After graduating with a degree in Illustration Photography from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, I took my knowledge of lighting, styling and art and began my career at MAC Cosmetics. I had the privilege of working with some of the most talented artists in the industry. I will always appreciate the extensive training I received from MAC and the artists who helped me refine my skill. I continued my education at Aesthetics Science Institute in 2008 and I am now a Licensed Esthetician. Since 2003, I have focused on building a strong portfolio and a successful freelance career.

I specialize in seamless airbrush makeup application to ensure that your wedding photographs will be timeless forever. I was recently married in 2010 and I fully understand the importance of choosing the best of the best in the wedding industry. It is extremely important to feel comfortable and relaxed around the vendors you choose for your wedding day.

I am so happy to be working in the wedding industry and making people feel flawlessly beautiful on such important days in their lives. I adore each of my brides and I am so lucky to call this my work.

Riki and SMA exceeded my expectations! Riki came recommended to me by a friend and I will continue to recommend her services to future brides. Riki is extremely easy to work with, responsive, and crazy talented. I live out of town from SMA and had not met prior for a trial but Riki made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. If anyone is looking to book Riki but cannot make a trial, do not have any reservations! I typically do not wear much makeup but Riki captured exactly what I was looking for to maintain a romantic, timeless look. Riki is the only person in the area I found that did airbrush makeup (for a fair price), which I could not recommend more. Throughout the night, the makeup never altered and my skin felt light. My bridesmaids and MOG also had her services and all received so many compliments on how lovely they all looked. The other girls also expressed throughout the day and into the evening how happy they were with her services.

Riki is awesome!!!!!! There is not enough words or time to describe how much I would recommend her to anyone!!! She is so talented and will make you look like a million dollars!!!!! She is very flexible and responds to every text or email very quickly. She def. takes pride in what she does and it shows in her work. She uses airbrush makeup and it seriously lasts all day long even after a night of dancing you will go to sleep looking like what you did when you first had your makeup done.

Where do I even start? Riki is incredible. Not only is she incredibly talented and makes you look absolutely gorgeous, she's so nice and responsive, and an overall delight to work with. I booked her over a year before my wedding, and she followed up regularly with me throughout the year, which really helped put my mind at ease. Her and her assistant Angel did the make-up for my entire wedding party as well as the MOB amd MOG, and everyone was raving about the make-up all night. I had an outdoor ceremony and it was really hot the day of my wedding (around 90 degrees!). My venue was also partially outdoors so I was definitely sweaty all night, and the make-up on my face never budged. I also don't look shiny in the any of the pictures. Everyone told me at the end of the night my makeup looked like I had just gotten it done. Anyway, I can go on, but please book Riki! You won't regret it! I'm looking forward to her new product line too!

Perfection! Riki is simply amazing and will make you look and feel the most beautiful you have ever felt on your wedding day! She was beyond wonderful to work with, responded to emails/texts in a timely manner and was one of my favorite people to work with on my wedding day! My mother and all of my bridesmaids had their makeup and eyelashes done and for many this was the first time ever getting the airbrush makeup and they all LOVED it and looked like movie stars!! Your makeup will look just as gorgeous ten hours later as it did when you first had it put on and I can honestly say that the calmest I felt the morning of my wedding was when I got my makeup done! Riki is one of a kind and the best at what she does. I would highly recommend her and most importantly you can trust that she will make you look flawless and beautiful for your special occasion! I can't wait to go to another event just to get my makeup done by her again!!

Riki does an absolutely fabulous job on making you look absolutely flawless. On the day of my wedding, I never felt more confident and beautiful thanks to her. Her services are sought after so much that most brides book their wedding date around her schedule. She is very professional, honest and has the nicest things to say about everyone. Riki also does spray tans, fake lashes and makeup classes. She's a rare find, so book her right away.

Riki was awesome!!! She listens to you and what you want and the result is amazing! The airbrush makeup lasted literally all day and through many tears, as well as smushed caked!! Riki did my makeup, as well as my maid of honor, bridesmaid, and mother and everyone looked PERFECT. My bridesmaid accidentally fell asleep with her makeup on and said when she woke up, her makeup was still perfect and lashes still on! Riki is very sweet and very professional, but she talks to you like a friend and definitely makes you feel comfortable. She is also doing makeup for my sister's wedding in the fall and I can't wait!

