  • The Glowdown: Kelli Bartlett, Director of Makeup, GLAMSQUAD

    The Laszlo Latest #YouOnlyYou
    September 21, 2017

    As VP of Makeup at GLAMSQUAD, an on-demand and in-home beauty service, we could not wait to unpack Kelli’s wealth of beauty and skincare knowledge. Her professional experience in and of itself is enough to warrant our very first interview in ‘The Glowdown’, a new series bringing you inside the beauty cabinets of an array of inspiring and beautiful women . But seeing Kelli’s stunning beauty and radiating confidence IRL had us putting our foot down and demanding answers. Okay, we still politely requested an interview with her but read on to find out all of her secrets (We should be applying blush where?!).

    The Basics

    Name: Kelli J. Bartlett

    Age: 30

    Occupation: Director of Makeup & New Services at GLAMSQUAD, Makeup Artist

    Location: Gramercy Park, New York

    Astrological Sign: Sagittarius

    Favorite Erno Laszlo Product: Hydrogel Soothe & Calm Mask

    When were you first introduced to Erno Laszlo and how?

    I was first introduced to Erno Laszlo when I visited NYC as a very young girl. My Nana and I walked through Saks Fifth Avenue and I spied the iconic black soap. Years later, I remember seeing the same soap in Woody Allen’s ‘Annie Hall’.

    Now, part of my job at GLAMSQUAD is to oversee and vet makeup and skincare partnerships, plus service add-ons. When it came time to pick a face mask partner, there was no question in my mind! The Hydrogel Masks are a game-changer and a perfect prep for makeup as well as being a spa-like treat.

    What does Erno Laszlo mean to you?

    Erno has always been synonymous with glamour, luxury, science, diligence and results. Erno Laszlo’s rich heritage and clientele hooked me, but the methodology and results are what have kept me loyal.


    Tell us about your relationship with skincare. Where did it start? How has it evolved?

    My relationship with skincare started at an early age. My Nana was a BIG believer in a rigorous skincare routine and she believes that good skin was a result of good habits! The minute I was old enough, she took me to receive my first skincare consultation and taught me the benefits of a consistent regime. I remember feeling so excited about the multi-step process. Even when I was younger, it was always a joy and a treat to spend time pampering. Over the years, it has evolved into being an essential part of my job; not only am I caring for other’s skin but also sharing my passion and joy for skincare with clients and other makeup artists so that we can empower women to find their own glow. There is SO MUCH product out there and I love curating the best of the best.

    What’s the best skincare or beauty advice your Nana shared with you?

    My Nana was a constant source of beauty advice and she remains one of my pillars of inspiration every day. She always stressed that you should remove your makeup before going to bed and apply just a little bit of lip or cheek, just in case there was a “fire in the night!”. I love the idea of being a bit glamorous before bedtime! She also believed in taking your vitamins every day and staying hydrated. She always used to say that “Your body cries for water!”.

    What is your skincare guilty pleasure/confession? (We won't judge!)

    Long luxurious facials (which I save diligently for), bubble baths and rosé. I often light a candle, apply a mask, listen to NPR and drink wine while in the tub!

    Walk me through your typical morning and evening skincare routine. How and why does it differ on a daily basis?


    I typically workout most mornings so before I go dance it out at 305 Fitness, I will rinse off my [Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask] and throw on moisturizer and some Rosadan to help control my rosacea and skin flushing. (Wahooo!) Post-workout, I generally just rinse with cool water in the shower so I don't strip my skin.


    Nighttime is where things get really fun! I will remove my makeup with a makeup removing wipe first. (I use MAC, Olay or Neutrogena - whatever I have lying around.) Next, I cleanse my skin with Dr. Macrene’s 37 Actives Cleanser and tone with p50W by Biologique Recherche. I then apply Erno Laszlo’s Phormula 3-9 Eye Cream and the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask.


    Describe your standard beauty routine. How does it differ from daytime to evening?

