Flow measurements in high multiplicity pp collisions at the LHC have indicated the
development of collective flow in the small systems created at the LHC energies. Using
the event-by-event viscous hydrodynamics+hadronic cascade hybrid model, iEBE-VISHNU,
with fluctuating initial conditions, we investigate the azimuthal correlations in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7$ and 13 TeV with two- and four-particle cumulants. Our calculations of multiplicity dependent second-order azimuthal anisotropy harmonics $v_{2}$ are comparable with the recent measurements from CMS. The transition from positive to negative values of $c_{2}\{4\}$ in high-multiplicity events, which has been taken as an experimental evidence of collectivity, is observed in our hydrodynamic calculations with the same multiplicity cuts and acceptance cuts as the CMS measurements. We further study the mass ordering of anisotropy $v_{2}$ among different particle species. The calculated elliptic flow $v_{2}$ exhibits a clear mass ordering at transverse momentum $p_{T}$ below 2.5 GeV/c among $\pi$, K, p, and $\Lambda$. The comparisons of mass ordering between our model results and measurements from CMS are also presented. At last, we further investigate the effects of multiplicity fluctuations and non-flow on the sign of $c_{2}\{4\}$.
