skip it. face and body is better hand applied.

if your looking for a cost effective foundation to airbrush try revlon colorstay, thinned down a bit. works great and give good coverage

You can thin any silicone foundation to airbrush with some 244 or equivalent.  I've airbrushed Mac Face & Body and the results were ok.  It was a bit too oily for me airbrushed but it is possible.

I dislike MAC's face and body foundation. The colours go a bit too orange for my liking.

I love MUFE's face and body foundation. If you're looking for something cost-effective then Revlon Colorstay is a good bet. Just thin it down with 244 or any silicone thinner. I personally like Temptu's thinner.

You can also thin out MUFE HD with 244 as well as they're both silicone based. That works well, too.

That is very interesting. I would never thought of using revlon colorstay foundation for airbrushing. Thanks for the tip!! Now i have to invest in a airbrush machine. Anyone know any inexpensive air brush machines? Let me know please.

Buy a good quality airbrush machine and gun from amazon. You can get them for fairly good prices on there. I personally own the Iwata Ninja and an Iwata Eclipse gun. The cost difference for good stuff vs. shotty stuff isn't that much and once you buy a gun/machine it really should last a lifetime if properly cared for.

As for airbrush makeup I currently use Camera Ready Cosmetics airbrush formula which is waterbased and very inexpensive. I am getting a second gun soon so that I can do silicone based makeup from Temptu because I fellow artist is selling me her set.

Here is a link to the CRC airbrush makeup. The size for the sample is actually really large and I honestly haven't even made a dent in most of them.