    Try as I might, I am not an “out-the-door in 5 minutes” kind of gal (much to the chagrin of former boyfriends and friends)! I love the getting-ready process. I delight in taking my time, having a coffee, bumming around in a robe, but the reality is that my AM routine has to be super efficient or else I won’t get out the door. Days are long so my AM routine sets me up for success for the whole day.  


    I always start my makeup the same way - with MAC Paint Pot in “Layin’ Low” smeared across my lids, which is the perfect orangey-brown to make my blue eyes pop. It also is like a 2-in-1 primer/eyeshadow; it conceals my eyelids and allows me to apply eyeshadow later in the day if I am feeling ambitious. Next, I curl my lashes with the Troy Surratt eyelash curler, then prime my lashes with Lancome CILS BOOSTER  XL. I then gel my eyebrows in place with Mary Kay’s brow gel and add a few flicks of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz in Caramel.


    Skin is simple - I use Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick in the lightest shade and I apply it with an Artis Oval 6 Brush. Cle de Peau concealer is my best friend for under eye circles and the rare blemish. The Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Palette is next (in Intensity One), which I throw into the hollows up the cheeks and across my forehead so that I have some structure to my face.


    I am constantly having different love affairs with lipstick and I generally use whatever lipstick I used on my lips on my cheeks. I draw cat whiskers on the apples of my cheeks, then blend with my hand before applying mascara (Lancome Hypnose in Deep Black has been my go to for 12+ years) and I’m running out the door!


    For night, I try and dial up the drama - mostly with bold, smoky and metallic eyes. I love Pat McGrath’s eyeshadows; They are so pigmented and give a flash of metallic on what I like to call “dinner-plate” eyes. They are the types of eyes that you can’t necessarily see right away, but when you look down at your dinner plate, you get a POP of wow! I am also obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock ‘n’ Kohl Eyeliner in Barbarella Brown. As a redhead, black can be super harsh on me so this color is a DEEP brown (like coffee grounds), which works perfectly!

    Do you have a beauty hack to share?

    My favorite hack is to add a bit of blush to your eyebrow bone at the end of the makeup. It just pulls everything together!

    You’re stranded on a deserted island and can only bring 5 skincare/beauty products. What are they?

    Troy Surratt Eyelash Curler

    Lancôme Hypnose Mascara in Deep Black

    NARS Dolce Vita Lip Pencil

    Hampton Sun SPF 70 for kids

    Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Sleep Mask

    The beauty space is constantly evolving. What are your thoughts on its current status and how that impacts you as a woman?

    I find that women are more confused than ever about beauty. They see these Instagram makeup “enthusiasts” applying contour with a whisk, overdrawing their eyebrows, etc., and they are so overwhelmed. Women are constantly apologizing to me and worried that they “should” be doing more, applying more, using more, etc.  Beauty and makeup is all about the way you want to feel and the things you can do to empower yourself to feel like the best version of you, whether it’s super glam or stripped down and raw. There is power in all of it.

    Who is your #1 beauty icon?

    My #1 beauty icon is my Nana, if you couldn't guess! She made people feel beautiful on the inside and out. Her style was always put together and glamorous. I have also always admired Diana Vreeland, a true self-made woman who saw beauty in the rare and exotic.

  • How-To: Dual Phase Vitamin C-Peel

    The Laszlo Latest How To Videos
    September 19, 2017

    Peel and reveal. Powered by super-nutrient Vitamin C, our clarifying two-step peel gently polishes skin as it fades dark spots and discoloration. Step 1 gently exfoliates; Step 2 activates brightening and moisturizing actives—you simply peel away to uncover instant radiance. Your complexion feels instantly new: smoother, even-toned and illuminated. Protective antioxidants and collagen-boosters combine to refine and renew skin, such as age-defying actives and brightening ingredients, including:

    Vitamin C—the formula’s star multitasker—to reduce dark spots and dullness, lighten skin and jump-start collagen production.
    Carrot seed oil to heal and balance dry or chapped skin, while helping fight age spots and sun damage.
    Lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin so it’s properly prepped to absorb brightening, hydrating and healing nutrients.
  • Exfoliation 101: Let’s Get Physical (And Chemical)

    The Laszlo Latest
    September 17, 2017

    The world of exfoliation can often be an intimidating and scary beast in the wild terrain of skincare for both newbies and experts alike. With words like chemical, physical, peels, it’s easy to just slowly back away and skip this step all together. But we’re here to hold your hand and break down the big, bad world of exfoliation so you can stop missing out on all of its amazing benefits (like allowing nutrients and other products to sink into your skin better). Trust us!

