As the name of the trend implies, the Upside Down Smile trend on TikTok challenges users to twist their faces into a unique facial expression where they (quite literally) turn a frown upside-down.

To make the facial expression, the person must frown and then turn up the corners of their mouth. When done correctly, it effectively looks like an inverted smiley face. As of late June 2022, thousands of users have posted videos of themselves attempting to recreate the Upside Down Smile facial expression on TikTok.
