Bailey Sarian talks about her Inspiration Behind Murder, Mystery And Makeup
Bailey did not think she was going to be making a murder series on her channel.
In her interview with The Allure she talks about her first video of Chris Watts which she created when fans requested her to talk about it. The Chris Watts story was the first story she had investigated in detail and was fascinated about – this video received more than 100k views in 24 hours.
Bailey said her mother who was a 911 dispatcher used to take her to work when she was little. She was fascinated by the different incidents which took place in the police department. When people called 911, she would listen to their complaints through headphones. She became very interested in crime because of this.
She recalled an incident where a young girl called 911 because someone had broken into her house. She spoke in a very fearful tone and was told to lock herself in the house till the police arrived.
Bailey stated that making these videos all the time can be very exhausting. She needs to spend a lot of time on research and even hired a research partner to help her with the work. Sometimes the crime stories affect her so she takes a break from them every now and then.
She uploads Murder, Mystery and Makeup videos on Mondays and other kinds of videos on Saturdays. Most of the victims in these videos are women. She hopes her videos will help spread awareness about the constant abuse and crimes which are committed against women.