    Physical vs. Chemical Exfoliation

    First, let’s discuss the difference between physical and chemical exfoliation.

    Physical exfoliation incorporates beads, sugar or other pieces of texture to scrub away debris and dead skin cells.

    Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, won’t look like a typical scrub to the naked eye. It will contain a wide variety of acids (Lactic, Glycolic, Citric, etc.) in its list of ingredients to get the job done. Again, don’t panic. These are not the acids from your over-the-top scary movie. These are gentle ingredients that remove dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

    Fun fact: Our Dual Phase Vitamin C-Peel brings together the benefits of both physical and exfoliation in two, simple steps.

    AHA vs. BHA

    Chemical exfoliates can be further broken down into two popular categories -- AHA and BHA. AHAs, or Alpha Hydroxy Acids, are natural and gentle exfoliators that break down the material that holds dead skin cells together and rids your skin of any dullness. The lactic acid in our C-Peel is an AHA derived from sour milk (although has none of the same scents!) and lesser known sources such as beer and pickles! Not only is lactic acid gentle and mild enough for those with sensitive skin, it also contains preservative and moisturizing properties. It’s our very own triple threat!

    BHAs, or Beta Hydroxy Acids, are oil-soluble molecules that reach down further into your skin to rid your pores of any clogged up material. This makes it very suitable for those trying to eliminate blackheads or struggle with acne. Of course, you should speak to your dermatologist to understand which chemical exfoliant will best suit your skin.

    How-To Use

    Now that we know what an exfoliant is, let’s discuss how to use it. Typically, you should incorporate an exfoliant into your routine one to two times a week. With this, you should see brighter, smoother, rejuvenated and radiant skin! You can (and should!) adjust the frequency of use depending on how your skin reacts to it, as with any other skincare product. Some people’s skin benefits from using it more than twice a week and others find that it accentuates their inner glow from using it just twice a month.

    Pro Tip: After exfoliating, make sure you’re using a broad spectrum SPF as your skin may be extra sensitive to harsh UV rays.  

    And with that, you have graduated Exfoliation 101. Congratulations!. Next step: Take the plunge and incorporate it into your regimen to reveal your most radiant skin yet. Our C-Peel is a great starting point for all skin types! Still have your reservations? Don’t hesitate to reach out on our social media channels.

  • 4 Double Cleanse Myths Debunked

    The Laszlo Latest
    September 16, 2017

    Do yourself (and your skin) a favor and read this.

    Everyone has different ideas of what washing their face means. For some, it’s a quick swipe of makeup remover while others have a much more involved process. Here at Erno Laszlo HQ, we swear up, down and sideways by the magical powers of the Double Cleanse. (Disclaimer: In reality, these transformational powers are propelled by science and not magic.)

    Not only is the Double Cleanse the foundation of all our skincare routines but also of our company. Our founder, Dr. Erno Laszlo, introduced the two-step ritual to his star-studded roster of clients in Hollywood during a time when women were washing their face with cold creams. (Gasp!)

    While skincare philosophies have evolved immensely since then, we have heard every hesitation of the Double Cleanse in the book. And so many of them are misplaced! Since we never miss out an opportunity to sing the praises of this revolutionary skincare step, we are addressing these concerns below.

    1. Two steps? Sounds excessive and time-consuming.

    Yes, the Double Cleanse is two steps. But before your blood pressure spikes thinking of how you barely have time to order Seamless for dinner, let’s just break down how important those extra 30 seconds can be for your complexion. Quite frankly, between dirt, pollution, sweat and oil, our skin is dirtier than ever. Anyone who has ever taken the L train during rush hour in the sweltering NYC summer can attest to this.

