About Syracuse Makeup Artistry

NYS Licensed Esthetician & Professional Makeup Artist

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.

Happy wedding planning!

I am so happy Riki was available to do mine and my bridesmaids' makeup for my wedding! I met Riki when she did my makeup for my sister's wedding and knew I had to have her! She is so talented and made everyone look gorgeous. I truly didn't have a makeup look in mind at all. I quickly found a picture on Riki's instagram that I liked, and she was able to just go off that to create a look that I LOVED and also complimented my wedding dress. Throughout the process of doing my makeup, she constantly made sure to ask if I wanted more liner, lashes, etc. So many people (including some of the guys!) made comments about how beautiful all the women looked. Thanks so much Riki!

I should also mention that all of our hair was done by Danielle Leubner (I can't find her page to review but know that her and Riki work together frequently). Danielle is AMAZING!! I decided on a classic bun and she absolutely nailed it! All my bridesmaids hair looked phenomenal as well, and many commented that it was the first time they loved their hair when being in a wedding! All of them brought her a picture of what they wanted and she was able to do it no problem even with some of the more complicated hairstyles. She was even kind enough to wait (while my mom buttoned my dress) to attach my veil. I am so so thankful for both Danielle and Riki! If you are looking for hair and makeup, look no further!

Riki is AMAZING! She came strongly recommended by two of my coworkers who have been using her since they were 15 years old. She's seen one of them grow up. Also, another good friend recommend her. She actually said to me that she scheduled her wedding around Riki being available. Like this is how good Riki is. There are literally no words. We did a trial last August 2016 and since then I said I would never go to anyone else ever to do my makeup. She did my engagement session make up in October 2016 and I looked STUNNING! It's like all of the reviews say she makes you look like a better YOU! I am Hispanic and have darker skin and I was so happy that she was able to work with me perfectly. Everything looked so natural and just enhanced. It was my first time having someone do my makeup and me being absolutely head over heels. I mean I am like trying to find reasons to go back to her and have my make up done and I don't even wear make up on a regular basis. For my wedding, I ended up having Riki do my make up and the moms, my grandma and my sister. My grandma and mom do not speak English very well but Riki made them feel so comfortable, talked to them so nicely and walked them through the process. They looked so stunning. I recommend her 100%. Ladies you want Riki, you want the airbrush make up and you want the lashes!!!!! Can't wait until the fall when I have other events and get to see Riki again.

I can't say enough good things about Riki, and I truly mean that. The first time I met her was to get a spray tan for my cousin's wedding in 2013. Not only was it my first spray tan, I was also hobbling around on crutches. Riki was so friendly and helpful (even holding my purse and the door for me on my way out, until I got myself together.) Needless to say, that was my first of many spray tans with her! She also did our makeup for my cousin's wedding, as well as a few others I have been in (including my own.) She's seriously fantastic and a true artist! She listens to her clients, makes them feel comfortable and helps them look exactly the way they want to. If I could have her do my makeup every single day, I would. She is one of the nicest and most talented people I've been fortunate enough to meet. My wedding day was honestly the best because it started off on a high note when she (as well as the rest of her team) pampered us and made us all look gorgeous. I really cannot say enough good things about her (and the fact that she sells her own makeup - and it's awesome - is the best!)

Good people to work with...

As a photographer I feel a professional makeup artist is a must for weddings. I highly recommend Riki to all my brides. This is not your average salon makeup. She does a fantastic job, will come to your home and you'll feel like a model for the day. Your pictures will thank you for it!
