YouTube star and makeup artist Mel Thompson has died. She was 35.
On Monday, Thompson’s husband announced on her Instagram that she died over the weekend, but did not reveal her cause of death.
“Mel sadly passed away yesterday,” he wrote alongside a carousel of photos, adding: “We lost a beautiful person.”
He continued, “I’ve had to answer so many texts of people just checking in on her without even knowing of her passing. It’s great to see how loved she was. And she loved all you right back. I’ll continue to love her and miss her forever.”
Thompson’s husband wrote that she was “such a pillar for” their family. Thompson leaves behind four children.
“The kids would talk to her non stop and she was constantly talking with them and trying to help them with their stuff,” her husband wrote. “And no matter how bad she felt, she would still rub my back when I came and jumped on the bed next to her while she was working tirelessly to put out content.”
