Bailey Sarian has gained quite a following on YouTube for her unique videos. The 31-year-old hosts a series titled “Murder, Mystery, and Makeup,” in which she pairs makeup tutorial videos with retellings of true crime stories.

I know it sounds like an unusual combination. Bailey herself admits it’s odd. But like she says on her YouTube channel, “I couldn’t just pick ONE topic to focus on, why not mix them both together?”

In the video tutorials, you’ll see Bailey go from no makeup at the beginning, to full glam by the end. But you’re likely not tuning in just for a glittery cut crease or expertly winged eye makeup. No, we’re tuning in for the morbid, heartbreaking, and even bizarre stories of true crime and urban legends.

One of those stories is what we’re going to talk about today: the story of Giulia Tofana, and her signature poison.