    The impurities that are taking up residence on your skin, in your pores, and in between fine lines are both oil-based and water-based. As we all learned in elementary school science, oil and water do not mix. Enter our Cleansing Oil and Cleansing Bar, which gently remove both of these oil-based AND water-based impurities. The Cleansing Oil grabs onto and rids your face of sebums, silicones in your foundation, sunscreen and other natural oils while the Cleansing Bar tackles dead skin cells, bacteria, perspiration and more. (Fun fact: Your skin sheds 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute. Yuck. Since these dead skin cells don’t just fall off, you need to cleanse correctly to remove them.)

    If you still think you’re too stretched for time or energy to add a two-step cleanse to your nighttime routine, think of it as an investment in the efficacy of the rest of your regimen. Not only can your skin not properly repair and regenerate while you slumber if it’s bogged down in toxic chemicals, but properly cleansing your faces allows the active ingredients in your serums and night creams to penetrate more deeply. Double Cleanse, double win!

    2. Washing my face twice will leave it feeling as dry as the Sahara.

    This is a common misconception that we have heard time and time again. The good news is that our Double Cleanse will soothe and soften your skin without stripping it of any moisture. We’ve also created four Double Cleanse collections targeted towards specific skin concerns. If you struggle with dry skin, we suggest our Hydra-Therapy Double Cleanse, which restores hydration while cleansing and leaves you with hydrated, nourished and smooth skin.

    3. Putting oil on already oily skin seems like a recipe for a breakout disaster.

    While logically this sounds like a safe assumption, it’s untrue. Oil-based cleansers are actually super gentle and can help reduce acne instead of creating it by clearing your pores of that oil-based debris we mentioned before. Water-based cleansers just can’t latch on to sebum, makeup, or pollutants as well because of that whole oil/water science. Like removes like so if your skin is oily or you wear a lot of makeup, the Cleansing Oil is a necessity for a proper cleanse.

    4. Putting a soap bar to my face?! Sounds too harsh.

    False. This is not like that bar of floral-scented soap found in your Grandma’s guest bathroom. Our Cleansing Bars are formulated specifically for your face and boast game-changing antioxidants and botanicals. Even still, if you have sensitive or easily irritated skin, we suggest our Sensitive Double Cleanse. With anti-inflammatory plant extracts and soothing honey, it is specifically formulated to soothe and calm your skin while cleansing.

    Masking is the perfect way to get instant results. It can plump, boost, lift and hydrate so you can look refreshed. We recommend our Powder Masks daily, weekly or whenever you need that extra boost to give you a fresh faced glow.

  • What Mom Really Wants

    The Laszlo Latest
    May 05, 2017

    May is all about Mom! She may be content spending time together as a family, but let’s be real, everyone always appreciates a little gift. We talked to the Moms in our lives about what they really want for Mother’s Day.

    Mom to be:

    “As a first-time mom-to-be, my skin has been freaking out. I would love a gift that helps calm my skin. I’m also only three months along and nervous about stretch marks.” – Emily

    First child or fourth, expecting mom to be should be gifted something thoughtful.

    Skin can panic during pregnancy. Between hormonal changes and stress, acne and irritation can be a real struggle. Our Sensitive Double Cleanse ($28) is a great treat for irritated skin and a great chance to wash away the stress.


     As her belly grows, stretch marks become a concern. Phormula 3-9 Cream ($275) is a nourishing blend of botanical oils, plant and marine bio-actives creating a protective and healing barrier at the surface of the skin, absorbing deeply to heal damage and hydrate skin.


    Pregnancy can also be uncomfortable, so give her some comfort. We love the Natori Shangri-La Robe ($98). The soft material from a nice robe is great for lounging around the house, especially in their third trimester.

     Natori Shangri-La Robe

    New Mom:

    “It’s a lot harder than people say.” – Katie

    A newborn takes a lot of energy from Mom. Why not be helpful and make their transition into their new lifestyle smoother?

    Our current gifting obsession is Simone Leblanc Gift Boxes ($50-$750). Their New Mom boxes are super adorable with a variety of relaxing treats for Mom as well as come chic baby accessories. 


