If you've been reading our beauty content for a while now on Who What Wear, you're likely already familiar with one of our favorite Los Angeles–based lifestyle, beauty, and fashion bloggers, Melissa Meyers (also known as The Glow Girl). Not only is Meyers practically a savant when it comes to navigating clean, nontoxic beauty, but she also loves to routinely share her best tips and tricks when it comes to aging. Refreshingly, Meyers is all about embracing the aging process and empowering women to be the best version of themselves—whether that's taking the leap and experimenting with clean-beauty productsembracing self-tanners (instead of the sun), or just knowing the best and most effective makeup hacks.

We definitely recommend following her on Instagram at @melissameyers and keeping up with her frequent posts on The Glow Girl. (Click here for all of her dedicated Who What Wear beauty and fashion features!)

'Tis the season of gifting, and even though we've been busy creating tons of editor-approved beauty guides to help you get the most bang for your buck this year, we love to get recommendations from other beauty-loving friends as well. Being the knowledgeable beauty blogger that she is, we couldn't wait to get Meyers on the line to share her top gift ideas of 2020 and what's on her wish list. Below, she's diving into all of her top picks for the holiday season and beyond. Keep scrolling!

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
