TikTok influencer and celebrity makeup artist Anca Molnar has died of brain cancer, after initially ignoring symptoms of the disease.

The Romanian social media star was diagnosed with a brain tumour after she suffered a series of severe headaches — but she initially ignored them, as she did not think they were serious, her friend Alina Radi said.

Although she had been treated for the condition over the past year, including several rounds of chemotherapy, as well as surgery in Turkey, she died on Tuesday (local time).

“I came, lived beautifully and left for another world. I fought as best I knew how and with all my strength … Until the last drop of HOPE,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I leave my gratitude in my heart for how beautiful my life was and my smile will remain a testimony that I lived it to the fullest.”

More recently, Molnar praised the support of her husband, Claudiu.

“I have the strongest and best man by my side, in good times and bad. Thank you, my love.”

Molnar’s funeral was held on Thursday (local time).

Claudiu left a moving message for his wife, in a statement reported by Romanian website Spy News.

“We say goodbye, our love! You gave us the best years of our lives. You made us strong men who will never forget you,” he wrote.

“We pray that you watch over us proudly from heaven!

“Me and the fruit of our love, Patrick, say goodbye to you today.

“Thank you for fighting so hard for us. You leave only among people but not from our hearts! Smooth flight, my love!”
