Talia Joy Castellano may have passed away tragically at the young age of 13, but she has left a lasting legacy and hundreds of YouTube videos for all of her fans. Check out our five favorite videos of the bright and inspiring CoverGirl.
Talia Joy Castellano amassed quite a hefty YouTube vlog following in a few short years of posting as taliajoy18. Her artistic makeup ideas combined with her inspiring personal story and awesome camera presence made for a winning combination of informative and heartwearming videos. We’re breaking down some of our favorite Talia videos — and the ones you need to check out.
Talia’s CoverGirl Makeup Tutorials
Ellen Degeneres famously made Talia an “honorary CoverGirl,” a title which the young girl really took seriously. Of her many makeup-centric YouTube videos, two specific makeup tutorials really stand out. One is a CoverGirl daytime makeup tutorial and the other offers CoverGirl makeup tips for night looks. Both of the videos are introduced by Ellen herself, on the stage of The Ellen Show! Ellen refers to Talia as her “friend,” and you could tell how sincerely Ellen meant her words.
Talia’s Smokey Eye Makeup Tips
Talia’s smokey eyeshadow looks are absolutely masterful — and the looks are not limited to classic dark shades. Talia’s ability to craft smoldering styles out of vibrantly colored shadows is intimidating at first — but her videos break down the process into more beginner-friendly steps. “Day2NiteGreenSmokeyEye(;” is a perfect example of how Talia showed us all how to make bright colors wearable.
Talia’s No Mirror Makeup Challenge
To prove that fantastic makeup looks need not be too fussy or complicated, Talia challenged herself to create a makeup look without the help of a mirror. Talia really had fun with it and inspired tons of other beauty gurus in the process: without fancy tools or an emphasis on perfection, we can still have fun with our makeup!
Talia’s Nicki Minaj-Inspired Makeup
Nicki Minaj is another girl who certainly knows how to have a little fun with her makeup looks. No colors are too bright or too dramatic for the diva star! Inspired by Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” look, Talia reconstructed a powerful neon style — complete with neon green eyeshadow and bubblegum pink cheeks! It’s definitely not an everyday style, but it’s fun!
Talia’s Middle School Makeup Routine
Not all of Talia’s makeup experiments were over-the-top and dramatic: she also featured age-appropriate tutorials for middle school girls who want to play around with makeup.
