Sarian started her professional career as a beauty studio artist at Sephora from 2009 to 2014. While at Sephora, Sarian advised the need-based beauty products to customers and did face makeovers for those who desired it.
She also fulfilled the front desk client service of ringing customers up for an easy studio experience. Furthermore, she took part in various Sephora training, including color encore, SOS, and others. Sarian was also assigned to try out for a spot on the Sephora Pro team, but she only qualified to the second round.
After that, she worked as a product specialist in Urban Decay from 2014 to 2015. While at the company, Sarian coached her colleagues on beauty products, their constituents, benefits, and application methods and facilitated short workshops focusing on makeup application tips and techniques. Subsequently, from 2017 to 2020, she was hired as a full-time in-house creator for IPSY, a customized cosmetics and beauty products company.
According to her LinkedIn bio, Sarian has been self-employed as a YouTube content creator and produced videos since 2014. “YES it’s an odd combination, but I couldn’t just pick ONE topic to focus on. Why not mix them both together?,” reads the description of her YouTube channel.
She merely offered the tricks and tactics she picked up from Sephora and Urban Decay in the early days of her YouTube career. Eventually, in 2019, she began her Murder Mystery and Makeup (MM&M) series, which catapulted her to fame. The concept of the series arose out of her enthusiasm for crime stories. Moreover, her mother worked as a 911 dispatcher, which initially piqued her interest in actual crime.
The debut episode of Murder Mystery and Makeup narrated the murder of a pregnant woman by her husband, Chris Watts. Ever since the first episode aired, the series has remained popular. “I was getting view counts as I had never gotten before, and within 24 hours I had gotten 60,000 views. To me that was fame,” Sarian told Village Voice over a phone call in 2021. “Then I was like, ‘maybe this isn’t a one-off, let me try it again with a different story.’ I’ve just kept going and I have not stopped growing since that first video,” she added.
Sarian narrates true crime stories of murders and mysteries while she does her makeup in the series. Her most popular criminal stories include Jeffrey Dahmer, a notorious serial killer, and Richard Ramirez, also known as “The Nightstalker.” As of October 2021, these stories have over 17 million and 8 million views on YouTube, respectively.
In addition, she also features stories on obscure criminals such as “The Scream Killers” (the Cassie Jo Stoddart case) and the “chocolate murderer” (Cordelia Botkin) in the series.
