MAR. 8, 2017:
With almost 60k subscribers, Bailey Sarian is a true YouTube rising star. But how did it all start? ‘Everyone on Instagram kept asking me to make videos,’ she says. ‘Finally, one day, to stop everyone from asking, I decided to just do it!’
Bailey’s personality shines through all her videos, and she’s always stayed true to herself. ‘[I’m most proud of] my first video on how I highlight and contour,’ she explains. ‘The video itself is super janky and the lighting is yellow, but I made it clear from the beginning: I wear a cake face, I am proud, call me what you want.’
Her more recent videos may have better lighting and (she admits) her face might not be as ‘cakey’, but Bailey hasn’t changed. Her bold ideas come from sitting in front of her vanity mirror, pulling out a product that she hasn’t used or hasn’t touched in a long time, and forcing herself to do something with it. ‘I like doing stuff that is different,’ she says. ‘YouTube is filled with warm toned eyes and nude lip tutorials. I just wanna lighten up and play! The Blue Steele video I feel is just ME, hanging out, in my room, chatting and doing makeup. Plus a bold red lip is my THANG.’
