Olivia Rodrigo's popularity has continued to soar since she dropped her hit "Driver's License." Not only has she graced the cover of ELLE's Rising Stars cover, but she was also just booked as the musical guest for the May 15 episode of Saturday Night Live.

And now, she's proved she's here to stay, as Vogue asked her to share her makeup and skincare routine for one of their iconic videos!

"This is the kind of thing I do everyday," she explained as she kicks off her routine. "I like to keep it pretty simple."

After popping a few Olly hair vitamin gummies, Rodrigo washes her face with Epionce Milky Lotion Cleanser. She notes that she still deals with acne since she's only 18, but overall, she can't complain.

The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star then puts on a few drops of an Ordinary serum before breaking out her "relaxing" gua sha, a facial massage tool she just started using this year.

"Self-care has become super important to me lately," she noted. "Doing your makeup, or doing your skin care, or you’re taking a shower and taking care of your hair or whatever..."

"You’re not on your phone, and you're by yourself, and you can kind of really recharge," the brunette beauty continued. "That’s really important to me. I love alone time. I’m very much an introvert. And so doing stuff like that really helps energize me for whatever I’m doing in my work or my life."

After using a lip scrub and chapstick, the down-to-earth singer uses her fingers to apply First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer, explaining she's going for a "natural" and "glowy" look, just like Billie Eilish.

The actress then taps on Glossier's Stretch Concealer, which she's "obsessed" with.

Next up is bronzer, and as she's sweeping it around her face, she points out a birth mark on her cheek. While professional makeup artists offer to cover it up, she says she actually wants to let it shine, explaining, "I really like it."

After brushing on blush to make herself look "awake and happy," she dabs on a bit of highlighter.

Her eyebrows are the focus of her next step, using a pencil to fill them in and then going over them with Glossier's Boy Brow gel.

The crooner draws on winged eyeliner — noting it doesn't have to be "perfect" — then uses an eyelash curler before applying mascara.

Last but not least, she swipes on a berry-colored lip tint before adding a few products to her brunette locks.

"I think the biggest thing I've learned in makeup is less is more, especially with me. I think just accentuating your natural features is always the move and always when I feel the most confident," she shared at the end of her routine. "I really love putting on a makeup and it's this really awesome ritual for me. I think at the root of your beauty routine should just be enjoyment and just doing it for your own self-confidence. That's definitely what I've learned to do and it's the best."
