Stars Sound Off on Talia’s Death

The 13-year-old cancer victim and YouTube makeup queen was inspiring to celebs.

Celebrities and normal folks alike took to social media to celebrate the life and mourn the death of Talia Joy Castellano, a 13-year-old who succumbed to cancer Tuesday. The teen’s death lead to a slew of pictures, quotes, and other forms of dedication to her and her work as a YouTube makeup sensation. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Sofía Vergara (both of whom are faces of CoverGirl, as Castellano was) called her “inspiring” and “beautiful.” DeGeneres, who had Castellano on her show earlier this year, said, “This year I met a very special girl, and today we lost her. Sending my heart to Talia’s family. I’m so sad.” Makeup artists such as Michelle Phan and Kandee Johnson, who inspired Castellano’s work, also gave condolences.