Syracuse Makeup Artistry was the best decision for my wedding! Riki was a huge help throughout my wedding planning and provided so many services- it was convenient to be able to go to one place for different services- and she was always very quick to respond to my emails which made planning much easier on me. She made me look so beautiful on my wedding day! I would definitely recommend Riki to anyone for make up, spray tans, and waxing- she is such a great person to work with. Thank you so much Riki for making me look as amazing as I was hoping I would on my wedding day!!

I don’t think I can say enough nice things about Riki and her work. She was such a pleasure to work with during my makeup trial and wedding. My makeup on my wedding day looked amazing,– I even convinced my mother to have her makeup done (she was very hesitant at first since she has never had it professionally done) and she absolutely loved it! Riki is so sweet and calming, and very professional. I wish I could have my makeup done by her every day, and will definitely be calling her in the future to have my makeup done again.

If you want to look flawless on your wedding day, then Riki at Syracuse Makeup Artistry is who you need. My whole wedding party looked amazing with airbrush makeup and false lashes. The best part is that her makeup lasted all day and night, and then some:) Riki knows what she is doing, she has a great eye for what will look good on each individual and she is willing to customize your look to what you want. Riki was prompt, flexible and everyone was done in time for the festivities to begin! Thank you Riki for making me feel & look beautiful on my BIG day!

Riki was amazing. She has such a sweet personality. She came to our hotel and did my make-up as well as my MOH, BMs, moms, MOG, and FG. Everyone raved about her. In addition to her glowing personality, she did a phenomenal makeup job. It lasted well past the reception and looked amazing in the pictures. Her prices were more than reasonable. Would highly recommend her! Thank you Riki!

Riki was absolutely amazing to work with. She helped make my wedding visions come to life. I do not wear a ton of makeup and the airbrush and products she uses make you look flawless. My mother also never wears any makeup and was a little weary about getting her makeup done on the day of my wedding, but when she looked at pictures from that day, she could not say enough good things about the outcome and how beautiful she felt too. I would recommend anyone to work with Riki <3

Riki was so accommodating and wonderful to work with! She was able to complete my makeup as well as my bridesmaids in a short time frame. I am not one to wear cover up or foundation so I was nervous to have a ton of makeup on. The air brushing that Riki did was flawless and I didn't feel like I even had make up on! I went the non traditional route and had a dramatic look with smokey eyes and LOVED it! She did such a fantastic job and my makeup lasted all day through sweat and tears and truly looked great in my pictures. I highly highly highly recommend her for your big day or any event! I plan to use her again repeatedly in the future! I also did a spray tan with her and I generally have turned orange in the past but I was beyond pleased with the results and everyone commented on how natural it looked! I felt incredible the day of my wedding and I owe a huge thanks to Riki!

Riki was absolutely amazing! I cannot imagine having a more perfect makeup artist for my wedding day. You worry about so many things going wrong while preparing for your wedding day. Knowing that I did not have to worry for 1 single second about my makeup looking beautiful was priceless. Not only did she do a fantastic job on myself, she did a fantastic job on the mothers and several of my bridesmaids without even a trial or picture to go from. She was super accomodating and very responsive. Having the type A personality that I have, I loved how quick she was to respond to my emails and how organized she was. She provided me with a schedule and squeezed people in last minute. She was also super amazing with both crazy mothers:) I would highly, highly recommend Riki for any type of event!

I really enjoyed working with Riki. She is very talented, upbeat and professional. I was extremely calm and excited the morning of my wedding because my hair and makeup traveled to me. This made the morning less stressful and a whole lot of fun. We enjoyed not having to worry about a thing and sat back and got pampered. The makeup on all my girls, as well as myself, was flawless. I couldn't have chosen a better makeup artist.

I could not be more pleased with the makeup that Riki from Syracuse Makeup Artistry did for my wedding. I had my trial six months prior to my wedding day, and Riki remembered exactly what I wanted. Her technique is flawless and she is so good at what she does. My mother & bridesmaids also loved how they looked. Everyone looked like a more beautiful, natural version of themselves. I'd also like to point out how sweet and calm Riki is during the process. The last thing a bride wants is to work with people who are going to make the day more stressful than it needs to be. Riki was on time, happy to be there, and ready to go. It was a pleasure to work with a vendor who was kind, fun and positive all day long. She is extremely professional but also so sweet and fun to be around that it made the experience even better. I would recommend Syracuse Makeup Artistry to every bride!