    Since new moms are busy focusing most of their time and energy on their new little one, a face mask is a great gift for some real R&R time. We love recommending our Firm & Lift Hydrogel Mask ($16)  to any busy person. It helps revive tired, dull skin (aka women with newborns who get zero sleep).


    Another thoughtful gift is a housecleaning with Handy (they also do furniture assembly, interior painting, and more!).  Things can get a little crazy with a new baby and clean the house is often the last thing a new mom wants to do so take why not take some pressure off her to-do list?

    While the house is getting clean, spend the day exploring outside with the kids. We love the idea of giving mom a S’well Bottle ($25-$45) and doing a family hike. Stay hydrated and active! Just remember to double cleanse after!


    All women:

    “I love having a morning breakfast with my family, but I also would love the gift of time to get a few things done on my project list. Painting that hallway, cleaning out the garage… things I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Plus, if the family helps it’s a bonus.” -Teri

    Treat mom to a little much need me-time. This could be a facial at The Institute at Erno Laszlo (Price Upon Request) or a UTO (unpaid time off). Give them the day to treat themselves and do things they’ve been meaning to do.

    olivia wilde

    If you could start again, what would you tell your 20-year-old self about skincare? Or Piece of skincare advice?

    DRINK MORE WATER! And start taking care of your skin before you end up trying to fix it. I wish at age 16...or even 20 I focused on my skin as much as I do now! It would probably have prevented or at least delayed the ~*aging*~ concerns I have now.


    Catherine: 30-Something


    What are your main skincare concern(s)?

    Uneven skin tone and hormonal breakouts.

    Skincare/Makeup junkie or minimalist?

    Skincare junkie, makeup minimalist!  Will try any mask, serum or moisturizer you give me.  Makeup routine is pared down to a tinted moisturizer, concealer, brow gel and mascara.

    How did you first learn about skincare?

    My mom, in my early teens. She is a pretty religious dermatologist and aesthetician visitor, so I learned early about going to the dermatologist for any and all skin concerns.  Unfortunately, it began due to teenage pimples but evolved into cleansing as the foundation, moisturizer, and SPF when I was a teen.  Once you’re out of the house, good habits fall by the wayside. After college, a friend was a beauty editor, so she had me try A LOT of skincare products in my early 20’s.  It allowed me to experiment as well as find the right combination of products to help with my concerns.

    Tell us about your fav Erno Laszlo product(s)? and why!

    Hands down the Firmarine Hydrogel Mask – best way to spend 20 minutes decompressing & your skin feels refreshed, hydrated, firm and smooth.  I pack these with me whenever I travel and make sure I use one when I land or the morning after a flight.  I also love the Firmarine Moisturizer SPF 30 because it has SPF.  In the summer, it's all I use and I can pare down my makeup routine even further (eliminate the tinted moisturizer and use Firmarine + concealer)


    Tell us about your skincare routine (AM/PM)? 

    Mornings are usually quick, I use a facial wipe and a toner.  Then follow with a hydrating serum & Firmarine SPF 30 + my go-to makeup: concealer, brow gel, mascara and sometimes tinted moisturizer. 

     Evenings I take more time, double cleanse (Sensitive OR White Marble), toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer.

    sensitive double cleanse wm double cleanse

    When you travel, what is the must-have skincare product you take with you?

    Hydrogel masks, moisturizer, and a face mister to freshen up in flight or when I’m feeling a little tight.

    Which celeb do you think has gorgeous skin?

    I once passed Iman on the street in Soho.  I literally did a double take she was so beautiful.  Her skin is flawless.


    If you could start again, what would you tell your 20-year-old self about skincare? Or Piece of skincare advice?

    Never, ever forget sunscreen & eye cream. Don’t start eye cream when you start to see crow’s feet, it’s will be too late if you do this!


    Mimi: 40-Something


    What are your main skincare concern(s)?  

    Dryness and wrinkles at my age! 

    Skincare/Makeup junkie or minimalist? 

    I'm an Erno Laszlo junkie (love all the cleansing bars and moisturizers) and a makeup minimalist (concealer, mascara and a lip gloss or lipstick).

