We had the good fortune of connecting with Te’Asia Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Te’Asia, how do you think about risk?
I used to be scared to take risk (well… I still kinda am) but I mean, isn’t it normal to be a little scared depending on how big the risk could be? Though it can be scary, I’ve learned if you really want to be successful you have to take the risk and BET ON YOURSELF! It’s a game changer for me.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m an Atlanta based Makeup Artist, that in itself is a challenge. If you were to ask any mua, pro or newbie, what their biggest challenge was I’m sure they’d say the oversaturation of the industry. I used to feel this way until I had to realize, that although there are many talented artist here, no one can do exactly what I do. I make sure I’m asking questions about my clients skin, ie. “what’s your at home skin routine like?”, “Do have any allergies?” Etc. I provide great customer service to my clients because I want to make sure that I’m not just putting makeup on the face but caring for the skin as well.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Honestly, I personally enjoy my serenity by staying home but when I do go out I like to go to spots most people don’t know about. I would take her to this quiet little sushi place in SW Atlanta called Bottle Rocket Roll to get some of their delicious sushi rolls then to midtown bowl, where we can bowl, eat, & they even have a nice bar where you can order drinks. Now, If she’s looking for night life spots, lol I wouldn’t know where to start!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Most definitely my support system! My family & friends, they keep me motivated to continue to push forward.
