I love my family, my friends and my dog, Bella. I am an aspiring makeup artist and published most of my tutorials on YouTube. I was battling cancer for six years, but do not let that define who I really am inside. However, I'm bald from chemotherapy, I was told that being bald is beautiful, and even one day could create a style around. Well, now that's all I can think. "

The girl, makeup fanatic, began recording videos and post them on YouTube. That means she told that she had been diagnosed with leukemia and did not know whether to continue treatment or live freely the time she had left. "Everyone asks me if I'm scared. Sure I'm scared! "She lamented as the blog Women publishes the daily El Pais. She also published dozens of video tutorials which teach how makeup and amassed thousands of followers (today, the account over a million subscriptions).

The impact generated in US history took Talia to appear, for example, in September 2012, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where they announced that they would become honorary brand image of CoverGirl cosmetics. Later, she starred signature ads with the slogan "Makeup is my wig," that is, "Makeup is my wig."

I am very sad".

An order in her honor
Young fans wanted to pay homage and try to "comply" with her last wishes, which were posted on Facebook by Talia's mother through a photo of a handwritten by young own list. The number 62 said she longed for "her own collection of MAC makeup." As published by the Daily Mail, a request is created in the specialized site to create an online brand in honor of the girl and that bears her name.

"Talia Castilian died of cancer on July 16, 2013. She is a famous beauty guru on YouTube. She was a fan of Talia for about a year, and hear about her death hurt me deeply, "she wrote on the site Lauren Vennes, who initiated the request. "I think if we get enough signatures, MAC people will notice, and consider the possibility of realizing the dream of Talia. It would be even better if MAC will donate part of the money from this line to associations fighting against childhood cancer. " Currently, more than 10 thousand signatures were obtained, and the number continues to climb.

With only 13, Talia understood better than many of us life. She suffered a terrible disease, suffered pains and lived with the abysmal idea of ​​the days. But she chose to live those days with a smile, doing what she loved, in the company of their loved ones. How many of us can say we are living in the days that remain that way: with a smile, doing what we love and the people we love the most?
