YouTube Beauty Guru Talia Castellano’s Mom Talks About Her Death

Talia Joy Castellano's mother has spoken out about the teenager’s recent death. The 13-year-old who made a name for herself as a beauty blogger and YouTube sensation died on Tuesday after a six-year battle with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

In an interview with the TODAY show on Wednesday, Castellano’s mother Desiree described the Orlando teen as “funny, caring, inspirational, talented — very talented.”

Castellano, who was named an honorary CoverGirl, had her own popular website which featured all her makeup tutorials – even filming tutorials during her hospitalizations.
