I am very sad to share the news that YouTube beauty guru and honorary CoverGirl, Talia Joy Castellano, has passed away today at just 13 years old. She had been fighting her battle with cancer for many years now and had spent the last 6 months in the hospital.

Talia was a little ray of sunshine, spreading her love of beauty and life through videos she made on YouTube. What a positive attitude this young girl had despite her illness. It seemed as though she never let her illness get the best of her.

I admire this little girls strength and perseverance. She definitely made her mark on this world and it hurts my heart that cancer took her from us. Please check out some of her videos below and take the time to smile a little as she would have wanted everyone too!
