


Last week, rising pop star Olivia Rodrigo released her much-anticipated debut album, SOUR. The album, which features her first hit single “Driver’s License,” has taken the charts and social media by storm. Unsurprisingly, TikTokers have been creating fun content using her new music. One trend that’s been going around the app is a challenge that includes Rodrigo’s songs, “Traitor” and “Brutal.” The short videos show content creators crying to the ballad and then transitioning into full glam as the sound switches to the rock song.

Featuring everything from bright eye shadow and glowing skin to sharp eye liner and bold lips, the results of the challenge are seriously impressive. The mashup has been used over 800 times on TikTok, but here are some of our faves!

Bold & Blue

The first user to suggest the challenge, @lizaxmichelle brought her a-game to the trend. Going from tears streaming down her face to purple eyeshadow, rosy cheeks and killer eye liner, she really set the tone.

Subtle but Sassy

Going for a more muted makeup look, @maddybieschke shows that even a natural complexion can exude confidence and sass. The TikToker’s pouty lips and prominent freckles are on full display as she shows off her makeup skills.

Eye Liner That Could Kill

@mymomishere0’s TikTok is another one we’re loving! Her bright pink lipstick accompanied by winged eye liner after the transition radiates confidence and shows off her ability to create a gorgeous makeup look.
