YouTube Beauty Guru and Teen CoverGirl Talia Castellano Passes Away At 13

  • YouTube beauty guru, CoverGirl, and inspiring young lady, Talia Joy Castellano, “earned her wings” this Tuesday morning, according to a post on her Angels For Talia Facebook page, after a six-year battle with cancer. She was 13 years old.

    Talia used her YouTube channel as a platform to spread messages of positivity, post makeup tutorials, and keep her peers and viewers updated on her treatments. As a constant voice of courage and hope, Talia gained over 780,000 subscribers and built a powerful community of friends and supporters.

    In an interview with Shira Lazar last year, Talia said, “YouTube, and all the support that I get from everyone telling me that I’m inspiring and not to give up, it really makes you stop and think about how many people there are that love you… You’re not there alone.”

    She will be dearly missed by the many whose lives were influenced by her strong and beautiful soul.

    As a tribute to Talia, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite videos from her channel:
