Do murder, mystery AND makeup actually go together?
Let’s start with an admission of guilt: I am a true crime junkie!
Also, being a novelist and a consumer of stories, I adore good storytellers. And when you combine great storytelling, true crime, and fascinating entertainment… Count. Me. In.
I can’t even remember how I discovered Bailey Sarian, but I am so glad I did, and I want you to discover her, too. Mainly because you need this in your life.
Who is Bailey Sarian?
I do not typically watch makeup videos on YouTube. Having said that, I watch two makeup YouTubers when I need a little break from work totally for entertainment purposes because I like these two particular YouTubers’ personalities.
The first one I want to talk about is Bailey Sarian, the creator of Murder, Mystery & Makeup. According to her YouTube About page, Bailey is a makeup artist and has worked in the makeup industry for eight years.
Personal observation: Bailey is beautiful before she puts even a dab of makeup on her face. It’s also absolutely fascinating to watch her transform her face with makeup while telling a true crime mystery. Watch one episode of Murder, Mystery & Makeup and tell me you don’t agree.
Why Murder, Mystery and Makeup?
I think that Bailey is simply demonstrating that we can all have multiple and wide interests. While it’s fairly easy to assume that me, as a writer of thrillers and suspense, would be interested in true crime, it’s a lot more difficult to connect Bailey the makeup artist to the subject. At the same time, I’m not surprised. A huge part of our population are drawn into these unsolved and/or peculiar real life mysteries. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have this endless supply of television shows, podcasts, documentaries, and docuseries dedicated to the subject.
Whatever the case, I think Bailey has found one of the most unique ways to connect two very different interests into one fabulous form of entertainment.
To make life easy on you, I’ve included her first episode of Murder, Mystery & Makeup right here. But after you watch it, you must run, not walk, over to YouTube and subscribe to her channel. She releases a new episode of Murder, Mystery & Makeup every Monday. Comment on one of her videos and tell her I sent you. 🙂
Now, go watch Murder, Mystery & Makeup and let me now what you think in the comments below.
