Makeup School - The Start

I'll be posting about the process I go through while attending my makeup artistry certification. I registered for this course at a local college near my home in California, I was happy when I found it since it was way cheaper then the schools that I previously looked into that cost over $1,000.
The website says:
The Makeup Artistry Certification program consists of six classes: Beauty Makeup and the 101 Basics; The Eyes Have It; Runway/Drama; Character Makeup; Bridal Bliss and Makeup in Review. All classes must be taken to receive a certificate of completion

I start my course April 21, 2013 and heres the list of supplies I will need:

Makeup remover wipes
Mixing palette/palette knife
Makeup sponges, sponge applicators, mascara wands, tissues
Various makeup brushes
Makeup pencil sharpener
brush cleaner
Foundations (various from light to dark)
Concealors (light to dark)
Pressed or loose powders (various colors or invisible)
Eye shadows (mostly matte)
False lashes and adhesive
Tweezers, scissors, eyelash curler, 
hand sanitizer, hair clips
Various lip (nude shades preferred), eye, and eyebrow pencils
Lipsticks (warm and cool colors)
Mascara (black)

Its not listed here but a makeup case will be needed also. Ive made the purchases, most of which have been online so I have packages coming and thats fun, right? That will start the "What came in the mail" series on my blog, so stay tuned to see what came and I'll share cost and where I got it from also. Excited.
