No. You shouldn't use regular foundation with your air brush machine.
I have been looking for airbrush makeup at a super affordable price because I just don't use it often. I have the OCC tiny set in both tones but I would like to try something different.
So I found a company and a voucher discount code for Belletto Makeup.
Belletto Studio Makeup http://bellettostudio.com/belletto-experience
discount voucher code for any item on the site - lisa60
The price drops from $24.95 to $8.73 for the airbrush foundation (each). There are over 20 shades.
Belletto Labs is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben free, silicone free, oil free, and non-cross contaminated. All of the products are cruelty free.
Hope this helps,
