Rest in Peace, Talia Joy Castellano

Heartbroken. That's the only way to describe the feeling when we heard our favorite little beauty vlogger, Talia Joy Castellano, died on Tuesday at the too-too-young age of 13. The honorary CoverGirl absolutely bowled us over with her sharp, sassy YouTube makeup tutorials, which she posted under the slogan, "Makeup is my wig."   read more

Feel free to substitute fresh for frozen (it is summer, people), or other fruits, like blueberries, pineapple or mango.)   read more