    How did you first learn about skincare? 

    I was in my 20's and used Clearasil products and Stridex for acne issues if any.

    Tell us about your fav Erno Laszlo product(s)? and why!

    I am obsessed with the Firmarine Hydrogel Mask.  As a working mom of 2, it's a quick and effective mask that makes my face feel tight and moisturized all day! I also use the Firmarine SPF 30 Moisturizer to protect from the sun. 


    Tell us about your skincare routine (AM/PM)? 

    Sensitive or White Marble Cleansing Bars and Light Controlling lotion in AM, then Firmarine SPF 30 Moisturizer.


    At night, Sensitive or Sea Mud Cleansing Bar. I usually use Sensitive Cleansing Bar but mix in the Sea Mud Bar if I need a deeper wash! After cleansing, I use the Firmarine Lifting Serum. Night moisturizers, I love are the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask and the Phormula 3-9 Repair Cream.  Also, Transphuse Eye Refiner is a must!


    When you travel, what is the must-have skincare product you take with you? 

    Any Erno Laszlo Cleansing Bar, Light Controlling Lotion, and SPF Moisturizer.

    Which celeb do you think has gorgeous skin?  

    Jennifer Lopez. Continues to be flawless!


    If you could start again, what would you tell your 20-year-old self about skincare? 

    Avoid the Sun!  A piece of skincare advice?  Always remove makeup no matter how tired you are and drink lots of water!  


  • Spring Refresh

    The Laszlo Latest
    March 15, 2017

    Refresh. Renew. Revamp. Spring time is nature’s makeover and the perfect time to reinvent your routine. And sometimes the best way to find that new you is to put things back in order. Here at Erno Laszlo, we’re all about maintaining that healthy, balanced lifestyle at home, at work, and with our skin – making sure to leave the extremes for winter. From a much-needed spring clean to an essential spring break, we asked our team here at Erno what the best ways are to click refresh for the season.

    Make You Time

    Kids. Jobs. Apartments. Pets. Friends. We spend so much of our days making sure everyone else is okay, it’s hard to take the time for a little self-reflection. Let the new season bring in some much-needed self-love and find a balance in your you time. How about some ultimate relaxation with a facial at the Institute, Erno Laszlo’s flagship in New York City, or an at-home ritual refresh with our Transphuse Rapid Renewal or illuminating Vitamin C-Peel. Whether it’s a night out with friends or a night in with yourself, a date with bey or a date with the beauty professionals at Lazlo, take a couple hours to just do you. 

    Make One Healthy Change

    We always say this, but if there is an unhealthy habit you’ve been wanting to kick, the change of season is a great way to get motivated. It could be as simple as drinking more water to reach that 8 -10 glasses a day goal, or it could be the time to really quit smoking (plus, your skin will thank you). Or maybe it’s time to actually stick to your new year’s resolutions to get fit in the a more temperate climate. Start now and try to have a positive outlook at your progress, giving yourself props when you meet small goals. For us, it’s to remember to wash our face every night – even after that glass of wine when bed looks so tempting. It’s a small step to a big change. Spending just two minutes to double cleanse will save your skin, leave you blemish-free, and ready to tackle all your other spring goals.

    Make A Trip

    Post-holiday at the office can be a bummer. Get out of that cubicle hibernation, book some PTO days, and find yourself somewhere new this spring. Puerto Rico, Paris, Vancouver – the world is your oyster (or baguette, or poutine). Go somewhere totally different or visit a friend or a family member to refresh, inspire and reboot your brain. To keep skin at its best during your travels we LOVE our Double Cleanse Travel Duos. It’s the perfect size for TSA, comes with a convenient travel case, and keeps your skin comfortable while you’re out of your comfort zone.

    Make A Difference

    Whatever it is about warm weather that makes us want to empty out our closets and start fresh, be impulsive, shake things up and do some good. Take a day going through old clothes, unworn impulse buys, and unused beauty products and donate to friends or your local shelter. Nothing is more rewarding than a clutter free lifestyle and a chance to give to others, plus, minimalism is SO in this year.