Riki was absolutely amazing!!!! Not only was she a consummate professional in terms of her responsiveness and approach to me as a client, but she is a true artist. My makeup was impeccable, lasted the entire day and I loved how she made look and feel absolutely glamorous and gorgeous. She listened to what I wanted (and didn't want), worked with me on elements I wanted to change and was always very attentive and accommodating. Riki also happens to be one of the sweetest people you'll ever want to meet and definitely put me at ease on the wedding day. I couldn't have asked for more!

I had my makeup airbrushed for my wedding, done by Angel. She did an amazing job and was such a sweetheart both during my trial and the actually wedding day. She really made me feel and look like a princess, and she was so encouraging and understanding when I told her exactly what I wanted. I would hire her to do my makeup everyday if I could!!

Riki was nothing short of amazing, flexible and kind! I had never had my makeup done professionally so it was great to have the trial session and to get a glimpse of what my makeup would be like on the wedding day. I wanted to tweak a couple of things on the wedding day and she was so good to me! I LOVED my makeup! I loved that she came to me that day, I was so relaxed while she did my makeup! Hope to work with Riki again someday for special occasions!

From my makeup trial appointment to getting ready on my wedding day, Riki was absolutely fabulous to work with. She was patient and professional, and nailed my wedding day makeup on the first try. She immediately understood what I wanted and expertly created the look I was hoping for. On my wedding day Riki also did the makeup for my bridesmaids and my mother, giving them each an individual look that catered to their unique personalities and style. We were all thrilled with Riki's quality of work and flexibility, not to mention her incredibly reasonable pricing. Our makeup lasted all morning, through an outdoor wedding on a HOT summer afternoon, dinner, lots of dancing, and an after party that kept us out until 3am. We all looked and felt amazing the whole day through! Thank you, Riki!!

Riki is an amazing makeup artist, and I am extremely happy that I found her website one night while searching for a makeup artist in the Syracuse area! She is truly talented in her profession. Not only did she make me look and feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day, she also made my mom look gorgeous. Two weeks before my wedding, my mother had fallen. She had a severe cut on the bridge of her nose and on her lip, which required stitches. The stitches were removed only days before my wedding and there was still a visible deep scar in both locations. Her right eye and cheek were also bruised. My mom was so upset thinking that this had happened to her right before her daughter's wedding. Riki assured me that she would be able to make my mom look absolutely gorgeous and she kept her promise! No one could even tell that my mom had fallen. All of the bruising had been beautifully covered and one could not even see the scar on her nose and lip. Our makeup looked so natural as well and was not overly done like I have seen in so many other weddings. My wedding ceremony was at 1:00 PM and my reception did not begin until 7:00 PM and ended at 11:00 PM. At 11:00 PM, my makeup still looked flawless! I would highly recommend Riki to anyone!

I hired Riki for my wedding day makeup after hearing about her through a friend and seeing her pictures online. I did a trial on the day of my bridal shower (which made for pretty pictures) and on the day of my wedding I had both Riki and Angel doing makeup with eyelashes for 8 girls in my bridal party.


Everyone was beyond thrilled with how their makeup came out and every girl looked so gorgeous and my pictures are flawless because of it! I received so many compliments on my makeup. I highly recommend Syracuse Makeup Artistry for your wedding day and to have as many girls in your bridal party join in on the fun! My makeup application was at 10am and after a full day of celebrating and plenty of tears, it looked beautiful at the end of the night! Riki is amazing, she is a great person to have around on your wedding day. Make sure she is one of the first vendors you book! THANK YOU RIKI! :)

Riki did an absolutely fabulous job on our makeup!!! All of my girls looked amazing and I couldn't be happier with the look she created for me as well. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup. Riki created a look for me that looked natural and I didn't need to touch it up all night. Through pictures, dancing, and more dancing the look stayed fresh. I would definitely HIGHLY recommend Riki for any special event!

I am so pleased to be able to have the opportunity to add a review for Riki. Riki is not only a talented and professional artist, but also a compassionate, sincere and calming force that will no doubt improve your potentially stressful or chaotic wedding morning. I was so happy to see her walk through the door the day of our wedding.

My entire wedding party was so thankful to be able to get their make up done by Riki. She makes every girl in her chair feel special and catered to based on their individual needs.

Unfortunately, I had a couple of stress break outs the week prior to the wedding. Luckily, I knew Riki's application and products would transform me into the radiant bride I had always hoped to be. Riki was also very helpful with scheduling the morning of our wedding efficiently based on our day of timeline.

