What Mae Whitman Brings in Her Carry-on


Summer getaway season is here, which means that you are going to need to bring some things with you. In a bag. To help us decide what to pack (and what to pack it in), we’ve enlisted some celebrities to tell us what they’re lugging. Today, the travel essentials of Arrested Development and The Duff actress Mae Whitman. Welcome to My Carry-on.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Protectant

I love Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream. You can put it on anything, and it takes away those nasty dry-plane blues.

Glossier Phase 2 Kit

This kit comes with concealer, Boy Brow, and a lip/cheek stain, and I travel with it because it’s compact and can fit in my purse, and keeps me from looking like I passed away on the flight.

Paez Alpargatas

If I’m going somewhere cold, I’ll wear these No. 6 clog boots, but because it’s summer and I’m going someplace warm, I like my Paez slip-ons. I also go everywhere with my Blundstones.

Ask the Dust by John Fante

A good book is always necessary! Right now, it’s this one.

Golda Sphere Soap

My friend Keiko makes the most amazing line of soaps and sprays called Golda — it’s antimicrobial and also super relaxing, and perfect for freshening up. [Editor’s note: Aubrey Plaza is a fan of the spray as well.] I wash everything with it and travel with the soap because obviously it’s easier than liquids.

Clare V. x Garrett Leight Blush Cat Eye Sunglasses

My best friend Jane picked out my cool new sunglasses for me and I loooove them. I have to go everywhere this summer in them.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

I like to bring my Polaroid camera with me. (I know it’s a Fuji, but I call it a Polaroid.) The pictures are so cool-looking, plus I don’t like being on my phone.

Rachel Antonoff Reproductive System Sweatshirt

I always have my Rachel Antonoff reproductive sweatshirt for righteous coziness.
