CoverGirl has paid tribute to their youngest cover girl ever, Talia Joy Castellano, after the 13-year-old died yesterday following a six year battle with cancer.
CG issued an official statement, saying “Talia Castellano was the meaning of a true COVERGIRL. Please join me in sending love and honoring her memory.”
They re-released the photo above, honoring the CoverGirl poster, which was unveiled last September when Talia appeared on Ellen.
It was Talia’s popular YouTube make-up tutorials that saw her become a CoverGirl, following in the footsteps of stars including Drew Barrymore, Taylor Swift and Pink.
She received her professionally shot advert from Ellen DeGeneres – another representative of the cosmetics brand live on TV.
‘I’m shaking I love you so much!’ the 13-year-old exclaimed as she met with the chat show host, just a month after revealing that she was battling two cancers at the same time.
The news of Talia’s death was announced via Facebook yesterday.
A message posted by her mother read: ‘It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven.’
Such a sad ending, hopefully her family can find peace…