I look forward to using Riki's resources in the future for our future events- be it New Years Eve, other friend's weddings or just a special date night with my new husband. Also, cannot wait to stop by and see her new studio and get a spray tan with my SIL!

Thank you for everything Riki, you are truly the most talented make up artist in Upstate, NY and I have loved every minute of our process together. All the Best, Katie Romagno

Riki was SPECTACULAR ... and I don’t use that word lightly! I am a little hard to please, I like to be in control and never had my makeup done by anyone before. I definitely had my reservations about relying on someone else to do one of the most important things on a bride’s wedding day - her makeup. That was until I met Riki. She immediately made me feel comfortable with her professionalism and warm personality. She is a very talented makeup artist and came up with a look for me that far exceeded my expectations! My mother-in-law’s and bridesmaids’ makeup was also flawless, from the colors she chose to the airbrushing and lashes - they were stunning! I really could not have been more pleased. I have recommended Riki to a number of women I know (some engaged, some not) and highly recommend her to you too. Contact her - you won’t be disappointed!

Riki was amazing in every way. My wedding morning was totally hectic and she was very professional in EVERY way. She was scheduled to apply make-up for myself as well as 4 of my 6 bridesmaids. She not only did that with ease and perfection, she did the make-up on my flower girl (she was on cloud 9 cause she got her make-up done too! Riki - you made her day!!) and was able to "fix" the make-up of my remaining 2 bridesmaids, all while keeping me on schedule so I wasn't late to the ceremony. I have never felt more comfortable with a professional as I felt with her. She was truely my saving grace that morning. She was able to ease any fears and concerns I had and actually managed to make me laugh. The best part...after the ceremony my husband told me he has never seen me look more beautiful, and I have RIKI to thank for that.
If anyone is hesitant about spending money on make-up, you HAVE to do it. Trust me, it's worth it. I cried a ton that day and come 2am I still looked amazing.

Riki - words can not thank you enough. You were my gift from heaven that day!

I live in South Florida, but recently got married in Upstate New York on October 7th, 2011. I conducted a few months of research trying to find a professional makeup artist with the talent and professional attitude that would best fit my expectations and needs. Time and time again after speaking with wedding industry professionals Riki Lebied with Syracuse Makeup Artistry was recommended very highly across the board. When I initially contact Riki I could tell right away that I had made a good decision by her organization and professional business manner. I soon met with Riki for my personalized consultation and we were able to discuss my preferences and vision of how I wanted my bridal makeup for my wedding day. Riki the owner of Syracuse Makeup Artistry provided me with Five Star service form the initial makeup consultation right up until the day of the wedding. I have never felt or looked more beautiful then I did on my wedding day because Riki created my bridal makeup look. All of my bridesmaid took Riki’s business card and information for when they get married regardless if they lived out of state or not. Thank you so much Riki and Syracuse Makeup Artistry for creating such a memorable experience for myself and my bridal party. Sincerely, Noelle Spatuzzi

I felt so confident that she was in charge of my bridal look. She knew exactly what I wanted during the trial and I was so excited with my appearance after our session. I felt like "a bride" and it was so much fun! She also recommended that my brows be shaped and was able to do that for me just a few days before the wedding. I am so happy I chose her to be my makeup artist. I will refer her to all of my friends! Thank you Riki!

My husband said he couldn't take his eyes off of me for the first half hour of our ceremony :) I honestly felt so gorgeous and it is because of Riki.

Riki was absolutely amazing to work with! I already knew her work couldn't be surpassed since she was the makeup artist for a friends wedding. It was such a weight off my shoulders knowing she would be there the day of, I never once had to worry if it would turn out how I wanted. My makeup was flawless from 11am to 1am. My Bridesmaids were all very skeptical about having their makeup done, and they couldn't have been more thrilled with how it turned out. People actually came up to me during the reception to tell me how flawless and beautiful my makeup was. She was also great working with up to the wedding. She was extremely accommodating and responsive.

I was beyond happy with the results, as was my family and husband! Extremely wonderful to work with, flexible and accommodating, and very willing to give me the look I desired for my wedding day. I would have paid a lot more for the service provided on this very special day by Syracuse Makeup Artistry.

Riki is an absolutely incredible and talented makeup artist, a consummate professional, and a pleasure to work with. I trusted her to make me feel beautiful on the most important day of my life, and she did just that by doing my makeup and the makeup of my bridesmaids on my wedding day. Riki uses her skills as a makeup artist to bring out a person's beauty through her artistry without hiding their true self. Riki took time to listen to and understand my wishes and brought them to life; I felt so confident and so beautiful. I recommend Riki regularly to my friends and family and would trust her always. She understands the particular demands and requirements of wedding makeup: her work stands up to intense photography and to a long day's wear. She is organized, communicative, and a talent you would expect to be working in one of the major fashion capitols and we are so lucky to have her in the Central New York area.

I had a wonderful experience with Riki. I found her on my own actually; I was just searching for make up artists in the Syracuse area. It was awesome that her name was the first search result to come up and I clicked it and was very impressed with her website. I emailed her and before I knew it I had a response immediately. I set up a trial date for my bridal shower and she came to my parents house. Riki was very professional and very friendly. Had so many options of colors etc. when she opened up all her make up and put it on the table. My make up came out amazing. Right then and there I booked her for my wedding. I only planned on her doing my make up but I was so impressed on how amazing my makeup came out, I ended up having her do my whole bridal party and my mother. I was very happy with how well my moms make up came out, she made her look amazing. All my bridesmaids looked amazing and so did mine. I am glad I chose Riki. I will be calling her when I need my makeup done again. I am always referring people to her, even if its not for wedding and they need their make up done for some other event. I feel this service was amazing. She is very talented. Thanks Riki!

First, I really like Riki! She is very kind, fun, and so talented. She came to the hotel to do everyone's makeup, bringing an assistant with her, and they were great to have around. I hired her sight unseen because I was planning my wedding from overseas. When we finally met 5 days before the wedding for my trial run, we had already exchanged pictures and inspiration via email, and she got my style right away. I don't wear a lot of makeup day-to-day, and just wanted to look like a more polished and photogenic version of myself. After the trial run, we had our engagement photos and the makeup looked so fabulous in them! Riki's work made me feel like a princess on my wedding day, and I think my bridesmaids would 100% agree. The look was natural, classic and romantic -- just want I wanted.

A few of my bridesmaids thought the price was a little expensive but I think it was worth every penny. All the girls looked gorgeous and my make up was perfect. I had two trials prior to my wedding day which I suggest for brides. That way you get to know Riki and she knows what looks good on your skin, etc.

Riki was a lifesaver she was able fortunately to work with me last minute because the other person I scheduled told me a week before my wedding that she would be unable to make our appointment. I think things happen for a reason and the way Riki did my make-up was absolutely beautiful. I was complimented by everyone at my rehearsal dinner which took place after my trial with Riki and on my wedding day I could not look any better if I had tried. I needed a artist wiling to travel and Riki was able to do that for a reasonable price. She was extremely friendly and professional, I enjoyed having her do my make-up and welcoming her in to my home.

I have used Riki in several weddings I have been a part of and have absolutely loved her work every time. My makeup is always FLAWLESS even after I am a sobbing mess! I love the time she takes on each client, creating a unique style that works best for them. My makeup even looks great the next day, eyelashes stay on, and even after sweating I feel like I look fresh which is SO important for pictures! I never felt over-done or that I didn't look like myself even when I went with a more dramatic look. She is professional, personable, and timely. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic makeup artist that will make your ideal look a reality! I think her prices are fairly standard for a GOOD makeup artist in Syracuse, perhaps a little high for brides on a strict budget. In my opinion you get what you pay for and the work she does is well worth the price.

"Have makeup..will travel"... I'm old school. For weddings we put on our own makeup. My daughter-in-law wanted to have it professionally done, so I looked into it. Wow, wish this was available back in my day. After her trial I decided to have mine done too. From young to old Riki made us look spectacular. Didn't think my daughter-in-law could look any more beautiful but she did. Thank you Riki for the experience and for making our day so special. and PS-even our makeup lasted through all the tears...

She ran a very tight schedule, and everyone was made up in time for when the photographer arrived! Her airbrush technique is AMAZING - it stayed on the entire day, even after sweating on the dance floor! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist for any event!

I was so glad to have chosen Riki to do my makeup for my wedding. During my trial I showed her some pictures that she considered, but then we discussed options she thought might work better with my complexion. Her recommendations were perfect! The day of my wedding Riki arrived bright and early to make-up myself, my sister, sister in law, and mom, but when my bridesmaids saw how fabulous we looked, she made time to give all the girls fake lashes which they loved! I would definitely refer Riki to all the future brides out there!
